Does anybody know who was piloting the airplane which was doing tricks over Burley Stadium during the BRAC jamboree? As a parent I have a right to know who was jeopardizing my child and why no arrest was made and why the local newspaper did not print a story about it. It is time this protection of certain individuals who abuse other people is stopped.

I believe problems should be taken care of locally if possible. In this case there appears to be no intent to take care of the problem either by the local police or the local newspaper. As a citizen I feel if it is not taken care of locally I should make a complaint to both the FAA and Homeland Security as there appears to be a serious breakdown in local law enforcement.

This is Greeneville, there is more concern for the protection of the airplane pilot than there is for the protection of the kids, parents and fans.

I believe the purpose of the Forum is saving people's lives not taking them away, including the pilot of the plane.

With all due respect: How long have you NOT had a sense of humor? Of course vigilante justice is illegal as is civilian acquisition of a Stinger missile. If the complainant did't get the id number of the plane involved, good luck with Federal interest.

Pardon my lack of sense of humor but an airplane doing low level tricks over a crowded high school football stadium doesn't rise to the level of humor to me. I am no genius on airplanes and their requirements but I would assume the plane probably came out of the local airport.

My attempt at humor was after-the-fact! No, the pilot shouldn't have done that. No one on the ground was injured or hurt in a panicky riot. Yes, the pilot should be identified, reported, apprehended, and grounded. OK?

Did you directly contact anyone in local law enforcement about it?

Are you talking about the jamboree that took place 2 months ago? Why the sudden action? Seems like August would have been the appropriate time to begin this campaign.

At the time it took place it was evident someone notified police as two cruisers with sirens going left the main police station which is near Burley Stadium. The plane left after these two cruisers were dispatched. We are not talking about not knowing who done it by law enforcement, we are talking about nothing being done about it and no report in the paper about it. That is what disgusts you about Greeneville, they know who and they probably know why, drunk, but they cover it up, protecting the guilty, not giving a damn about the innocent.

As I said before, I believe local law enforcement should be given the opportunity to solve local problems and you are right in two months this should have been taken care of, but, the public has a right to know why this took place, who did it and why law enforcement did nothing to assure it would not be done again. Do I believe this person was a terrorist, no, I believe this person was drunk and showing out.

People who go to airshows pay their money and accept the risks, and there are risks as people have been killed. People who go to racing events pay their money and accept the risks, and there are risks as people have been killed. However, people who go to high school football programs did not pay their money to accept risks of show off airplane pilots doing stupid things over the stadium.

What you all fail to realize is that MANY MANY MANY crimes or "suspicious activities" take place which never make the paper. Sometimes, things make the paper but there is never a logical follow-up, in particular if it involves someone "prominent". Many times, when "special deals" are cut with the DA in high profile cases or those which might encourage public outcry, the plea will be made in another county, especially Hawkins. The rationale behind the madness is because Rogersville's paper is only produced once or twice a week & things can slide under the radar, especially if it isn't something which happened in Rogersville or Hawkins Co. Sometimes poor journalism is the result of no news stories.

Oh, I don't know, it could have been coincidence that the patrol cars left around the time this was occurring given the proximity to the Police Station but that would be speculation rather than fact. Is it assumption or a known fact the pilot was drunk? Rest assured I'm not taking sides but rather playing devil's advocate as I'm new to the area but given the postings I've read on this forum, it does appear the citizens here have little faith or regard for local law enforcement. That's a real shame and I hope you get the answers you seek.

Man you hit a nerve! whothehellcares about putting children at risk, you got to be kidding me? Where was the head of our local homeland security office, in the stands laughing, or more important why hasn't he spoken out in the past two months? As for the city police, we all know their problem, they are thoroughly focused on the lower end of the bypass.
