Texans are supposed to be friendly and welcoming to strangers. Today Norway TV2 got some great footage at an EagleRidge frack job in Denton, Texas that not only looks unfriendly but looks like industry has something to hide.
I am well aware that the public right of way is between the telephone poles and the road. We were parked well within the public right of way and out of the driveway. We cooperated with the security guard and we were polite. Still he rather flamboyantly walked to the front of the vehicle and wrote down the license number. When asked why he did that, he answered, “Because I have to.”
You might remember that EagleRidge was in local and international news recently because Mark Grawe, Chief Operating Officer at EagleRidge Energy (EagleRidge), stated at a public meeting in Mansfield, Texas that Denton residents are on the Department of Homeland Security’s Watch List. AUDIO
I am guessing they need the license number for the Fracking Mafia’s PSYOPS Database.
The guard called the police who showed up in two cars and seemed to be as confused as we were about why they were called. Again, we were standing and parked in the public right of way. When they asked the guard why he took our license number, he said that he was afraid we might leave. That’s a confusing answer since it seemed making us leave was his objective.
Taking people’s license numbers is an intimidation tactic. I won’t be intimidated by thugs.
