    A TVA spokesperson confirmed that a security officer patrolling TVA Watts Bar Nuclear Plant in Spring City was involved in a shootout with a suspect Sunday at about 2:00 a.m.

    The security incident happened on the Tennessee River side of the plant property, more than a quarter mile from the plantís protected area, which houses its reactor and power production facilities.

    TVA spokesperson Jim Hopson said the subject traveled up to the plant on a boat and walked onto the property. When the officer questioned the suspect, the individual fired multiple shots at the officer. The officer shot back, and when he called for backup, the suspect sped away on his boat.

    They are triangulating how the GOP is to blame for the lack of gun control legislation and how it works for Obamacare...

    To be fair, it's at least as likely in this area that it was some bubba out there spotlighting deer or poaching brim or something like that.

    But it's definitely disconcerting.

    Or someone who is pissed off at a girlfriend who works there, or the ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend works there. That kind of crazy shit happens every day.

    Well, the guy was nowhere near where anyone there works. You'd have to see the place to understand the layout:





    The yellow line basically defines the patrolled perimeter of the plant. The red line is where one may not go farther if one is boating. The Watts Bar dam is just north of the plant, out of the picture frame. This encounter occurred a quarter of a mile outside of the "protected area," which means it happened somewhere around where the blue arrow is.

    He wasn't ever anywhere close to the plant itself.

    Both are unlikely. A poacher most likely would have just run, without shooting at a cop, and a crazy stalker would most likely have avoided a highly secure facility. Most likely case is that this was someone casing the place for a future terrorist act, and that means that the most likely cases are either an eco-terrorist or a jihadi.

    However, if that idiot, Sirota, is worried, I'm sure that we can do a pigmentation check.
