US Air Force Warns People Not To Storm Area 51
SAN ANGELO, TX -- The United States Air Force has sent out a warning to the millions of people who plan to storm Area 51 in September.
On September 20 a group of over 1.3 million people including many San Angeloans are going to attempt to break into the mysterious Area 51 located in Amargosa Valley, Nevada.
Even though this is a joke the US military is not taking the Facebook group so lightly.
“[Area 51] is an open training range for the U.S. Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces,” a military spokeswoman told The Washington Post. “The U.S. Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets."
The mission of the job is of course storming area 51 in hopes to see extraterrestrials. The theme is "They Can't Stop All of Us" but looks like the US government is ready to protect all of its "secrets."
US law forbids trespassing on military bases. According to Section 1382 of Title 18, the law prohibits any person from entering any military installation for any purpose without permission, including a “military, naval, or coast guard reservation, post, fort, arsenal, yard, station or installation.” Anybody found guilty of breaking this law could be subject to six months imprisonment, a $500 fine, or both.
Also military bases have the right to use deadly force and many signs are posted that depict that all around the base.
