Video: Family That Owns Property Overlooking Area 51 Speak Out


#Family #Area51 – Video: Family That Owns Property Overlooking Area 51 Speak Out : “But six years before that, they placed a security shack on the road that our grandfather built for access to our own property and started requiring us to go through their checkpoints in order to gain access,” Sheahan-Manning said.

“Now, we’re not saying what they’re doing out there is unimportant and doesn’t need to be protected — we get it. We’ve been alongside these people since 1955,” said Joe Sheahan.

“The truth is you can get more of a view of what’s going on on that base through Google Earth and pictures that are out there all over the Internet,” Sheahan-Manning said.

“What we’re hoping is that our representatives say enough is enough. They need to step in, and they need to fix this,” said Ben Sheahan. Now, in what the Sheahans consider the final insult in a litany of abuse, they are being given an ultimatum by the Air Force.

 They must accept a $5.2 million buyout for the 400 acres in their possession or face having the land condemned and taken through eminent domain. “I mean, that’s really what we’re talking about,” said Joe Sheahan. “Is it okay to bomb your citizens, hold ’em at gunpoint and then – just to add insult to injury – just steal their property?”

The Sheahans say the Air Force offer doesn’t even cover the value of the minerals in the mine – let alone the family’s close connection to the land – where forbearers not only toiled – but died. “Either give us our property, leave us alone, or pay us what you owe us,” Joe Sheahan added.

The Sheahans have until Sept. 10 to accept the Air Force offer. “What the American people have got to realize is if they can do this to us, they can do it to each and every one of them,” Dan Sheahan said.

“So, isn’t it ironic that on September 11th, the United States government is going to finish the last act of what can only be described as a criminal act to take our property,” Joe Sheahan said. “On September 11th, I just find that ironic. Sad.” Source: mysteriousearth
