Black Choppers, Explosions and Nighttime Urban Exercises Cause Mass Panic in Tinley Park, Illinois

The U.S. Department of Defense’s two-night stint of urban training exercises on the grounds of the closed Tinley Park Mental Health Center ended early Thursday.

H. S. sent this in the email:

Just sending a hat tip to look into Tinley Park IL they have been conducting military drills last night and tonight people have been calling about it scared. A lot of strange things have been happening in the skies here lately.

Three months ago the Department of Defense shot off machine guns over Miami.

The grand finale was Thursday night.
Patch reported:

The highlight of the final night in Tinley Parck, which began Wednesday, April 24, and went until about 1 a.m. Thursday, April 25, were numerous flyovers from military helicopters using the village’s helipad. And even though the drills were being staged in Tinley Park, residents in neighboring Frankfort, Mokena and even as far away as New Lenox reported seeing and hearing the helicopters overhead.

At least 25 calls from panicked residents were made to the police on Thursday night.

This was reported earlier here.
