The United States Department of Homeland Security is going to conduct a test for the kind of biological warfare that might be used during a wide-scale terror attack on a city in Oklahoma. However, the residents of Newkirk, OK were only notified of their town’s guinea-pig status by local newspaper ads. The test will involve a "low-level outdoor release of inert chemical and biological simulant materials," the notice reads. The notice provided no other explanation, but rather led readers to a science-heavy website. With a notice like this, what could possibly go wrong?GRRRRR. More complete story from KAKE in Wichita: The tests won't be in Newkirk; they will be on the campus of the former Chilocco Injun School, which is north of Newkirk close to the Kansas border. Given prevailing winds, the toxins will mainly affect Ark City. The Abandoned Okla site has this warning: WARNING: Chilocco Is heavily guarded by both 24/7 security as well as a large pack of guard dogs. This is not a place for you to get in you car and go visit. This is for your online viewing pleasure only. Because this land is being used by law enforcement as practice and training grounds, it is governed by federal police; not local police. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO VISIT CHILOCCO INDIAN SCHOOL. Isn't it just sweet and wonderful to know that """"law"""" """"enforcement"""" has its own concentration camps? GRRRRRRRR. I know Newkirk fairly well. Used to drive through there often, did some repairs on the local grain elevator when I was working in Ponca. Unlike Ponca, Newkirk is NOT an oil town. Unlike Blackwell, Newkirk is NOT a factory town. It's not accustomed to thinking of pollution as a necessary compromise. Ark City is less 'virgin', with a large meatpacking plant that smells like a meatpacking plant.
