Couldn’t Stop This One For A Speeding Ticket

Two Texas Highway Patrol Officers were conducting speeding enforcement on Hwy 77, just south of Kingsville, Tx

One of the officers was using a hand held radar device to check speeding vehicles approaching the town of

Kingsville .  The officers were suddenly surprised when the radar gun began reading 300 miles per hour and

climbing. The officer attempted to reset the radar gun, but it would not reset and then it suddenly turned off.

Just then a deafening roar over the Mesquite treetops on Hwy 77 revealed

that the radar had in fact locked on to a USMC F/A-18 Hornet which was engaged in a low flying exercise near it’s Naval Air home base location in Kingsville TX.

Back at the Texas Highway Patrol Headquarters in  Corpus Christi the Patrol

Captain fired off a complaint to the US Naval Base Commander in Kingsville for

shutting down his equipment.
The reply came back in true USMC style:

‘Thank you for your letter….

You may be interested to know that the tactical

computer in the Hornet had detected the presence of,

and subsequently locked onto, your hostile radar

equipment and automatically sent a jamming signal

back to it, which is why it shut down.

Furthermore, an Air-to-Ground missile aboard the

fully armed aircraft had also automatically locked

on to your equipment’s location. 

Fortunately, the Marine Pilot flying the Hornet

recognized the situation for what it was, quickly

responded to the missile system alert status and was

able to override the automated defense system before

the missile was launched to destroy the hostile radar

position on the side of Hwy 77 So. of Kingsville …

The pilot suggests you cover your mouths when

cussing at them, since the video systems on these jets

are very high tech.

Sergeant Johnson, the officer holding the radar gun,

should get his dentist to check his left rear molar. It

appears the filling is loose.. Also, the snap is broken

on his holster.’
