I drive past that sub station severall times a month. I'm not sure what side of the station they fired on. It's 8 lanes of freeway from where I go past it.

On the back side it's just open land. I'm thinking it was the back side.

If you google the incident you'll see a lot of news agencies are using that new buzzword, SNIPER. It's to stir up the sheeple and justify their wants.

They're very stupid. But the problem here is that the reporting is being spun to serve a particular agenda. You'd think maybe at least some of the dickwads would smell that and not take the bait.

This was in the news, wasn't this AFTER the Boston attack? I think what I read was this was investigated as a terrorist incident because evidence /video showed 2 people?

So do I and have been for my entire life. But there not much more land on the backside until you get to another road and I Believe some condos and houses. There's a small fishing lake very near there. Any time of day estimated ? I think it would have to be middle of the night. If they wanted in why not cut the chain link fence and do some real damage.
Ak47 type rounds means it was some retards with an SKS.

The article I saw also said that the analysis suggested a need to shield transformers from physical attack. I think this should not be discounted as you guys are.

A few more excerpts from the WSJ article (which is the only one I’ve read):

“The attack began just before 1 a.m. on April 16 last year, when someone slipped into an underground vault not far from a busy freeway and cut telephone cables. …

“A minute before a police car arrived, the shooters disappeared into the night. …

“At 12:58 a.m., AT&T fiber-optic telecommunications cables were cut—in a way that made them hard to repair—in an underground vault near the substation, not far from U.S. Highway 101 just outside south San Jose. It would have taken more than one person to lift the metal vault cover, said people who visited the site.



“At 1:31 a.m., a surveillance camera pointed along a chain-link fence around the substation recorded a streak of light that investigators from the Santa Clara County Sheriff's office think was a signal from a waved flashlight. It was followed by the muzzle flash of rifles and sparks from bullets hitting the fence.



“Five minutes later, another apparent flashlight signal, caught on film, marked the end of the attack. More than 100 shell casings of the sort ejected by AK-47s were later found at the site.



“Mr. Wellinghoff, then chairman of FERC, said that after he heard about the scope of the attack, he flew to California, bringing with him experts from the U.S. Navy's Dahlgren Surface Warfare Center in Virginia, which trains Navy SEALs. After walking the site with PG&E officials and FBI agents, Mr. Wellinghoff said, the military experts told him it looked like a professional job.

“In addition to fingerprint-free shell casings, they pointed out small piles of rocks, which they said could have been left by an advance scout to tell the attackers where to get the best shots.

“‘They said it was a targeting package just like they would put together for an attack,’ Mr. Wellinghoff said.”

If it was a "professional job", they would have picked up their casings.

At 0100, a minute before the police arrive? I’m sure the operators of one of our well-known secret organizations could have accomplished that, but ordinary mortals—?

It would actually be interesting to know whether the bullets recovered from the transformers were consistent with the cartridge cases found at the scene. That’s something I’ve wondered about since first reading the article.

It wasn’t, however, that until I read this thread that I realized we had so many experts who were capable of drawing so many confident conclusions from such sketchy information right here on this forum.
I AM impressed. Wink

I'm missing the significance/reasoning in this thought!

Which one? I count at least three more or less unrelated thoughts there.

It was a "well-orchestrated terrorist attack". I heard it on the news.
