Y-12 protesters arraigned for federal trespassing; more charges could follow » Knoxville News Sentinel

KNOXVILLE — Three peace activists, including Sister Megan Rice, an 82-year-old nun, were arraigned this morning on federal trespassing charges in connection with Saturday’s pre-dawn break-in at the Y-12 nuclear weapons plant, and U.S. Attorney Bill Killian indicated that other charges could be added later. Emphasis mine…

Please explain to me how an 82 year old nun can break into a nuclear weapons plant!

Skip further down in the article and you’ll find this little nugget which should help you sleep better at night:

The protesters are reported to have cut through three or four fences in order to gain access to high-security areas of the nuclear weapons plant. Once there, they allegedly spray-painted messages and poured human blood on a Y-12 building known as the Highly Enriched Uranium Materials Facility. The facility contains the nation’s primary supply of bomb-grade uranium.

Maybe its me, but I would have expected a security team of any sort would have found the trespassers before they cut through “three or four fences” and spread human blood (really, human blood?) on parts of this (highly sensitive) facility.

Here is a link to the full site, go read for yourself, and then go pray for all of us!
