Days after the alien crash at Roswell, citizens were threatened
by military personnel to "keep their mouths shut."
Roswell Cover Up
Roswell Alien Crash
Roswell Citizens Threatened
Over the next several months following the crash,
military personnel and civilians, including women and children, were threatened
with death by the U.S.
military if they spoke of what they saw at Roswell. Many, many civilians have sworn
affidavits stating that U.S.
military officers threatened them overtly, boldly, and face to face.
This is compelling. These threats come a scant two years
after the U.S.
defeated Hitler in World War II. Even when fighting against Hitler, private
citizens and children were not threatened with death if they spoke to a fellow
countryman, but here in Roswell,
they were! All for a weather balloon? Think again!
While people are certainly capable of making up weird
stories, what reason would a mother have for falsely stating that her children were
threatened with murder by soldiers from her own country? There were many women
who have made such statements about the incident at Roswell.
Even the most hardened police officers will tell you that
suspects will say anything and witnesses may be unclear on what they saw, but
people who are not involved in criminal activity never make up threats. It just
doesn' t happen. Actual statements about these threats appear below.
Even law enforcement
officers were told that their
families would be in jeopardy if they talked about the Roswell
incident. Military officers made it
clear they were willing to murder children. For a weather balloon?

threatened us if we said anything about it. They were going to take

"A few days later, several military
personnel visited the
house. I was questioned about the piece of metal I had seen. I was told
I ever talked about it, I could be taken out into the desert never to

a former POW camp."

Frankie Rowe was still
a child when she was threatened.
"We'll know if you talk; we’ll know who
you talk to and
all you will simply disappear.
So forget everything you saw and
hightail it out of here
before someone else sees you and wants to make sure you stay silent."

Danzer had just seen a
still-alive but dying alien on a
stretcher at the base hospital.
"They said if I didn't forget what my
father had told me,
that me and the rest of my family would simply disappear in the desert."

Neighbor Against Neighbor
year on the anniversary of the events that occurred in Roswell, the
citizens put on a play. "Roswell', the play tells the sory of how the
alien crash and subsequent military action against citizens caused so much fear, that the town divided and pitted
families against one another. Families that had been close for
generations broke bonds that were never repaired. This had a far more
devastating affect on the town of Roswell than the crash itself. The
play is very moving even 6o years after the event. The year I went in
1998, I was seated as a guest of honor for telling their story
in my book. Coca Cola sponsored the week-long run and there was talk of
the production going nationwide. However, several sources told me that
the subject was too touchy to be sponsored on a large-scale basis by
a firm the size and stature of Coca Cola. Whether this is true or not,
I don't know, but the production has never gone beyond Roswell.
