A person e-mailed Dave Schrader of Darkness Radio about something bizarre they saw several years ago while working at an out-of-the-way gas station in rural Louisiana.
“It was about 3 years ago, in November 2012, when I was working at a small gas station in Northeast Louisiana. We were the only small shop and 24-hour service station near Bastrop, just off the highway. I worked the night-shift. I loved it. The sharing of stories with the travelling customers, that is when the rare customer showed up.
It must have been around 2 AM. I was cleaning the floors and locking the beer coolers when suddenly the lights went out. I pulled out my cell and used it as a guiding light until I made it back to our counter where I kicked on the gas generator. It lit the parking lot, the bath and the hall leading to the register. When I looked outside, I could just make out the movement of the trees across the street, but, otherwise, it was pitch black. I turned on the radio and started listening to a local station with its night owl DJ, commenting on the heavy winds and cracking jokes between songs.
Suddenly, I saw some figures in the dark. I could just make them out. They seemed to be a group of kids on bikes. There were three of them. Two of them dropped their bikes and made their way to the door where they just stood there staring at me. I just stared back for a moment, waiting for them to come in. They never did. I moved around the counter and opened the door. ‘What’s up guys? Out kinda late aren’t you?’ I asked them, expecting them to come in. ‘Can we use your phone?’ one asked, their heads tilted kinda low. I felt a little worried as I pulled my cell from my pocket and offered it to her. ‘Sure.’ She looked at me and then I saw her eyes. They were solid black, almost like ink-filled orbs! ‘No, I need the real one!’ she said, her face twisted into an angry snarl. I pulled the door closed and flipped the locks. ‘No! No ma’am, you go home and get your mom’s phone.’ They stared at me through the door for a minute longer before turning away and biking off.
The next day I had my boss check the cameras to get the pictures of the creepy kids but the cameras had been off the whole time. Now the cameras run off the generator instead of the hall lights. I never saw the kids again.”

Featured in this edition:
There is a distinct group of human-like entities that are part of ufology lore and, for the most part, associated with people who experience UFO and otherworldly close encounters. These are the ‘Men in Black’ or MIB. These entities usually show up, unannounced, at an experiencer’s home, seeking information about an incident.
The presence of these MIB became widely known during reported UFO activity (and the Mothman encounters) in the Point Pleasant, West Virginia area in the late 1960s. The journalist and ufologist John A. Keel began writing about the MIB after they made themselves known to the residents. The descriptions of these MIB were somewhat consistent; pale or olive-colored skin, monotone voice, no emotion or expression, dressed in a black suit and fedora, and driving a large black sedan. There were usually two MIB traveling together.
However, the most disconcerting aspect of their presence occurred after they conducted a brief interview. They would warn the witness, in no uncertain terms, not to discuss or report what they had observed. The message was clear. Keep your mouth shut.
Most experiencers and investigators don’t know what to make of the MIB. Are they quasi-government agents? How do they know who to contact? In most instances, they appear not long after an encounter and before a report is ever made. They truly are an enigma. But I believe that there is another explanation for their presence. Namely, that the MIB are an alien ‘clean-up’ crew who are used to cover up problematic sightings and encounters.
So, what do you think the Men in Black are? Just maintain an open mind, and formulate your theories to this phenomenon. I will present the reports in detail and attempt to answer your questions from the chat room.
