Homeland Security urges paranoid busibodies to guard public toilets in OhioSubmitted by Resistance_2009 on Fri, 11/16/2012 - 20:17
At an otherwise uneventful public rest-area commode in Ohio, the Federal Department of Homeland Security has posted flyers urging the public to be vigilant and on the guard for suspicous behavior.
"If You See Something SUSPICIOUS, Say Something!", the flyer warns, emphasizing the word SUSPICIOUS in all caps. "Always be alert and aware of your surroundings: Abandoned Bags; Tampering with Security Equipment; Surveillance." The flyer then shows photos of abandoned bags, someone tampering with security cameras, and someone else using a camera to take a photo.
An absurd example of unnecessary government largess in 2012. the flyer concludes "Call Local Law Enforcement or Ohio Homeland Security at 1-877-OHS-Intel. SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING TIP LINE www.homelandsecurity.ohio.gov."
