Idea: Barney Fife NetworkSubmitted by George Strait on Tue, 04/23/2013 - 15:41
Perhaps this already exists, but it occurred to me that checkpoints, lockdowns, and other police-state events can catch people by surprise, and that there's no need for this.
Anyhow, Twitter is probably the most convenient way to alert people locally of some kind of checkpoint, barricade, Post-Katrina mass confiscation, search and seizure, etc.
My suggestion would be to tweet Barney Fife abbreviated to BF+zip code, for instance BF90210 for Beverly Hills, BF35115 for Montevallo, AL.
Then people can search that hashtag, or follow tweets that use that hashtag for information. Retweets, and possibly central accounts named BarneyFife90210 could help this all along.
