Big-City Cops: Terror Neighborhood Watch Good Idea

Story here.

Meaning... the police want you to keep your eyes open and "snitch" on your neighbors... if they behave suspiciously, ie. like terrorists.

Now, isn't this a way better idea than snitching on fellow patriotic Americans who are simply criticizing the Obamacare nonsense?

Using brochures, public service announcements and meetings with community groups, iWATCH is designed to deliver concrete advice on how the public can follow the oft-repeated post-9/11 recommendation: "If you see something, say something." Program materials list nine types of suspicious behavior that should prompt people to call police and 12 kinds of places to look for it.

Among the indicators:

_If you smell chemicals or other fumes.

_If you see someone wearing clothes that are too big and too heavy for the season.

_If you see strangers asking about building security.

_If you see someone purchasing supplies or equipment that could be used to make bombs.

The important places to watch include: government buildings, mass gatherings, schools and public transportation.

Common sense stuff.

Also, it doesn't matter what the people look like. Doesn't matter what their skin color is, or whether they look Islamic or not. None of that matters anymore, 'cause the enemy has recruited non-suspicious-looking (ie. "white" & boring) folks to be brainwashed jihadists to carry out foreign-originated orders to commit mass murder and destruction. Don't worry about whether it's a mistake or not, or about being mistaken about the Arabic-looking dude doing really suspicious stuff that turns out to be nothing.

Better safe than sorry.

The Obamacrat Regime endorses this stuff, by the way... we saw them encourage Americans to snitch on their fellow Americans, remember?

Of course, I've been encouraging readers for years already to keep their eyes open for suspicious behavior, just to be safe.

Reporting is made easier via a toll-free number and a website where citizens can report their observations for possible follow-up investigation/surveillance or just noting for future reference by authorities.

Of course, the ACLU doesn't like it. So what? Screw them- they're just a bunch of asshole far-left lawyers who don't like America anyway.
