Ultra Long Exposure Cam Blown By Bomb Squad- LGF Poll- Are We Over Reacting?
It so happens I have been near not just one but two “suspicious package” incidents downtown. One I posted at the time Jan 23rd I think, and again yesterday a big area (several square blocks) was disrupted. This story prompts my question. Might we need to adjust our response a bit?
In this particular incident I really think a phone number on the note about the nature of the device would have saved everyone a lot of trouble. And attempts to get some prank or illusion to go viral on YouTube makes false alarms pretty likely.
I’m thinking in broad terms here as well. Perhaps only some of the following strikes a chord with you. From the Patriot Acts unrequited sunset, to expansions of FISA, questionable searches, surveillance, the reduced civil rights zone that legally makes the border 100 miles wide. Then we have the typical reaction to even tiny drones with laptop quality cameras aboard. Or where the FAA looks at needed regulations for drones and comes to many profoundly erroneous conclusions.
But if any of the above or similar issues I left out give you genuine concern, please vote yes. If you feel we have this right or should become even more secure via more restrictions, police powers etc., please give us a no.
Local news station WSB-TV reports that the ‘tube shaped object” was duct taped to the side of the bridge overlooking the interstate. A worker who spotted the device said there was a note on it that said something like: “Slow motion video. Do not move until spring.”
