GREAT idea! Let's get EVERYONE paranoid and suspicious of one another. Watch the sheeple go insane with paranoia. OH: Why on earth would they start a terror watch in a department store??? There has NEVER been a problem in a store... even theft is impossible with the scanning tags, which are now embedded into the merchandise. Yup, BIG BROTHER is watching YOU! I have an idea: why doesn't everyone MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS!? I'd say STOP SHOPPING AT WAL of cameras MART.
(CBS) A Department of Homeland Security campaign has moved from the subway to the suburbs.
The "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign - designed to get Americans to play a more active role in security - is coming to hundreds of Wal-Marts across the country.
"Homeland security starts with hometown security," said - Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. "This partnership will help millions of shoppers across the nation identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to law enforcement authorities."
The program was first used by the New York City's Metropolitan Transportation Authority and tries to get the general public to report indicators of terrorism and crime to authorities.
More than 230 Wal-Mart stores nationwide launched the "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign this week, with a total of 588 Wal-Mart stores in 27 states joining in the coming weeks. A short video message will play at some checkout locations with video monitors.
The campaign has already been implemented by the Mall of America in Minnesota, Amtrak, the American Hotel & Lodging Association and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.
