Ok. So this is more of a personal story and I don't expect people to think about it with a whole lot of merit if anyone even looks at or reads it at
all, but I figure I should put it out there so if certain events do play out this may be referred to.
(Hopefully this is the right place for this thread, maybe NWO or probably SkunkWorks so sorry in advance mods if this is the wrong place.)
Anyways, My father works at the County Clerk's office (His 25th anniversary of working at the county was this year) . With the courts being in the
same building as his office, and the Sheriff's Department basically next door, he has grown some pretty good friendships with many of the staff at
the Sheriff's Department. I have met and had dealings with a few of them myself as I have joined their Pipe Band. As some of you may know, there is
another Nation-Wide Tea Party scheduled for the fourth of July this Weekend.
My dad got talking to the Captain one day and they pretty much share in their political aligning. Anyways, My dad asked him if he planned on
attending the Fourth of July Tea Party. In response, the Captain said "No, I cannot afford to have my picture put on a terrorist watch list". My dad
says, "What do you mean?" "You do know that there were agents from the FBI and Homeland security at the last Tea Party taking pictures of everyone
participating right?" Says the Captain.
My dad relayed this story to me and I felt inclined to post it up on here. Kinda short I know but in conjunction with the homeland security reports
defining potential domestic terrorists, and all the demonization of the Tea Parties, I think this is a little scary (for lack of a better word).
Coming from a Captain at the Sheriff's department, this seems pretty credible. My goal is to take my camera (as a somewhat aspiring photographer) to
the Upcoming Tea Party and try to see if I can't get any pictures of my own of anyone sneaking around taking close-ups of the participants. (aka
Homeland Security or FBI agents armed with Cameras). I plan on updating the thread with such pictures if I acquire them.
Yeah I had some serious regret about that. Removed the names.
