New York Republican Peter King has introduced a bill that would protect the army of citizen spies Homeland Security hopes to recruit under Janet Napolitano’s “See Something, Say Something” snoop campaign from lawsuits brought by innocent people wrongly accused of being terrorists or extremists.
There is only 1 choice. C

And if you do not comply and appear to do so happily, you will be 'noticed'. Accusations will fly, neighbor will turn against neighbor, and all of us will be living in as dystopian a world as we could imagine.
The entire idea of this "See Something, Say Something" campaign is ludicrous at best... and the beginning of the end of goodwill between strangers at the worst.
So we have 3 options..
A) Comply and submit.
B) Comply and subtly resist where you can.
C) Resist outright and be labeled a terrorist or a threat.
Which will you choose?
Originally posted by AshleyDI'm going to play devil's advocate for a moment. I can definitely see the point of view of all the posts above (so nobody flame me because I do agree to an extent). But I still want to look at it another way.
When I was a flight attendant, we had to be SO SUPER CAREFUL when reporting suspicious activity because the accused could and have filed lawsuits. They could even sue their fellow passengers who came forward as witnesses. Remember the 'Flying Imams' incident?
I certainly wouldn't want innocent and sincere civilians to be vulnerable to lawsuits because they reported something suspicious.

(even something I feel was staged just for lawsuits like the Flying Imam incident) because they may be sued.
