Hmm. I was shopping for backpacks yesterday for a trip I'm about to take. Guess I better make sure no one in my house shops for a pressure cooker.


It's a sad day when you can't even shop from your house without a visit from the government. Sad, indeed.

Sorry, but your wrong.
They actually do make these house calls. Around here its the State Patrol that does it in conjunction with DHS.

I know 3 people in the Tri-Cities area here that have had visits. And not a single one of them was searching for nefarious purposes. Mostly for education and schooling reasons.

It has been true in my experience that the people truly searching and planning for terrorists style attacks are not the ones being visited. Like mentioned before, those are the people that justify their job, why would you get rid of them.



I believe its because, they already know that if someone like one of us is going to take the steps to search how to bring down the govt, then we are either doing it knowing full well the consequences, and cannot be scared away, or we are just messing with them in one way or another.

The sheep on the other hand, hell, they need a good scarin every now and then. Dogs gotta bark to herd em back to the flock.

I think someone should set up teams managing specific search terms so that they become so inundated by «scary» «terrorist» web searches they wont be able to utilize their illegal data.

just putting that out there

That's a good memory, kind of scary how much freedom we have lost since then.

Which prompts the question: How'd the government know what they were Googling?


This prompts a question?

The fact that this "prompts a question" for someone is more shocking than the actual event. Seriously....

The system works?!

Well at least its nice to see some action from ALL THESE COUNTER MEASURES.

Restrictions at every corner for 10 years and finally some simple checks work - outrageous as it may be.

Here's a tip: Stop doing stuff on the internet and you'll have more privacy.

It doesn't matter what really happened, or if it even really happened, sadly. The conditioning was accomplished. If they can make even one more person afraid with each of these news articles - whether fabricated, misreported, or the absolute truth - then they've accomplished what they set out to accomplish.


The confusion now about which dept. actually was behind the door knocking/questioning of those in the home is important. The more people are confused-won't know who to trust-and think that they can trust no one. That's the way it works best.

I agree with what you said earlier. It only takes one story to get out to accomplish their goal/propaganda.

One question though. Why the 3 month lapse?


Thanks for the update!! Unfortunately now the original story is out there & that is the one most people will ever be exposed to or care to read.

The time lapse question is a good one. I'm sure journalist are trying to contact his old company, maybe they'll release a statement also.

Hell, it's not something I know how to query as a webmaster myself...but then, Google is no mere home webmaster learning as needed. Anyone recall the BIG controversy many years ago about Intel serial numbering their CPU chips as the ultimate online ID of the physical equipment and not just login?


Question for you, as I'm not all that savvy with the tech., Could it be that whenever we get a new PC or other gidgit, that we enter our info and serial # ? Is it a possibility that this is a way of knowing just what door to knock on? Be gentle with me please--I lack the knowledge.

Suffolk County Criminal Intelligence Detectives received a tip from a Bay Shore based computer company regarding suspicious computer searches conducted by a recently released employee. The former employee’s computer searches took place on this employee’s workplace computer. On that computer, the employee searched the terms “pressure cooker bombs” and “backpacks.”

After interviewing the company representatives, Suffolk County Police Detectives visited the subject’s home to ask about the suspicious internet searches. The incident was investigated by Suffolk County Police Department’s Criminal Intelligence Detectives and was determined to be non-criminal in nature.

Any further inquiries regarding this matter should be directed to the Suffolk County Police Department


One question though. Why the 3 month lapse?


Another piece of the puzzle. Should be stated again. That is all.

MOTF!

Has no one seriously bothered to post the clarification of this story that was provided yesterday afternoon? An employer found the searches on their workplace computer and made a phone call. There was no federal snooping. This is old news and a distorted story. Just sayin...

The update has been posted 3 times on the last 2 pages, TWICE on this page alone.

Some just are not bothering to read the thread. I guess it's just too easy for some to blanket blame the government then realize the original story was not what it was billed as. Even the woman that wrote the original blog post is having a hard time excepting it was not some blanket surveillance program.

Has no one seriously bothered to read the clarification of this story that was provided yesterday afternoon that has been posted multiple times on the past few pages? Maybe before you get all outraged you should so the smallest amount of reading instead of looking for stars. Just sayin...
