dohhhh: This also happened months ago here a quote from another news source, of course SL wont print anything that might not be PC.
"In May 2013, seven Muslims from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Singapore were arrested in the middle of the night at the Quabbin Reservoir which supplies drinking water to the city of Boston as well as dozens of other Massachusetts communities.
The group of two women and five men told the state trooper who discovered them, that they were all chemical engineers and simply wanted to check out the facility.
Three locks had been cut to gain access to the reservoir.
Despite the fact that this incident occurred only a month after the Boston Marathon bombing, and the serious threat that could have been posed to a drinking water facility, no charges were ever filed against the group of trespassers
www.metro.us... The five men and two woman told troopers they were recent college graduates who wanted to see the reservoir for “education and career interests.”
The suspects are believed to be from Pakistan, Singapore, and Saudi Arabia, and were living in Massachusetts and New York City.
“Further investigation is being undertaken because of the late hour when they were observed, their curious explanation for why they wanted to see the reservoir, and the fact that they were in an area marked no trespassing,” state police said.
Interestingly, however, the police never released the arrest records or names of the trespassers–which would normally be no big deal. Every arrest is public–including mine. Why not some confused water-treatment students from the Middle East?
Which brings us to today’s news:
The seven individuals apprehended for trespassing at the Quabbin Water Reserve in Belchertown, Massachusetts, just after midnight May 14, 2013 are part of an “on-going criminal matter,” according to the Massachusetts State Police.
In response to a Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) request for names, addresses, court dates, and charges filed against the seven individuals, the Office of Chief Legal Council for the Massachusetts State Police cited several state statutes exempting the release of information requested.
“Please be advised G.L. c. 4, XXSSXX 7 cl. 26(a) exempts from public disclosure any records that are “specifically or by necessary implication exempted from disclosure by statute.” In this instance, your request falls within this exemption since releasing the requested information would violate… the Criminal Offender Record Information (“CORI”) statute.”

TVA: Suspect shoots at security officer at Watts Bar Nuclear Plant, officer shoots back
An unidentified suspect fired multiple rounds at a security officer on patrol at the Watts Bar Nuclear Plant early Sunday morning, and at least one round hit the security officer’s vehicle, an official said.
The Tennessee Valley Authority nuclear security officer fired back, also shooting multiple rounds.
The suspect appeared to have initially been on the ground but may have fled in a boat, TVA spokesman Jim Hopson said.
The shots were fired just after 2 a.m. this morning on the east side of the 1,700-acre plant, near the Tennessee River, toward the plant’s southern boundary, TVA said. The officer was several hundred yards outside the protected area where the reactor and power equipment are located...
“There was no threat to public safety during the incident and no threat to the security of the plant due to the location outside of the plant perimeter,” TVA said in a Sunday morning statement. “An investigation is under way.”

For the most part I think that paranoia of possible terrorism is being used to scare people into accepting all of the limitations on freedom, privacy, and rights we've seen since 9/11. And I think that's a far more dangerous risk than [almost] any terrorist. But then when bizarre incidents like the guy in the water pipe, the trespassers at the Boston area reservoir, and the shooter at the Tennessee nuclear power plant are treated like, "Move along, nothing to see here," that really makes me me wonder what is going on.
I would guess there are probably many more strange incidents going on around critical infrastructure than we hear about, too.edit on 23-1-2014 by ikonoklast because: Corrected a typo.

I called the municipal court to see if Asef Mohammad (Mohammed sp?) was going to be handled by them and the gal told me they weren't handling it but it has been transferred to the Monmouth County Supreme Court.
The 27-year-old Manalapan man who was found stuck in a 20-inch pipe at a United Water facility in January has been indicted for criminal trespass.
On Tuesday [April 15, 2014], a Monmouth County Grand Jury indicted Asaf Mohammad, 27, of Emily Road in Manalapan, for fourth-degree criminal trespass stemming from an incident when he allegedly entered a United Water Matchponix treatment facility without authorization.
