Man Detained for Singing a Clash Song
I was in New York yesterday, and I saw a sign at the entrance to the Midtown Tunnel that said: “See something? Say something.” The problem with a nation of amateur spies is that it results in these sorts of results. “I know he’s a terrorist because he’s dressing funny and he always has white wires hanging out of his pocket.” “They all talk in a funny language, and their cooking smells bad.”
Amateur spies perform amateur spying. If everybody does it, the false alarms will overwhelm the police.
