Tap water quality complaints are now an “act of terrorism” under Homeland Security rules, or so says government officials from Tennessee.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, lately people have been all sorts of things acts of terrorism.
Noam Chomsky even claimed Obama is running a terrorist organization.
Sherwin Smith, deputy director of TDEC’s Division of Water Resources, dropped the bomb that “unfounded” tap water quality complaints are an act of terrorism:
“We take water quality very seriously. Very, very seriously. But you need to make sure that when you make water quality complaints you have a basis, because federally, if there’s no water quality issues, that can be considered under Homeland Security an act of terrorism.”
What makes this warning so ominous is this response came after concerned parents filed complaints that their children were becoming ill drinking tap water in Maury County, Tennessee. One woman said the taper water quality was so bad she’d still drink it but “prayer before the first sip.”
The response shocked and outraged attendees of the meeting. One person complained, “I think it’s just to quash us complicating life for them.”
The government officials who organized the meeting, representative Butt, also thought it was inappropriate to equate tap water quality complaints to an act of terrorism:
“I think that we need to be very careful with how we use the words ‘terrorist’ and ‘terrorism.’ I thought it was out of context. That did not apply to anything that we were discussing at the meeting.”
What should citizens do about the government claiming quality complaints amount to tap water terrorism?
