    Are You Making the FBI Suspicious? See The Fliers That Reveal What They’re Looking For
    Do you pay for your coffee each day with cash? Express an interest in remote-controlled airplanes? According to fliers created by the FBI and Bureau of Justice Assistance for distribution to a variety of businesses, this could be considered indications of terrorist tendencies, the Huffington Post reports.

    FBI and Bureau of Justice Assistance Fliers List Potentially Terrorist Activity | TheBlaze.com

    The 25 fliers part of the campaign “Communities Against Terrorism” are targeted toward “threat areas,” which include airport service providers, beauty/drug suppliers, construction sites, hobby shops, Internet cafes, martial arts, rental cars and tattoo parlors, among others. Each target area comes with a downloadable flier profiling activity employees could look for to detect potential terrorists. See all the fliers here.

    It is unclear when exactly these fliers were produced, but a grant number that funded the fliers, as printed at the bottom of each template, appears to have been issued in 2007.

    Here are just a few samplings of suspicious activity labeled as warning signs within some of the fliers:

    •Demonstrating unusual interest in remote-controlled aircraft.
    •Exhibiting unusual interest or specific interest in rocket motors or igniters.
    •Significantly altered appearance (shaving beard, hair color, style of dress).
    •Make repeated returns with multiple individuals requesting identical tattoos.
    •Inquire about unusual methods of tattooing or placement of tattoos which could allow the concealment of extremist symbols.
    •Always pay cash or use credit card(s) in different name(s).
    •Evidence of a residential based internet provider (signs on to Comcast, AOL, etc.).
    •Gather information about vulnerable infrastructure or obtain photos, maps or diagrams of transportation, sporting venues, or populated locations.
    •Designing a paintball field to mimic security checkpoints (such as schools, theaters, airports, malls) .
    The fliers also include more of the warning signs that you might expect, such as voicing anti-American or extremist sentiments, trying to “piggy back” into secure areas and unwillingness to provide complete identification in necessary situations. Some of the signs on the lists are suspicious but interestingly many are also completely normal actions taken with innocent intent by innocent people (like paying for a coffee with cash).


    For this reason, each flier also notes that “It is important to remember that just because someone’s speech, actions, beliefs, appearance, or way of life is different; it does not mean that he or she is suspicious.”

    The fliers began emerging earlier this month on the Internet, although they were not released publicly by the departments, according to Public Intelligence, which is hosting downloadable versions of the fliers on its site.

    Communities Against Terrorism was funded by the BJA through its SLATT program (State and Local Anti-Terrorism Training (SLATT) Program) “to provide law enforcement agencies with a tool to engage members of the local community in the fight against terrorism.” It says that to help law enforcement educate their communities about the program, fliers “containing potential indicators” were created for distribution.

    It is unclear when exactly the fliers were released to the public, but the bottom of each flier has a 2007 grant number that was used to support the project

    I would say that if my neighbor shaved his head and had set up a paintball field to mimic a security checkpoint and was practicing flying a remote-controlled plane around it I would probably be a bit concerned.

    First it was guns,then buying with cash,now the fact that every year I shave off the beard?

    Again good luck getting a tattoo artist to give info.

    I need to take a spanish class for my time at GetMo

    Now why would terrorists need to take more pictures of any venues? There are so many HD pictures online of every sporting event and news photos of traffic conditions around all the infrastructure ,a little time online or even google will get you all you need.

    Terrorist have proven that a truck parked in front of a building can do a lot of damage.What else is there to study?
