Someone just sent us this in the comments section. If it’s official then it’s absolutely appalling. And it’s also clearly nutcase in length.
Who’s running the show over there? The same crowd that let Tom Angel skate by on his bigoted anti-Muslim email screeds? Which we all damn well know went to some of his employee buddies downtown there as well, shielded as they were by Albano and Company.
Even worse, there are no threats to warrant such paranoia being exhibited here. It’s just fear and hatred. Designed of course to be pro-Trumpery in timing.
You think this is OK, Will? You should call for an investigation on this, especially the timing.
Community: Burbank Police Reminds You to Report Suspicious Activity
*This is a public service announcement. It is not in reference to any current or specific threat, nor is there any current threat. It is for informational purposes only.
Have you ever wondered who to call, or what to do when you see something that just does not seem right, or makes you feel uncomfortable? This public service message contains tips on what to look for, what to do, and how to report suspicious activity.
WHY REPORT SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES?
With law enforcement and the community working together, we can help prevent terrorist activity in our neighborhoods. By now you’ve probably heard the saying, “If you see something, say something.”
It is your awareness reported to police that can help predict and prevent attacks before they happen. Since 9/11, we can and must work together to prevent future attacks. It is always better to report behaviors and activities that do not seem right. Remember, it is all about behaviors and activities, not individuals.
WHAT ACTIVITIES SHOULD I REPORT?
Here are a few examples:
– People drawing or measuring important buildings.
– Strangers asking questions about security or building security procedures.
– Briefcase, suitcase, backpack, or package left behind and unattended.
– Cars or trucks left in “No Parking” zones in front of important or high-profile buildings.
– Intruders in secure areas where they are not supposed to be.
– A person wearing clothes that are too big and too hit for weather.
– Chemical smell or fumes that worry you.
– Questions about sensitive information such as building blueprints, security plans, or VIP travel schedules without a right or need to know.
– Purchasing supplies or equipment that can be used to make explosive devices or weapons, without having proper credentials.
Possible Scenarios –
“There’s a chemical smell coming from my neighbor’s apartment.”
“I! saw someone taking measurements. I don’t want to get them in trouble. What should I do? The activity may be repeated at a number of locations, and you may be reporting one piece of the puzzle.
Maybe someone just forgot their backpack on the bus?
– Do not check it yourself; it may be a test.
Important Places to Watch:
– Government buildings
– Mass-gathering locations – parades, fairs, etc.
– Religious facilities
– Amusement parks
– Sports and entertainment venues
– Shopping malls
– High-rise buildings
– Public Transportation
To report suspicious activity, contact your local law enforcement agency and describe specifically what you observed, including:
WHO or WHAT you saw;
WHEN you saw it;
WHERE it occurred;
WHY it’s suspicious
If there is an emergency, call 9-1-1
Trust Your Instincts:
If it doesn’t look right, report it.
If it doesn’t smell right, report it.
If it doesn’t sound right, report.
We ALL play a role in keeping our community safe.

Ginning people up against each other is not a “public service.” It’s authoritarianism.
It’s also un-American.
Remember, it is all about behaviors and activities, not individuals.
Bullshit. It’s about watching people. And just certain ones.
