While everyone’s attention is on the scandals rocking the Obama White House, I thought I would share this bit of news that you may have missed. I found this Canada Free Press story at Doug Ross@ Journal this morning. It starts out:
Just after Midnight Tuesday night, seven people – five men and two women – were caught trespassing at the Quabbin Reservoir. The Quabbin is one of America’s largest man made water supplies, and delivers most of Boston’s drinking water.
So, no big deal, right? It’s probably just some kids who decided to sneak in and have a few beers at the water’s edge.
Well, it turns out that they were all from either Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, or Singapore. They were all recent graduates in chemical engineering and they told authorities that their reason for being a the reservoir was due to “their education and career interests.” That sounds reasonable, don’t you think? I mean they probably wanted to beef up their resume’s to show that they were knowledgeable about how big city water reservoirs worked. And, its possible that their English vocabulary was limited. I’m sure they were asking themselves what ” No trespassing” means. Being foreigners, they were probably a bit timid about asking permission to visit the reservoir during the day time so they came at midnight when they wouldn’t bother anybody. Wasn’t that considerate of them?
Atlas Shrugs reporting on the same story tell us:
State Police say there were no warrants or advisories on any of the individuals and “there was no evidence that the seven were committing any crime beyond the trespassing.”
All seven were allowed to leave and will be summoned to court for trespassing. The FBI is investigating and routine checks of public water supplies have been increased following the incident.
Now don’t you folks in Boston get yourselves all worked up just because some Muslim paid a visit to your drinking water supply at midnight. After all, they weren’t Chechens. And, you can relax because the FBI is looking into this incident…. On second thought, you all might want to stock up on bottled water. Oh! And just in case the authorities decide to subject Boston to another lockdown, you may want to stock up on food, too.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
