Homeland Security 'messages' coming to Walmart, hotels, malls | Raw Story

Homeland Security 'messages' coming to Walmart, hotels, malls. Site is dead - here's cached version.

Shoppers at Walmart will soon have something other than glossy magazines and chewing gum to look at when in the checkout line: A "video message" from the Department of Homeland Security asking them to look out for "suspicious" activity and report it immediately.

It's part of a new Department of Homeland Security program that could see Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano's face on video screens in malls, retail outlets and hotels across the United States

Dear America. It's like you picked out the worst parts of the dystopian future novels and 1984-like visualizations of the future and said "hey, that's a great idea!"

Seriously, homeland security videos encouraging people to report "suspicious" activity? Didn't I see that in the beginning of Half Life 2?
