Wal-Mart partners with Homeland Security to heighten “hometown security”


 

Wal-Mart is teaming up with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to send a message to people across America: “If you see something suspicious in the parking lot or in the store, say something immediately,” says Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano in a video promoting the partnership. At least 200 Wal-Mart stores are rolling out security announcements—videos of Napolitano imploring citizens to report suspicious activity—this week. TV screens featuring Napolitano will be stationed at select checkout lanes. By the end of the month, some 588 stores in 27 states will be participating in the program.

  1. Good Lord. Are we really in so much danger that we have to look at Napolitano as we buy socks at Walmart?

  2. Seeing Napolitano in Wal-Mart is something suspicious.

  3. I have vague memories of media stories in the late 50's early 60's that talked about how the "evil communist states" encouraged their citizens to report the suspicious behaviour of their neighbours to the authorities … the hubris is almost depressing.

  4. Is there a bigger terrorist than Walmart?

  5. So… they're worried about terrorists wanting to blow up Wal-marts?

    I thought terrorists wanted to hurt the US?

  6. The New World Order is getting closer and closer.

  7. More people die of bee stings than terrorists.

    • Thankyou, I feel much more secure that I am now aware of this fact…….

  8. George Orwell was right…

  9. Oh yes, because we're all aware of those terrorists lurking in the aisles and checkout counters of our precious bog-box stores.
