DHS and the Walmart

Drudge is reporting that DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano wants you to report on other people.

If George W. Bush had said this, the left would be all up in arms. But, since one of Obama's incompetents made the suggestion, it's okay with the left. But we on the right are getting our panties in a wad about it.

Should we?

Heck, I don't know. Because Big Sis launched the campaign at ... Walmart.
The "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign—originally implemented by New York City's Metropolitan Transportation Authority and funded, in part, by $13 million from DHS' Transit Security Grant Program—is a simple and effective program to engage the public and key frontline employees to identify and report indicators of terrorism, crime and other threats to the proper transportation and law enforcement authorities.

More than 230 Walmart stores nationwide launched the "If You See Something, Say Something" campaign today, with a total of 588 Walmart stores in 27 states joining in the coming weeks. A short video message, available here, will play at select checkout locations to remind shoppers to contact local law enforcement to report suspicious activity.
You see the problem I have with this, right?

Not that Big Sis wants us to report each other. It's that they're asking for suspicious activity at Walmart.

I wonder has she ever been to a Walmart? I was at one the other day, and saw Elvis:

Someone else saw him, too, but in California. On the same day, no less.

But, then, it is a Walmart. Where you can find people like this:

And this:

And this:

And this:

Okay, that's enough. It's more than enough. You can see more, if you like.

Anyway, what I'm wondering is, are we supposed to report suspicious people we see at Walmart? And, what's the criteria for "suspicious" at Walmart? Looking normal?

If I was looking for suspicious people to report, I wouldn't need to go to a Walmart to find some. There's this person. And this one.
