    Default Pakistani arrested for filming buildings

    Pakistani arrested for videotaping buildings; unclear if he's terror suspect

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. A Pakistani man who was taken into custody for filming skyscrapers in Charlotte, North Carolina faces a detention hearing on Friday. But it's still not clear if authorities consider him a terror suspect.

    Kamran Akhtar is charged with violating federal immigration and naturalization laws and making a false statement. Authorities say he was scheduled for deportation seven years ago.

    One official says Akhtar is a possible suspect in other crimes, but refused to elaborate.

    He was arrested July 20th after a police officer spotted him making a videotape of the 60-story Bank of America headquarters and another downtown skyscraper.

    Videotapes found in his possession included footage of buildings and transit systems in Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, New Orleans and Austin, Texas.

    Of course he wasn't a terrorist!

    Terrorists do no exist. They are a figment of the imagination created by George Bush and all the republicans to scare people into voting for them! That whole 9/11 thing...never happened either!

    side note: If anyone took this post serious, step away from the computer and take a couple shots of tequila with some Guinness as a chaser

    Just give him the sure fire test.

    Stick a stick of dynamite up his butt and if he screams he is a terroist. Oh heck just lit the fuse anyway and we will save keeping him is jail and supporting his family!!

    I don't know if it's me or if the media sympathizes with these people. A lot of liberals would want you to think this person is an innocent victim of Bush's Patriot Act. Notice the headline "Pakistani arrested for videotaping building." That is a LIE. He was arrested for violating federal immigration laws and lying to police.

    Terrorist May Use Ambulances As A Camouflage For A Bomb


    WAR ON TERRORISM ó In an exclusive ABC News' Good Morning America report we are learning of chilling new tactics for terrorist. They are using ambulances for bomb attacks. Several recent mysterious events have officials concerned.

    New Jersey Counter Terrorism Director Sidney Caspersen says, "We issued an Infrastructure Advisory Bulletin indicating that we had information from a variety of incidences that occurred in New Jersey, three that involved ambulances."

    In one case a man who said he was from Pakistan who attended an open house at an ambulance squad in suburban New Jersey raised questions. The bulletin said he appeared very nervous and was only interested in the speed of the vehicles and the use of lights and sirens.

    The second case in the document described a man in a nearby location taking notes in the parking lot of an ambulance company.

    The third incident involved three individuals who approached an ambulance company wanting to join in. They were all of Middle Eastern decent and they wanted to know how soon they could be certified as ambulance drivers and if they paid extra money, if it could happen sooner.

    And, as recently as this weekend, ABC News has learned that a person approached ambulance workers in New York City asking how someone would go about buying an ambulance, raising further suspicions.

    In America we are taught to give ambulances the utmost respect and to get out of their way, pretty much letting them go wherever they want. And, that is what makes them such an attractive delivery device for terrorists, but now ambulance companies are making changes.

    Matthew Harrison of Transcare, an ambulance company says, "We are on the lookout for anyone who shows an unusual interest in how to acquire an ambulance or where to get an ambulance. Questions that would indicate they have an interest beyond simply the natural curiosity about an ambulance."

    Are we still falsely profiling?

    Are we still falsely profiling?
    Sometimes profiling works in the opposite manner. It is easy to get tunnel vision. For example...

    At that same "open house", how many other people do you suppose were asking questions about that bus? Could one of them been a member of ALF/ELF or the NARL? These groups have extensive histories of bombing targets also. If Timothy McVeigh had come to your firehouse and was asking questions, would you have called the PD? Or, as a veteran would you have invited him for a cup of coffee? He could just as easily used a bus as he did a Ryder Truck.

    When I worked EMS in New beunswick or Jersey City, I never would have left the bus idling unattended outside the ED. But how many of you in God's Country think nothing of it? Many of these anarchists are kids that live next door to some of you who would never raise a suspicion.

    You need to secure your facilities because it is the right thing to do, ot because of any particular racial/ethnic group.
