DHS is partnering with Walmart for the “see something, say something” campaign. This is objectionable for at least 3 reasons:
#1 The program is intentionally vague, no one for DHS or Walmart will or can define what is to be considered “suspicious behavior”.
#2 The vagueness of the program means that the effect of the program is to make people paranoid and fearful of one another.
#3 Individuals being paranoid and fearful of one another are keystones in the bridge leading to a police state like the one found in East Germany before the Berlin wall fell. Let us never allow there to be an American Stasi.
