They do love that dirty water.
 
2013-06-14 11:18:55 AM  
...the alleged trespassers are not facing any criminal charges at this time

...there was no evidence that the people who were stopped at the reservoir near the middle entrance were engaged in terrorism or any crime beyond the trespassing charge.


EXECUTE THEM
 
2013-06-14 11:20:41 AM  
The FBI and state police later determined that the group was not connected with any terrorist activity, nor was there ever a threat to the water supply.

Subby, did you eat paint chips for breakfast?

Lousy skinny dipping Pakistani terrorists...
 
2013-06-14 11:27:37 AM  
They may well have been taking pictures of the reservoir.  Isn't that grounds for a terrorism charge?  What's this country coming to when we can't arbitrarily throw suspicious people into a lockup somewhere and throw away the key?

Recent chemical engineering graduates for whom the visit was within their career interests. A career of EVIL VILLAINY, most likely!

At 12:30 am they'd need a hell of a flash.   They weren't arrested, but it IS odd to visit a reservoir in the middle of the night, even if your academic interests happen to line up with it. Personally, I'd feel better about the whole thing if at least one of them was hammered.  It would explain the logic.

tried to poison?   they didn't have any chemicals with them, but by virtue of their college majors and ethnicity they must have been up to no good

Glad you're on the case, because the state police and FBI cops who interrogated them would never think of that.

Destroying precious water that might be needed for Fracking. Not a law, but should be. Do your drinking on your own time.

I once banged a girl next to the reservoir after midnight, so I'm getting a kick....

They could all be Muslim, they could all be Jewish, they could all be Druids, but visiting a reservoir in the middle of the night makes a lot more sense if someone is hammered.

I'm willing to get that's a detail left out.

A bunch of college students, mainly from cultures that aren't allowed to drink, out at a lake at midnight?  Ten bucks says they had a few cases of beer with them.
 
2013-06-14 11:43:50 AM  
I live near a reservoir, and I sometimes take the dog for a walk up there in the middle of the night when I can't sleep.

Thankfully, I'm white, and any cops who have bothered to stop and question me can immediately see the inherent trust expected with my being a white man, and I've always been allowed to continue on my way without any hassle whatsoever.  A shade or two darker, and I'm sure I'd have been shot.

There's enough nefarious shiat in the world without trying to make every single thing someone does look skulky.  Most normal college students do stupid things like this at least once, without any evil intent beyond the mild thrill of being somewhere they shouldn't.  My friends and I snuck into the old steam tunnels under the university on more than one occasion, just to see what was down there.  We were very lucky not to get caught.

/We did poison all of the steam, but those motherfarkers had it coming.

Couldn't they have just said they were gonna have a little gangbang out by the lake? Why all the BS about it being for college. You do that during the F'n day.

Maybe they were smuggling an Ebola-laden nuclear device into the reservoir?

We should imagine more horrific things and pretend that they're actually real things to worry about.  Like, maybe they both have Super Gay Terror AIDS, and they were going to take a swim in the reservoir to infect the entire Eastern Seaboard with their Super Gay Terror AIDS.

Or, maybe they were trying to signal the aliens from Planet Granthor who will come down and set all of earth's kittens and puppies on fire.

After all, if we can imagine it, it must be possible, right?

Guilty until proven innocent, you prejudiced motherfarkers.

No you farking tard - it wouldn't make any sense if six white kids were at the reservoir at 12:30 am, either - UNLESS THEY WERE HAMMERED.

A reservoir isn't the kind of place anyone goes to visit in the middle of the night.  It's like saying "let's go to the used car lot" at 12:30 in the morning.

Road Rash: Hmm ... has nobody ever heard of the word reconnaissance?


Yeah, I heard of it. This wasn't that. There was a thread on this on the JREF forums back in May. It was determined that a tanker truck full of botullina toxin (even if you could get your hands on one) wouldn't be enough to poison a 412 billion gallon reservoir. Secretly poisoning something that large would be a logistic impossibility. Assuming you could poison it with something strong enough that standard water treatment processes couldn't filter it out, workers would notice the death of every fish and duck in the reservoir long before it reached the general population. Any chemical engineering student would figure that out a long time before such a plan reached the reconaissance phase.

The same group was spotted at Los Alamos hopping the fence at 2AM. They were just writing a paper on nuclear fission. Don't assume anything nefarious, racist.

2013-06-14 12:08:36 PM  
I don't think these kids were terrorists. But nothing they did looks good. Just say you were there to fark, and everyone would be a little more relaxed. No need to bring chem eng into it. Not that you wouldn't get hassled for being brown, but the police would understand more.

Actually poisoning may be logistic impossibility. But damaging the flow of water and f'ing up the state for a good chunk of time is a possibility.

I just explained that I, at times, do in fact visit the reservoir in the middle of the night...  not hammered... And, you don't seem to have a problem with it.  So...  what was your point again?

Strangely enough, I've also been dragged to a used car lot in the middle of the night as well (I know.  Weird life, huh?).  But, that's a story for another day.
 
2013-06-14 12:10:04 PM  
Anyone want to do the math on how many tons of chemicals it would take to effectively poison 412 billion gallons? Wouldn't it be far more effective to connect to a fire hydrant and force your poison upstream? I don't think hydrants have back-flow prevention... at least I've heard stories of some idiot causing an explosion in a nearby building by forcing propane into the system via a hydrant?
