Seriously retards, 1230am. Who the fark visits a place like that at those hours? It's not a bar, a club, or even a farking Walmart.

Don't be farktarded in a dim attempt to not profile.

Lsherm: A reservoir isn't the kind of place anyone goes to visit in the middle of the night


Um. Unless they were up to no good. Like swimming in the reservoir or drinking or having sex or smoking weed or...

any of the other things that college students have been doing at the Quabbin reservoir for the last hundred years...

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.

...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.

Lsherm: 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.


You know how I know you didn't grow up in the middle of no where?

All we had was the spillway.. and used car lots to cruise.

Lsherm: Vodka Zombie: 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.

You weren't responding to me so I missed that post.  Way to invent what you think my response would be.  It must be nice to be so self-centered.

And you had a dog with you.  So if I asked you why you were at the reservoir, and you said "walking my dog" - then that sounds plausible.   "Doing freelance homework" does not sound plausible.  "Drinking, having sex, and farking around" sounds plausible.


Why not?  I used to write college papers in the bar after close, so....  Do college kids keep strict hours of study these days?

Look, it's not your fault.  You've been conditioned to be afraid of every damn thing that might appear even remotely out of place.  The fact that two brown people hanging out at a reservoir incites such terror in you is simply the product of your own paranoia.  It's irrational, but it's what this country has been reduced to.  We're afraid of shoes, bottles of shampoo, underwear, and brown people with unusual names.

It doesn't matter what hour of the day these two were at the reservoir.  The fact that Muslims are checking out a piece of good old American infrastructure is enough to send America's heroic bed-wetting brigade into full blown panic attacks.  The fact that you're prejudiced enough to assume that these two are up to something nefarious without even remotely having a fact one way or the other says quite a great deal about you and the type of person you are.

And, that's okay.  Like I said, you've been conditioned to be afraid of everything and see terrorism around every corner.  If you don't understand something, fear it.  It'll keep you safe, I guess.

CheatCommando: skullkrusher: 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.

Off your meds again, I see.


no... I just find it funny that others think 7 Pakistani chemical engineers trespassing at a farking Massachusetts reservoir in the middle of the night isn't suspicious in light of recent events in Boston. As another poster said, if they had some beers on them it would have been chalked up as students having a good time.

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.

Lsherm: 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 wasn't a Muslim.


FTFY.

Marcus Aurelius: 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?


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.

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.
