TN does it again!

This article (with autoplaying adverts)

A Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation deputy director warned a group of Maury County residents that unfounded complaints about water quality could be considered an “act of terrorism.”

The quote is quite clear, he repeats it, while being recorded.

I'm dumbfounded at this stupidity, refering to DHS and Terrorism is the new catch-all excuse.

As I pointed out with that quote from the report about Britain's GCHQ doing monitoring, we're very quickly mission-creeping from "security" and "terror" to "economic well-being".

The logical extension is "whatever makes a bureaucrat uncomfortable". Seems like Tennessee is solidly there.
