    Shh! Don't tweet what the po-po are doing!

    http://www.komonews.com/news/local/P...271182631.html

    The "TweetSmart" campaign began in late July by a coalition of nine agencies, including the Washington state patrol and the Seattle police, and aims to raise awareness about social media's potential impact on law enforcement.

    Some have called the effort a step that could lead to censorship; others dismissed it as silly. Police, however, say it's just a reminder at a time when cell phones and social networks can hasten the lightning-quick spread of information.
    And the unintentionally hilarious kicker:
    Perry Merriel, a trucker from Ephrata, Washington, said he's not sure why the public needs a reminder to follow common sense on social media. "They are putting their lives on the line for you," he said.

    "It should go without saying: don't advertising what they're doing," he said.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    As the FedGov comoonity-organizer, the P-resident is tone and tint deaf, so too are his toothless-tyrant's teeth. I wonder whose side do they think US on, particularly in the Pacific Northwest?

    Yeah, don't tweet it, just post the live streaming video instead.

    The police put your lives on the line so they can go home safe each night. Also remember that the police can write their own warrants which a judge will just sign retroactively so you cannot refuse them a search anymore either simply because they are putting your lives on the line here.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.
