REPURPOSING “ANTI-TERRORISM” GRANTS:
Even though Memphis hasn’t suffered a terrorist attack, the city is using federal grants to fight crime, which might lead to the discovery of a terrorist suspect. Other cities are using federal money with similar programs.
Reading the whole story, it sure sounds like they’re just spending the money on stuff they do anyway, and calling it anti-terrorism because it “might lead to the discovery of a terrorist suspect.” Likewise, my posting of photos from Long’s Drug Store constitutes an anti-terrorism effort, since if there’s a terrorist eating lunch there, someone might recognize him. Where’s my federal money?
