Complaining About the Water? That’s Terrorism!

Tiny Maury County, Tennessee seems like a strange place to go looking for terrorism, but that’s where we find ourselves focusing today.

There’s just something in the water in Maury County – or not depending on who you ask. Residents have been complaining about it for awhile though, insisting that children are getting sick drinking the tap water. The tap water is officially clean, according to Tennessee officials, and that’s where the terrorism comes in [1].

When environmental officials say that the water is clean, you better believe them [2], it turns out. One of the top state officials in charge of water quality warned residents that complaining about the quality of the water after he’d already got done telling them it was fine amounted to “an act of terrorism” and that they could find the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) coming after them for questioning it.

Locals in Mt. Pleasant, TN have been complaining the water is “cloudy” and “odd-tasting” for years. From now on they may have to do it quietly.
