Tenn. Official Says Complaining About Water Quality Could Be 'Act of Terrorism' - Reason 24/7 : Reason.com

Here's my WTF is wrong with our country post of the day... no words for this but WTF

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.”“We take water quality very seriously. Very, very seriously,” said Sherwin Smith, deputy director of TDEC’s Division of Water Resources, according to audio recorded by attendees. “But you need to make sure that when you make water quality complaints you have a basis, because federally, if there’s no water quality issues, that can be considered under homeland security an act of terrorism.”

"Can you say that again, please?” an audience member can be heard asking on the audio.

Smith went on in the recording to repeat the claim almost verbatim.

I'm guessing that guy, Sherwin Smith, might not be a good source of legal advice.
