Miami Police Take New Tack Against Terror

`Miami police announced Monday they will stage random shows of force at hotels, banks and other public places to keep terrorists guessing and remind people to be vigilant.

Deputy Police Chief Frank Fernandez said officers might, for example, surround a bank building, check the IDs of everyone going in and out and hand out leaflets about terror threats. [..]

Police Chief John Timoney said there was no specific, credible threat of an imminent terror attack in Miami. But he said the city has repeatedly been mentioned in intelligence reports as a potential target.’

Keep ’em scared so they don’t have time to think. That’s how they do it in the land of the free and the home of the brave. I’d say we’re upto about September of 1983 by now.

Update: Another article says there won’t be random ID checks. My mistake. It’s only August 1983.
