    This is some scary shit....


    COPS: 'Chemical engineers' from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia caught trespassing at reservoir... Supplies water to Boston.

    BELCHERTOWN (CBS) – Shortly after midnight Tuesday, seven people were caught trespassing at the Quabbin Reservoir.

    State Police say the five men and two women are from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Singapore, and “cited their education and career interests†for being in the area. The men told police they were chemical engineers and recent college graduates.

    The Quabbin, in Belchertown, is one of the country’s largest man-made public water supplies. Boston’s drinking water comes from the Quabbin and the Wachusett Reservoirs.

    State Police say there were no warrants or advisories on any of the individuals and “there was no evidence that the seven were committing any crime beyond the trespassing.â€

    All seven were allowed to leave and will be summonsed to court for trespassing. The FBI is investigating and routine checks of public water supplies have been increased following the incident.

    The seven individuals currently live in Amherst, Cambridge, Sunderland, Northampton and New York City. Police have not released their names because a court date has not been set.

    I've been wondering for years why this shit hasn't already been happening.

    So they're story is that they were trespassing for educational reasons?? Yeah, that seems legit. I'm sure background checks are happening. See what the FBI turns up

    Complete bullshit, and of course our government is buying it lest we offend Muslims. Water supply is the domain of Civil Engineers, especially on the upstream side, chemical engineers are rarely, if ever, involved (and they'd only be involved at the treatment side downstream). I'm a Civil Engineer and my firm manages the water supply for several major cities and numerous mid- and small-sized cities, not a Chemical Engineer involved whatsoever. "Tolerance" is gonna get even more Americans killed, these Muslims were doing a dry run, and attacks like this can be deadly and expensive. Time to call Islam for what it is, a political movement / death cult and ban it.

    What a wonderful thing immigration "diversity" is! We're all proud that we are so open-minded. Screw those Irish guys who used to work in banking fleeing the horrible economy there, we need more unskilled Saudis and Pakistanis.

    I guess you know what to do. Start digging a well in your back yard.

    I wonder if we didn't kill off most of the hardcore terrorist types from 2001-2010, so things settled down somewhat, and now a second generation of losers has come of age. There's always a small contingent of zealots in any population. Kids who were 6 years old when 9/11 happened are now 18.

    depends what it is. if it degrades quickly, it's good. if it's heavy enough, it'll sink to the bottom. ricin will disappear because of the sunlight and eventually chlorine. but some stuff won't.

    Enough with the sarcasm. I think it's the United States external behavior and not its internal makeup that contributes to the violence.

    The quabbin isn't where i would pick to attack. It's 4 towns that were flooded and holds over 400 billion gallons. It would take a lot of anything to make that volume toxic.

    It's terrorism, it doesn't have to functionally work, just scare people to not use the water supply.
