Are You Making the FBI Suspicious? See The Fliers That Reveal What They’re Looking For

Do you pay for your coffee each day with cash? Express an interest in remote-controlled airplanes? According to fliers created by the FBI and Bureau of Justice Assistance for distribution to a variety of businesses, this could be considered indications of terrorist tendencies, the Huffington Post reports.
The 25 fliers part of the campaign “Communities Against Terrorism” are targeted toward “threat areas,” which include airport service providers, beauty/drug suppliers, construction sites, hobby shops, Internet cafes, martial arts, rental cars and tattoo parlors, among others. Each target area comes with a downloadable flier profiling activity employees could look for to detect potential terrorists. See all the fliers here.
It is unclear when exactly these fliers were produced, but a grant number that funded the fliers, as printed at the bottom of each template, appears to have been issued in 2007.
Here are just a few samplings of suspicious activity labeled as warning signs within some of the fliers:Demonstrating unusual interest in remote-controlled aircraft.
Exhibiting unusual interest or specific interest in rocket motors or igniters.
ignificantly altered appearance (shaving beard, hair color, style of dress).
Make repeated returns with multiple individuals requesting identical tattoos.
Inquire about unusual methods of tattooing or placement of tattoos which could allow the concealment of extremist symbols.
Always pay cash or use credit card(s) in different name(s).
Evidence of a residential based internet provider (signs on to Comcast, AOL, etc.).
Gather information about vulnerable infrastructure or obtain photos, maps or diagrams of transportation, sporting venues, or populated locations.
Designing a paintball field to mimic security checkpoints (such as schools, theaters, airports, malls).The fliers also include more of the warning signs that you might expect, such as voicing anti-American or extremist sentiments, trying to “piggy back” into secure areas and unwillingness to provide complete identification in necessary situations. Some of the signs on the lists are suspicious but interestingly many are also completely normal actions taken with innocent intent by innocent people (like paying for a coffee with cash).
