New York DHS will pay you $500 to rat out ‘prepper’ neighbors buying legal goods

By way of Herschel Smith there is this: New York’s Division of Homeland Security is posting signs on businesses to encourage people to snitch on fellow citizens who buy such things as MRE’s (Meals Ready to Eat), ammunition, flash lights, match containers, gas masks and other items deemed to be ‘prepper’ in nature.

#1- Shop outside your local neighborhood, and pay cash (anonymity) .
#2- Get the name and phone numbers of your own neighborhood, local, and state gooberment employees and snitches, and flood the tip line with those names.

Can I collect $500 for each muni government I turn in? I'm pretty sure they all have that stuff. I know they do in my state.

Cool free money. We should just all submit thousands and thousands and thousands of reports of random citizens prepping. I think I saw a few hundred people at Costco the other day. the only reason you would buy giagntic boxes of cereal and and pasta is because you must be a prepper. Might as well get our take from leviathen and overwhelm them forcing them to work 20 hour days to prperly asses who gets the 500 dollars and who is a prepper.

And, of course, the job is never complete until you use the $500 to buy more neat stuff :)

Ummm. Maybe I'm not smart enough to understand, but 1) What, precisely, is wrong with being a prepper?
2) Why is the government paying a reward for identifying ordinary people conducting retail transactions...presumably out in the open?
3) If I lived there, I'd be coordinating the shopping and reporting of these "crimes" with my neighbors:
- Buy $500 worth of supplies, each
- Turn each other in
- Repeat

Here's a thought: why not get the phone numbers and addresses of all state dumocrat employees and starting flooding this office with by turning them in?

The people we call "government" are your enemy.

When the SHTF, you'll know what to do.

Somebody means to identify and eventually "eliminate" people who could be a threat, if what we all suspect is happening (and it is) goes any further, and it will.

They fear those they cannot yet "reach" because they know that 50,000 of them against several million, aren't very good odds.

I discount both law enforcement and the military because they will eventually do a stand down, as the costs of not doing so become crystal clear. There will only be two sides to choose from, and no excuses.

My only question is how many overpasses and ropes will be needed? I guess that depends upon the length of the overpass in question, as well as the length of the drop and original rope length without fancy knots.

I call them all the time and report things that I see , but they arent too interested . ( Like seeing the feds back down from armed men on horseback and then flee @ the Bundys ) I'll have to call them again tomorrow .

Once they get the emergency rolling they will need to confiscate any extras, the Gov will ratio out...much more fair...Tyrants. If I'm first my brothers and sister get a warning if I'm not first I get one.

I'll turn in everyone who shops at Costco.

I'll make millions!

It looks like this may be a non-issue. http://www.unclesamspress.com/2014/07/30/rumor-check-is-there-a-500-reward-for-reporting-neighbors-prepper-purchases/

I welcome confirmation it is or is not bogus.
