Note from Editor: This article hit a nerve and subsequently went viral. The woman in the video, Joe’l, reached out to The Event Chronicle and wanted to share her thoughts on the video that originally made the rounds this past April. Many of you understandably had several questions regarding the video and began calling the Military Surplus store where Joe’l works. The phone has been ringing off the hook and has been disrupting their business. Joe’l has been kind enough to provide her personal email address at the end of her statement, so I ask that you respect the owners of the store and contact Joe’l at the provided email address instead of calling the business.
Or, you can post a comment at the end of this article and Joe’l will check back and answer your questions on this page.
If you shared the original article on Facebook, Twitter, or posted it to a forum, or your own website, I ask that you link back to this article and please share this information with your readers as well, so Joe’l’s voice can be heard. Thank you.

(Truth and Action) 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.
In this video a girl working at LZ Army Navy Surplus store in Auburn, NY tell us how a state trooper put up a flyer in their window which encourages customers to call the New York State Terrorism Tips Line to report this ‘suspicious activity’ under the as part of the “See Something, Say Something” campaign.
This is obviously nothing more than the beginning of the cultivation of ‘average citizen snitches’ who will rat out on their fellow citizens…
