Should radical Algebra terrorists possessing weapons of math instruction be on the no-fly list?
Learn what are the sines of suspicious persons when something doesn't add up & the factors that multiply exponentially towards spotting a derivative of an terrorist ideology!
Female passenger delays flight for 2 hours by reporting a mathematician as a terrorist because he was scribbling equations on paper.
Used to be we were greater than the sum of our parts but now are reduced to the lowest common denominator. Should the obtuse woman following the jingoistic propaganda of "See something, say something" have been charged with flight interference? Or the airline sued for stupidity?
Is this an actual case? In todays divisive culture I would not be surprised if 50% would want them on a no fly list and 50% would not and the other 50% couldnt decide one way or another.
Oh course it's real: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/pro … f3789617f7
Is this one case stupid? Yes.
Does it mean stop looking for terrorists and threats to the nation? No, a la San Bernadino and the constant stream of people arrested for trying to join ISIS or raise money for various terrorist groups.

ACLU on the See Something Say Something campaign:
The "Functional Standard" for Suspicious Activity Reporting defines "suspicious activity" to include many activities that are not only lawful, but protected by the First Amendment. Even worse, the FBI encourages fusion centers not to limit themselves to the Functional Standard and instead to report "all potentially terrorism-related activity." With such a broad and vague standard, no wonder we are seeing innocent activities reported as "suspicious."
The Government wants you paranoid and turn in your neighbors. Please re-watch "1984" with Richard Burton in it where you are reported to the thought police if you display any signs of unorthodoxy or nonconformity.
The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM, defines “oppositional defiant disorder as almost any behavior perceived by someone else as strange or bothersome might be categorized as a symptom of ODD. This includes questioning authority.

Particularly since Sept. 11, 2001 all citizens have been encouraged to report suspicious actions and activities to the police and/or homeland security. Have you ever reported someone? If so, for what and do you know the outcome?
