Distributed Security

I hadn’t heard about the bomb scare this past weekend in NYC until late last night. I saw the story and investigation continuing this morning. What’s interesting to me, and inspiring, is how many people have been helping, and how quickly there is information coming in.

And how someone stepped up and reported something immediately, instead of walking away.

My guess is the police field calls like this regularly. I’m not sure about constantly, but probably regularly. However it’s good that people in the US are still looking to protect others, and they do report things like this.

Inspires me to keep my eyes open, even as I’m sad that we need to.
