The Department of Homeland Security wants your help to prevent a terror attack in Las Vegas. But would you know what tell- tell signs to look for?
What would you think if you saw someone with a map and binoculars? Or if you saw that same person walking up and down the Strip? In a tourist environment, it all may seem normal. But these are just two of seven signs of possible terrorist activities.
These are things everyday people may spot and think — it just doesn’t seem right. That’s why officials say your eyes can help derail a terrorists plan of attack.
The RJC is where you’ll find Larry Threadgill — pounding the pavement, passing out fliers. On these side walks of justice, you wouldn’t believe the things he’s seen. “From naked women, to guys trying to kill themselves.”
From the street corner Threadgill has an up close view. “Being the observant person that I am, I watch them anyway.”
Nevada’s Department of Homeland Security says Threadgill’s watchful eye makes him key to preventing terrorists attack in the valley. “The government thinks I could be apart of the first line of defense,” said Threadgill. Shocking news to him — because he wouldn’t know what to look for.
