Well, as an armchair engineer, say I noticed a vulnerability in an important public facility. With a relatively easy fix, btw. Where should that be directed? Would that subject me to some kind of weird investigation, say “why was this guy thinking like that?” I just noticed something, that if I was in charge of securing the place, I would put on top of the list.
Depends on what it is, and the size of the public facility. My first thought would be to the facility coordinator. My second thought would be your city councilperson. They mayor could be an option, also. It really depends on the size of the city, too (or, if it’s on a highway, the highway department regional head). There are too many variables to give an exact answer to this question, as stated, IMHO.
Well, as a facility, it is one of the biggest. I am not thinking about it for no reason. It is something I noticed soon after 9/11. Something anyone walking through the place would notice if they knew what to look for. For all I know, they may have fixed it already. I didn’t even look the last time I was there. It is the recent threats that have me worried again.
The NYC subway system runs a perpetual message urging us to report suspicious activities to authorities (I wish they’d STFU already, in fact–if I had something to report I would have done it the first few thousand times I heard the recording) so I can’t imagine you’d be the first to report something of the sort.
