Kentwood, Michigan Photowalk Developing (get it?)

Photo from City of Kentwood’s website

So it looks like a small town mayor and his utilities manager picked the wrong bees nest to throw a rock at, and are now learning things the hard way via the World Wide Web (social media).

If you haven’t heard yet, Ed Heil, a 40-year-old amateur photographer (terrorist), was caught last week photographing the City of Kentwood’s water tower (“high profile terrorist target”). His “nerdy” hobby (suspicious activity) brought the wrath of the city’s utility workers (vigilantes) who followed Heil all the way to the library (terrorist hideout) where they harassed and threatened him until he finally caved in and gave up his name to these “brave patriots” (self-anointed assholes).

But rather than apologize to Heil for the utilities workers’ behavior, Richard Root, Kentwood’s mayor (fascist leader) praised their actions:

Mayor Richard Root said no one takes chances any more. He said he was proud of city workers for their diligence, adding that they responded appropriately.

Long story short—everybody on the internet (especially photographers) who can think clearly and see right through the last decade of terrorism hysteria and Homeland Security (Theater), are rightfully annoyed. But not JDnew (see the comment he left  on our original post).

So a group of photographers (al-Qaeda sympathizers) from the Grand Rapids, Michigan, flickr group are organizing a photowalk (recon mission) this week to show Mayor Root and the town’s utilities manager, John Gorney, that they can’t push photographers around and get away with it.

    I wish I could participate, but CA is a little far.

    Can’t wait to see your post covering the photowalk. I wonder if the computers at Homeland Insecurity will blow a fuse while they try to track and monitor the event.
