Watch: Janet Napolitano Tells Walmart Shoppers to Look for 'Suspicious' Activity in Video to Air at Checkout Counter


If you see something suspicious in the parking lot or in the store, say something immediately. Report suspicious activity to your local police or sheriff. If you need help, ask a Walmart manager for assistance," says Janet Napolitano in a new DHS video:

"It's part of a new Department of Homeland Security program that could see Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano's face on video screens in malls, retail outlets and hotels across the United States. The Walmart video, which will soon be launched at 230 locations nationwide and may eventually be expanded to nearly 600 locations in 27 states, features Napolitano thanking the retailer by name for participating in the program."

  1. WE ARE AT WAR people .... should the government NOT be asking people to be aware ?

    During WW2 it was very common to remind the public that "Loose lips sink ships!"

  3. That woman ruins my holidays, that is for sure. She is a threat to democracy and manages to assault Americans on a daily basis. She and her boss both need to be fired.

  4. As if homosexuals needed another reason not to shop at WalMart.

    Spend your pink dollars elsewhere!

  6. It's the same ploy Dick Cheney used: keep them all afraid, make them think we're protecting them, and they'll vote for us. This helps nothing but Obama's re-election chances. Shame on whoever concocted this bullshit.

  7. Seen something suspicious? Lady, I'm guessing you've never heard of peopleofwalmart.com?

  8. Poster Luke is correct. This kind of stuff, worse actually, has been going on for years in the UK. Started with the IRA terrorist campaigns. Similar campaigns have existed for quite a while now also on certain large public transit systems like NY, Wash, Boston, etc.,

    It's creepy and over the top having these things at a Walmart checkout. Walmart was picked for a reason and it probably has to do with psychological profiles of the 'typical' Walmart shopper. The typical suburban lower middle class [female] shopper makes the perfect snitch.

  11. Tony X, even in WWII, the homeland propaganda was ridiculous.

    Videos on repeat like this in public places were once the staple set dressing of a political Twilight Zone episode or a bad SciFi channel movie that wanted to look dystopian.

    And now it is happening. If it weren't so insidiously corrosive on the psyche of the Herd, it would be laughably absurd.

    However, it also strikes at the seemingly paradoxical issue the American Herd has. Clearly, they are blind and narrow-minded. They live a sheltered life idealizing white picket fences and calling a heaven of the soccer mom hell of suburbia. The best defense when there are agents who wish to harm the nation is for its citizenry to be alert. It would seem to be common sense, but the problem is that the Herd cannot distinguish between the justified suspicion of a nervous person repeatedly checking the inside of his bag and someone just outside of their normal experience.

  12. Great will be the day when this disgusting cow is out of office! Hopefully the same day Messiah Dumbama is out of office!

  14. Just how many Federal crimes occur in Walmart parking lots?

    Shouldn't she be looking at corporate headquarters instead?

  15. Dear Janet Darling,

    Get a clue. Walmart itself inspires suspicion.

    You go in there and you have to wonder how many prisoners in China it took to create all the cheap and flimsy merchandise.

    But the key suspicion is with the owners...how did they get so rich without paying off politicians to get such low prices, low pay scales and the right to construct all those dreary airless box stores which have bankrupted mom and pop and trashed mainstreet?

  16. WHO thought this was a GOOD IDEA in her staff?

  17. Just what we need. A kinder gentler way to keep us afraid.

    Big Brother is that you?

    I feel so much better now.

  18. So the lowly Walmart employee will be properly trained to gauge what is "suspicious" behavior without overreacting? Look how the "professionals" at the TSA act! That's as stupid as asking a minimum wage employee at McDonalds to watch for signs of food poisoning. Shop any Wal Mart in the US (or Canada) for that matter all customers look "suspicious" to me LOL.

  19. Boo!

    Oh wait I saw something suspicious at Walmart the other day, a "made in USA" sticker, but upon removal I saw that it said "made in China" underneath... very suspicious indeed...

  20. But JUST Wal-Mart. If you're in Meijer, Target, etc, don't say a WORD.

    Our country is so stupid.

  21. Does this seem redundant to anyone else?

    I mean, if something seems amiss, it's not like I need a personal reminder from the DHS Secretary in order to pick up my phone and dial 911 or walk over to the security guard and mention something.

    The only thing this video is good for is a constant reminder that the world is full of pissed-off extremists. I'm sure that's just the cheery thought everyone needs when making those last minute holiday purchases. Peace on Earth and a terror alert.
