+ - Water Tower Photographer Questioned->

Submitted by jzoetewey
jzoetewey (200538) writes "A friend of mine attempted to take a picture of the Kentwood, Michigan water tower. The City's operations and utilities manager (John Gorney) noticed him and attempted to get him to give his name--which he eventually did. Afterward, a local paper interviewed him. Instead of apologizing, the mayor indicated that he was proud of the employee, and justified it by saying that no one takes chances any more. The only change is that in the future, they will call in police instead of letting city workers handle the problem.

According to John Gorney, the incident will be reported to the Department of Homeland Security."
