Watch out for terrorists!

The FBI has a nice set of flyers warning people with businesses about possible threats - but they don't make them public.

That's our job:

FBI “Communities Against Terrorism” Suspicious Activity Reporting Flyers

February 1, 2012 in Federal Bureau of Investigation
The following collection of 25 flyers produced by the FBI and the Department
of Justice are distributed to local businesses in a variety of industries to
promote suspicious activity reporting. The flyers are not released publicly,
though several have been published in the past by news media and various
law enforcement agencies around the country.  We have compiled this
collection from a number of online sources.
To view the documents, click on a threat area in the menu to the left
and the PDF will appear on the right side of the page. You can also
download the complete collection of files (ZIP Archive, 6.27 MB).
Threat Areas
At the bottom of the flyer for "Electronics Stores", we find this caveat:
It is important to remember that just because someone’s speech,
actions, beliefs, appearance, or way of life is different; it does not
mean that he or she is suspicious.
Right after this warning:
Unusual comments regarding radical theology, vague/cryptic warnings, or
anti-U.S. sentiments that appear to be out-of-place and provocative
We certainly don't want to profile people.

The "Recognising Sleepers" and 'Tattoo Shops" flyers are particularly entertaining.
