    And? What were they doing? What did they have? Were they dumping toxic chemicals or poisons in the water or were they playing shuffleboard?

    BELCHERTOWN (CBS) – Shortly after midnight Tuesday, seven people were caught trespassing at the Quabbin Reservoir.

    State Police say the five men and two women are from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Singapore, and “cited their education and career interests” for being in the area. The men told police they were chemical engineers and recent college graduates.

    The Quabbin, in Belchertown, is one of the country’s largest man-made public water supplies. Boston’s drinking water comes from the Quabbin and the Wachusett Reservoirs.

    State Police say there were no warrants or advisories on any of the individuals and “there was no evidence that the seven were committing any crime beyond the trespassing.”

    All seven were allowed to leave and will be summonsed to court for trespassing. The FBI is investigating and routine checks of public water supplies have been increased following the incident.

    The seven individuals currently live in Amherst, Cambridge, Sunderland, Northampton and New York City. Police have not released their names because a court date has not been set.

    At first when I read it I didn't see what the big deal was. Then I re-read and am questioning why supposed recent college grads and chemical engineers would take a risk by breaking the law and trespassing. Definitely sounds fishy and I would be scared to use the water supply for a while if I lived around there.

    "A preliminary background check for warrants and Interpol Wanted Persons turned up no warrants, detainers or advisories and the group was allowed to leave."

    Seems some folks are slow to learn. How many suicide bombers have been on the Interpol list? Few I suppose. Should have been charged with tresspassing and then deported. I guess Boston is the new New York for the Middle Easterners. Too much security in one place, move on to another.

    They were deported - to Boston. :) It does sound rather fishy. I wonder if the cops searched the cars and persons for chemicals or other pollutants. Sounds like they would have had RAS.

    Not a lot of info to go on but it does make one wonder if they were checking on how fast an LEO response would be.

    Our enemies do not rest; they will probe and test the defenses of any potential target or vehicle that could be used to bring harm to our country. Sadly too few Americans actually understand how serious the threat against our way of life is, and our government does everything it can to downplay the very existence of any threat at all.

    Criminetly!


    They were college students going for a skinny dip...


    Or


    They were terrorists, looking to poison the water supply.


    My, how things have changed in the last several years, huh?

    I'm beginning to favor complete isolationism. Kick 'em all out. don't let any more in... quit supporting foreign governments, quit importing HUMAN FOOD from China... Quit exporting help desks to India...

    I really wish it were that simple.... unfortunately it ain't.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    I'm so dang sick of this politically correct mess, and I'll probably end up getting fired for not being pc at my job. For any Christians out there, Jesus was the most NOT PC person that ever walked this earth and He got hung on a cross for it. I want to be like Him (hard to do but I try) so I refuse to be PC!

    Good point.....and all it costs is a hundred bucks for a trespassing ticket. Much cheaper than taking 747 flying lessons.

    I'd bet we haven't heard the end of this.

    So some college students got together and had some fun in a scenic area?

    And this is news worthy because?

    They told the trooper they wanted to see the Quabbin because of their career interests, according to state police spokesman David Procopio“........Further investigation is being undertaken because of the late hour when they were observed, their curious explanation for why they wanted to see the reservoir, and the fact that they were in an area marked no trespassing,” Procopio said.

    Hmmmm? Let's see the data/specs about the Quabbin are available online, plus Google Earth view, but they decide to go look at it "in the dark"? What professional details can you really see? Sinister or not, somebody ain't telling the truth.

    A couple of college students with backpacks attending a marathon seem a lot more innocent to me?
