Official: water complaints could be 'act of terrorism'

Mt. Pleasant community says state is attempting to silence its complaints

A Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation deputy director warned a group of Maury County residents that unfounded complaints about water quality could be considered an “act of terrorism.”

“We take water quality very seriously. Very, very seriously,” said Sherwin Smith, deputy director of TDEC’s Division of Water Resources, according to audio recorded by attendees. “But you need to make sure that when you make water quality complaints you have a basis, because federally, if there’s no water quality issues, that can be considered under Homeland Security an act of terrorism.”

“Can you say that again, please?” an audience member can be heard asking on the audio.

Smith went on in the recording to repeat the claim almost verbatim.


  1. What about complaints about DEPUTY DIRECTOR Sherwin Smith? Are those acts of terrorism too? Are they taken very, very seriously?

    I am so looking forward to indulging myself in some guilty pleasures. One fine day (soon, I pray) I look forward to giving these tiny little wannabee Hitlers a big, hairy surprise.

  2. Unfreaking believable, what isn't considered an act of terror anymore? Oh, you said your cable sucks, that's a terrorist threat, when will these ppl stop??????

    1. There better be a bitter reckoning for these petty tyrants.
