According to yesterday’s Herald, Boston City Hall has been testing ePanicButton software. “[City] workers would be able to hit a button on their computer or push a pedal on the floor to summon help if an angry taxpayer storms into City Hall or if someone arguing a parking ticket gets out of hand,” the Herald reported.
“Angry taxpayers”? Aren’t those the people who showed up at those dangerous Tea Party rallies, too? I bet the Department of Homeland Security has a file on them!
Are we sure a panic-button protection is enough? Maybe we should equip every government office with a panic room. How about a trap door or even a moat? You can’t take chances with these crazed taxpayers. I say that if someone heads to City Hall with a “Palin 2012” button on their lapel, we should release the Rottweilers!
