My On Crime And Security Column: The Times Square Car Bomb Lesson, If You See Something, Say Something
The online small business magazine Businessknowhow.com published my On Crime & Security column today.
The column covers the Times Square car bomb lesson: if you see something, say something.
Thankfully, two street vendors adhered to the crime prevention slogan and flagged a mounted cop when they encountered the suspicious SUV parked near their vendor carts.

Since writing my column, the FBI have arrested a suspect, Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Pakistan.
Below are some photos of Times Square, the two street vendors, and the NYPD mounted cop:
