NYPD Eyes Disrupting Cell Phones in Event of Terrorist AttackWouldn't you think that the terrorists would try to block electronic communications too... and that even of the rescue workers? Or maybe not. During 9/11 NYC cell phone service (and television) was disrupted when the WTC collapsed. What a mess. Don't attack NY again, terrorists. please.
The New York Police Department is looking for ways to disrupt cell phone calls and other forms of electronic communication among terrorists in the event of another terror attack in New York, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly says.
Kelly stressed the need for law enforcement to be able to disrupt cell phone calls and other communications during an attack, pointing to threats posed by the media when they disclose law enforcement tactics during live coverage that can get passed back to the attackers.
