Man arrested after taking pictures inside Callahan Tunnel

MuhammadMamun_GChannel 7 (WHDH) TV in Boston report:
Police have arrested a man caught taking photos inside the Callahan Tunnel.

According to investigators, the suspect claimed it was simple photography, but police are not taking any chances.

Massachusetts State Police said they found Muhammad Mamun taking photos inside the tunnel at 5 a.m. on Sunday.

“How could taking pictures put me in such a situation?” Mamun said. “People take pictures of Bunker Hill, they don’t get arrested. Why did I get arrested?”

He says he is a medical student and was going to leave the US on April 1- April Fool! Muhammad your not going anywhere!

Even if he is innocent, its better this way. Who in the world would want a physician who was dumb enough to surprised that he aroused suspicion by walking around at 5AM on Easter morning snapping pics of the inside of an old, ugly, heavily travelled tunnel under the Mystic River with a name like Muhammad? No Boston driver in their right mind droves through that tunnel without wondering if its going to hold up long enough…

  • I can’t get over this guy! later in the article he is quoted, “”I’m a doctor, I’m a medical student, I have an ankle bracelet like any other convicted felons.” So which is it, Mo, are you a medical student or are you a convicted felon like the others?

        A fucking knob? Did he have his goat with him, too? That’s a dead giveaway! 😉

      A bunch of Muslim men visiting from the UK were stopped and questioned by mall security recently in Vancouver after they were seen taking pictures of the map of a shopping mall (exactly why in the hell they were doing that was never fully explained); they ended up receiving a personal apology from the Mayor….I am convinced some of these incidents (“Clock Boy” was another example) are deliberate stunts; they KNOW that they are going to arouse suspicion and they can later whine about “Islamophobia” and score one for the team. They are not necessarily potential terrorists, but “soft” jihadists, waging not physical but psychological warfare.

      • Justin St.Denis

        Precisely. Islamist lawfare takes many forms…

  • Kathy Prendergast

    Plenty of Muslim doctors and medical students have gone all jihady too…eg. the guy who drove his jeep into the side of Glasgow Airport (2008?) and ended up only setting himself on fire. I’ll never forget the intervening bystander (a local Glasgow taxi driver, I believe) who was quoted as saying, “I kicked him so hard in the balls I broke a tendon in my foot!”

    “Why did I get arrested?”

    Because your actions, the time it occurred, and yes, your name and nationality, add up to too many suspicious factors to NOT investigate. And maybe it turns out to be nothing, maybe he’s a hobbyist photographer (I do a little, and urban industrial is one of my favorite themes)

    We don’t have to waterboard suspects like this, but neither should police/security apologize for doing their diligence. Nor should anyone be shamed for seeing something and saying something.

    Question him, if he tells you what camera settings he was using and what his preferred photography editing software is he might be legit.
    If he’s for real, he have those answers off the top of his head. Then go take a look at his laptop or computer. If he’s for real, he should also have all sorts of artsy pics to show you.
    Does he have a Flckr Account?
    If he’s for real, he will, or have a very good reason as to why not.

    These kinds of situations should be easily resolvable in less than an afternoon, maybe even less than an hour.

      Excellent! Well thought out. Maybe the guy isn’t a terrorist himself but merely taking pictures that…”his cousin’s friend” asked him to take.

      So what? One terror plot in making foiled. One message sent out to any future amateur Jamal Bonds. “Don’t gather intel for your pals in ISIS.”

  • I believe that the Mohammeds of the world deliberately stage such incidents because Islamophobia.

  • Justin St.Denis

    Another islamist provocation designed to yield a cash payout after the islamist lawyers take on the case…….

    Man these Goat Bangers are slick………………….
