Message Subject Houston Man Receives Visit from FBI after Photographing Weather
Poster Handle T Ceti H.C. Radnarg
Post Content
A man who snapped photos of a brewing storm last month received a visit Friday from an FBI Agent, inquiring why he would want to take such photos.

Michael Galindo explained that he was simply volunteering for the National Weather Service.

And FBI Agent David Pileggi seemed to be satisfied with that response.

But Galindo was left wondering whether he now has a permanent FBI file.

“He told me, ‘you’re not a threat and you are doing a public service but just be careful next time,’” Galindo said in a telephone interview with Photography is Not a Crime.

The problem arose because Galindo happened to be taking photos near the Lyondell Refinery outside of Houston on September 13, even though he was never standing on the refinery’s property.

Someone from the refinery spotted him and called police, whom apparently arrived after he had left.

Police then contacted the local FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, which bills itself as “nation’s front line on terrorism.”

Galindo told the agent that he volunteers for a NWS program called Skywarn that trains citizens to monitor the weather in the name of “protecting lives and property.”

lmao.i would have said because i can and i will do it again unless you can show me the deed to the sky proving you own it...i will represent myself in court and be there waiting on that deed to the sky..then i will tell him the sky starts where the ground ends and all above ground pictures even an inch and above ground would then be seen as illegal..so all movies shot above ground would be in the sky,and they would be illegal also..the sky starts where the ground ends...we even move around in the sky with only the bottom of our feet or shoes touching the ground...
