by police to fire only plastic pellets for training exercises, it is possible for them to be 
converted back to lethal use. The two men who allegedly broke into the building were 
"low-level burglars" who were looking to strip the building of copper wiring to sell to 
support their drug habits, the police commander said. Police are continuing to try to 
find the weapons, but do not know how many people may have bought guns from the 
men or any of their identities, he said. It is also possible the suspects have stashed the 
guns, police officials said.

his car. A 58-year-old man accused of walking into a Tulsa, Oklahoma police station 
and threatening to burn down the city was arrested and jailed October 28. He was

 – (National) Symantec survey finds global critical 
infrastructure providers less aware and engaged in government 
programs. 
Symantec Corporation October 31 released the findings of its 2011 Critical 
Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Survey, which found a drop in awareness and 
engagement on a global basis as measured by the CIP Participation Index. Compared to 
2010, companies surveyed this year show a CIP Participation Index of 82 percent in 
government protection programs, down 18 points from last year. Critical infrastructure 
providers come from industries that are of such importance that if their cyber networks 
were successfully attacked and disabled, it would result in an actual threat to national 
security.
