'Nazi-style' TSA roadside checkpoint rights abuses in effect - October 21st 2011, 11:07 PM

http://www.examiner.com/human-rights...-abuses-effect


Reaching a new height of human rights abuse and Fourth Amendment rights violation, Tennessee on Tuesday became the first state to establish road checkpoints. The checkpoints, similar to those used in Nazi Germany, are being operated by TSA teams under the new Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) program.



"If you were one of the many Americans that thought you and your family could 'opt-out' of being manhandled by the TSA by simply not flying, you were wrong," Brasscheck TV reported Thursday.
"TSA VIPR (Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response) teams are now conducting roadside searches in Tennessee, and soon to be in other states as well."
Agents are recruiting truck drivers, like Rudy Gonzales, seen in the Channel 5 News report, in the First Observer Highway Security Program to 'say something if they see something'.


Today, in Tennessee, drivers on Tennessee roads have no Fourth Amendment protections against government abuses reported Brasscheck.
"The random inspections really aren't any more thorough than normal, according to Tennessee Highway Patrol Colonel Tracy Trott who says paying attention to details can make a difference," reported Channel 5.
"Tuesday's statewide "VIPR" operation isn't in response to any particular threat, according to officials."
Rights abuses have escalated in the United States following September 11, 2001 mass murder that many scholars and the official 911 Commission concur was a staged event, based on lies, for the purpose of rights abuses under the guise of "terrorism."
As reported last week in the Examiner, in Illinois, Chicago's Union Station also has a checkpoint.

This is disturbing.

Good national security = Nazism

Yes, the oh so evil TSA is now making sure that Terrorists aren't smuggling WMDs and other devices on the highways, which is a far better place to smuggle things then an airplane anyway....

+1 for Idiotic Americans throwing the N word around...

The Nazis used airplanes, so I guess we shouldn't too. I think what they are doing is acceptable.

If all they are searching is trucks, then go for it. This is simply a more thorough search than what is already conducted at weigh stations in many states to check for dirty bombs, hazmats, radiation, etc. However, if they are screening motorists' vehicles and the like, that's not very cool, and it's a CLEAR violation of the 4th amendment.

I haven't got time to read through the whole article, I might later...


But if the searches are gonna be completely random, stopping anyone with no particular agenda apart from some vague reports over the phone from another driver, I'm against it.

I can imagine assholes, for their own personal reasons stopping passenger cars going on weekend outings. Some might perhaps target black drivers, or women, just to harass them. How is this new thing gonna be policed? Or are people just gonna let them do wtf they want? 'Cos they will then.


"I don't care about politics"
Then politics doesn't care about you either. Truth. You've got to make your voice heard, if you want to be listened to. But that's too logical for some people, so let me go a step further. Not making your voice heard, leaves other people free to hijack it by speaking on your behalf, even if they don't actually give a shit about you. That's politics. So, make your voice heard. That's not a quote from anywhere. That's just me.

I'm confused as to WHO they're searching. Are they searching every single car that goes through? How thorough are they searching? Are they bringing in some sort of bomb sniffing dogs (do those exist?)? Doing body searches? I mean, that all makes a difference to me. If it's just a quick look into the car and at the people, then if you aren't doing anything wrong you should be fine. But if we're talking a full search of every car/truck then I could see how that'd be in violation of the 4th amendment.

Lol I didn't know there was a video in the link. I didn't have time to click on it earlier.
