Roving TSA ‘Viper’ squads now violating your rights at train stations, bus depots and ferry landings

Bound and determined to violate the Fourth amendment rights of as many Americans as possible and not satisfied with doing so merely at the nation’s airports, now the Transportation Security Administration has taken to violating the rights of Americans in just about every travel venue in the country.

The L.A. Times reports that the TSA has developed and deployed more than two dozen so-called “Viper” (which stands for Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response) teams that so far have conducted more than 9,300 “unannounced checkpoints,” as well as “other search operations,” in the past year at a growing number of train stations, subways, ferry terminals and other mass transit locations.

“We are not the Airport Security Administration,” boasted Ray Dineen, the air marshal in charge of the TSA office in Charlotte, N.C. “We take that transportation part seriously.”

If only the agency – and the government that created it – took the Constitution as seriously, traveling in the post-9/11 world would be a heck of a lot more enjoyable, not to mention far less hostile to individual liberties.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    How Long Before TSA Shuts Down Americans’
    Right—To Travel Freely in their own Country?

    The U.S. can’t become a Police State until the 4th Amendment is either eliminated or so watered down it has no legal effect.

    TSA has moved ahead toward establishing thousands of Check Points at surface transportation locations. One can’t help recall at similar Check Points the Nazi Military and Police constantly harassed, searched and delayed German travelers, especially persons deemed politically undesirable at roadway checkpoints, when boarding trains and at bus stops. Some Germans were stopped and delayed daily, many lost their jobs because they were late or missed work. Germans without probable cause were put on (Nazi do not hire lists) similar to the lists started in 2010 by U.S. Homeland Security. One must wonder if today’s outspoken Americans that defend the Constitution, e.g., writers and Bloggers might later be deemed “Belligerents” by U.S. Government and constantly stopped, searched, questioned at checkpoints without cause or warrants; forced to endure X-ray scans damaging their health and or Indefinitely Detained. It is foreseeable Americans could be intimidated from traveling by TSA.

    TSA recently refused to provide comprehensive information regarding test results concerning TSA back-scatter and other x-ray scanners at airports that might determine if (frequent flyers) could be physically harmed, sustain organ damage from repeated X-Ray scans. Currently one can only guess how much radiation is covertly being transmitted by U.S. Government and police into the bodies of “Persons of Interests” repeatedly scanned” without warrants, X-rayed on the street, in their vehicles, inside their homes. The Obama government ordered 500 back-scatter X-ray vans that U.S. Government and local Police will without public oversight or warrants to scan private homes—vehicles, Citizens walking, riding a bicycle, standing someplace. Corrupt government and police can too easily over X-RAY Citizens they deem undesirable.
