Growing concern in the United States regarding arming and expansion of authorities of domestic police, in apparent violation of constitutional rights, and out of intent to suppress the People in case of anti-government disturbances, all under the official guise of fighting international terrorism.
Tennessee first state to use TSA statewide
Tennessee has become the first American state to use the TSA statewide, with officers placed in airports, bus stations, weigh stations and on the highways. Using Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR), the TSA is traveling across the state monitoring the highways and weigh stations.
- Tuesday Tennessee was first to deploy VIPR simultaneously at five weigh stations and two bus stations across the state.
- Agents are recruiting truck drivers, like Rudy Gonzales, into the First Observer Highway Security Program to say something if they see something.
- �Not only truck drivers, but cars, everybody should be aware of what�s going on, on the road,� said Gonzales.
- QIt�s all meant to urge every driver to call authorities if they see something suspicious.
At what point do people finally get angry enough to tell the TSA to go away? Why are people willingly accepting these intrusive, and possibly illegal, �security� measures into our lives? When will we all have to start carrying our papers with us?
And what the hell happened to �The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.�
Deprivation of rights, fear mongering, criminalizing normal behavior, making every American afraid of everyone and everything is not the country I grew up in. It is not the country of freedoms, it is the country of tyranny.
Nothing is going to change without a major revolution and the American people don�t seem prepared to take that step. Those in power won�t step aside until this happens. They will push the fear of terrorism as far as they can.
TSA- Transportation Security Agency
The TSA was created as part of the Aviation and Transportation Security Act, sponsored by Don Young in the United States House of Representatives and Ernest Hollings in theSenate, passed by the 107th U.S. Congress, and signed into law by President George W. Bush on November 19, 2001. Originally part of the United States Department of Transportation, the TSA was moved to the Department of Homeland Security on March 25, 2003.
