  • TSA performing illegal searches

    http://www.aclu.org/national-securit...-and-detention

    The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is subjecting innocent Americans to unreasonable searches and detentions that violate the Constitution, according to a lawsuit filed today by the American Civil Liberties Union. The ACLU filed the complaint on behalf of a traveler who was illegally detained and harassed by TSA agents at the airport for carrying approximately $4,700 in cash.
    More details, including the iPhone recording of his detention:

      Thanks, Gill. I didn't see any followup on the initial ALCU page. I copied your link back to the discussion where I got the first link.

          No, they didn't fix it. The wholly incompetent agency, TSA, still exists.

            Don't question the government.
            They will question you !

            I listened to the audio again and it really makes me hate cops.
            I'm sorry but the absolute arrogance combined with blinding ignorance on the part of the police officer, while not surprising, is still stunning.
            Both of the cops, the real cops in the room understand PERFECTLY what the man is asking but they never answer his question.
            Isn't the law that you have to declare over $10,000 ?
            I can just picture the difference between what the cops wrote down in the report and the transcript of the Iphone recording.
            I bet none of the officials who falsified their reports suffered any consequence.

              Pilot banned from flying after refusing both full-body scan and pat-down. (Never mind that a few minutes later he would have had possession of a multi-ton weapon of mass destruction.)

                  I have rarely agreed with the ACLU since they seem to have a very liberal bias, BUT they did need to step in and it seems that they had a VERY VERY valid case. I don't and never have hated the police, but this is strong argument that police need to have a full understanding of the law and the Constitution. It's hard to protect and serve if your don't know the law and don't know the rights people have.

                    Okay, if you really think this, *suggest an alternative understanding of the subject in a way enlightening my primitive way of thinking to your own.

                    Ffs. The only people that have this opinion are those that don't actually know anything about the ACLU and what it does, only choosing to believe in media sound blurbs that say "Zomgz, the ACLU is denying a courthouse from showing baby Jesus, the godless heathen libruhls" or "Zomgz, the ACLU isn't protecting the anti-abortion nutjobs from being held back by police, though one of them shot a doctor last week" or "Zomgz, the ACLU is defending NAMBLA, how could they?!" or "Zomgz, the ACLU is defending those wacky Westboro Baptist Church people, the dirty Christian zealots!" or "Zomgz, the ACLU defended Rush Limbaugh, that makes them clearly conservative-biased!" Yeah, maybe they may get more of a liberal slant portrayed of them but maybe that's because the general mindset of conservative politics clashes with the very nature of what they do, REGARDLESS of who or what they defend or attack.
