Despite the fact that TSA agents have routinely been caught abusing their power for criminal ends, the agency is now instructing its airport security screeners to make photocopies of people’s credit cards, while Big Sis is also busy fighting terrorism and protecting America by confiscating chocolate advent calendars.
A Libertarian activist from Arizona who makes videos documenting confrontations with authority figures had a recent encounter with TSA agents from the “domestic surveillance squad,” who ransacked through his personal documents and took photocopies of his credit cards.
TSA workers habitually abuse their position to conduct illegal searches and seizures that represent clear violations of the 4th Amendment. There are numerous cases where TSA thugs have demanded to read people’s private emails and obtain their personal computer passwords, while asking invasive questions about personal income, religious and political beliefs, and arresting people for refusing to answer.
