TSA VIPR Teams AND CBP Agents Spotted Patrolling Music Festival
Rooting out the real terrorists
May 29, 2012
The Federal government is hell bent on keeping America safe from dangerous terrorists. The kind of terrorists that like to disguise themselves as happy go lucky electronic music festival goers.
Presumably that is why both TSA Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) teams AND Customs and Border Protection agents were deployed to Detroit’s Electronic Music Festival recently.
Activist John Corbett, who is involved in an ongoing lawsuit against the TSA, reports that he personally ran into armed TSA agents in the parking lot of the festival.
The agents told Corbett that they were there because “maybe Detroit police are a little short-staffed.”
“When I followed up by asking them if they were a VIPR team, they perked up a bit, and were as shocked as I was to see them that a member of the public knew what they were up to.” Corbett notes.
“It turned out that, as best I could gather, this was just an ordinary patrol for them.” he adds in a blog post.
