TSA Expands Searches From Airports to Everywhere
TSA creates atmosphere of fear as the agency broadens its reach into our daily lives.

The TSA recently ordered airport valet attendants to search a parked car without a warrant and without prior notification given to the vehicle’s owner.
The owner, Laurie Iacuzza, told News10NBC that she found a search notice on her car parked at the Greater Rochester International Airport after she returned from her trip.
When she dropped her car off at the valet prior to her flight, she received no warnings that her car could be subjected to search.
“I think the public should be aware of the fact that if their car is going to be searched, they should be informed of it,” she said to News10NBC.
This TSA-ordered search is yet another example of the agency’s expansion beyond the concrete confinements of airport terminals and into Americans’ daily lives.
