    well?


    the TSA have been popping up just about everywhere it seems on the highways running some sort of check points

    there is an encouraging video of a guy that just said "no thanks"
    I don't want to participate and they held him a few minutes, scratched their heads and let him go



    what is your plan of action if you drive up on one of these?

    i don't know the accuracy of these reports.. but a guy at work told me that the tsa has purchased 'mobile
    barricade equipment. IE.. so they literally could drive p to a road and setup a stop.

    anyone heard about this?

    Untill you made this post, and I goggled TSA Checkpoints, I didn't know they existed! Just what we need! Another Government Police Force that isn't legal constitutionally! I don't know what I'ld do at this point. Got to do some more research!

    The TSA has announced its intention to expand the VIPR program to include roadside inspections of commercial vehicles, setting up a network of internal checkpoints and rolling out security procedures already active in airports, bus terminals and subway stations to roads and highways across the United States.

    It appears that TSA has more power than your State authorized Troopers. TX State Troopers only have power within the State of TX. TSA can set up checkpoints where ever they want to within the borders of the U.S.

    The article is almost two years old and so far, no check points.

    The only thing I have seen mentioned in the link Carver provided is the radiation detectors. They're set up at scales and have thermal sensors as well. Funny thing though, I was enduring an inspection in Ky and a truck rolled through and set off the radiation alarm. The truck was loaded with red facing bricks (the ones with holes in them). The inspector told me it happens every time a load of bricks goes through.

    red brick has a higher background radiation output than cinder block or wood.. etc...

    if you remember obama, during the 08 campaign, he touted having a civilian force equal to the army.

    well, he has one in DHS and they just ordered 1.6 BILLION rounds of ammo to "practice" with
