Tsa Checking Bus Riders Now!!!!
Sorry TSA, you don't have permission to feel me up today. That would be my answer. Where does it end folks?
Screeners from the Transportation Security Administration checked passengers at two Downtown city bus stops this morning, looking for weapons and suspicious behavior.
David Kane, federal security director for TSA in Indianapolis, called it a "VIPR" operation.
"It's called Visual Intermodal Prevention Response. We have plainclothes inspectors, blue-gloved uniformed security officers who are checking baggage, the behavior detection officers, and federal air marshals, which are the law enforcement arm of TSA."
Security stations were set up at bus stops at Capitol Avenue and Market Street, and Ohio and Meridian streets.
Some passengers were patted down or submitted to having bags checked.
TSA said the searches were “by-permission,” meaning patrons could decline to be checked. Those who did would not be turned away, an official said, unless they otherwise appeared to be a security threat.
Who would give permission?
I wonder why anyone would give their permission to be searched? I wonder if the officers made it clear that the search was voluntary? I am very skeptical about this.
