You WILL Cooperate With The TSA

Screw the 4th Amendment…here we go again.

“Transportation security agents … asked to examine them, and he was detained when he refused.”

Airport spokesman Joe McBride … described the customer… as “belligerent” ”

“He was not being cooperative,” McBride said of the passenger.

…Bridget Patton [FBI Spokeschick}. She declined to identify the item found in the bag.

The passenger was taken into custody for questioning, McBride said.”

Well, I wonder if it was something completely innocuous…like a radio or a toy he was going to bring to someone. Maybe it was a gun…reportedly the guy is a former NY cop.

Now, if it had been an explosive device and they were so uber worried about that……wtf would they ask him to open the bag? And why should he get hauled off and interrogated for saying NO? I would say no. I would tell them to get a warrant too. That’s not belligerence, that’s standing up for your rights.

“…Los Angeles International Airport.

Two of the men went into a restroom and refused to come out, and a third was acting suspiciously

The three men were determined to have no ties to terrorism and released, the FBI said.”

Mile High Club is more likely. lol
