    Jesus some of these robocops are scarily ignorant.  Did you get a badge number on these clowns?   Love his response when Julio says this is America.  Nazi cop response:  “America… Nothing!”   

    Kudos again to the real activists getting shit done and taking the time to calmly stand up for everyone’s rights.  Try to remember….First they came for the communists,and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a communist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists,and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a trade unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews,and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Jew.
    Then they came for meand there was no one left to speak out for me.”Won’t somebody Testify, Kick a Hole Right In The Sky!” -RHCP http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thiN_I-7OxQhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7480tXyxoM&list=UUvgtENkvL6GVv_7d4r8qn7A&index=5&feature=plcp

      The Nazi cops understood what America really stands for.

    though I appreciate the thought behind this
    throwing one’s self in front of Murder Inc.
    without serious back-up or serious counter punch
    is serious crazy

      No need to fear TSA pederasts.  They should fear being exposed for what they are and if people stand up continuously, they might realize that we aren’t going to take this shit.  I’d like to see more pro bono lawyers representing brave journalists like this when gov’t employees want to act up, they should be sued until they learn what liberty and unalienable rights mean. 

      If you want examples, google Michael Badnarik, constitution class and pay it forward.  It might save your butt one day.

      Thanks for commenting Buzz.  I know what you are saying but we have to stand up.

    I saw this all coming 35 years ago when I got out of the USMC,it was changing and that was all gov policy and its now carried out to the civilian world.If you can’t see whats going on right in front of your face start hanging out with smarter people or get a seeing eye dog with an I.Q.

    While TSA Officers did
    take part in a Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response Team at the Chicago
    Amtrak station, it is not a TSA Officer you hear in the video talking to the
    photographer. For more information on VIPR teams, go here: http://www.tsa.gov/press/happenings/vipr_blockisland.shtm

      And we should take this on your say-so?  Because you seem to be offering exactly zero evidence (per your usual MO).
