We don't have to imagine it. DHS and its disgusting VIPR operation has struck again!
This country is so screwed.
It is shocking to me how far, how fast this stuff is getting.
I mean, it's turned into an avalanche.
And still people don't believe it's going on. WTF?
I'm wondering what the limitations of inspection are for commercial trucks. Is probable cause required before a trucker has to open up the box?
The trucking industry better step up and stand their ground before getting stopped anywhere, anytime becomes the new norm.
I hope there are some repercussions for this abuse:
How many innocent people lost their jobs or were seriously disciplined for being late to work because of this?
Sieg, heil! When are Americans going to put an end to these totalitarian displays?
Locally the F-18 crash seems to have stolen all the media attention, understandably ...
Now the conspiracy theorists might claim that DHS arranged that crash to get themselves out of the hot seat for this latest VIPR fiasco.
Perhaps the accidents victims should sue DHS, TSA and VDOT for their damages.
Oh my. What ineptitude. Thanks for the link
In the base post: DHS and its disgusting VIPR operation has struck again!
All info in this thread is from that article. I haven't had time to look for anything else.
Claims the traffic accidents were unrelated ...
Richmond Dispatch: Homeland Security drill, traffic foul Hampton Roads commute
Yeah, right. Must be a institutional practice to lie even when there is video and eyewitness evidence to the contrary.
The DOT already does truck inspections, so the TSA's VIPR teams are riding in on the coattails. After the show of force farce in ATL recently I did on search on a few OTR driver chatboards to see if this subject came up, but didn't really find anything.
Here's something though regarding DOT inspections.
ever notice that TSA pulls these stunts in states that have draconian gun laws? They dont pull it say in Texas where a trucker would air out a (expletive deleted) for sticking there nose where it doesnt belong.
I call Bull on them saying its unrelated to their farcial stunt
People can carry guns in Virginia. And do. Same with Tennessee. Same with Kentucky. Same with Florida. Same with Georgia. All places where VIPR actions have taken place.
True, but Texans tend to use them, not just carry them.
Ya know, you guys can joke all you want about shooting federal agents -- though why you do this on a public forum is beyond me -- but you know damn well that the minute someone does it, that person will have the weight of the entire national security state down on his head. I don't know why you think this is a solution.
Oh, lighten up, will ya?!?
You're allowed to shoot them in self-defense. That's why there were no murder convictions at either Ruby Ridge or Waco.
People need to remember that we have Second Amendment to protect us from the government.
