** Detaining people simply because they can. The TSA detains people at whim. This is unlawful detention.
Tell the TSA you’ve had enough!
** Searching for or questioning passengers about anything other than WEI — weapons, explosives, and incendiaries — is expressly forbidden by law. The TSA is not allowed to search for or question you about money, drugs, immigration papers, or anything else. These are illegal searches.
** Groping people’s genitals, including directly on the skin.
All of these TSA actions and others are heightening fear, promoting acceptance of racial profiling, and functioning in sync with a foreign policy that generates hatred, under the mistaken belief that giving up our rights will make us safe.
