TSA / Government Expansion of Scanning / Radiating Citizens
NEXT: Could Outspoken Americans, e.g. writers and Bloggers, Americans that defend the Constitution be deemed “Belligerents” by U.S. Government—(repeatedly) stopped at Check-Points; searched, questioned, without probable cause or warrants—Indefinitely Detained?
TSA is establishing thousands of national Checkpoints at surface transportation locations. One can’t help recall the Nazi Military and Police established similar checkpoints—harassed, searched and delayed German travelers and repeatedly targeted persons deemed politically undesirable at roadway checkpoints, boarding and riding trains and bus stops: many targeted Citizens were intentionally delayed by Nazi authorities so they would be late or miss work; many lost their jobs. Germans without probable cause were put on (Nazi Government do not hire lists). Could today’s outspoken Americans e.g. Bloggers that defend the Constitution later be deemed “Belligerents” by U.S. Government—put on no hire lists; repeatedly stopped, searched and interrogated without probable cause; forced to submit to X-ray scans damaging their health—or Indefinitely Detained?
Had the Nazi Military / Police or Gestapo had X-ray scanners, no doubt the Nazis would have manufactured any reason or no reason to repeatedly x-ray at checkpoints, anywhere—persons the Reich deemed politically or socially undesirable, until either a targeted person was too ill to travel or dead.
One can only guess how much radiation is covertly transmitted into the bodies of Americans by U.S. Government and Police repeated scanning of private homes without warrants; Americans walking on the street; driving vehicles and “Persons of Interests”—potentially damaging their health.
