Outrage is building.
My niece formerly from Kodiak Alaska and now the Hawaian Islands wrote an angry letter to the TSA. She found a note saying that her bag had been searched before it was put onboard her plane. In her bag were sealed tax documents and private mail - all of which had been torn open. SS numbers and everything else could now very well be databased beyond her control.
I said hurray for you. Every complaint or phone call can be be interpolated as 1,000 letters or phone calls of similar opinion.
Everyone has to take their own respondsibility to obeject and dissent.
My wife warned that they can arrest arrest you for nothing nowadays and to be careful what you say if you do complain.
I say forget the fear factor. No one really has civil rights until they can be addressed in court anyway.
