Hey guys, I have an experience regarding Homeland Security Id like to share with you all. Im not one to be a target of Big Brother or any type of hate crime regarding 'progressive politics' but I think its worth me taking the ten minutes out of my time to share.


It all started when I entered a California based airport to fly to Las Vegas. Everything seemed normal and we went through the boarding and screening without any trouble. It was when we arrived at our destination that we discovered our personal belongings had been tampered/destroyed.


Upon opening my bag to empty it out of my clothing, phone, & computer laptop I came to a grim discovery.

As soon as I opened up my laptop to my horror I realized my computer screen had been shattered. It was in a laptop case that could have taken a really high fall from a high destination. I know this couldnt have been a result of turbulence. It would seem my laptop was diliberatlely punched by somebody who worked at the airport. Homeland security???

This is where it gets weird, after going through the wreckage of a glass filled bag and glass filled clothing I found a small paper slip that describes 'Your bag & personal belongings were chosen by Homeland Security for an extended search.' WTF right????? The next thing Im going to tell you guys is that my computer beared a huge sticker which says '9/11 was an inside job.'


You all know what Im thinking, and I all know what youre thinking. I am not making any of this up there is absolutely no reason for me to. Upon the discovery of the slip and my broken screen I called the Airport back and spoke with administration about what happened. I was put on the phone with a female who was quite polite. (Unlike the people who worked Homeland Security of course!) I was describing to her what happened and she was telling me it was really odd that it happened. The words slipped off my mouth that 'I think they were offended by the sticker that was on my computer screen' she asked, 'What did it say?' I explained to her what it says and all of a sudden she just utters the words 'Oh my god.'


Now Im asking you guys, is her reaction confirmation of proof that Homeland Security can pull off their own hate crimes against U.S passengers? Or do you guys think she simply doesnt know or have any way of confirming it? Ive been thinking about reporting the incident to the wonderful Alex Jones but I want you guys two cents first.

If your story is true, then it shows what kind of SS Officers are running DHS.

Your country might as well be in ruins.

So did you take a photo of the note and damaged computer to show us.

It also might be that someone is messing with you-Someone decided to pick any person with a Laptop and do the damage and maybe they would get lucky and pick someone who has an interest in 911- In fact i think almost everyone has heard the stories and watched the Video's by now so a so called random pick is really not so random.

Any chance of you taking some photos of the broken laptop and the note and posting them here? I would also be contacting a lawyer and I would also call DHS to see if this was really them or would they do something like this.

I don't think DHS is stationed at every airport to do random checks of belongings. What's likely is someone working at the airport that saw your sticker and doesn't like 9/11 conspiracy theories, decided to destroy your laptop. By placing the note in your bag, they are illegally impersonating an agent of DHS which is a state and federal crime. I would be reporting it to DHS and the FBI.

I agree, you might need to press charges against the airport, the airline, and DHS. I would also remind you that you should NEVER check a laptop or anything else that is high value..ALWAYS carry them on the plane with you.

In the baggage areas they do have security camera's. So if your story is for real you should have reported it and demanded to see the security tapes of the bag handlers.

But if you bought the Homeland Security thing and got scared they having the last Laugh.

I totally agree with you tezzajw. There is no reason for me to make up a wild story, I for one was just planning on having a normal flight but I guess I couldnt even have that. How could somebody actually find the hate for a sticker to just damage personal belongings like that?? I mean dont they want disclosure for all those people who died on 9/11 in vain?? With no truth being brought forth??

Im beginning to think the whole airport was brainwashed.

The government often does speacial operations like this to test the resolve and monitor the total pssible actions of the victim. It's a way to measure the response of the populace when it has it's life interfered with. They know that you have posted this and are getting responses. To the degree you make waves they will determine how far they can presently intimidate the public. Now that you have been chosen for such an experiment, you should at least do a complete wipe of any of your hard drives and get some new phones. Lastly, don't talk in front of the TV because if you have an active V chip they can listen to you and see you anytime you're in view of it. Good luck. Once you return to a normal lifestyle they will stop their program on you. I suggest you do so because it will screw it up and they'll do someone else.

I hope in 2010 and 2012 we can reverse this path we have allowed ourselve to wander down. It may be the last real free vote we ever get.

I believe you 100%, and this is simply wrong.

I was made a target because of my disability, I was humiliated and singled out when they did this to me, no fault of my own they took me aside patted me down (including female areas) in front of everyone, My mother at the time had called and told them my situation they said everything would be fine and so on but when I got there I got tested for explosives and so on, I was a teen then and I try to hide my disability and I was forced to expose it in front of everyone.
I was reduced to tears.
I was a 4'11 16 year blond hair blue eyed girl, honestly not to sound any type of way but there was no reason other then my disability that made them question me.

They have no limits no respect no care in the world of a persons dignity lets alone rights, and if you don't keep your mouth shut and just let it go they just make it worse for you.

I am so sorry that you had to have your personal property violated like that, and like you said for a simple sticker yes they probably did do it just simply for the sticker alone, they are random searches and funny how it just happens to a person with that sticker?

If you speak out about it further I think it is something you should seriously think hard about and come to that conclusion on your own because by speaking out you're going to make yourself even more of a bigger target and if the things that are said about our government is true you may be risking a lot for something that may have no real effect or make things right in the end.

You have to think about a lot, peoples opinions, possible actions by the government, and so on, honestly make this choice for yourself, and please be careful.

You should also get your laptop checked out and see if there are any hidden programs like key stroke programs or strange outside connections/IP addresses.

I wish I could offer some better words for you.

I had a similiar incident last year. I had a dental laser in my suitcase. When I got my suitcase back the laser was cracked, like it had been held up high and dropped. I am sure that TSA had no idea what it was, so they destroyed it. In addition, I did not receive a notice from TSA that my baggage was gone through. Neither the airline or TSA took responsibility when I filed a claim. They pointed fingers at one another. I ate the cost of the 2,000 laser. I contacted an attorney and he told me to file in small claims court.

I have also had jewelry 'disappear' and no note from TSA that my luggage was searched. Homeland Security and the TSA are completely out of control with unchecked powers. I refuse to fly unless abasolutely necessary and my family feels the same way (even my dad and brother who are pilots). It is a degrading, exploitive and powerless experience that we should all refuse to patronize unless we have no other options. I have also had a TSA employee touch both sides of my breasts. I wanted to slap him across the face.

I've experienced a few nightmare stories myself, as I've done alot of traveling.....

However, I suggest you are sharper than that. Putting a sticker which such controversy on your laptop is just asking for trouble.
Then, the double fallacy of telling the woman on the phone why you thought (the sticker) it had something to do with it......why?

Keep a low profile.

These muscle head idiots are just looking for a reason to break your balls, and you're giving them one.

Sorry about your laptop tho....that's low.

If you believe in Karma, you'll put this behind you.

Peace.

Vegas would. It is a site of international interest - I know. I lived there for nine years. Couple that with the proximity of Area 51, Nellis AFB, and even Hoover Dam... And you have a place they watch closely.

Believe me, I have seen what's in Vegas, and it's ugly once you step out of tourist mode.

In America, we're supposed to be allowed to give all the verbal trouble we want. You certainly should'nt be allowed harass someone on that level as a retaliation against free speech.

And I couldn't agree more. It was wrong. Bottom line.

However, my point is some of these meatheads will see it, and then wanna smash your laptop becasue of it. Evidently, right?

If I was to wear a T-Shirt that reads: Fu*k the Police and went in a local precinct, or a police station what are the chances I get my ass kicked by some meathead cop? I'd say pretty good.

Dam it. It's my right to wear that shirt....

Then again, I should know better......*holding my ribcage from the pain*

FIrst of all that is NOT a hate crime. That is vandalism and if you get an attorney who can prove the chain of events either they or the airline will probably replace the computer to avoid publicity.

Second of all, don't put political slogans on your personal belongings, that calls attention to you, and yes, people will vandalize your stuff if they don't like what you are espousing. Ever see how many cars get vandalized at election time because people don't like their stickers, or have their houses egged when they have signs in front? The knowledge of Homeland Security pulling checks at airports is so well known that it sounds like you put that sticker on their hoping to cause an incident, not many people would be that indiscreet.

Yes do man it-get your claim in and at the same time try get your attorney to subpoena the baggage area security camera tapes. There should not be more than 2 hours of footage between when you checked the bag and it getting on the airplane. You might have to get a few different camera shot as you don’t know exactly where this occurred.

Then I would spread the word in the Media send the claim info to Glenn Beck, Alex Jones, CNN, Fox, Local stations. 60 Minutes, Reutes etc Whoever you can find. Someone’s looking for a story and its all really easy, search online and e-mail them.

Make the claim that Homeland security Allegedly did this as you have the note to Prove it. Home Land Security will try defend themselves and help you find the person that did it to clear their name.

Play all these people against each other-In the end you will win.

Vegas is a lousy city but the cheap buffet at the Sahara rocks. They had the best tamales I ever had when I was there eight years ago.

What are the problems you see in that city? Aside from the fact it is an overhyped, mafia-infested hellhole?

Few things tick me off more than people crying hate crime when it does not apply. Hate crimes are physical, verbal or written acts intended to kill or otherwise deprive a person of civil rights based on gender or ethnicity. Every time someone incorrectly uses that term, it undermines the intent of those laws which I am sorry to say American desperately needs.
