The Fourth Amendment (Amendment IV) to the United States Constitution is the part of the Bill of Rights which guards against unreasonable searches and seizures, along with requiring any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause. It was adopted as a response to the abuse of the writ of assistance, which is a type of general search warrant, in the American Revolution. Search and arrest should be limited in scope according to specific information supplied to the issuing court, usually by a law enforcement officer, who has sworn by it.
In the mid-1960s, political scientist Hannah Arendt published a book-length study of how some of the great evils of history, such as slavery and the Holocaust, managed to occur. Her book, Eichmann in Jerusalem: A Report on the Banality of Evil, concluded that generally such crimes are not carried out by fanatics or sociopaths, but rather by ordinary people who accepted the premises of their superiors and their state and therefore do what they are told to do, and participate with the view that their actions are normal. The word “banal” is defined as “something that is trite, normal, and commonplace.”

Im sorry but Im on the side of the Nazi, the guy in the van was just making trouble for the sake of making trouble.
In Australia we have quarantine zones as well, no fruit can travel east to west or vice versa, In most places they simply have bins at borders and people are expcted to do the right thing.
In other areas where fruit farming is the major source of income and also employment they are a bit more strict.
Ive had my esky and a box of food searched once and didnt think anything of it.
That woman would have gotten into the van checked the fridge, checked the cupboard and let them go.
That driver was obviously just looking for a fight and I think that was the whole purpose of having the camera out. I think he drove up knowing exactly how it would play out so he could put it on youtube for all his crazy mates in the militia.
Seriously people, yeah some things may be a slight pain in the ass but to keep 50 000 jobs and that states fruit industry alive surely is worth it. Not everything is the government trying to deny your freedoms, its just common sense.

Ok, this is stupid. Yes, the border guard isn't the sharpest tool in the tool box, but come on. just let them search for fruit... they do it all the time, and for as long as I can remember.
