This is happening in my area now too, and not by the TSA.
It all started with so called "DUI Checkpoints" that occurred usually on weekend evenings, resulting in thousands of arrests and really not
deterring people from drinking and driving, just making more money for the govt.
Then they started doing random "Drivers License Checkpoints" and these could occur any place, any time, and were extremely frustrating because if
you were in a rush for something, you now had to sit through an hour of a line of cars all one by one going through. God forbid you decided you dont
want to deal with it and turn around, they have motorcycle cops anticipating this, and they pull you over for no reason just to see why you didnt want
to go through the checkpoint.
Now, on the freeway even, I have sat for HOURS in traffic barely moving, thinking it was some horrendous accident, only to finally roll up to the
Border Patrol and ICE check point on a major freeway, stopping every car and inspecting for illegals, drugs, etc.... I was sooooo pissed. Dont get me
wrong, if you break the law, you must reap what you sow, but I thought we were protected against unreasonable detainment, search and seizure???!?!?
