tsa on my subway

So, I wasn't sure where to put this, so if this is the wrong forum please move.

Anyways, I live in Pittsburgh Pa and yesterday while I was riding the T (our subway system) I noticed TSA all over the place and in uniform. This kind of upset me because it reminded me that we are becoming a police state. Now to be fair, this was the opening day of this new system called the north shore connector and maybe they were worried about a terrorist strike but my issue with this is that the tsa were armed with mace and that was it. We have 2 police forces in the city, both the Pittsburgh police and port authority police(transit system police) both who usually do a good job and both are armed with guns. Personally, I feel they should have been enough for protection, if in fact that is why they were there. So the reason that I am posting this is because this is a conspiracy website and I feel that the government is trying to get us acclimated to the intrusiveness of government control and I would like to hear other stories of tsa in common non airport areas and your opinions on why they would place tsa in a public transportation area


I did take pics on my cell of these agents but knuckle head that I am, I don't know how to post them. Sorry.

Have no fear, the SS is here. Present your right hand or forehead for scanning.

sad but true, the irony of it all is TSA are in the employ of both DHS and CIA, the latter which, both investigates - as well as coordinates - the bulk of terror incidents the world has seen in the past 10 yrs.

so at surface they are there to protect the public but under the surface, they are there to control both policing- and coordinate their own terror ops - as they see fit

Real terrorists wouldn't target transportation facilities ONLY, but the belief that they will allows this slow boil of police state conquering of America.

When random home inspections start happening, maybe people will wake up to it then, or maybe they'll just get arrested in their own homes for having their thermostat too high, and sentenced to do a few months or years of prison labor for $0.14 per hour making Kevlar gear like prisoners do around here.

Get used to it. Subways, Trains, Highways, Airports etc are all part of their scope even though most people just link them with the airports. Their mission is expanding as planned


The Transportation Security Administration is not just angering travelers at airports. The TSA also does buses, trucks, subways and trains.

Guess what? The none-too-popular agency appears to have had the same kind of unimpressive performance issues on the rails as it has in the aviation industry.

Since 2005, the TSA's Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response teams have been spot-checking for terrorism threats in the nation's massive network of highways and rail systems -- a seemingly overwhelming task.



What happened in Savannah? A Visible Intermodal Protection and Response team became far too visible.

For reasons that have never been publicly explained, a squad of VIPR agents showed up at a Savannah Amtrak station one day and literally took over without the knowledge or approval of the Amtrak Police Department.

Everyone who entered the station was thoroughly searched. It didn't seem to matter whether people were getting on trains or getting off trains, or just looking for a place to go to the bathroom.

The "rules," if there were any, seemed to be that if you entered the station, you went through a full search. If you walked around the station to get to a train or to get off a train -- quite an easy thing to do at the Savannah station -- no one bothered you. Clearly, no security issue was involved.

I hate to say it, but I think you are correct. We are losing more and more rights and freedoms every day. What I don't understand is why the american people are allowing this to happen. Maybe when people start disappearing we will wake up and fight this. I try not to be a fear monger, but on this issue I will be if needed. This is how it started in totalitarian societies in history and I'm afraid I see it happening here. What's next? Asking for papers to travel?

Nice idea, but they will set up camp on public roads eventually. We can't boycott our own cars, if we did, they'd have TSA set up check points on bike paths and trails in the woods. They aren't moving backwards, always forward rolls the wheels of tyranny.

When a real terrorist attack hits the USA you ill know it because they will not bother with the targets the CIA chooses to incite the sheeple to war, they will hit a few key points on the electrical grid and plunge the US into darkness and end eventual chaos.

In NYC they have random check points for bag checks (MTA train system) which they say is constitutional because if you refuse the bag check you can leave the station no questions asked. But if you need to travel, and there is a bag checkpoint there is a possibility they will stop you and if they do then you must comply if you want to ride the train. Another thing is in NYC the MTA is used by 3-4 million people a day and some can't escape it.

Total farce. The funny (or not so funny) thing is aside from tourist spots, the only other places that I have noticed bag checks on a regular basis are in poor, predominately minority communities. I guess it goes well with the stop and frisk quotas.

By the way I have never been stopped personally (I guess I don't fit the "part"), but if they do ask to check my bag I'll tell them no and walk a few blocks to the next train station. It's beyond absurd, and people willingly go along with it like nothing is wrong.

Plenty of gateway legislation was passed post 9/11 that opened the floodgates. Couple that with one nationwide distraction after another along with the late night passage of bills, signature statements and executive orders and poof welcome to 2012.

More distractions to come that will once again lead to more control. Look to the Occupy movement this spring to bring about more changes to our freedom.

All of that plus plenty of Vaseline and the nation won't feel a thing....

After many years of them being stationed at Airports, guaranteed they will next be at Bus-Stop and NFL games and even Grocery stores.

I thought the TSA was a horrible idea in Airports and ONLY in Airports. Now they're becoming a de-facto kind of National Police Force showing up on highways, rail platforms and subway stations near you!


If they were a bad idea at the Airport, they aren't even amusing outside it. I'm for disbanding the whole bunch of them and putting their boss, Janet, in one of the new detention centers she's overseen construction of. It seems fitting.

of course .. not enough people for them to terrorise and sexually molest at airports so they have to expand ...

lmao mace wont be much use against automatic weapons if real terrorists ever did attack ... that should give people a clue right there that the whole thing is a lie ...
