Lawyer Slams TSA “Counter-Terror” Bus Program

• http://www.prisonplanet.com, Paul Joseph Watson
 Criminal defense attorney Mark Bennett has slammed the Houston METRO and the TSA for a “counter-terror” exercise that involved cops and TSA agents riding buses as undercover spies, as METRO Police Department Chief Victor Rodriguez denied that random bag searches had taken place despite a post-exercise METRO press release stating bag searches had occurred.
 

As we reported last week, TSA VIPR agents and undercover police officers were placed on buses in Houston as part of a program labeled BusSafe. Their job was to to perform bag searches, watch for “suspicious activity” and interrogate passengers in order to ‘curb crime and terrorism’.

Unsurprisingly, the expensive drill didn’t turn up any terrorists, it snagged a few prostitutes and drug dealers, but given that the whole idea is to condition Americans to accept TSA goons getting in their face every time they try to travel anywhere, consider it mission accomplished.
