John W. Whitehead Rutherford Institute joins Thom Hartmann. If you thought your interaction with the TSA was over once you left the airport this weekend - think again! The TSA is expanding it's operations - so what does that mean for our privacy?? TSA Security teams are now roaming the country setting up shop at other transportation depots besides airports. Over 9,300 unannounced checkpoints were set up this year at places like train stations, subways, ferries, and other mass transit hubs - costing taxpayers 110 million bucks. So far - there's no proof that the random checkpoints are working to prevent any sort of terrorist attack - yet the TSA is asking for more money - to do even more random checkpoints across the nation. So why is the TSA trampling on the rights of Americans to be presumed innocent for just wanting to get on a bus, train, or plane?
