It can’t be said often enough: the TSA isn’t law enforcement. The TSA isn’t law enforcement.
This isn’t my opinion speaking; it’s a fact.
Yet the TSA has apparently started searching parked cars at the airport.
Laurie Iacuzza walked to her waiting car at the Greater Rochester International Airport after returning from a trip and that’s when she found it — a notice saying her car was inspected after she left for her flight. She said, “I was furious. They never mentioned it to me when I booked the valet or when I picked up the car or when I dropped it off.”
Iacuzza’s car was inspected by valet attendants on orders from the TSA. But why only valet parked cars? That’s what News10NBC wanted to ask the TSA director about. We reached him by phone.
But hey, they left a nice note on the dashboard!
Anyway, in the end, Iacuzza doesn’t mind:
Iacuzza said she doesn’t mind the security measure. She just wants to be told if her car is getting searched.
Oh, well, what the hell? Fourth Amendment, Schmourth Amendment. We have no 4th Amendment anymore inside the airport; so, as some of us have been saying for years now, it was only a matter of time before we didn’t have it outside as well.
Just desserts, chickens coming home to roost, and all that. And the United Sheeple of America continue to yawn.
