The VIPR swarm by Homeland Security's TSA at a Tampa bus station last Wednesday was just one of over 8,000 (in addition to airports) security patdowns and searches of US citizens going about their own business within their own country.
And more than 300 law enforcement and military personnel swept through a 100-mile stretch of the Ohio Valley examining the area’s industrial infrastructure, the Charleston Gazette reported.
Federal air marshals, the Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Coast Guard, the FBI, the Office of Homeland Security and two dozen other federal, state and local agencies teamed up to scour the state’s roads, bridges, water supply and transit centers under the TSA’s leadership.

Shades of jack-booted Nazis, will we continue to quietly submit?
