Safe Mode: On
Undercover TSA Agents To Ride City Buses Searching Bags And Questioning Passengers

A new program in Houston will place undercover TSA agents and police officers on buses whose job it will be to perform bag searches, watch for “suspicious activity” and interrogate passengers in order to ‘curb crime and terrorism’.

Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee unveiled the program, labeled Bus Safe, during a press conference on Friday. According to a Metropolitan Transit Authority of Houston (METRO) press release, agencies involved in the scheme will, “ride buses, perform random bag checks, and conduct K-9 sweeps, as well as place uniformed and plainclothes officers at Transit Centers and rail platforms to detect, prevent and address latent criminal activity or behavior.”

  • I don't understand who grants them the authority or jurisdiction to execute warrantless searches. How is anything they find even submissible as evidence?

  • Great post - Cheers!

    Yes this is absolutely unconstitutional HOWEVER what needs to be taken into consideration is who owns the buses? This is a great example to highlight how, by using public transport, your constitutional rights are eroded. Now, consider how much money is being poured into public transport throughout the entire world. In particular, western governments OWN or have nationalised RAIL. They want you out of your privately owned vehicles (where you have independent travel) and t More..

  • Is it a 'program' or an 'exercise'? I think it's GREAT, because the number of casualties a terrorist could inflict is huge...okay large....okay, limited pretty much to the number of passengers on the bus. But hey, the feds are paying for it, so every city will be standing in line for another handout.
