Independent Media Confronts Airport Police

Dan Dicks of Press For Truth and Ashley Jessica went to the Buffalo International airport to help raise awareness about the intrusive and invasive TSA procedures. They were immediately surrounded by members of the TSA and also the Buffalo Transit Police. Below is the video report.

One point of note is that while Dicks and Jessica did an admirable job in confronting the security theater, one thing that could have been brought up with the security police is that in a truly free society, the elimination of the TSA wouldn't mean that there would be no security against threats, but that each airline would be able to set up their own security procedures, balancing various security methods against there effectiveness---and eliminating useless security theater  A central power center limits creativity and competition, even when it comes to security measures. Limiting options and competition is a neanderthal method of operation that was instrumental in homo sapiens beating out neanderthals. We allowed trade and creativity to develop over different sectors and regions, neanderthals did not, thus they lost out in advancement (and ultimately survival), even though they had larger brains.

  1. Unbelievable. With terrorism at the rate it is today, we don't care about your rights. Hmmm. When was the last terrorist attack in America?? Let's see, 2001 9/11. And what year is it now?? 2012 and it is after 9/11. So let's do the math. 2012-2001=11 it has been more than 11 years without a terrorist attack in the US. Does that sound like a high rate of terrorism to anyone else?

    1. If you believe that it was a terrorist attack. There is too much evidence that contradicts the government narrative, such as the piloting skills needed to maneuver a plane into the Pentagon, and then to do so without wings once it "hit" power lines.

  2. Find what any people will quietly submit to and you will have found the exact measure of injustice and wrong to be imposed upon them. ---Frederick Douglas

  3. I couldn't watch all of this. This camera guy is a loser who thinks he knows everything. Contribute to society and get a real job.

  4. Ashley,
    Chop off that nasty nappy hair if you want a chance at a real journalist career.
