TSA groping has become normalized...
Ok, what does that mean?
It means that the public has now accepted being groped and searched, without a warrant or probable cause, in venues other than airports.
It means that the American people will allow themselves, and their children and parents, to be groped, molested, x-rayed, searched, and detained without probable cause or protest.
It means that the American public will not only allow themselves unquestionably to be stripped of their 4th amendment rights at airports, but apparently in any other venue as well.
The Transportation Security Administration will be conducting grope downs and bag searches at three different locations in Charlotte this week at the Democratic National Convention, illustrating the fact that the TSA has expanded well beyond its remit of transportation and into public venues.
The presence of the TSA at public events obviously have nothing to do with transportation... which is what the "T" in TSA stands for. The budget for the TSA is also expanding and while the population accepts more intrusive searches by this agency, and in the meantime it is certain that thousands upon thousands of unannounced checkpoints across the country will be established.

Wake Up, People!
As for me, I refuse to fly until this idiocy is ended.
This is not about safety... this is about government control.
