Sam Dodson of OTN did an excellent job as a real journalist — as opposed to a corporate Mockingbird script-reader — when he went to the Detroit Metro airport and confronted the TSA on the Gestapo tactics they employ in airports in order to cow the public into submission.
The video starkly reveals how airports have become locked-down Stasi zones where passengers are followed around by uniformed agents and armed thugs with bomb-sniffing dogs if they arouse the slightest bit of suspicion.
Dodson gives these authoritarian functionaries no quarter and confronts them on their arrogant police state tactics at every turn. He refuses to turn off his cell phone camera, peppers them with questions, and repeatedly objects to their assumed authority and petty school yard bully power trips.
An excellent job. More citizen-journalists need to produce these kind of videos and become a righteous thorn in the side of the state as it continues its concerted effort to turn the nation into a police state hell hole under the pretense of protecting us from patsies and dupes the government ludicrously claims are terrorists with fizzle bombs tucked in their underwear.
