[quote:JasmineinNM:MV8yMzI2MzYyXzM5NjkwODA1XzQ4RjdDNjEz] It will cost FedEx and UPS a lot of money to hire people just to open and reseal packages. I wonder if they will put some kind of label on the package saying that is WAS THEM that opened the package and not someone else somewhere along the line.......... and now a bigger worry......suppose that somewhere along this line of opening and closing the packages that some spook manages to get hired in to do the job and starts planting shit in the packages and then alleges that you have committed a crime........ now with no "chain of responsibility" how could you disprove anything? This sucks in more ways than just our privacy. This opens up customers for all kinds of misdeeds being perpetrated on them along with their stuff just vanishes. Who is going to pay? NOT FEDEX or UPS..........they claim that you have to go to the shipper for resolution..... they claimed in the past that "they didn't do it". Now how are they going to be able to prove that. So there are things about this that the customer won't be able to prove and some things that the delivery company won't be able to prove. I hope that FEDEX and UPS get a set of cajones and just say FUCK NO WE WON'T DO IT. [/quote]
The Obama administration’s understanding of the Fourth Amendment — prohibiting the government from conducting unreasonable searches and seizures — leaves a lot to be desired.
The Justice Department demands that the nation’s two largest courier delivery service companies — FedEx and UPS — report on the contents of customers’ sealed packages according to WND.com.
At issue is the delivery of prescription medicines from online pharmacies to customers.
Although FedEx has a 40-year history of cooperating with authorities according to company spokesman Patrick Fitzgerald, this case is different. Moreover, criminal charges may be on their way — against the carriers.
“What is unusual and really disturbing is it became clear to us along the way that FedEx was being targeted for some level criminal activity as it relates to these medicines that are being shipped from pharmacies, and we find it to be completely absurd because it’s really not our role,” Fitzgerald said. “We have no way of knowing what is legal and not within the packages that we’re picking up and delivering in this situation.”
