[quote:JadeDone:MV8yMzI2MzYyXzM5NjkyNTQ3XzYwNDQzOUUz] [quote:JasmineinNM:MV8yMzI2MzYyXzM5NjkyMTY4X0M1QzRFRTJD] [quote:JadeDone:MV8yMzI2MzYyXzM5NjkxNzg2X0FBQzczREY5] This is really an interesting thread to me. My husband works as a freight inspector for one of these companies. He has worked in this position for several years. He works in freight, not small package shipping, and he says that better than 99% of what he sees is merchandise on the way to stores or parts on the way to be manufactured. What he inspects for is matching of contents and claimed contents, primarily with companies that carry contracts with his company for deals on shipping. The primary interest is in the density of the product, how much it weighs versus how much space it takes up in a container. I asked him if he ever sees private items shipping and he told me that sometimes he'll see an order from Amazon, or someone will ship household items in a move- but it is rare. The data he collects is stored in a database but as far as he is aware, it is not shared outside of the company. They store the information so that contracts can be reviewed if the customer changes what they normally ship. Say, someone was shipping metal bottlecaps and they started producing plastic bottlecaps instead. The change in weigh of the shipment would alter the amount of cargo the shipping containers could haul. [B]I asked him what he would do if he opened a pallet of illegal drugs for instance, and he says that he would report it to the terminal manager, who would call police.[/B] [/quote] And that should be sufficient. Why does the fed need to stick their stinking noses into shipping. This is laughable to pressure FedEx and UPS like this when the .gov allows unending streaming of contraband flow across the border unabated and without penalty...in fact most like facilitating it. [/quote] Right? They are required by the constitution to not stick it in! I can't say I am surprised they are trying to though. I always wondered after 9/11 how long it would be until my husband's job became a "security" position. [/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.”
