RANDOM SEARCHES IN NYC NOT MEANT TO KEEP YOU SAFE

Last week, once again, Americans have been targeted for random searches. This time in the NYC subways under the guise of ´the war on terrorism´ because of the recent bombings in London. Sadly, some actually believe this invasion of their unalienable rights will somehow help catch a terrorist. "It doesn´t bother me," said Davon Campbell, age 24, "I can understand why they´re doing it. It´s important." Ron Freeman, a 25 year old stockbroker who had his backpack searched said, "They should have done this a long time ago, ever since 9/11."

These are comments from a news web site of yet more Americans who falsely believe the government has the power or authority to take away their unalienable God given rights by calling them "civil liberties" and that somehow, taking away their "civil rights" will stop a bomb:

"Given that the number of people who ride subways and buses is many times those who travel by plane, this may seem like an invasion of civil liberties. But I fail to see the technical difference between surface and air mass transit with regards to random searches. The real test will be in the ability of the transit workers conducting their searches to avoid other constitutional issues as to what constitutes as random."

"I think the NYPD safety precautions are necessary. In fact, I believe that these safety precautions are not stringent enough. Instead of randomly checking people with book bag and backpacks, I submit that EVERYONE who carries any type of oversize bags or backpacks should be checked. In addition, I believe that racial profiling should be used to determine whom to search. Think about it, are you willing to risk the lives of hundred of people for the sake of not being accused of racial profiling?"

"Security will always take a back seat to convenience and public opinion. The mob will protest and the searches will stop. Then when bombs start exploding in our subways the mob will cry out for a scapegoat."

A question one should ask about this newly instituted ´random search´ exercise is why is it only for the subways of New York City? We know there are terrorist cells in such unlikely places as Lodi, California (a small rural area 40 miles south of Sacramento) and that terrorists have been flooding across the Mexican border at will. Why is there no call for Americans to be searched for Chicago´s CTA (Chicago Transit Authority) subways or the San Francisco Bay Area which offers BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) whose trains run through an under the ocean tunnel connecting Oakland to San Francisco? If this mode of transportation is such a hot target, why only the call for searches in NYC?

The answer is simple: This is just another test to see how much tryanny the American people will submit to in exchange for the illusion of safety - just like WACO. After the government used the military in violation of Posse Comitatus, gas and burned almost 100 Americans, including children to death, the sheep out in America were satisified the government did the right thing to keep them safe from the David Koresch´s of the world. If there were to be a huge blacklash - 50% of those who normally use the subway in NYC - said no way, we would see this further destruction of our rights dropped. However, as long as people will tolerate abuse in the name of ´securuty´ abuse will continue. Also, if they are so anxious to keep us safe from the terrorists, then why aren´t they securing the borders? The whole thing is a scam.
