Family Fined $300 For Having Apple, Tomato, 3 Cucumbers In Backpack At Newark Liberty Airport
Good thing they didn't have walnuts.

They were told they had violated a federal crime - forgetting about an apple, a tomato and three cucumbers in their son's backpack.

Customs did say it's up to the discretion of the officer to "destroy" the product or "fine the traveler," discretion this family said was sorely missing given the Customs sheet showing the prohibited items and their $300 fine.

Why would anyone go to an airport? thats like marching in to a FEMA camp, or turning yourself in at a police station for forgetting to use your turn signal and demanding to be fined!

Did they not know we are under martial law?
