Video: TSA To Search Bags, Question Passengers On Houston Buses

Feds to watch for suspicious activity, pre-crime behavior

A new program in Houston will place undercover TSA agents and police officers on buses whose job it will be to perform bag searches, watch for “suspicious activity” and interrogate passengers in order to ‘curb crime and terrorism’.

Democratic Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee unveiled the program, labeled Bus Safe, during a press conference on Friday. According to a Metropolitan Transit Authority of Houston (METRO) press release, agencies involved in the scheme will, “ride buses, perform random bag checks, and conduct K-9 sweeps, as well as place uniformed and plainclothes officers at Transit Centers and rail platforms to detect, prevent and address latent criminal activity or behavior.”
“While local law enforcement agencies focus on overall safety measures noted above, representatives with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will also be on hand, lending their counter-terrorism expertise and support during the exercise,” states the press release.

“If you think you’re going to be a bad actor on buses, get ready. You are going to have a short-lived time frame,” Jackson Lee said during the press conference. The Congresswoman is a staunch advocate of the TSA, having recently chastised the passage of a new law that allows airports to evict TSA agents and replace them with private screeners by claiming it would lead to a new 9/11-style attack.

Boy are they ever!

Next to Obama, the only other politician that makes me I'll to my stomach when words are uttered out of their mouths.

If Sheila Jackson Lee ever leaves Congress

She will be a natural at the TSA scanner job. She's protecting her options for a second career.

Is the only protection you need. Get your conceal and carry permit, or a good taser.

43% of women carry or own a firearm. That's a lot.

If you are worried about RAPE, get as far of the TSA as possible.

Everyday something ridiculous bill or law gets passed I can't keep up.

I Don't Like This Woman At All!!..SHE IS EVIL!

Years ago, I thought Sheila Jackson Lee was a traditional democrat with civil libertarian tendencies, like many others were in the past. However, when i found out that her backround was in law; a practicing attorney and that she and Sonny Bono were working on something really big..[ A skiing accident killed Bono two weeks before the opening of said investigation..] Sheila Jackson Lee who apparently was going to be a major part in this investigation, all of a sudden put the kabash of the whole thing. She went for a walk with FED Chairman Greenspan one day and the investigation, which was going to be headed by Bono was suddenly, with no warning,abruptly ended...Was Lee threatened by the FED or paid off? I do not know. I suspect she more than likely compromised in some way,or blackmailed, or threatened. Apparently, Lee will do whatever her task masters at the FED tell her...Expect more encroachments like this from her in the future.. God help us!

Sheila Jackson lee must be targeted for removal ASAP..She is "PURE EVIL" in my book..Get rid of her!

They do it all of the time

Nothing new, resistance is futile (jk). TSA VIPER goons will soon be in your neighborhood.

Enjoy life and all wonders within. Wars on Drugs before declaration. Poor but freedom was near. Comedies of the man who used to toss joints to the crowd like it was legal. Let's play Paperball for Ron Paul: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydp2qMyVkbo

This is just what Houston needs

more government.

Planet Houston has no "Zoning" regulations.

"Presumed Guilt"...our new motto.

Did you hear the one interviewee? He said there are lots of bad actors on the buses, so this is a good thing, to protect the people. Sadly, that is the attitude of the majority, and why they get away with it.

Undo what Wilson did

Mars..Moon...honest mistake?

I think NOT! Haha, that is great, but this one still takes the cake. Good ol' Hank Johnson.

OMG too funny! Another one needs to get the boot!
