(Video) SHOCKING! Amtrak Police Confronts and Threatens JN Reporter For Filming TSA at Chicago's Union Station

Evidently, TSA isn’t looking for press coverage during its roll out of checkpoints at train stations across the nation.

Citizen journalist Julio Rausseo, a roaming correspondent for WeAreChange.org, was labeled a “terrorist” and threatened with arrest for filming a TSA checkpoint at the Union train station in Chicago.

OMG, it pains me to listen to

OMG, it pains me to listen to that TSA clown. Where do they find these people? Greeters at Walmart have more on the ball than that.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Chicago Union Station is run by Amtrak which is a publically owned entity ... it is not a private facility that TSA agent is a hostile liar ... the public has every right to film in there.

Yeah, that's what I thought.

Yeah, that's what I thought. Those TSA clowns are dumb clucks.

Somebody else needs to be videotaping this confrontation.

And somebody needs to be videotaping the person videotaping the guy in this confrontation. There are more of us than there are of them.
Let's back each other up.

Notice that another person taped Buehler recording the harassment.
Well done Buehler. Well done person across the street. Well done video guy at Chicago Union Station. (Buehler's a Paulite, by the way.)

Remember the stormtroopers

Remember the stormtroopers from Star Wars?

This federal "cop" (who seems to have an IQ of about 15) does not understand the First Amendment...or the Constitution.

"I get my money from the Federal Government."...he says.

DUH. Then he gets it from the taxpayer.

In other words, he works for us...and not vice versa.

I can't figure out which is worse: That this innocent guy was being harassed, or having to listen to this government agent, talk.

You decide.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

I'd have asked that public servant

if the person that filmed the Rodney King beating should have been required to request a permit from LAPD before being allowed to record that event?

I wondered why not many comments on this...

then it donned on me that there is so much of this crap going on that it is actually tiring patriots out. The frustration, aggravation, and outrage at the TSA and this facist, tyrannical government has got the people so close to the edge that it won't take too much more pushing until enough becomes truly enough...Just my two cents.

"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves." William Pitt in the House of Commons November 18, 1783

Naw. . .not tired. . .

. . .this just adds another log to fuel the fire.

I've got your two cents and up you two. ;)

“It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie...the greatest enemy of the State.” ~Joseph Goebbels

holy scheisse!

I could not watch the whole thing without cursing, out loud, like every 5seconds!

first the idiot admits it's a PRIVATE facility, which if the 'justice' system actually worked, would immediately allow a suit to go forth barring ANY Fed or local govt THUG from even stepping in the space to 'patrol' it. Then the moron wants a "permit" to talk and film??

It's like what moron (or tyrant) runs seminars that 'train' these mindless fascist bozos?

We as free citizenry are not dealing with humans. We're literally dealing with synthetic, plastic sacks/vessels full of decrepit, decaying, cesspool of rotting molecules that absorbed some a-hole's seminar on some 'legalese' guidebooks.

Even with lawyers, they only 'believe' what they were told to believe in school, as if our rights are dependent on whatever publisher's X edition printing of book Y, propagated by 'legal scholar' Z.

Literally, we're going up against textbook regurgitators.

just how F'd up is that?

The guy is away too

The guy is away too argumentative... He keeps saying he wants to listen, but then he argues without them finishing. We all know these guys are asses... but arguing with them?
