To whom it may concern:
I am inquiring as to the official MSP policy regarding the searching/inspection of bags, purses, and backpacks during the annual Labor Day Mackinaw Bridge walk. Specifically, I am searching for answers to the following questions:
Were these inspections/searches voluntary, or mandatory? Did citizens have the option to not consent to a search of their personal items, including bags, backpacks, and purses? If a citizen did not consent to be searched, were they allowed to pass the checkpoint and go about their business?
If searches are conducted during the 2014 bridge walk, will the policy be the same?
Thank you for your time in reading, researching, and responding to these questions. If this is not the correct department to answer these questions, can you please forward this letter to the appropriate person? A response can be mailed to the address below, or e-mailed to: myemailhere...
Can you kindly include your e-mail address in your response.
