    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    It appears to be educational.

    Martinez-Fuerte held that internal checkpoints were
    considered to be a functional equivalent of a border crossing only
    if the government could prove with reasonable certainty that
    traffic passing through was international in character and would be
    comprised of only a “negligible number of domestic travelers.”

    The Border Patrol’s Inspector’s Field Manual governing internal
    checkpoints has been public information since 2008, thanks to a
    successful FOIA request from immigration attorney Charles M.
    Miller. According to Section 18.7 of the manual, before an
    inspector may constitutionally detain a traveler at a non-entry
    checkpoint, the inspector “must have reasonable suspicion that the
    person is an alien and is illegally in the United States.” The
    manual goes on to say: “This higher degree of suspicion arises
    generally in questioning persons encountered in and around the port
    who are awaiting persons referred to secondary. This suspicion is
    based on questioning of alienage alone and also involves specific
    articulable facts, such as particular characteristics or
    circumstances which the inspector can describe in words.”

    If, according to the CBP’s guidelines, inspectors shall not
    indefinitely detain a traveler without at least reasonable
    suspicion, the collection of videos online clearly shows agents
    breaking their own rules.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.

    Good find!

    I'll be sending the link out. Even if the cites are made up, it still gets you thinking.
    I carry to defend my loved ones; Desensitizing and educating are secondary & tertiary reasons. Anything else is unintended.

    “Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.” - Frederic Bastiat
