Tennessee is the first state to have TSA agents on the highway system. They are now working with the Tennessee department of transportation to perform road inspections in the name of “public saftey.”
They term the inspections the VIPR program (Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response).
In perhaps the scariest line in the article, Rudy Gonzales, a early participant in the program said this is “Not only truck drivers, but cars, everybody should be aware of what’s going on, on the road.”
The days of being innocent until proven guilty are over. You are now a subject who has “privileges” and not “rights.” Welcome to the police state.
