Tsa looking for bitcoin
I was given the standard blue glove pat down, so was Bill, and then a second agent searched my bag because all my lapel pins looked suspicious in the x-ray machine. That was the first indication of something strange. This is, of course, absurd. They asked to search my bag again. I think what happened is that they saw my Bitcoin Not Bombs hoodie, then all the metal lapel pins, and they thought they hit the jackpot on a stockpile of Casascius coins.
For the record I was sold out of Bitcoin pins, and out of Bitcoin flyers. As soon as they discovered I was not traveling internationally they disappeared as quickly as they appeared.
Immediately afterward I made a voice recording with Bill to record all the facts as we observed them while the experience was fresh. While making that recording one of the supervisors walked through the terminal appearing to be looking for me, then a blue shirt agent was stationed out of the screening area and within eye sight of me, and two police officers wearing flak vests and side arms hung around near my gate until I left.
Which is purely an intimidation tactic. I am just amazed at some of the comments I see on these articles. My consternation is some with TSA but really ignited by these sheep minded establishment freaks that can apparently vote too? I would fund your travel and grubstake if I could afford it to a country that would appreciate your cattle like attitude.
I get the feeling you have no idea what you are talking about. You may wish to consult with an attorney. They insist on doing so anyway. IMO, your civil rights were violated because you were seized even if for mere seconds in furtherance of an objective that is outside the boundaries of a TSA checkpoint search.
Are you going to be at the Porcupine Freedom Festival in June? I keep all mine in my brain most of the time. Soon, bitcoin owners may be forced to flight only with private planes, courtesy of Virgin Airlines….
No wonder they have to resort to intimidation tactics, without them the near complete lack of understanding would show them for the fools they are. I am sure you had a bad attitude though.
I would go through TSA like a bro. They would probably buy me a drink for the trouble. Why are you sure I had a bad attitude? I frequently blog my encounters with the TSA and people often comment how good an attitude I have. It will all be ok, You all sound wired on speed, When you go through security you arent going to challenge the process, now that you know what it is if you dont like it, dont travel. People like you are why its that way. The jerk offs that are like you that were there before you?
Thats why its like that. But you are all the same. We laugh at you here and in public, I understand all this feels intrusive and might be but just so are aware bc the major premise of your video seems to be related but bitcoin addresses can be printed on physical tokens So he could have been saying one of the many pins that was in your bag could have looked like a token with a bitcoin address printed on it.
They weren't screening just anyone, they were screening someone with a bitcoin hoodie who may have had a lot of metal token shaped items in his bag Sir, during your crotch check, we noticed you have illegal contraband, fruit of the loom. Please go to the surgery room to have your fruit removed.
It is fortunate that you were doing all this smart-Alecking with TSA. The rest of us will have it much easier, thanks. Is that an unzipped. I'm gonna have to ask you to open it. Colossal ignorance of government. And liberals want more of it.
It was your Age TSA is kinda known for grouping kids. This lady conducting the interview is a retard, telling this guy that he "should be afraid. Weird, but I think this guy really made things worse than it needed to be.
Dude, take the fucking X-ray. You would be exposed to MORE radiation in flight. Data can be hidden any frickenwhere. The government needs to ban data, data is terrorism. They're not real money so why do people waste their time on this stuff. Excuse me officer, I have an I. I'm uncomfortable with being groped by some TSA fuck.. It's funny how many people don't know that there actually was a physical bitcoin back in the day.
