    Keep moving, nothing to see here............

    Lorie Dankers, TSA, also says this is part of VIPR, Visible Intermodal Prevention Response, to deter riders from doing harm.

    "If you go to New York City, you see VIPR teams every day," Dankers added. She continued, "It's not something for people to be alarmed about. It's a very common thing for people to see to deter them from doing harm."

    This is a foothold operation. Just like it is everywhere that VIPR operates. For a federal occupation force and the martial law authorized in the NDAA of 2012.

    The excuse of course will be the bomb planted there last year.

    I don't believe that one sees VIPR teams every day in NYC.

    We've always had VIPR teams.

    It IS something for people to be alarmed about.

    The sight of government thugs "deterring" people, even from doing harm, is always cause for alarm in any (ostensibly-)free society.

    Well, no, not everyone sees them every day, but that's just because there are 8 million people in New York and only a few hundred VIPRs. They do conduct "random" unwarranted searches in the subway all the time. So those people who go through those subway stations at those times see them. The rest of us don't.
