These are the people we’re supposed to be ok with searching our digital items without a warrant. Who can detain you for up to 8 hours without giving you a reason, a phone call, or an attorney.

An official ‘rape table would allow the TSA/CBP to openly rape citizens before they board a plane or enter the country.
…for our safety, of course.
