Officials with the Electronic Privacy Information Center appear to not be enthused about the strategy being adopted by the Transportation Security Administration to expand the reach of its famous airport pat-downs to highway checkpoints, bus stations, concerts, rodeos and other events.
Said the privacy organization Thursday, “The Transportation Security Administration has expanded its Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR) program to perform warrantless searches at various locations, including festivals, sporting events, and bus stations.”
The organization, which has fought the government over the use of invasive body scanners or intimate physical pat-downs by federal agents on privacy grounds, noted that it had prevailed in a lawsuit in 2012 that “revealed the agency’s plan to deploy body scanners outside of the airport at bus stations, train stations and elsewhere.”
Two network reports have followed up on that report.
