EXPERT: TSA PLAN TO SCRUTINIZE SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS OF TRAVELERS “DISTURBING”

Privacy expert Joe McNamee warns that a proposed plan by the TSA to scrutinize travelers’ social media posts is a “disturbing” threat to freedom of speech.

A potential change to the federal agency’s PreCheck program would involve collecting data from an individual’s blog posts and social media comments before determining whether they are a security risk. Purchase history would also potentially be one of the criteria used to determine a traveler’s threat level.

Once the measure is implemented, it wouldn’t be out of the question to see it imposed on all flyers.

McNamee, Executive Director of European Digital Rights, warned that the measure could lead to travelers self-censoring or even amending their purchase habits so as not to arouse suspicion.

“This is very disturbing from a free speech perspective,” he said. “It will be logical for anyone that is planning to rely on the TSA for any purpose to carefully self-censor any statement — or even any purchase — that could be misinterpreted and raise a flag as to their acceptability.”

“The amount of surveillance of online activities has already caused significant damage to free speech,” added McNamee, noting that the measure would also vacuum up a lot of “useless” data that wouldn’t even be pertinent to a security check...

What do they intend to do about those who do not have any social media accounts at all? Or will not appearing in social media be automatically suspect?

Given the wealth of information internet users willingly volunteer, I have zero problem with law enforcement consulting it all.

Fail.

There is no reasonable expectation of privacy when one willingly submits information to a private third party, such as an ISP.

Consequently, there is no "police state."

Do you drive a car? They are tracking our vehicles in real time.

Yup. Big Brother even wants to control your vehicle now. The NWO assholes in Europe have already passed Legislation that will allow Governments to not only have a kill-switch for your vehicle, but will also control how much fuel you'll be allowed to use. Oh, the road to Totalitarianism. Enjoy the ride ya dumb fat sheep. ;)

Big Brother thanks you for your assistance. Without dumb fat sheeple like you, he couldn't expand his Police State so rapidly and thoroughly. Good job. :thup:

I should be able to reasonably expect my information stay between me and my ISP, between me and my bank, between me and my physician, between me and my credit card holders........
Just because you find it necessary to use your information on occasion, shouldn't give any one else the privilege of using it too.
There is not a police state yet. We are setting the stage for the police state. Tracking our every move is a prerequisite. For a believer, it is the collecting of data necessary to fulfill the prophesy that no man may buy or sell without the mark.
