How the Budget Battle Has Endangered Law Enforcement and the Public

Since January 1 of this year over 90 local, state and federal law enforcement officers and special agents have been killed.

A war has been declared on cops by radical political groups, violent loners and organized crime gangs. The general public is not aware of this problem but I am.

TSA WARNS AIRLINES OF EXPLOSIVE IMPLANTS IN PEOPLE’S BODIES

By Alan Levin, USA TODAY

The Transportation Security Administration on Wednesday urged foreign security agencies to ramp up security after receiving intelligence reports that terrorists might try to surgically implant explosives in the bodies of suicide bombers.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said the intelligence that led to the warning “does not relate to an imminent or specific threat,” but the TSA issued a statement saying that travelers heading to the U.S. from foreign nations may notice screeners taking additional protections.

“Measures may include interaction with passengers, in addition to the use of other screening methods such as pat-downs and the use of enhanced tools and technologies,” TSA spokesman Nicholas Kimball said.
