I have seen some seriously stupid things in my life, but Homeland Security at the Bolivar Ferry is near the top.

» VIDEO: Homeland Security Searches Vehicles at Ferry Crossing Checkpoint Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!

I am not a fan of Infowars, but I got this link from Drudge Report. Why are they checking a highway that does not cross a border? There are probably less than a 1000 people that live on the other side of the ferry....

This is only going to get worse.

I think the HLS is covering anything into 100 miles of the border?

I guess that is one way to get a presence in half the state of Texas.... Too bad they are not looking for illegal immigrants. I guess that would be a different department.
I guess someone should take a look at the constitution. Apparently the 4th amendment has been amended.

old news, random vehicles have been pulled out of line and searched for a good while. I can't remember how long ago, I watched some uniforms pull an unremarkable new Escalade out of line and totally toss it while a family melted into the pavement.

It has been done for years. HLS used to contract with a security company to do it called Seawolf Security. They were based waay inland.

I guess terrorist would never target automibile ferrys.

Silly HLS.

What ever happened to using a vehicle X-Ray? They even make portable versions now that are set up on a semi trailer.

So this makes it okay?
