TSA search rules changed

Remember the incident in which airport security questioned someone for carrying a lot of cash and he recorded the conversation on his iPhone? Looks like the TSA has changed its rules as a result.

The new rules, issuedin September and October, tell officers "screening may not be conducted to detect evidence of crimes unrelated to transportation security" and that large amounts of cash don't qualify as suspicious for purposes of safety.

...

That second directive tells screeners that "traveling with large amounts of currency is not illegal," and that to the extent bulk quantities of cash warrant searching, it is only to further security objectives, the ACLU said.

Steve Bierfeldt is a hero.
