TSA sitting break

I thought this was a funny enough picture to snap with my iPhone. TSA taking a break. Tu lo mereces, as they say in funny talk. But what wasn't funny was the adrenaline rush I got taking the photo, wondering if I was gonna be shaken down or beat down or cited under meaningless codes in the name of homeland security. I've seen enough pathetic police action in the news to know that the authorities like to invent laws regarding camera usage around the authorities. The feeling I got suggested a lot about where our government's positioned itself in regards to security. Surveillance by the citizenry is discouraged or outlawed, while surveillance of the citizenry is mandatory. That sounds like a police state to me.
