DHS appears poised to Arm the Transportation Security Agency TSA, in what will be remembered as one of the biggest power–grabs in law enforcement history in the U.S. State and Local Police forces will likely be demoted in their authority once this strategic move for power is complete.

The Federalization and Militarization of the Police is ongoing and escalating at such an alarming rate that even State and Local Police should fear losing their authority within their own states to this Quasi / Para Military Force of grossly unqualified agents employed by the Department of Homeland Security.

TSA Agents are not given authority to arrest and do not take an oath to Protect and Serve the people of the various states they operate in. These are basically sub–contractors that are employed by the TSA and fall under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security DHS.

More information on this alarming development will follow as it comes in. Reproduced here is the actual DHS Solicitation located on the Federal Business Opportunities – FedBizOpps.gov public site.
