    With the steady erosion of any form of civil rights in the U.S. I can assure you this will not be an unusual occurrence. This is all taking place under the guise of ‘national security‘.  It seems to be a catchphrase for any number of abuses of the civil liberties Americans used to enjoy and were entitled to.
