Yesterday a multi-agency "strike force" descended on Connelly Pier in Boston to "help enhance the safe movement of cargo moving through the port"
The joint operation's goal was to facilitate commerce, blah, blah, blah, "maintain each participating agencies' regulatory presence" hmmmm
It appears they were stopping trucks and checking them and asking the drivers, "SHOW ME YOUR PAPAERS!"
Hows this for a list of participating alphabet agencies?
Customs and Border Protection
Massachusetts State Police
National Transportation Systems Center
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration
Federal Rail Administration
CSX Corporation Police
They all need practice for the upcoming martial law.

Your tax dollars at work
The weather is nice. Here they had a big parade of force on the highway coming into work on Wednesday morning. Pulling over just about every big rig for inspection. Motorcycle cops everywhere running radar and pulling people over.
Best time to speed is in shitty weather.
