Michael Yon Handcuffed At Seattle Airport For Refusing to Say How Much He Earned

“Michael Yon ……..There is some confusion about who arrested me. TSA was not involved. The Customs people (CBP) were the actors who handcuffed me.”
Milblogger and author Michael Yon was handcuffed today at the Seattle airport for not telling the Customs people his net income.
He posted this on his facebook page:
Got arrested at the Seattle airport for refusing to say how much money I make. (The uniformed ones say I was not “arrested”, but they definitely handcuffed me.) Their videos and audios should show that I was polite, but simply refused questions that had nothing to do with national security. Port authority police eve…ntually came — they were professionals — and rescued me from the border bullies.
And, here’s his follow-up post:

When they handcuffed me, I said that no country has ever treated me so badly. Not China. Not Vietnam. Not Afghanistan. Definitely not Singapore or India or Nepal or Germany, not Brunei, not Indonesia, or Malaysia, or Kuwait or Qatar or United Arab Emirates. No county has treated me with the disrespect can that can be expected from our border bullies.

Wild Thing’s comment…………
Unless it is a law how much money one can earn, it is none of their business. At this point in time, other that providing i.d. when asked, actually ordered because every thing they direct you to do is an order, you are under no obligation to tell them anything. At least as far as I know.

The Son of a Bitch Obummer would harass a fine person like Micheal Yon yet give a pass to Ragheaded terrorists of his faith, would harass this man yet allow the likes of Congress to screw the American people without using protection. The Son of a Bitch and his lackeys are a bunch of losers, and could do nothing to gain my respect.
“Never Forget the Ft. Hood Texas 14 of 11/5/09!” because Michael Yon wouldn’t!

Maybe the Customs guys were looking for a handout.
America is coming apart. Wrong is right, right is wrong. We have a muslim/Marxist as president. We let illegal aliens in, give them benefits, but harass law abiding US citizens. It’s getting bad and will get worse.

Guns & Ammo and I don’t mean the magazine.

Mark says:

Even Joan Rivers was refused a flight. Her passport said “Rivers aka, Rosenberg” so the TSA questioned that and refused to let her on the plane. How old is Joan Rivers, 80. Another case of the blind leading the blind while the real terrorists get a free pass.

Thank you for the input, I never heard of
such a thing happening before.
Thank you Mark for sharing about Joan Rivers.

Wild Thing, I think I love you. I am a 62 year old retired police officer, a father of three wonderful young men, and step father to a young lady and another wonderful son, with fabulous grandchildren, and I am married to the most wonderful woman on the planet, and with that said, I would like to say, you absolutely ROCK! I read your site and am so happy to be able to read the writings and posts of one of the greatest Americans I have ever been blessed to read. You are my hero, and I thank God for people like you.
Keep on keeping on. Our future depends on people like you.
