if the ASGs think they have a legitimate need to see it; they can goto a real LEO
ASGs are REAL LEOs. They are more than real LEOs, because they don’t need probable cause to search you.
In fact I'd dearly love to see Border Services brought up on charges of accessing PHI
And how can you be allowed to have PHI on your own phone?
The only time I was sent for secondary screening, I had declared two bottles of wine. I had the good fortune to queue behind some black guy with sugar cane in his suitcase, so when it was my turn, the girl said "well, it’s okay, but next time, you’ll know that you’re just allowed one bottle"
The most trouble I ever had was when I was on the train, without a return ticket, going for a long week-end to meet a friend and drive up with him. When he saw I had more than enough cash, he told me to have a nice trip.
I once crossed along by car with 2 French citizens, and we had to go inside. Once they saw my medicare card (we didn’t need a passport back then - this was in June 2001), they totally lost interest with me, only being mildly amused when the French guys bursted out laughing at the "Are you a member of a terrorist organization" on the immigration form they had to fill
But the best was when I was regularly travelling with European diplomats with diplomatic passports, those crossings simply took no time at all.
So, after 5 years, the border agent pleads "allright, I know you’re up to something. Please, I can’t handle it anymore. What are you smuggling?"
Everytime I've flown to the States they've been interested in whether I have enough cash money for my stay.
On my very first solo trip to the US, the very inquisitive and suspicious immmigration officer became extremely friendly and wished me a nice trip once he saw that I had plenty of money for my trip
This is handy if you have multiple girlfriends (not that I even have one yet, but I am speaking hypothetically,
This goes without saying...
The point of the "vans" isn't to catch people but to intimidate people into getting a license.

The Beeb has had "TV detector vans" for generations, now, and they haven't had a single conviction of license evading solely through detector van evidence.
Besides the LOX demo and his invention of Refrigerant R-406A "AutoFrost", George was an Alpha Hardware Hacker at Purdue who presented at Usenix conferences. He got a grant to work on multiprocessing, and so he took two VAX 780's, and connected them by the backplane, creating a multiprocessor VAX. Digital Equipment liked it so much that they made a product of it, called the VAX/782. The CPU clock was 5 MHz and there were a lot of DIP-package digital logic ICs in there, with lots of space between them on the PCBs.
And bean counters are amongst the people with the least vision there is.
Hence the fuckup.
In Canada we use standardized paper ballots across the nation. They're counted manually in each poll.
Disk crisis, please clean up!
