4 Arrested After Suspicious Incident At DIA

DENVER (CBS4) – Four people were arrested after a suspicious incident at Denver International Airport.

The incident happened Saturday morning at the south end security checkpoint. Airport personnel noticed someone videotaping the security lines. Police then confronted the person with the camera and the three people in line who were being taped. Two of those people did not have IDs or boarding passes.

Police arrested the man with the camera and the three people in line. Police say they don’t know what the group was doing. They were arrested on suspicion of interfering with a transportation facility.

Security was stopped for a few minutes and police conducted a security sweep but didn’t find any problems.

    Were they middle-aged white people or senior citizens on an outing from their nursing home? Maybe they looked like muslims and we cannot hurt their feelings by describing them. Typical Democrat liberal garbage!

    • WAP

      And how do Muslims look like Mr. informed conservative?
      Do you know that there are Chinese Muslims, Europeans Muslims ( white with colored eyes) and black Muslims ? Do you know that the last wannabe Airplane bomber in Detroit look exactely like Juan Williams as he was from Africa?

      • Dave

        Dude (or Dudette), seriously.. the Detroit Christmas Day bomber-wannabe looks NOTHING like Juan Williams. So now you are doing exactly what you’re criticising the other person of doing. They all look alike, huh? Give it a rest.

      Now Rufus, just because there has never ever been an attempted hihacking by a little old white lady doesn’t mean it couldn’t happen. You must be one of those right wingers clinging to a gun and a bible.

    • John Connor

      Please stand up for freedom and help put a end to this police state we live in. The TSA agents are not groping your sons and daughters to protect you. They are groping your family members and loved ones because the goverment considers average citizens as the threat and they want to show you who is boss. I do not think the TSA agents have caught one terrorist since they started groping people. I think the only people they have caught are normal citizens who are protesting about the loss of there freedoms. Is America still trying to build a free society? Or are we trying to turn the whole country into a prison so that we only have the illusion of being free. We are losing the most imoportant freedom of all and that is the ability to stop our own goverment from having complete control over us.

      • Jacob

        I have lived in Multiple Police states and feel safer reporting problems to the Police in China then in the US. They walk softly and unless you are offending someone in power they do not bug you because they think maybe you know someone who is more powerful then their boss. Here the Police say they are Authorities (they are public servants unless this is an authoritarian nation). They make up laws without any respect for anyone and they make up laws on any given day to hold people illegally. After 5 years in other countries that are quote police states I have learned I am safer in them then here. At least there the rules are clear and as long as you do not cause trouble the authorities do not wish to tell any of the higher authorities about a small local problem so they let them slip. Here the Authorities (who use to be public servants) harass and intimidate people they don’t know make up laws that do not exists and test there limits or authority because they feel safe in there job and no chance of them loosing their job because of their low quality illegal work exists so they are free range thugs who wish they where on a SWAT team running about making up laws.

        I would rather report a theft in CHina to the Chinese police any day then the US police. You Sir are nuts.

      • Pilot.Dave

        Rod Anders may have lived in a police state, but they typically don’t go from Land of the Free to Stalin’s back yard over night…. Right Ron ? So, this is a number of steps down that path.

      • Scooby

        Rod, you said you lived in a police state…what we are seeing here is the beginning of a slide to that same end result. This may not look like what you experienced, but once people acquiesce to the government taking away freedoms, one by one, eventually we will not recognize the country we call United States of America.

        I agree with John. Fight this, and if it means not flying, so be it. The airlines won’t begin protesting what TSA is doing until their pocketbooks are hit.

      • DTJ

        There is no ‘right’ to travel by commercial airline. Those that CHOOSE to use commercial airlines, have an expectation of enhanced security in this day and age, not just for personal safety, but for economic safety. I want my fellow passengers screened, and I am sure they want to know that I have been screened.

      • Terminator

        Resistance is futile human, submit to your new TSA overlords!!



      • Rod Anders

        I have lived in a police state. You have absolutely NO IDEA what a police state is, or is like.

      • John

        Well Rod Anders it seems like you didn’t care for the police state you lived in, and you moved to America. And since you didn’t like the police state you lived in you must understand why we do not want a police state in America. So if we both want America to be the complete opposite of the police state you came from then you have to stand up for more freedom rather then less freedom. We do not want to live in a country that is only half as bad as where you came from. We want to live in a free country so that would be the complete opposite of the police state your from. Do i really need to explain to someone like you after what you have experienced the importance of stoping the first sign of wrong doing before it becomes complete corruption that is irreversable. We do not need someone to tell us that in North Korea it is so bad that we should be ok with small amounts of freedoms being taken from us, because after all its not as bad as North Korea. No we want to be the shining light the bekon of hope. In other words we don’t give up on a complete free society just because you have seen worse or it could be worse etc etc. Mark my words at the rate we are going 10 years from now we will all have to revolt with pitch forks in hand or we will live a life similar to the place you lived before coming to what you hoped was the most free society on the face of the planet.

      • Gary

        To DTJ and anyone else who says there is no “right” to air travel. I refer you to Federal law which establishes a right to air travel under:

        See 49 U.S.C. § 40103 : US Code – Section 40103: Sovereignty and use of airspace, section (a)(2): “A citizen of the United States has a public right of transit through the navigable airspace.”

        US Courts have held that a citizen has the right to freely travel between the the 50 states and Internationally. The vehicle or means to travel is left up to the person traveling.

      • Artur Jose

        I recently worked as an aid worker in Cuba for several years and can tell you that America has become much, much worse than Cuba was like in the 1990’s. There’s not much worry about “security” in Cuba and they don’t suspect that every one of their citizens and every visitor / foreign resident is a terrorist like they do here in America. I am proceeding to move back to my home country, Portugal, where people do not push a “panic button” every time they see a camera, or some birdwatcher with binoculars. And everyone in my home country knows that bin Laden had nothing to do with 911.

      • Gazelle

        John, I too come from a ‘police state’ and so was very disappointed to discover a police force (in the US) that is so ready with a pair of cuffs for what at best should be a civil case. I say ‘at best’ because in so many cases I have either witnessed or read about, and similar to judges findings in a lawsuit, a lot of this seems to be about police and judges taking the law into their own hands to ‘right the wrongs of the past’ by making criminals of unsuspecting law-abiding citizens. While I certainly appreciate your concern about what is going on with enforcement agencies and the law courts this is very different from a ‘police state’ where you know exactly what you can be arrested for. In the police state where I lived I have informed enforcement agencies of my rights (as they existed in that country) and they have honored them, but what would happen to me if I informed TSA of my rights under the 4th Amendment? What we have here are enforcement agencies that are out of control with no clear purpose. Anyone who thinks all this groping and naked body scanning is keeping us safe from terrorism is far more scary than the terrorist because we know what the terrorist wants to do and there is an intelligent way to lessen the threat but we have no idea what the idiots who think we need to be groped and scanned are going to come up with next or what they are going to charge us with once they have arrested us. Holding cells full of innocent people whilst the terrorist roams free?? It is time to do something about this Orwellian state.

    • preston

      arrested for “suspicion of interfering with a transportation facility” now thats scary

      • Tom Leone

        “suspicion of interfering with a transportation facility” What a laugh, Are they making this stuff up as they go!!!

      • Gazelle

        Great – arresting TSA agents for interfering with (groping) innocent taxpayers doesn’t seem to be an offense. Love Navy Buckeye’s response.

      • Jay Cunnington

        Arrested, but not charged with “suspicion”. I’m guessing this was an impromptu TSA test by some vigilant(e?) citizens.

      • Navy Buckeye

        I thought the same thing Preston. Where is that one in the law books? I would like to arrest the politicians who make these laws for “suspicion of interfering with the economy and stealing my money”

      • Ron Langevin

        I doubt if suspicion enters into it. They da.. sure are!!!……..and should be arrested.

      • Amy

        How were they “interfering” by simply video taping?

    • kats

      100% nailed it. But hey, as long as Janet darling continues to profile white gramma’s the media can put out no news garbage like this to make leftists feel safe.

    • Wingless

      Republicans are the reason this country is in the shape it is. Stop blaming the Dems on everything!

      • kellee

        This is not a problem of you versus me or me versus you. It is not a problem created by the average democrat, republican, independent, libertarian or constitutionalist. This is something our politicians have created. ALL of them. We need to stop fighting with each other and focus our attention on them. We’re so distracted fighting their battles for them with our fellow citizen instead of working together to hold them accountable for their actions. If they refuse to give themselves term limits, we MUST make a commitment to each other to vote them out after 8 to 12 years. No excuses. If they say they will do something & do the opposite. Vote them out. No 2nd chances. They ALL continue to do this because we ALL allow them to do this. Stop allowing them to do this to us. Most people don’t really know their representatives & senators. They see edited interviews & controlled campaign commercials & speeches. Stop trusting in the dirty politicians so much & start trusting in each other, no matter how eloquently they may speak, no matter how much butt kissing it appears they can do over the air waves. Over the past 50 to 100 years our country has started going down hill & at a much quicker speed these days. Both sides have had their moments to shine & here we are so angry with the situation that we are arguing with each other & calling each other names & generally being so hateful to each other when it is our politicians that deserve to be held accountable. Let’s hold them accountable, no matter how smooth talking they can be.

      • Diamondback

        Here, here!

      • Dimslie

        Yeah? How do you come by that idea? We wouldn’t even have the terrorists over here if the Dims hadn’t changed our immigration laws in the mid ’60’s. They were warned even then but, typical Dims, they were on a roll with “improving our society” and no nutty idea was going to be wasted.

      • Jorge

        What BS is this?

        Are Republicans the ones that wanted poor people to have homes they couldn’t afford? It was Democrats starting with Carter that implemented these policies and it was the second largest group of Democrat Party financial supporters after Trial Lawyers and Unions…fat cat Wall Street types who benefited from the ridiculous lending policies promulgated by Senator Dodd and Representative Franks. President Bush was warning about the impending catastrophe in the housing and banking sectors and problems with the GSEs (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) from the time of his first Budget proposal at the end of 2001 throughout his Presidency until it was too late.

        In fact at the 2004 Mortgage Banker’s Association Conference, Barney Franks in a speech said that “there was nothing wrong with the Mortgage and Housing Industries and that Bush was using fear to restrict home purchasing by the poor (see American Banker Magazine issue 4/21/04).

        Most of our problems are a direct result of Democrat policies.

Try looking at the bigger picture as an individual – you know, the picture beyond the opinions of everybody else, or what you might even call reality? – and you’ll see they both have the same goals in mind these days: It’s all bigger government. It’s all “Empirical America.” It’s all a machine that can only keep itself running by using you as its fuel. These parties don’t support or represent “us,” are you kidding me? To both of these parties, you are just a number and statistic.

        And Dems took over congress in 2006. That’s five years. No matter how much control and power the dems have, they will NEVER take responsibility for their failed and intrusive policies. Never.

        Or could it be that they were Americans that still have some respect for the rule of law and the fourth amendment?

I postulate that your fear is misplaced.

      • PabloKoh

        Doubt they were from the religion of peace. I am thinking they are feedom loving patriots. They want to be prosecuted for videotaping in a public place, so that the Supreme Court can clarify that it is a First Amendment right to videotape TSA officers fonding little girls and boys in public. A Supreme Court ruling may finally stop the men with guns from kidnapping peaceful videographers, holding them in cages and finally releasing them with no criminal charges. The men with guns know they can not get a conviction, but they use arrest as a punishment. WE WILL RECORD!

        All the while the infamous painting of a nazi soldier lording over the holocaust stands by.

If ANYONE here thinks I’m joking google image search dia nazi mural. The entire airport is FILLED with shocking masonic and esoteric symbols. I was particularly disgusted by the news when they “disproved the conspiracies” of anything going on there. They were driven around in a golf cart while employees of the airport mocked the idea and ignored the elephants in the room.

    Since when is “suspicion of interfering with a transportation facility” a crime?

    • Bob W

      It’s not a crime, but as long as the TSA can detain someone for no good reason, that’s enough to scare them into refraining from what they legally have the right to do. It’s kind of like telling your local public school administration they can’t give your kid a flu shot, but they give it to your kid anyway and later say “Sorry, we must have lost the paperwork.” I think martial law (via the Patriot Act, which Obama extended) has secretly been declared and most people don’t know it yet.

      Suspicion is not a conviction…but a cause for arrest. If there is any crime on those lines at airports it’s the TSA molesting children.

        Amen, didn’t they just recently arrest a TSA agent for being a pedophile? I thought it was around 2 months ago. I’m beginning to think all the pedos are gonna apply for that job now that they get to feel up the little kids.

        Sick b@ast@rds.

    • FreedomHasSomeRules

      Constitutionalist, you’re right, it shouldn’t be a crime, anyone, anytime anywhere should be able to film anything on anyone’s property whenever they want. So, anyone should be able to stand on your front door, record you when you come out, follow you to work, record you at work, follow you home, record you at home, peer inside your windows..record.. Are you getting the picture.
      Hey, live with your freedom a bit and appreciate it, but let’s not overdoe it. I’m glad these people we’re found out and/or confronted or apprehended, or are you suggesting anyone without ID or a boarding pass should be able to walk our airports whenever they want? (Notice I didn’t mention anything about who it was, white, black, yellow, muslim, whatever.. I don’t care and neither should you).

      • shaun

        I like how your sound like you aren’t discriminating the “races” at the end of your rant! I also like how you assume that “muslim” is a race when you lump it in there with skin colors. I’m sure you are another proud gradjee-hate of our public school system. Keep up the “not caring”

      • ms

        @FreedomHasSomeRules: Unlike many of the examples you cite, this airport is a public venue. You do realize that anyone can enter a public airport terminal and stand in a line without having an ID or a boarding pass, don’t you? Whether you then make it past concourse security is another matter.

        You should also realize that there is no reasonable expectation of not being videotaped while standing in the security line in the airport terminal.

        Are you getting the picture?

      • Robrt

        A public airport is just that, a public place.
        Except for the areas around the planes, anyone cam walk the concourse. It is called freedom, maybe you’ve heard that word?

      • Joe

        Theres a differance between private property and a public place an airport being public and your home being private.

      • RufusVonDufus

        MrSpkr, you’re right, they should have simply shot them!

        To answer your question is. We are being put on “film” all the time. Look around you. Look on top of the street lights, highway signs, supermarket ceilings, banks, ect. I guess it just depends on who is holding the camera.Right.
        P.S.Our founding fathers did not come here for “bit of freedom”

        When I was a kid we used to go to the airport and watch the planes land and take off. I didn’t even have any ID yet. But now because you sheeple that cower in fear every time the corporate owned media tells you to we cannot do that anymore. Its always been illegal to take photos of people that do not want their photos taken unless they are public, especially on their own property. So please take your sarcasm and dis-info somewhere else. The Denver airport was paid for with our taxes and it is public owned.

      • Don

        Except that we pay the salaries of the TSA…therefore, they work for US….thus, we should be able to record/monitor their conduct.

      • MrSpkr

        Umm, I suppose people could show up on Constitutionalist’s doorstep — but as soon as he asked them to leave, they would be compelled to do so as his residence is private property. Ditto with his office. The Denver airport, on the other hand, is open to public access. So long as the people doing the filiming were doing it from a public location, I don’t see the crime here.

      • JSmithy

        @MrSpkr: You’re wrong… the Denver Airpoort is private property.

      • FreedomHasSomeRules

        MrSpkr (below) You’re wrong on this, this is state/federal property, you can be detained and/or trespassed whenever they see fit… Sorry, get over yourself, you’re not that important. If you want to do suspicious activity on this kind of land, where states and federal exercise transportation rules, you better be able to take the consequences… again, you’re wrong, sorry to say.

      • Cavity Sir

        Just squeeze their nutsacks to check for WMDs, and send them on their way. Molestation is freedom!

        Right on “Freedom has some rules”. Liberals will never understand OR CARE until something bad happens to THEM. I agree with everything you said.

      • Feste Ainoriba

        The TSA doesn’t want people recording them as they sexually molest people. It is simply too embarrassing.

        We should be able to record any official act that is not classified. Government needs to be accountable to the people: not vice versa.

      • wddb

        Stalking an individual is hardly an analogy.

        Filming me at my front door lol My property is private so you cant. filming me in line at an airport is ok just dont make any money off of it. I guess you want people to not film in line at Disney world either lol What a crime that is. Your example was of a stalker not a person filming in line big differece go back to Russia

      • Jim Kress

        It’s a PUBLIC facility. Your house is not. The government has no legitimate expectation of privacy. Their action has no basis in law and is int itself illegal. The people arrested should file charges for kidnapping, false imprisonment, and malicious prosecution.

      • James Fischer

        It might be federal/state property but who owns federal/state property. This makes a public facility with full public access. Have you ever read the fourth amendment? It states, “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable search and seizure shall not be violated….” This is definitely unreasonable search and seizure. EVERYTHING TSA does in unreasonable search and seizure.

        are you stupid? by the way, the fact that you had to mention that in the bottom of your statement implies the racial profile, even if you aren’t saying it. That’s a horrible example taken completely out of context; perhaps people should not be allowed to film airports in line, but they shouldn’t be arrested for it.

      • Daniel Sherfy

        We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal and endowed by there creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
        Liberty is a concept in political philosophy that identifies the condition in which human beings are able to govern themselves, to behave according to their own free will, and take responsibility for their actions. I believe this explains our right to travel as we see fit.

      • Bilbo

        What an idiot. It’s private business. Freedom to move around is a basic right.

      • Midnight

        Transportation is a privilege lol You are wrong on all levels of that. It is in China and Russia. Here we have the Right to get to point A to B its a RIGHT. Look it up commie

      • Bilbo

        So ‘Freedom’ thinks using transportation is a priviledge? What a bunch of spineless cattle. Sorry Mr Revere…you;ll have to get off that horse…you have no right to ride.

      • James Fischer

        Riley, Your wrong. You have a right to travel anywhere in this county by any means of transportation without having to suspend your fourth amendment right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure. What has TSA or the Department of Homeland Security done to prevent any terrorist threat. Everything they have done is after the fact. Want me to define unreasonable? How about the frisking (molestation) of a six year old. Having you shampoo confiscated because you have more than 3 ounces. How about having the hard drive of your computer searched just because some Gestapo agent believes he can do whatever he or she wants. How about being groped by some pervert again simply because they think they can. When will DHS close our borders. When will they do anything truly constructive and not just herd the sheeple along. Borrow some logging chains and look around you while you still can.

      • o9rady

        He is correct, use of public transportation systems is not a ‘right’. There is NOTHING in the constitution (where our ‘rights’ are defined) . An example of this is: you can’t just buy a car and legally drive on the roads without a driver’s license. This is a privilege being issued by the government. The government CAN put you on the ‘No Fly’ list. Rights cannot be taken away because they are given to us by the Creator (as defined in the Constitution).

      • James Fischer

        O9Rady, you are not looking at the fourth amendment. This applies regardless of whether you are traveling by car, train, bus, plane, bicycle, motorcycle, or any other form of transportation. You have the RIGHT, as guaranteed in our Constitution to be free of unreasonable searches and seizures. Without probable cause as “…supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searches, and the persons or things to be seized.” This is a right. TSA cannot take this right away from you nor can they bend it to suit their purposes.

    • I don't like it either, but that is where we are at.

      Since 9/11/2001. And I don’t think “crime” is the correct word. That word belies your pre-9/11 thinking. Now, I believe that you have to consider the action of gathering intelligence as a *possible* act of war.

      • Robrt

    • Jarhead6981

      Since 911….where’ve you been? Stop trying to find ways to hinder safety and beyotching about security and just DO IT.

      • BigDaddy777

        Are you kidding me? You refer to yourself as Jarhead, so I assume you are or were a Marine. Marines don’t cower under the bed or blindly submit when someone says, “Bend over and grab your ankles.” Marines don’t even blindly follow orders from their superiors if they believe they are illegal.

        Are Americans so afraid of the boogie man that they give up their freedoms just because someone says, “This will make you safer.” Americans need to grow a pair and stand up for their rights. Where does it end? Today UpChuck Schumer wants a “Do not Ride” list for AmTrack. Maybe tomorrow they install the same security to go into a shopping mall or roadblocks demanding …etc. America is supposed to be, “Land of the Free, Home of the brave.” Some of the comments I’ve read make me sick. America is no longer free, because of the cowards.

    • Joel Holtzman

      An institution such as an airport, which is responsible for other lives, must act in the interest of those it serves. Therefore, it makes sense to not allow people to film security protocol or anything else that would not be of interest to a normal person. The idea is that we already know the difference between filming something out of self interest (parks, views, live events) and something that could not serve any purpose to an individual unless they were trying to glean data. Why would you do so if you didn’t have any plans to use it to your advantage?

      As you argue we have the right to ‘film’ an institution has a right to protect its customers. Some view it as a ‘right’ to be in an airport. That is not correct. It is a privilege. Want proof? Go to one without a ticket and see what happens to you.

      • Daniel Sherfy

        It is our right as Americans to be any where we wish. We can be at the airport without a ticket, we just cannot go through security. We have the right in this country to pursue Happiness and for Liberty. If they don’t want people filming the security procedures than they must deem them as classified and perform them behind closed doors. Which is not allowed by the forth amendment.

      • poolekat

        So when the airport security people grope you the wrong way, you don’t want there to be any proof of it.

    • lurkio

      when you look like a person likely to be a terrorist, like it or not, some baseline has to be established to give guidance to the people protecting us.

    • Mike

      An airport is a public accommodation. Anyone has the right to use it and do as they wish unless there is a compelling reason otherwise. That is why the religious fanatics are allowed to proselytize there- the Supreme Court has already spoken on this. The TSA employees are public servants, they do their job in public, the people going through the checkpoint have no reasonable expectation of privacy in the public area but they have the right to request a screening in a private area.

      Sounds like the airport police are just cracking the whip over the sheep, getting their gratification and making themselves look busy. If TSA is doing something they wouldn’t want recorded and broadcast, maybe they shouldn’t be doing it, no?

      What type of idiot gets in a security line at the airport without a ticket or a boarding pass? If they are not up to something illegal or dangerous they should be arrested for being too stupid to be among the general population.

  • Vern

    Let’s just make up the laws as we go. No need for a legislature.

    • Sandra

      Everyone should ALWAYS have some form of ID on their person, at all times, when they are traveling. I’ve known this since I was 16 years old. Now I’m 61, still white, still female, and its still true. Get over it. It is not a crime to have no ID, but everyone with an adult mind knows you can be asked to produce it, and your life will be inconvenienced, at the least, if you do not have anything proving who you are or that you have legitimate business at your current location. Its not “making it up as we go,” it has been this way at least since 1966. Don’t be naive.

      And you can be arrested for videotaping people or security facilities without consent, if complainta are made. Arrested DOES NOT MEAN CONVICTED.

    • Doustoi

      Darrel, you have hit on a major sore spot with me. In stories like this, it is critical that the reader have enough information (race, nationality, appearance) to know whether this is conceivably a terror plot or not. Journalists have become too careful by half in protecting sensibilities of the protected ‘victim’ groups. I have also had it with newspapers that will not identify suspects or criminals who are in this country illegally.
