(NaturalNews) Employees of American taxpayers (government officials) have once again been exposed for abusing their perceived authority by harassing and terrorizing innocent people in the name of security. At a recent stop in Los Angeles, Calif., a cruise ship carrying roughly 2,000 elderly British travelers was held for over seven hours while immigration officials needlessly summoned them to what some claimed could be likened to Guantanamo Bay-style terrorist treatment.

The several-month-long world cruise had already stopped in the US on numerous occasions prior to its recent stint, and on all prior stops, each passenger had been officially cleared as being safe and terrorist-free. But things changed in LA when disgruntled workers, who were allegedly irritated by passenger inquiries and complaints about excess security, decided to needlessly prolong and intensify the security checks even further, and subject passengers to harsh and inhumane treatment in the process.

"A couple of passengers got a bit stroppy about having to go through all the rigmarole again and these petulant officials decided to take revenge," said John Randall, a retired dentist and passenger on the cruise, to the UK's Telegraph. "There were about 2,000 people on the quayside with only eight immigration people. They were just doing basic checks to begin with but after the argument we had to do full finger prints on left and right hands and all the biometric stuff."

The same report indicates that, because the extensive checks took many hours to complete, numerous passengers naturally needed to use the restrooms. But immigration officers denied these requests, apparently out of spite, and even instructed one older woman that if she needed to relieve herself, she could do it over the side of the ship's railing.

Such outlandish abuse of authority is becoming increasingly common among all government agencies, whether it is the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) freely molesting passengers in the name of security (http://www.naturalnews.com/TSA.html), or the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) raiding and confiscating producers of natural supplements and herbs (http://www.naturalnews.com/the_FDA.html). Will the tyranny ever end?
