Here is a post by a person named Haisan Elsharkawi that was just posted on Facebook.
THIS IS AN IMPORTANT POST DO NOT IGNORE: Tonight I was about to board my flight, and as I was about to step on to the plane, an officer came up to me and started asking me questions like "where are you going" and "why". As I was answering the questions, he motioned for me to get out of the line and walk over to a table. At the table there were 5 other officers waiting. They began asking me numerous questions very roughly. After they continued to ask questions without explaining their reason, I said "Do I need my lawyer?" They got really angry and threw my belongings out of my bag, searched them and took my phone. Then they demanded that I tell them what my password was in order to unlock my phone and search it. I said No. They accused me of hiding something suspicious because I asked for my rights (lawyer). Then they told me to place my hands on the table and demanded again that I unlock my phone for them to search. Again I said no. I told them I am not comfortable with their treatment and asked again for a lawyer. They kept threatening me saying "you will see what's going to happen to you. We will make you miss your flight, and we will make this really bad for you." After saying again that I refuse to unlock my phone, they told me to place my hands on my head, then they handcuffed me and began taking me away. At this point, I feared for my safety and I announced "I am being detained and they are not allowing me to have my lawyer. I am being detained and they are not allowing me to have my lawyer." After saying that, the officer twisted my arm and forced my body down. Then they said "we are going to take him downstairs". After they brought me to a downstairs, they put me in a jail cell. They interrogated me about HOW I became a citizen, where I work, where my wife works, why I was traveling, and again told me to unlock my phone. Again I refused and told them it was my right to have a lawyer, and again they said if I need a lawyer, then I must be guilty of something. They sent in numerous people to the room I was being interrogated in and finally a HOMELAND SECURITY agent came into the interrogation room saying that they are trying to protect the country and that if I didn't unlock my phone for them to search, then they would take it from me, send it to headquarters and give it back in 1 month. After 4 hours of being interrogated, I unlocked my phone. They searched through my facebook, my messages, my emails, my pictures and began asking me questions about what they found in my phone, like my business, where I work, where I buy my merchandise from and on. After hours of being interrogated and missing my flight, they released me. I immediately called my lawyer and will continue a process of filing a lawsuit. For those of you who say "the issue in America is no problem, it will be fine" you need to WAKE UP.
