[liberationtech] I’ll never bring my phone on an international flight again. Neither should you.

I guess apologies are in order.. I may have been generalizing based on my own experience ... 

On the other hand, i was talking only about meddling with the private information on your phone. 

The experience you mention is about physically roughing up travelers and stealing personal belongings from the suitcase, something well documented in many Latin American countries. In fact, the latter is why people wrap luggage in plastic at the airport, or use locks, etc...


Regards / Saludos / Grato

When I was leaving the country, the police asked me twice "if I was completely sure that I was not hiding anything with me".​ ​ I was submitted​ to a shameful and very detailed search in my body.  The police was hurting me, being brutal, and one of them put her hand between my legs using a lot of strength, doing exactly what Trump likes to do with "kittens".  So I used my sweetest voice to inform her that my clit was nearby, but a bit more to the left side and was pretty sensitive, and asked to avoid being so rough, pleaseee.  It was unexpected enough to make her blush a lot and finally stopping to treat my body like an object, aff...  Savage!  Well, when I arrived in Sao Paulo and saw my suitcase, I cried a lot.  It was completely destroyed and they had stolen even the alfajores, the dulce de leche and other candies that I had bought to my family.
> ​I bought a chip and a cell in Buenos Aires for some private calls and destroyed it before going to the airport.​  I had no electronics with me, only few clothes and some Argentine candies.  No drugs, no animals, no plants, no alcohol, no anything.
