That is my claim, yes. It is obviously easy to disprove. Go ahead and do it.

Experts. Experts that do not report to you. .... Especially people who work for the government. They have a way of making you uncomfortable.
Sorry, they are my employees, they work for me, and they have VERY strict limits on what they can and can't do, precisely because of cowards like you, who are willing to kow-tow to anyone in a uniform. Now, as for "If only you knew what the government knew", that simply
does not fly in a free country. Now, it is possible that we should, under different circumstances, quake in our boots. But we are not in those circumstances, so go take photos of trains from public property or other places where you have permission, and when the police choose to give you a hard time, you can give them a hard time right back.
Because, we still live in a free country. It's not just soldiers who defend our country, it's every citizen who stands up to someone who illegitimately tries to take their freedom away. Cue the patriotic music here.
