Why did he put the cash in one of those bins? I'm assuming the guy did not have five hundred bucks worth of quarters. Just to be clear, I'm in no way defending or apologizing for the TSA. Screw them and anyone dumb enough to think they make us safer.

TSA: Robbing travelers of their dignity and valuables since 2002

Is there anyone without a direct financial stake in the TSA who thinks these fu*king brownshirt sh*tweasels are worth a good god damn?

Fu*k them all, the cocksuckers.

Having been caught at it like eight times now, they finally admit it.

At least they keep the skies safe. Just look at all the terrorists they've stopped.

I like the bill that wants to take away their badges because they are not law enforcement officers.

Who would ever have thought that taking people from the lowest rung in the ladder of life, giving them complete power over other people while removing any accountability would have lead to something like this?

The real question is, does this shiat stop once some dipshiat TSA agent gets an "attitude shiv" or does it just get worse?

It's not for sale. It doesn't JUST protect me from Mustafalupagus (the terrorist that only TSA can see). It also protects me from werewolves and vampires.

C'mon, now...these guys are keeping us all safe. Why, just two weekends ago one of them read my son the riot act for having a balled up foil gum wrapper in the pocket of his shorts that set off the detector. My little boy, being thoroughly intimidated by the shorter "man" in the uniform, looked down at him and simply said, "Seriously"?

I've never been more proud.

Problem is that TSA workers have a really stressful job, and everyone hates them. Here's a few tips to make their working experience, and your traveling experience, much more enjoyable.

There have been more TSA screeners arrested than terrorists caught or plots foiled.

Yet, some people think it's more important to kill Big Bird versus taking a hard look at this $8 billion a year expense who regularly fails us.

Citrate1007: Reduce the Deficit......get rid of the TSA


have an independent agency do security tests of airports.
when the tester gets through with "illegal" stuff:
1) shut down the airport for 24 hours while it is being thoroughly searched
2) fire the weak link

or stop pretending that it is really security already

The man placed $520 in cash in a gray plastic bin before accompanying the TSA agents to the private room. When he returned, the money was gone, with Irwin having hidden it in a TSA supervisor's draw.

You know, I want to believe this article and get outraged, but I don't trust things written by Boston-area retards who don't realize how the everyday words they're using are correctly spelled.

2012-10-04 03:38:51 PM
Last Sunday I was flying through SFO, and there was a medium sized security line, about 20 minutes in total, and a guy opted out. The TSA brat sighed and snapped out "Male assist" and the man went to the side. The next guy said "so..if you opt out, you just get an extra pat down?" and she responded "Yeah, but you might have to wait a really long time." with a disgusted look on her face.

Bemused, because I never, ever go through the naked cancer machine, I waited till it was my turn and opted out, and she sighed and made a big deal of calling out "Female assist" and gave me a dirty look.

I asked her if she knew how dangerous the machines were, and she started to respond and I cut her off and said "No one does".

The lady who gave me my free molestation was perfectly pleasant and professional, as always. They put the real idiots at the front.

TotalFark: when people travel, particularly out of the country, smart ones get cash from their local bank where the exchange rate is better, rather than relying on foreign ATMs or airport kiosks.

I have a relative who worked for the TSA a while ago, claims that this kinda thing happened a lot more often than you'd think. I think his anecdote went something like, "I knew a dude who would quickly pull bills out of wallets unattended for even a few seconds in those little trays, and then quietly brag about how many $20's he got at the end of his shift."

LessO2: There have been more TSA screeners arrested than terrorists caught or plots foiled.

So much THIS. As many have said before in TSA threads, it's highly unlikely that terrorists are going to be able to take over a US flight ever again. Post-9/11 attempts have been met with extreme force by airline passengers and the would-be hijacker/bomber has been sucessfully foiled. Given this information, I believe that we should go back to pre-9/11 screening methods and ditch the TSA.

I always opt out of the free cancer dosage too, for the EXACT same reason you mentioned. There are stories about how TSA drones bypass safety features on the baggage x-ray machines because they aren't properly maintained. I can't imagine they take care of the (not approved by the FDA) RAPEiscan machines.

Lucked out traveling from DFW to ORD though, since I had to help my little kids through the metal detector. No RAPEiscan screening and no Freedom Fondle(TM) either.

2012-10-04 03:49:28 PM
I'd really appreciate it if there were a way that all people who encounter the TSA would be allowed to submit an evaluation form to an independent, non-profit organization so that they could lobby in Washington, D.C. for a better solution. There are no real checks and balances for these TSA uniformed apes.

Abuse of authority... how does that happen? Unpossible.

I actually caught a biatch TSA agent lifting my iPod from out of my purse in the bin. I called her on it AS SHE WAS HOLDING IT and she gives me some spiel about "making sure it wasn't fake and hiding anything" and then put it back in the bin.

I wanted to punch her.

I would have talked to her boss but I was late since the security line was so long. I think they do that in purpose because people are in a hurry.

After first denying to police that he had stolen the money, Irwin later admitted he had put the cash in his locker as a form of punishment in retaliation for the man complaining over his treatment. Prison Planet

FACTS & FIGURES

Last month, a TSA screener admitted to a woman traveling through Houston Airport that she was prevented from boarding her flight for retaliatory reasons as punishment for a bad attitude rather than any genuine security threat, after the woman refused to allow TSA agents to test her drink for explosives.
Prison Planet

The TSA, in October 2010, directed the use of the scanners, sometimes known as advanced imaging technology, which some critics fear could emit too much radiation. Reuters

In addition, the TSA authorized enhanced pat-downs, which could include the touching of genitals, buttocks and breasts, for passengers unwilling to go through the scanners. Passengers who rejected both procedures would not be allowed to fly. Reuters

Critics maintain the scanners, which use radiation to peer through clothes, are threats to Americans' privacy and health. wired.com

The effectiveness of pat-downs does not matter very much, because the obvious goal of the TSA is to make the pat-down embarrassing enough for the average passenger that the vast majority of people will choose high-tech humiliation. The Atlantic

Are we still talking about TSA, or have we moved on to what happens if you give a PFC a badge and a gun?

MP: SGT, are you aware you were speeding?
Me: Really? I was doing 2 miles over the speed limit. In a 45 mph zone. So?
MP: Please step out of the car.

CSB 2:
Eglin AFB. I was driving from Niceville to Fort Walton. Decided to cut across the base instead of going around. (National Guard at the time). I was probably doing 43 in a 35 zone in the city. I came up on a military owned van full of MPs. They started following me. I figured they were probably in a hurry too. Slowed down to speed limit as I approached the base property. The second my wheels passed the guard gate, the light come on.
MP: You know you where speeding?
Me: Yeah, I know.
MP: You where doing 5 over
Me: Actualy it was 8. So what?
MP: You know how I know you were speeding? (smugly) I followed you and paced your car
Me: Yes. I know. I saw you. Again, so what?
MP: You're not allowed to speed in the city.
Me: I know. Are you gonna get to the point any time soon?
MP: We have joint jurisdiction with the city. We can pull over any military, anywhere.
Me: Oh, I'm sure.
MP: You know how I knew you were military? (smugly) You had an out of state license plate, short hair, and you drove on the base
Me: That is truely some outstanding reasoning skills you've got there. They're going to promote you to detective soon, right?
MP: You might have this fast little Mustang, but it won't be going anywhere when you lose your base driving privileges.
Me: Over 1 traffic violation out in the city? Seems harsh, but whatever. You gonna give me an 'off base ticket' or whatever so I go about my way?
MP: I tell you what. I'm gonna let you go. Normaly I would give you a ticket, but we're all real tired, and just want to get off shift. But you better not let me catch you speeding again, or you're not driving on base anymore.
Me: Sure thing, Sparky. I'll be real careful.
MP to van full of MPs (which I can only imagine he said since I finaly got to leave): Hey guys! I really had that sergeant scared! I bet he'll be scared to ever go over the speed limit again!
