I am actually in SHOCK that the police even took a report, let alone investigated it or "found out" anything...

What's this world coming to when you can't trust in the police to be dishonest?!? (yeah, let your noggin` wrap around that a few times)

inner ted: what_now: 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.

b-b-b-but i've been assured that my tinfoil hat is too snug for thinking that our illustrious government would do anything that may put the population at risk.

those machines don't spew toxic radiation, they shoot happy beams & freedoms

duh


No, they spew cash -- right into the pockets of whomever owns/rents the relevant senators.

JohnCarter: But but but ....they have blue shirts....WITH real epaulets...and a shiny gold badge. We MUST show them respect.

Did I mention they have epaulets? If that doesn't scream authority and competence, then nothing does


Had 4 of them, not one of them under 300 lbs, insist that my wife get out of her wheelchair and hobble through the screening device, then take off her shoes (which takes about 5 minutes) so they could take cursory swipe over her feet.

Not one of them offered any assistance. They sat there in their chairs talking about the $1.99 4000 calorie breakfasts they'd scored that morning.

Jus' followin' pro-see-juhs I guess, but when you give someone power without the ability or wherewithal to use some discretion, no good can come of it.

Way to go you badass ARNG you really showed him!


Okay, the first one was a dick for pulling me over for 2mph over the speed limit. Really? 2 mph?

The second was a dick because he had no authority to pull me over in town (or he would have done it) and wanted to be Mr Cool MP and fark with me on the base, where I *wasn't* speeding.

So yeah, I was being a dick to someone who was being a dick to me. I get tagged doing 15 over on the hiway, I am polite and accept the ticket since I was clearly in the wrong.

Having lived in Jersey half my life, you're wrong.

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 tic ...


It's weird. I don't know you from Adam and to the best of my knowledge I've never met you or otherwise come in to contact with you but if I were asked I'd have to say you seem like a douche bag.

I hate the TSA as much as the next person but you know what, just because I do what I have to in order to see my loved ones. My sister is having a baby in a couple months and you bet I'll be on a plane to be there for her. My personal comfort comes secondary to being a supportive sister.

You reek of douche. Four people in this thread alone have picked up on it to the point that they felt compelled to point it out to you.

For me, it was the fact that you're so proud of being a SGT that you brought it up 3 times in a 60 word story. You have the same attitude as the PFCs you hate on. You have a little bit of power and responsability, and you think it makes you cool. That, and the fact that you told a story about being an asshole, confidant that you were coming out looking cool.

I like the way that now with the new nude-o-scope machines, they want EVERYTHING out of your pockets, including your wallet. That's right, just stick it in your bag and let it ride out of sight through this machine where you can't see it while you're stuck in a little box making moose antlers with your hands. It's very important your wallet not be with you. You know, for safety.

That is actually a fairly common strategy in the fun-filled world of budding dictators. The National Socialists did it with the Brown Shirts, Stalin's Secret Police heavily recruited from otherwise dead-end groups of people. So did Mao's socialist thugs. Same in socialist Cambodia under Pol Pot.

The idea is that you take Losers and give them authority they never dreamed of, and gratitude will keep them in line and loyal.

This is one of the things that soured me on Dubya.

If TSA authority is expanded to trains, buses and random automobile traffic stops we got some real trouble brewing, folks. People high up in government with agendas (the party really doesn't matter) are angling to turn them into a Brown Shirt army.

TacoBeelzebub: LessO2: 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.

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.

/It would be easier to blow up people in the security line now than to try to blow them up on the plane


Exactly.

Pre-9/11, the standard rule in airline hijackings was to NOT resist, just go along with it and you'll be okay. Hijackings up to that point were for ransoms, or were people wanting to make a political statement, or to defect to a country they couldn't normally enter. The idea of using the plane itself as a missile was not seen as an option.

As of mid-day, September 11, 2001, that is going to be the first thing on anybodies mind if their airliner get hijacked. Nobody is going to expect to make it off alive unless they fight back. Even if you smuggle a gun aboard. . .you'll run out of bullets before you run out of passengers giving you a beat-down.

As you said, the easier target would be the security line itself, or ala 12 Monkeys, a biological weapon disbursed at the terminal of a major international airport, and by the time anybody realized anything the contagion could be in cities around the world.

It would be more practical, cheaper, and effective to go back to pre 9/11 screening and security, disband the TSA and let the blueshirts return to their jobs at Mal-Wart and gas stations across the country, step up the Federal Air Marshal and Federal Flight Deck Officer programs, and make it clear to passengers that in the event of a terrorist hijacking. . .resist.

Ya think, DiNozzo?

I think we ought to designate a small section of grass outside each airport terminal as an official "TSA Douchebag Impalement Area" and equip it with the appropriate supplies. Vlad the Impaler was on to something. We need to heed his guidance.

Just Another OC Homeless Guy:
If TSA authority is expanded to trains, buses and random automobile traffic stops we got some real trouble brewing, folks. People high up in government with agendas (the party really doesn't matter) are angling to turn them into a Brown Shirt army.


TSA agents on trains and highways? No way that will ever happen.

bunner: Just Another OC Homeless Guy: Pud: 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?

That is actually a fairly common strategy in the fun-filled world of budding dictators. The National Socialists did it with the Brown Shirts, Stalin's Secret Police heavily recruited from otherwise dead-end groups of people. So did Mao's socialist thugs. Same in socialist Cambodia under Pol Pot.

The idea is that you take Losers and give them authority they never dreamed of, and gratitude will keep them in line and loyal.

This is one of the things that soured me on Dubya.

Apparently, homelessness gives one a very lucid and broad scope view of the cyclical nature of history. You want to make a difference, this Nov? Vote for this guy.


LOL! Well, it DOES give me a lot of time to think about stuff. That's one of the problems with our country today: everyone's working so many hours, commuting, worrying about bills, staring in psychic exhaustion at the Tube, listening to Republocrat/Demoblican blowholes telling them what to think, etc. that they never have time to notice that the shirt is being stolen off their backs and that their hands and feet are slowly being tied up.

That's sort of the idea. We call it "the way things are". And we're damned proud to piss our lives up a rope chasing that 5 B/R, 2.5 BA Cape Cod while they do it.
