It's time. The TSA needs to be shut down, and replaced with the old airport security we used to have prior to 9/11. The TSA is a relic of a time where people wanted to feel safe, and the TSA provided that... while never actually preventing a single terrorist attack. For years they have overstepped their bounds, abused passengers physically, emotionally and sexually, and often stolen from them as well. This is yet another blunder in TSA's long list of missteps and abuse, and it is time it was stopped.

Happy Hours: False positives - how do they work?

I remember 9/11. It was bad but there comes a time when you have to ask yourself if this is worse.


This is the heart of the matter for me.
9/11 was a single taumaric event that most of western society has moved on from.
TSA harassment is an abuse to the culture of the nation that is reinforced every time the common person interacts with the federal government.

If you asked me which was more ruinous to the future of America, the TSA easily wins out over al Qaeda.

Did you miss the part where the TSA agents wouldn't let the girl's mother near her?
 
If she had to merely wait because the flight was delayed it's unlikely she would have been forced to be separated from her mother.

Unlikely. No film badges for the ones operating the x-ray machines proves that basic safety is abrogated, especially when it's a firing offense for being in posession of one.

>efficiently

No, you're not.

>and respectfully

Since when?

>screen nearly two million passengers each day at airports nationwide.

Boo hoo.

>We are sensitive to the concerns of passengers

Evidence over the past 10 years proves otherwise

>who were not satisfied with their screening experience

Which you just brush off

> and we invite those individuals to provide feedback to TSA through a variety of channels.

All of which are inconvenient on purpose.

Of course. I have yet to meet a TSA Agent who didn't have an enormous amount of insecurity. This kind of bullying would be punished harshly at the girl's school. But since it's "adults" doing it, and especially since they are wearing uniforms, it's just fine.

I was in the US about 2 years ago and the TSA completely ignored me (probably something to do with the guy in front of me who made Keith Richards look fit, healthy and drug-free). And dealing with customs agents in the US went really well. Really nice guy (the woman who asked me why I wasn't carrying enough luggage for my trip was really nice too).

But... I don't get this shiat. Why are there any anti-terrorism laws? Why the massive change in making everyone go through this BS security theatre?

I loved being in the US (I'm an Aussie), and think it's an amazing country. BUT you've got some really farked up reactions to things such as 9/11. I can't say that Australia is much better, since we love to follow the lead of the US with regards to things like this.

As an anecdote, I worked in a large government building in Australia that became a 'terrorist threat' after they arrested a suspected terrorist with plans to the building I was in. The irony being that the building I was in also happened to contain both the Passports office and the Department of Immigration, Multicultural and Indiginous Affairs (as it was called at the time).

So, there was a building-wide meeting and people were literally calling for armed guards, metal detectors, personal searches prior to entering the building for EVERY SINGLE PERSON entering the building.

Thankfully, the Australian Federal Police and ASIO decided that the idea was farking stupid and didn't change a damn thing. But it shows how much power can be grabbed when people are scared. "Please please protect us!"

They should have offered the mother and daughter a private area/room to await their further investigation. I agree it seems unlikely she had a bomb, however public humiliation is not the correct protocall. Dignity seems a luxury anymore.

Also, of course the mother filmed the infraction. If she didn't it would be her word against the TSA and we know how well that would go. She may be a drama queen snowflake mom but in this case it was probably the right thing to do. Because now we know not to bring our munitions smothered, sick, disabled tween to the airport. Just ship them ground.

Uh, that's bad enough, but she had to do it while TSA and law enforcement agents looked at her like she was a bomb threat.


And she had to do it separated from her mother. Which the TSA has said in the past is against the rules, but their field agents and supervisors are poorly trained, barely disciplined, and they don't really give a shiat.

It's long since time for them to be disbanded. Security theater, poorly performed.

Yeah, probably trolling. Anyone with half a brain should realize that it would be a way better strategy to not even try to board a plane with a bomb... just detonate it 10 feet from the security gate. You're surrounded by hundreds of people, and haven't been screened yet.

If this isn't happening, then either the "terrorists" are too stupid to realize this obvious strategy, or non-existent. Which one is it?

ChrisDe: My impression of TSA agents is that most of them wouldn't stand a chance of getting a job anywhere else.


This is what happens when you knock together the front line of a federal agency with ads off of pizza cartons and grab every dick squeezing, lip biting, failed security guard, pedophile and shoplifter who's too thick to swing a hammer and give them snappy shirts and badges. Kind of funny how this whole alphabet soup, terrorist alert level, 1,000 page jackbooted clusterf*ck was ready to roll out a week after Sept. 11th from a government that can't even legislate assigned parking spaces in a year's time.

Dr.Mxyzptlk.: I don't think the Israeli are pulling 80 year old holocaust survivors out of wheelchairs and breaking the will of 12 year old girls.( Been through Ben Gurion six times - pulled from line questioned and open up SLR camera.)


I've lost count of the number of times I've been through Riyadh and Jeddah. At least six times through Amman and twice each through Lahore and Karachi (Pakistan), and NONE of those places made security into the ordeal that the U.S. does. All of those places face an incomparably higher threat than any U.S. airport and all of them are under the jurisdiction of governments which don't give two shiats for the human dignity of foreigners passing through (excluding VIPs). I could get a gun through Riyadh International.

I've worked in corrections. No experience in my life more closely resembles being checked into prison than coming into the U.S. via an airport*. The U.S. is the only country I wouldn't bring my laptop into (the only country I've been to that would search it and confiscate it if they couldn't get the passwords) the only country that has tried to intimidate me on the basis of my travel history, and the only one that has demanded to know where I would be staying AND I'M A FARKING CITIZEN. It's a national disgrace that we've allowed fear to thrust us into a posture that even a decrepit monarchy and a depraved kleptocracy haven't sunk to.

*In fairness, visiting a U.S. embassy is as much like going to prison, but they have an excuse and have never treated me with anything less than courtesy and respect. They also mind their own their own business. It's odd that the Embassy in Amman wasn't interested in why I was in Jordan but the bozos in SeaTac were.

You misspelled a bunch of words, let me ftfy:

Libs: "Could we please have actual security instead of bad security theater? We understand that profiling as well as molesting everyone are both extremes that are equally ineffective, and would be happy with security that understands absolute elimination of all risks is impossible. But that's because we're not pansy bedwetters who load their drawers at the sight of anyone brown and beturbaned."

Exactly.

Listen I hate the TSA but the most that happened here was they delayed them boarding a bit. The girl wasn't groped, raped, felt up, locked in a dark room w/ spiders, yelled at or treated badly in any way, shape, or form (like most other TSA videos).. She had to sit in an airport for 45 minutes.. OH NOES!!! SCARY!!! The same way she would have sat if the flight was delayed.


A scared little girl was denied access to her mother and placed in a public display. All mental scars do not come from groping or raping.

I had an FAA inspector tell me once how the TSA gave him a hard time about his ID (they didn't recognize it and had no photo examples in their reference book (ya rly)).
