I bet she's one of the first people to defend the strip-search booth, though. Because it's for safety.
 
2013-07-18 08:31:28 AM
Damn, I hope they don't start checking long term storage.  Nah, they won't, those bodies should be safe.

TSA says this is part of its overall security plan and that it's a proactive move.

Fark you.

Let's say you park at the airport and they find a bag of weed stored in a closed compartment of your car parked at the airport.  Can they get you on drug charges?  Or do they just ignore it?  What about a registered and legal firearm safely and properly stored in the trunk?
 
2013-07-18 09:22:31 AM
Not mine. I always park in an off-airport, secure, private lot.
 
2013-07-18 09:24:31 AM
TSA can also cite the incident where the Hovercraft was full of eels.

That's what I was wondering.  I have a CCW permit and there is a gun in my car all of the time.

Considering it sounds from TFA that the valets themselves are searching the car, I'm pretty sure things like that will just be stolen.
 
2013-07-18 09:27:41 AM
A better policy is to search TSA employees vehicles as they leave the same airport.
 
2013-07-18 09:28:54 AM
I leave the car at home, hop on the city bus at the stop that's 100 yards from my back door, and I'm at the airport in 15 minutes. When I lived further away I took the convenient and inexpensive GO Riteway shared ride van.

Airport parking's expensive, and that cruise around the structure looking for a spot's a pain in the ass.

Ahh the scared shiatless are out again. It is amazing how some folks function in our terribly dangerous society. I am sure navigating the terrorist infested airports and streets of America is a daunting task for most.
 
2013-07-18 09:30:13 AM
Can someone tell me why this is not illegal search without a warrant? I mean, that is kinda of against my constitutional right to avoid this.
 
2013-07-18 09:30:21 AM
Iacuzza said she doesn't mind the security measure. She just wants to be told if her car is getting searched.

Oh fark you. So why are you so pissed? Did you leave your travel dildo in the car or what?
 
2013-07-18 09:31:20 AM
We found out it happened to her because she valet parked her car. Those are the only cars that get inspected.

The logic train behind this is just amazing.

"Khalil, my brother, soon we will strike at the heart of this corrupt, godless country called America."
"Yes, Talib, this car full of explosives will reduce this airport to rubble, and strike fear into the populace, Praise be to Allah."
"So.....long term parking? Should we just leave it at the white zone, for loading and unloading passengers only?"
"No, brother. We'll make use of their decadent and corrupt valet parking service. It's fantastic, truly. You just give them your keys and tip them $5 and they take care of everything for you!"

Depends, is the NSA involved?  However, my outrage (or lack thereof) depends mostly on which party occupies the White House.

I keep wondering exactly what has to happen before people get angry enough to change the government.  People don't understand why surveillance without evidence of a crime is bad?  Or searching property without a warrant?

If the cops stop you on the road, you refuse a search of your car, and they do it anyway without a warrant, they can be at least sued.  If they find evidence of a crime, it's invalid in court, as is anything else they learn/find deriving from it.

I suspect if the TSA found bodies or drugs, they'd call the police and turn them over, and somehow the police would try to claim they didn't need a warrant because the TSA told them, even though the TSA didn't have a warrant.  That's assuming that they didn't just invoke "national security" and whisk the car owner off in secret to some off the map prison.

Yet there are still fools on the radio and out in the world claiming the TSA and all the post-9/11 "anti-terrorism" laws make us safer and are worth it.

I really, really wish the 60+ year olds in government would hurry up and die of old age so their perspective vanishes from the world.
 
2013-07-18 09:35:24 AM
Now I feel really good about the whole getting a buddy to drop me off at the airport and pick me up when I get home thing that I've been doing.
 
2013-07-18 09:35:29 AM
Just be lucky that they only searched your car...

You should read the 4th Amendment sometimes. It's really incredibly weak and doesn't protect us from anything that SCOTUS thinks is reasonable. If they can be convinced that this is a reasonable measure to take to prevent terrorism, then there is nothing in the 4th Amendment protecting anyone from it.

I would suspect that if the TSA found something, even though it was found via a warrantless search of private property, the police could still find a loophole to arrest.  When I was a security guard at a mall, I was told flat out that while on duty we could only make an arrest if we witnessed the offense personally, and we had to stay out of stores.  So, my first question was "What about shoplifters?"  It was explained to me that in the event that someone was caught shoplifting in the store by store staff, they had to alert us, ID the person and the arrest was made by them, though we were the ones with the handcuffs, and we were the ones who filled out the paperwork and called the police.  This way if it was a false arrest it didn't come back on us, it fell to the store and the store employee.  I would imagine the same thing would apply.  The TSA finds the drugs/bodies/whatever, calls the police, and the police make the arrest and seize the property.  It's still complete and utter bullshiat.  I would also assume that by valet parking you are no longer on public property but on private property and that by doing valet parking you are consenting to having your car searched.

I saw a pic this morning on facebook, it was the Picard and the 'Why the fark' meme, and the pic was "Why the fark are people rioting over Zimmerman and not the TSA, NSA, police militarization, a ten year war..."

2013-07-18 09:48:54 AM
Nonsense. If the TSA were really concerned about explosives, etc, then why have the valet attendants do the searching?
 
2013-07-18 09:52:52 AM
Clearly, if you ave ny contraband, leave it in your checked bag. Because not even the airlines can find that!
 
2013-07-18 09:54:42 AM
So everyone involved in this story is wondering why the cars in valet parking are the only ones getting inspected while leaving the short-term and long-term parking lots uninspected.

Well, duh. The TSA doesn't have the keys to the cars parked in the other lots plus they just have the valet drivers inspect the car while they're already in them.

Of course what they don't know about are the TSA agents combing through the homes and apartments of the people with cars parked in the long-term lots.

2013-07-18 09:56:34 AM
I'm not sure I understand the logic of this. Why search cars that are valet parked? What if the valet him/herself is one of those turrorists and they are the ones planting something?

I was on a ski trip and bought a couple of all aluminum travel coffee mugs as souvenirs. I stuck them in my ski boots for the return trip, I had to leave the plane while my checked bag was searched.
