We're going to need a Traveler Security Agency to protect us against the newly armed TSA.

"Every local airport has its own security arrangement with local police to some type of contract security force," said J. David Cox Sr., president of the American Federation of Government Employees, which represents the screeners. "There is no standardization throughout the country. Every airport operates differently. Obviously at L.A. there were a fair number of local police officers there."

Didn't help the dead guy, did it?

There's not a single problem on earth that unions won't try to solve by spending more of YOUR money.  These people are like a goddamn broken record.

Teachers have been demanding more money for decades, and we're still graduating 'tards.  Here's a protip:  If a union suggests spending more money on them to fix a problem, do the exact opposite.  In this instance, identify crazy white men and give them $5,000.  I bet it would do more to make the TSA safer than anything they are suggesting.

Italy has armed guards on catwalks in the Rome airport ever since terrorists shot it up in 1985 and killed a bunch of people. It is very surreal to see it even though they are there to protect the general public.

You can't put armed guards everywhere though, and mass shootings can happen anywhere. By that logic, we would have armed guards posted at all schools, movie theaters, political rallies, restaurants, etc.

Maybe that would be one way to cure unemployment, but it's not the way I want to live.
 
2013-11-03 11:22:24 AM
Typically passengers will get angry with an airport screener if a bell goes off and the agent asks the passenger to pass through security a second time or if an agent confiscates a prohibited item decides to act like a little Hitler.

You can have an armed guard at a terminal without it being a TSA agent. Especially since TSA agents aren't LEO. In fact, it might be a good thing to place an LEO at a checkpoint. They can also watch the TSA agent for illegal behavior and make an arrest when there is inappropriate groping.

Yeah, having a workforce that has an annual turnover rate of around 25% and a shiatty work environment is a really good idea.

Let's arm postal workers too while we're at it.

2013-11-03 11:34:13 AM
No way. If a person with a gun and ready to shoot is already at the TSA checkpoint, then it's already too late to do anything. I can't imagine too many violent gun owners go to the airport to cause problems and personally I don't remember reading about a lot of airport shootings.

A few years back some dude shot his way past a checkpoint at the US Capitol.  It didn't really matter that the guys operating the checkpoint were armed Capitol Police.  There really ain't nothing you can do if someone wants to shoot his way through because in a crowded chaotic place like an airport, it's so very likely that the first warning any guard will have is the sound of the other guards getting shot.

And by there own admission, LAX has a strong police presence.  Actually, if you've ever slow through that airport, it has cops everywhere you look, an entire police force of it's own to be exact.  And in this case they did their jobs.

2013-11-03 11:39:54 AM
Yeah of course.

Cause security always outdraws the perp.

They always shoot the perp in the arm to knock the weapon out of their hand too.

Terminal full of people and this kid has a murder machine with high capacity bullet clips and hits 3 people?

Cops had to already be only feet away when he whipped out his rifle.

ocd002: You can't put armed guards everywhere though, and mass shootings can happen anywhere.


Problem is they seem to happen where there are the fewest armed people.
They also happen alot more often at schools, of late.

Its tragic that the first TSA agent, ever, has been killed in such a shooting. But if the solution was more guns and guards then we should have put more guns and guards in the schools and other places a long time ago.

The TSA is rather low on the list to demand it be first in line.
 
2013-11-03 11:41:45 AM
So with 1.8 million people per day getting screened by TSA, and one incident in oh, ten years, making it 1 in 65,700,000,000 ... the answer is hire hundreds, if not thousands more to hang around the airport and be the first one to get shot before he can draw his weapon?

I'm willing to be that the only thing we'd see is innocent travelers getting shot for saying or doing something stupid, that otherwise would have resulted in a scolding.

You joke now, but wait til somebody shoots one of the Transportation Security Agency's security agency's agents, and the Transportation Security Agency's security agency will be demanding a Transportation Security Agency's Security Agency's security agency, so they can have Transportation Security Agency's security agency's security agents protecting the Transportation Security Agency's Security Agency's security agents.

2013-11-03 11:58:21 AM
So we are going to hire armed security guards, to protect the unarmed security guards.  Anyone wonder if there is a way streamline this whole mess?

It's only a matter of time before terrorist themselves switch to the next logical target, and start attacking the TSA checkpoints themselves.  Think about it, where else in the airport do you have so many targets packed so closely together, and none of them have even been searched yet.

They probably should at least train and arm the supervisors, and make having enough brains to do so responsibly a prerequisite for the job.  Of course that would mean we would have to start hiring somewhat intelligent people as the norm, instead of using TSA as a jobs program for people who would otherwise be on welfare.  Don't get me wrong, most of the people in TSA seem bright enough, but every checkpoint I have ever seen had at least one previously thought extinct hominid in their employ.

Hey TSA... When you keep breaking the law by molesting people and their kids, plus stealing stuff, eventually people will get tired of your criminal gang activity and shoot you f*ckers dead.

2013-11-03 12:06:08 PM
So they're going to put real law enforcement officers at each checkpoint? Does this mean they'll have the power to arrest anyone doing something illegal, like, for instance, someone violating the Fourth Amendment? Because I could get behind this.

The real problem for the TSA here doesn't involve one guy losing his shiat and opening fire on them.

Their problem comes from the fact that every farking person in line sincerely wishes they could do the same, without repercussions.

You guys just don't get it - You don't perform a valuable service, you ARE the enemy.  You ARE the SS at the border checkpoint randomly pulling Jewish women aside and raping them in the back room.  You ARE the terrorists.

Think about that for a minute - You farkers think you need guards to protect you from the same public you so enjoy annoying and humiliating and occasionally assaulting?  No... You don't need guards, you need to find legitimate work.  Since most of our politicians lack the balls to admit that their little experiment has failed miserably, we need every single American to outright refuse to work for the TSA.  Only then can we start to consider winning the war on terror; because right now?  We've outright surrendered.<BR>

Are you shiatting me? Real law enforcement officers have been the biggest violators/enemies of the 4th before it was cool for the TSA to do it. As obnoxious as the TSA are, they aren't nearly as bad as "real" cops.
