‘tsa sucks’ Archives
A lot of people get peeved about TSA pat downs. But a Bonita Springs woman is accused of groping an agent at Southwest Florida International Airport and it's all on tape! It happened on her way to Cleveland, Ohio. Airline passenger Carol Price says while going through security to catch her flight, a TSA agent groped her. In response, the [...]
Air travelers will eventually be able to keep their shoes on to pass through security, but the restrictions on carrying liquids on board are likely to remain in place for some time, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told a POLITICO Playbook breakfast Tuesday. "We are moving towards an intelligence and risk-based approach to how we [...]
CNN has discovered that the TSA considers "complaining about TSA procedures" to be a profiling marker for potential terrorists. They explain that one terrorist (the "twentieth hijacker") complained a lot about TSA screening, and so that means "getting angry about TSA screening procedures" goes in the "signs of terrorist intent" [...]
Kind of lame actually, these guys don't develop the policy they just enforce it, which is what they're paid to do. Sure the TSA sucks, but why punish everyone for the acts of a few? Fed up with what he views as crappy treatment from the TSA, the owner of a restaurant near Seattle-Tacoma International Airport has decided to put all TSA agents on [...]
Yes TSA is a joke, yes our airport security is a joke and yes this won't change. An undercover TSA agent was able to get through security at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport with a handgun during testing of the enhanced-imaging body scanners, according to a high-ranking, inside source at the Transportation Security [...]
Phil Mocek knows he isn't required to show ID to fly, and that it's perfectly legal to record video in publicly accessible areas of an airport. A jury agreed with him earlier this week, acquitting him of trumped-up charges brought against him by TSA and police officers who demanded obedience. He didn't need to call any witnesses or testify [...]
This Venn Diagram is close, but they forgot dentists!
She sure moves unnaturally. The small side to side head movements are creepy.
Well this is an interesting way to avoid an airport pat-down! A woman who planned on flying out of LAX airport decided she would try and avoid a pat-down by leaving little to the imagination in a tiny black bikini. In a interview, the woman said she wasn’t concerned about the pat-down but she “feels like the TSA is making people feel [...]
Call the TSA’s Office of Strategic Communications when you’re threatened with arrest for airport photography
Flyingfish knows he's allowed to photograph TSA checkpoints from public areas in the airport. He knows this because it is the TSA's publicly stated position. But a refused-to-identify-himself TSA agent and a state trooper at Hartford's Bradley International Airport don't know this, so they detained Flyingfish, told him he was in big trouble... [...]
As the whole mess with the TSA scanners has received a lot more attention in the last week or so, a few folks are noticing that ex-Homeland Security boss Michael Chertoff, who's been quite busy defending the naked scanners, happens to be making a ton of money from one of the main ones, Rapiscan, made by OSI, a client of Chertoff's consulting [...]
As the U.S. government retaliates against an American for refusing to allow airport security to grope his genitals, the nation’s Homeland Security secretary considers waving the intrusive “pat-downs” for Muslim women who consider them offensive. The demand came last week from the politically-connected Muslim rights organization [...]
The TSA's enhanced testicle-fondling and schlong-scanning procedures get the NMA treatment. LOLs: 1) random cross-dresser 2) RapeScan Systems, Inc. 3) Osama's Secret.
Oleg Volk has a smashing new TSA checkpoint warning side: Achtung! TSA! breast-groping ahead! (more…)
Gizmodo filed a freedom of information request to force U.S. Marshals to give up images improperly retained from security checkpoint scanners. These machines were from a courthouse in Florida and show lower-res pictures than those produced by the Transportation Security Administration's newer machines. Nevertheless, this is a hundred people [...]
The Republicans control the House of Representatives and are bracing for a long battle over the President’s health care proposal. In the spirit of bipartisanship and sanity, I propose that the first thing on the chopping block should be an ineffective organization that wastes money, violates our rights, and encourages us to make decisions [...]
