Is that what it was? I thought that man just recorded all of his boring life!

The lists are just another harassment scam. Driving and taking the train is usually the same amount of time after the airport waits are taken into consideration.

Yes, that's what I wondered after seeing the second video you posted. They seemed to know there would be some enhanced screening.

I wonder if he foolishly threatened someone during his father's conflict with the city? Seems like that could get you on a watch list.


Watch list or not, he was screened and was already done with the flight, what right do they have to grab him again.

It isn't just airports anymore. Bus and Train stations are also being patrolled. For some odd reason, we just don't hear about them so much.......

T.S.A. Expands Duties Beyond Airport Security


With little fanfare, the agency best known for airport screenings has vastly expanded its reach to sporting events, music festivals, rodeos, highway weigh stations and train terminals. Not everyone is happy.

T.S.A. and local law enforcement officials say the teams are a critical component of the nation’s counterterrorism efforts, but some members of Congress, auditors at the Department of Homeland Security and civil liberties groups are sounding alarms. The teams are also raising hackles among passengers who call them unnecessary and intrusive.

“Our mandate is to provide security and counterterrorism operations for all high-risk transportation targets, not just airports and aviation,” said John S. Pistole, the administrator of the agency. “The VIPR teams are a big part of that.”

YouTube doesn't always update video views in real-time. Also, not all ATS members are in a position to watch an embedded/linked video, that's why we ask for descriptions when people post videos.

That's good to know. It still takes waaaaay less time to travel on Amtrak than the lines at airports.

The way that TSA agent was pulling at his blue latex gloves creeped me right out!

Give a person a uniform and....

I know they're not all like this, they have to maintain an image of crotch-grabbery and oppression. Collective authority, mob mentality, the clout and the perks, the knowledge that you can and will come down hard on someone if you choose to with little oversight. Not good, it's plagued humanity since the first police officer was presented with a polished, fire-hardened wooden club.

Funny story, in SFO 8 years ago I got lost late at night after arriving 3 hours before my flight out. I had anticipated delays due to security and traffic, etc. In a maze of high-risk areas that only had the comforting warmth of cameras for reassurance, I finally found one worker.

She was a TSA agent, an older woman. I was civil and politely asked her how to get to the correct location. In very friendly, down to earth words she said something along the lines of:

"Now, if you go that way you have to go alllll the way around. Through the security checkpoint, belongings in the plastic bins. You really want to do that?" she spoke calmly. Then said "If you go through there, to the left, you bypass those spots. Saves you a whole lot of trouble."

Now, I considered that she was a possible ploy, meaning after I did in fact go to where she said that there would be searches and agents anyway. But there wasn't. She could've come down hard on me, scolded me for being in the wrong area, used her roll of red tape and giftwrapped me for her superiors but she didn't.

The uniform is a source of power. How that power is channeled and utilized is up to the person wearing it.

He shared this news story on his Facebook, with the comment, "Hopefully soon I can clear the name" …
Federal Court Sides With ACLU in No Fly List Lawsuit

A federal court ruled late yesterday that constitutional rights are at stake when the government places Americans on the No Fly List, agreeing with the plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union.


It appears as though he knew he was on some kind of list.


I know there is a no fly list.

I didn't know there was a let them fly but hassle him every step of the way list.

Interesting videos. Keep us informed.

I hope he has sense enough to rent a car for the return trip back home. I'd hate to think of how they would trump up charges for him once he got back in their grubby hands.

I was wondering if they were looking for his work documents. That information could be very valuable to someone.

He says he has known for three years, so how many other incidents has he had that he didn't get recorded.


Kahler Nygard, 23, says he found out three years ago that he was on the federal "no fly" list. Nygard says the government wouldn't tell him why and he insists he has no connection to terrorism.

Gotta love the screening process we have for TSA agent's, or should I say lack of.

I am not sure but, I think you are not supposed to record the TSA Security procedure.

CNN.com

Turns out as long as you don't record their monitors.

The video alone could of triggered that TSA response.

They - the TSA - seemed to know exactly who he was after he deplaned. They were waiting specifically for him. If he hadn't been properly screened at the front end, why would the TSA agents there be calling their opposite numbers rather than not letting him through the screening area to the plane?

I don't understand the drama with the boarding pass (as it's for BOARDING a plane, not getting off one), and how important it seemed to be to the TSA agent's superior on the phone. We know there are codes in the barcode and serial numbers on a boarding pass, so it may hold some clue to what they were looking for.

I guess I'm getting tired of this, "Am I being detained?" "No, but if you don't do what I say I'm going to arrest you"!!!
The TSA guy had been ordered to re-screen him! By whom? Why? That's what needs to be out in the open.
Kudos to him for walking away and inviting them to call the PD.

I'm pretty sure the TSA is supposed to catch terrorists before they fly. This gentleman has clearly been targeted for other reasons....most likely because he has something that is disadvantageous to moneybags and can change the status-quo.

"We have caught many terrorists and saved thousands of lives as a consequence"........said no TSA agent ever.



EPIC FAIL.......again.

I could possible understand checking for cannibus flying out of Denver but flying in?

Arlo Guthrie

Coming in from London from over the Pole
Flying in a big airliner
Chickens flying everywhere around the plane
Could we ever feel much finer?

Coming into Los Angeles
Bringing in a couple of keys
But don't touch my bags if you please

what right do they have to grab him again.


Thanks to the Patriot Act, they have every right because he is deemed a terrorist.

Awesome law innit.

God Bless America.
