On the other hand, what do they do with the odd people that really enjoy the fondling/pat downs. The ones that try to slip back into the line for more

The time for talk has come and gone, If people allow this to be done, we are doomed. When people see others being abused by laws that are wrong, they need to get some guts and step in to stop it. That means everyone! do not allow them to intimidate you. There is not much that can be done on there part if you out number them 10 to 1 I don’t think that there is a court out there, or a force out there that will prosecute a large group, there are too many witnesses against there side. We need to start getting physical to stop this if need be.

Welcome to "1984" , how much more will the sheeple put up with ?
Uh... I thought the sheeple were President Bush supporters. Last I checked, this new way of screening passengers was implemented under Obama.
Are you saying that sheeple support Obama also?

folks I think we're missing the bigger picture here.
What other purpose would it serve to get folks to go
through body scanners? ID purposes perhaps?
Are the body scanners an alternative to RFID chips.
Isn't your body scan as unique as you and your
fingerprints are??? Once you've been scanned
they keep your name on file along with your data.
We also have drones that can do retinal scans.
They can also be in airport scanning machines.
I wouldn't get anywhere near one of them if you
want to keep your privacy. Stop flying !!!
They are data mining ID info on everyone.
Local law enforcement is the key to this. Just because a person refuse a search by a SECURITY GUARD not a LEO, is not a crime. How exactly are they going to detain a person against there will for refusing a check by a security guard? The TSA obviously has there heads in a dark hole. I just don't see how an illegal detainment, and this civil fine would hold up in court.

The air lines them selfs will put a stop to the TSA mess when they start to lose enough money over this. I see a lot more travel by car and bus. Hey, a bus company could do an ad on this. "Come ride with us. No scanners or pat downs. Your junk is safe when you take the bus"
