Umm.. you can't call 911 simply because before they throw you in the glass groping box, you've already emptied yourself of all your possessions.
For all of you saying this woman is crazy, or she should have just drove, or the TSA is helping keep up safe. I sincerely hope you pull your heads out
of your backsides. Regardless of what this womans mental condition is, it doesn't make what the TSA does right. How many videos and complains have to
be passed on. How many before it stops. Give me one good reason that the TSA feels the need to feel people up the way they do? Give me one good reason
why people aren't allowed to react in a negative manor, and if they do they are immediately taken for "extra" checking?
Lets just post a hypothetical situation here. A girl in her 20's was raped as a teenager. She is going to visit someone and has chosen to fly, because
it is a common mode of transportation. As she is waiting on line with her shoes already off (thanks to the SHOE BOMBER... give me a break) the TSA
pulls her aside. They ask her to go into the scanner (so some naked pics can be taken.. and most likely saved). She opts out. The TSA makes a big
scene shouting in a very loud voice "OPT OUT". Now this girl is taken into a GLASS box and proceeds to have her "enhanced pat down". Her breasts are
felt up, hands are put down her pants, into her underwear, etc etc etc. Now remember at the beginning I said this girl had been raped as a teen. So
obviously this "security necessity" would have an affect on her no? My point being.. you don't know what this womans life is. You can't speculate of
what her mental state is by an 8-minute youtube video. I mean, unless your some sort of master psychologist or something.
Now... in 2006 there were 4.8 billion passengers, 88.5 million metric tonnes of cargo and 76.4 million aircraft movements. Of those 76.4 million
flights, there was ONE suspected plot to use terrorist attacks on planes. And thanks to that "plot" we are no longer allowed to take liquids on a
plane. Information about this plot:
Of the approximately 24 suspects who were arrested in and around London on the night of 9 August 2006, eleven were charged with terrorism offenses on
21 August, two on 25 August (subsequently discharged on 1 November), and a further three on 30 August. Eight men (Ahmed Abdullah Ali, Assad Sarwar,
Tanvir Hussain, Oliver Savant, Arafat Khan, Waheed Zaman, Umar Islam, Mohammed Gulzar) were charged in connection with the plot. The trial began in
April 2008 and ended in September. The jury failed to reach a verdict on charges of conspiracy to kill by blowing up aircraft, but the court did find
three guilty of conspiracy to murder. In September 2009, a second trial (of the eight men excluding Gulzar but with the addition of Donald
Stewart-Whyte) found Ali, Sarwar, and Hussain guilty of the plot.
One incident that had nothing come of it out of 74 million flights. One incident and we had more restrictions put on us.
The TSA was formed as an Agency of the Department of Homeland Security in November 2001. Amazing that they had an entire organization built and in
place only 2 months after 9/11 isn't it. I ask you this... since they were formed, has the TSA stopped a single terrorist? Have they caught a single
terrorist? How many weapons have been slipped past security? How many personal belongings have been stolen by "TSA Agents"? How many people have been
felt up and humiliated in the name of security? Are we really safer with these "agents" over watching our security??
Now of course I guarantee someone will respond to this saying "Well the TSA hasn't caught anyone because its working!!". No... First off, since 9/11
cockpit doors are now bulletproof and locked. So, the cave boys with box cutters aren't gonna be able to take over that way. So how about a bomb?
Well.. has there ever been any recent terrorist bombings of airlines that included a person physically carrying a bomb? Or are they generally placed
in the plane prior to the flight, or put in checked luggage?
The bottom line is that the TSA is a pointless waste of taxpayer dollars. And for all of you who accept their violations of our 4th amendment rights
let me remind you of the definition...
The 4th Amendment
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated,
and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the
persons or things to be seized.
And here is the definition of "search and seizure"
Search and seizure is a legal procedure used in many civil law and common law legal systems whereby police or other authorities and their agents, who
suspect that a crime has been committed, do a search of a person's property and confiscate any relevant evidence to the crime.
So remember folks... any time you see a person being pulled aside to be "screened" are suspected of being a criminal. That person could be you.
Oh and by the way, if the groping and nasty attitude of the highly trained TSA agents wasn't enough, now they are getting set to roll out a behavior
scanner. Yep.. a computer will now detect if your nervous or anxious and you too can enjoy the "enhanced screening" of a friendly TSA agent.
Oh.. and just a side question.. all of you who are all for this.. who think people who question this are wrong or "panzies".. have you ever gone
through this screening process? Have you ever had to have a fat sweaty middle aged man grab your testicles looking for a supposed bomb??? Somehow I
