TSA Humiliates Injured Marine

The ink isn’t dry on the apology that TSA issued for terrorizing a wheelchair bound child after she passed the checkpoint in Dallas before they abuse another handicapped person. Not only shouldn’t a wounded soldier be subjected to this humiliation by government thugs, no one should be treated like this for simply trying to board a plane. Perhaps TSA can explain how any of this is keeping us safe when TSA screeners haven’t caught or even identified one terrorist after 11 years and over $80 billion in funding. Can TSA explain how pulling the dress off of a 17 year old on a church trip and exposing her breasts to her classmates and everyone at the checkpoint is protecting her? Or how humiliating and exposing a dying woman’s feeding tube at
And you can sue them. Try suing TSA.
I call BS, prove your statistic.
Have you flown recently or read the news? You cannot "keep it on your person". You must put EVERYTHING on the x-ray belt to go through the naked scanner. That is where the iPad was stolen. FYI, TSA unionized over a year ago and are represented by AFGE. pay attention or don't comment.
Just this week an ABC sting operation resulted in the arrest of TSA screener Andy Ramirez who stole the iPad from an Orlando checkpoint. One week earlier, TSA screener at Ft. Lauderdale, Andrew Smeal, was arrested for child pornography. He had been hired by TSA a month before while he was under investigation by the FBI. Clearly TSA is not properly investigating employees. There were 100 TSA workers arrested in the last 21 months including 13 arrested for child sex crimes, over 27 for theft, 12 for smuggling contraband through security and one for murder. TSA allows a known pedophile, Thomas Harkins to remain employed as a TSA Supervisor in Philadelphia five months after his past was exposed.

TSA: Carcinogenic Petting Zoo

TSA security is a sick joke inflicted on innocent people to give thugs a job. In 2007 who would have believed that people would allow a stranger to view their child's nude image and grope their privates? Today a jet skier was able to walk into Terminal 3 at JFK unabated. Despite wasting nearly $70 billion having TSA scan, grope, humiliate and rob passengers, someone can wander into one of the nation’s largest airports without even trying to skirt security. Another demonstration that all of this is no more than an illusion of security and that airports are more vulnerable now than they were before these incompetents took them over. TSA needs to be reformed or replaced before these buffoons get people killed.

TSA Expanding?

Welcome to Stasi America, papers please. The criminal agencies of DHS, TSA, FPS and CBP are violating our rights before our eyes and no one seems to object. Now TSA and DHS are bringing their attack on our liberties to the streets and public areas. No one will be safe from these thugs as they carry out random “inspections” of adults and children without warrants or probable cause. Americans have all too readily acquiesced to being digitally strip searched and sexually assaulted in airports, ignored the fact that their activities on Facebook and Twitter are being monitored and collected and didn't even wince at HHS's position that they should have access to everyone's medical history and doctor-patient confidences.

Former TSA Chief: Allow Weapons on Planes

TSA is security theater and a jobs program for unemployable misfits. After sixty billion dollars over eight years they can't cite one success. In two separate GAO tests in 2011, TSA failed to detect weapons 70% of the time while allowing 60% of the freight in the cargo-hold to go unscreened. They confiscate items their website says are allowed but five of their screeners were caught smuggling drugs through security. It’s also creepy that this wholesale sexual assault on women and children is being sponsored by a blatantly gay woman. Napolitano claims empathy for the breast cancer victims being felt up at checkpoints but she doesn't have to endure it, although she may enjoy watching. There have been 13 TSA screeners arrested this year and
More TSA incompetence in Newark. Why is the passenger being charged for the screener’s negligence? These breaches seem to happen once or twice a week delaying passengers for hours and costing the airlines tens of thousands of dollars in schedule disruption. TSA posted a 70% failure rate in GAO tests last year, has had 78 reported security breaches in the last 16 months and continues to jeopardize airline safety. Harassing passengers and humiliating them isn’t airport security, it’s a charade. TSA's lack of responsible management is why this agency is such a disaster. It has become a national disgrace and needs to be dismantled and replaced.
