Seriously every time I think the TSA couldn’t stoop to a new level of stupidity they prove me wrong.
First up is an incident involving an 85 year old grandmother for refusing to receive an unnecessary dose of radiation provided by the local high school drop outs. The results:
An 85-year-old woman said Saturday that she was injured and humiliated when she was strip searched at an airport after she asked to be patted down instead of going through a body scanner, allegations that transportation security officials denied.
Of course as usual the TSA claims that this never happened and that it violates their policies and procedures. There’s one problem though, we regularly hear about incidents like this and the TSA always claims it never happened. They only admit they screw up when it’s caught on tape. Just because policy says you don’t do that, doesn’t mean one of your agents demanded it because she wasn’t a compliant sheep. The can verify before and after but not during the screening as it wasn’t recorded. Why not record it if there’s not strip search involved and it’s just a pat down?
Then as if the TSA needed to further display their stupidity and show exactly why none of them were able to graduate high school we hear about this incident.
Well, maybe it was a really realistic gun design and they had good cause.
See what happens when you try and justify the idiocy of the TSA, they just show you how much of a bunch of morons they really are. Then the TSA agents babble on as amateur lawyers to intimidate passengers.
So the agents delayed her long enough to ensure this girl missed her flight and for what!? A lesson to her about how she should just be a good little sheep.
The list of problems with the TSA is long and distinguished. Anyone who says the TSA is necessary to prevent the next terrorist attack is lying. The score board currently says otherwise because it’s been the people the TSA has been violating that stop the terrorist attacks. The TSA is a security theater and needs to be done away with. Even a congressman that called for their creation thinks they are bloated and need to go.
