Yeah, I wonder if any type of punishment will be administered to this TSA agent. I truly doubt it and that is a shame and makes the bad ones bolder.
TSA - Thousands Standing around: Topical Security Agency; Total Stupid A**Holes: Top Sex Addicts. The lists of ways to describe them can be endless but are we really any safer now than we were 10 or 15 years ago?
TSA orders tougher electronics screening nationwide. Travelers in standard TSA checkpoint lines at airports will have to remove all electronics larger than cellphones from carry-on bags and place them in a separate bin with nothing else above or below for X-ray screening. Ref. USAToday.
I saw this coming due to the terrorists wanting to make home made bombs using electronic devices as a way to smuggle bombs onto a plane, train, bus or ship.
Okay, lines are going to get long and move slower again. Just as things were starting to get more normal… whatever normal is these days.
The only Normal I know of is a city in central Illinois. There is no such thing as normal anymore. The TSA is not what most would call normal security either. IF you want real security you will have to look elsewhere and not at the TSA.
*laugh*, yes, I understand what you mean about TSA. I could think of a dozen better way to implement security at our airports and this is only tangentially my area.
The TSA is what is at our ports, train stations and airports. We have to deal with their antics no matter where you wish to travel unless it is in your own vehicle. Give them time and I am sure they will try to get in there too.
I think there is a much better way of doing this and making the public much more secure but like all other government jobs you are making it ripe for corruption from the inside out.
