TSA SINGLES OUT PEOPLE WHO COMPLAIN...
Don't like the way airport screeners are doing their job? You might not want to complain too much while standing in line.
Arrogant complaining about airport security is one indicator Transportation Security Administration officers consider when looking for possible criminals and terrorists, CNN has learned exclusively. And, when combined with other behavioral indicators, it could result in a traveler facing additional scrutiny.

"It's circular reasoning where I'm going to ask someone to surrender their rights; if they refuse, that's evidence that I need to take their rights away from them. And it's simply inappropriate."

But if "A" = "A", then "TSA" = "TnA"

Bill would require parental consent for TSA pat-downs of minors...

"They claim there is a modified pat-down for 12-year-olds and younger, but when you see those videos, you realize that just isn't true," Chaffetz said.

The proposed legislation would require that a parent must give their consent before a child receives a pat-down, and that the child must remain with the parent while the pat-down is performed.

Chaffetz would like to put an end to those practices and continued his claim that there are better ways to protect Americans in the skies than full-body scans and pat-downs, a process he calls "security theater." Chaffetz says TSA could protect the country just as well with the use of bomb sniffing dogs and behavioral screenings.
"That is what they do in the White House, the House of Representatives, and in the theater of war," Chaffetz said about using the dogs. "They aren't bringing in whole-body scanning machines, they are bringing in dogs."

Chaffetz admits that his plan to implement the usage of the dogs over the scanning machines will have an uphill battle.

"The dogs don't have something the scanning machines do have -- a lobbyist,"
Chaffetz said.

Gordon is paid $37,000 annually as a TSA screener, records show.

REPORT: Former Miss USA 'Sexually Molested' by TSA...

April 27, 2011
Miss America 2003, Susie Castillo, says a TSA “screener” fondled her vagina during an intrusive pat-down.
Ms. Castillo was subjected to the groping after she refused to enter a naked body scanner at the airport in Dallas, Texas.
In late 2010, the TSA put in place new procedure guidelines instructing agents to use their “palms and fingers” to “probe” airline customer bodies for hidden weapons, including breasts and other private parts.
On April 15, CNN reported that people who complain about naked body scanners and intrusive airport pat-downs will be investigated as terrorists and criminals.

Earlier this week, Janet Napolitano, head of the Department of Homeland Security, said the TSA had the authority to conduct an intrusive pat-down on a six year old girl. “Parts of the pat down, in another setting, clearly constituted the kind of inappropriate touching that, if done by anyone else, would have resulted in charges of child abuse and sexual assault. The pat down even caused the little girl to cry, her parents later said in televised interviews,” writes J. D. Heyes.

Texas Bill Would Make Invasive TSA Pat-Downs a Felony...

"The bill would make it illegal for a security officer to intentionally touch someone's private areas -- even atop clothing -- unless they have probable cause"
Last fall the Transportation Security Administration started a new pat-down procedure.
Susie Castillo, crowned Miss USA in 2003, said she was "molested" during a pat-down last April.


Some of us think it's already illegal.
"The Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution is the part of the Bill of Rights which guards against unreasonable searches and seizures, along with requiring any warrant to be judicially sanctioned and supported by probable cause.
The Supreme Court has also ruled that certain searches and seizures violated the Fourth Amendment even when a warrant was properly granted."

Tulsa Airport Traffic Fell 6% Last Month
High fuel prices and steadily increasing air fares are causing airline passenger traffic to tumble at Tulsa International Airport, executives said Monday.

In April, 211,058 passengers boarded or deplaned commercial aircraft at Tulsa International, a 6.68 percent decrease compared with April 2010, and the largest year-over-year drop in passenger traffic since February’s snow storms caused a 10.33 percent decrease in passenger traffic.

TSA agents take 6" plastic hammer from mentally disabled man...

The family was going through security when two TSA agents singled Drew Mandy out for a special pat down. Drew is severely mentally disabled. He's 29, but his parents said he has the mental capacity of a two-year-old, which made the experience that followed at metro Detroit's McNamera Terminal that much harder to deal with.

"You have got to be kidding me. I honestly felt that those two agents did not know what they were doing," Mandy told us.

Dr. Mandy claimed they asked Drew to place his feet on the yellow shoe line, something he didn't understand. They proceeded to pat his pants down, questioning the padding which was his adult diapers. When the agents asked Drew to take his hand and rub the front and back of his pants so they could swab it for explosives, his dad stepped in and tried to explain that Drew was mentally challenged.
"They said, 'Please, sir, we know what we're doing,'" Mandy said.

The TSA agents saw Drew holding a six-inch plastic hammer.
"My son carries his ball and his hammer for security. He goes everywhere with (them)," said Mandy.
"It just killed me to have to throw it away because he's been carrying this like for 20 years," Mandy said.

The TSA it seems saw the toy as a weapon.
The TSA took away one toy hammer, but they were still able to take another toy hammer on board the airplane. How did that happen?
Drew's mother, always prepared, had another one in her backpack and that already passed through security with no problem.

MAN! THAT WAS A CLOSE ONE!

MOTHER ARRESTED AFTER REFUSING TO LET TSA GROPE DAUGHTER...
The arrest comes on the heels of public outrage over a video showing a pat-down of a 6-year-old girl at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. The April video prompted a new policy that took effect last month in which airport security screeners must try to avoid invasive pat-down searches of children.
TSA says it will instruct screeners how to make repeated attempts to screen young children without invasive pat-downs.
The instructions should reduce the number of pat-downs on children, TSA says.

Woman Who Twisted TSA Agent Breast will NOT face felony...

Miyamae’s attorney Judd Golden says his client was violated, endangered and threatened by the actions of TSA agents. She denies doing anything wrong.
Golden released a statement Tuesday, saying Miyamae is a self-employed translator, author and radio producer. He used the following words to describe how the situation unfolded:
Ms. Miyamae says she told TSA agents she wanted to be screened by the metal detector gate.
She did so out of concern for excessive radiation exposure from the full-body scanners, as she is a frequent business traveler.
Her request was denied. She was soon surrounded by TSA agents. One TSA agent, a tall woman, approached Ms. Miyamae, who is only five feet tall.

Ms. Miyamae felt panicked and experienced a volatile aversion to the TSA personnel violating her personal physical space. She felt endangered and threatened based upon prior traumatizing security pat-downs, repugnance at the prospect of being touched again in such a violent and undignified manner, and instinctively pushed the female TSA agent away.

New screening software installed at Tulsa International Airport

Federal airport security officials have installed new passenger screening software at Tulsa International Airport that addresses personal privacy concerns while increasing the efficiency of the screening process, officials say.

Known as automated target recognition software, the new technology is used with the millimeter wave advanced imaging technology machines that depict potential threats under airline passengers’ clothing as they move through the Transportation Security Administration’s security checkpoints.

Stephen Cortright, TSA’s federal security director in Tulsa, said the new ATR software and five new x-ray baggage screening machines that will be installed at the airport next week highlight TSA’s new “risk-based,” intelligence-driven approach to security screening.

“These are the first two phases of what (TSA) Administrator (John) Pistole says are risk-based procedures ... that will help everybody to provide a more thorough appraisal of passengers,” Cortright said at a brief press conference at Tulsa International Airport Wednesday. “We can determine very quickly what is a threat and what is not a threat. “We’re excited. We think it’s the wave of the future.”

The new software eliminates the passenger-specific images of the old software that drew criticism from privacy advocates and civil libertarians. Instead of the human form displayed on a computer monitor, the new software generates the outline of a person with any potential threats highlighted on a monitor attached to the advanced imaging technology machines.

If no weapons or potential threats are detected by the software, the AIT monitor displays a green screen with “OK” in block letters.

The new software is being installed at 39 U.S. airports besides Tulsa International Airport, including Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, Denver International Airport, Chicago Midway Airport, Houston Hobby Airport and Bush Houston Intercontinental Airport.

TSA Creator Says Dismantle, Privatize Agency...

“The whole program has been hijacked by bureaucrats,” said Rep. John Mica, chairman of the House Transportation Committee.
“It mushroomed into an army,” Mica said. “It’s gone from a couple-billion-dollar enterprise to close to $9 billion.”
As for keeping the American public safe, Mica says, “They’ve failed to actually detect any threat in 10 years.”

“Everything they have done has been reactive. They take shoes off because of [shoe-bomber] Richard Reid, passengers are patted down because of the diaper bomber, and you can’t pack liquids because the British uncovered a plot using liquids,” Mica said.
“It’s an agency that is always one step out of step,” Mica said.
It cost $1 billion just to train workers, which now number more than 62,000, and “they actually trained more workers than they have on the job,” Mica said.
“The whole thing is a complete fiasco,” Mica said.
In a wide-ranging interview with HUMAN EVENTS just days before the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Mica said screeners should be privatized and the agency dismantled.

Senate Passes Bill Allowing Airports To Evict TSA Screeners...

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

The Senate has passed legislation that includes a provision allowing airports to replace TSA screeners with private security, opening the door for the widely loathed federal agency to be marginalized from aviation security altogether.
Should airports choose to replace TSA screeners with their own private security, it would not only mean the screeners were better trained and more responsible for their actions, alleviating the problems of thefts and abuse by TSA workers, but it would also create tens of thousands of much needed jobs for the private sector.
“Some airport executives have argued that contract security personnel are more courteous than government workers,” reports CNN. “It was felt that a private contractor would provide friendlier customer service to the traveling public,” the head of a Roswell, New Mexico, airport wrote to Congress.”

"Engineer Jonathan Corbett has published a video where he shows how he took a small metal case through two of the TSA's $1billion fleet in a special side pocket stitched into his shirt.
This is because, he suggests, the scanners blend metallic areas into the dark background - so if an object is not directly placed on the body, it will not show up on the scan.
The metallic box, he claims, would have set off an alarm had he passed through the old detecting system.
His revelation comes just weeks after Europe banned the 'airport strip-searches' over fears the X-ray technology could cause cancer."


In this image, the metallic object is not directly placed on the body and so does not show up on the scan as it blends into the background.
