TSA In Our Airports: The Shaming of America

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As if the intentional stalling out of flights was not enough to ruin your trip, the raging and screaming TSA agents add another layer to the attack on flyers that begins when they enter the airport. Never will you encounter a more aggressive and perverse group of individuals, than those who work for “national security”, TSA. What happens in these individual’s minds when they don that uniform and tin badge, is beyond comprehension for the average person. What passengers are routinely exposed to is a planned assault that has little to nothing to do with keeping anyone safe, and more to do with acclimating  the public to not only produce their papers but to submit and comply to the orders from government thugs.

Our airports, outfitted with billions and billions of dollars in high tech scanners, should be sufficient for determining the safety of passengers. But, no. For some reason the slightest movement will produce a screen covered in little yellow squares indicating to the TSA agent that you are a prime target for molestation and hyper aggressive behavior. Now, at this point, as the agents are all screaming “you moved!”, wouldn’t the rational thing be for you to enter the scanner a second time and try to hold still? If they know that’s what caused the yellow blocking on the screen, wouldn’t a reasonable person think it more logical to have you enter the scanner a second time? Not so fast! You are dealing with TSA personnel here and if there is anything they aren’t, it is rational and logical. More

‘I’m Not Going to Be Interrogated As a Pre-Condition of Re-Entering My Own Country’

Reason contributor Paul Karl Lukacs describes a recent experiment in asserting his right to remain silent at the San Francisco International Airport:

“Why were you in China?” asked the passport control officer, a woman with the appearance and disposition of a prison matron.

“None of your business,” I said.

Her eyes widened in disbelief.

“Excuse me?” she asked.

“I’m not going to be interrogated as a pre-condition of re-entering my own country,” I said.

This did not go over well. She asked a series of questions, such as how long I had been in China, whether I was there on personal business or commercial business, etc. I stood silently. She said that her questions were mandated by Congress and that I should complain to Congress instead of refusing to cooperate with her.

She asked me to take one of my small bags off her counter. I complied.

She picked up the phone and told someone I “was refusing to cooperate at all.” This was incorrect. I had presented her with proof of citizenship (a U.S. passport) and had moved the bag when she asked. What I was refusing to do was answer her questions.

While being detained, Lukacs learned that he is listed in a government database as a guy who thinks “there’s some law that says you don’t have to answer our questions.” Ultimately, he reports, “It took half an hour and five federal officers before one of them acknowledged that I had a right not to answer their questions.”

By questioning the demands of government agents, of course, Lukacs was committing the crime of “escalation,” which triggers a summarily imposed penalty of hassle and delay. One Customs and Border Protection officer suggested that Lukacs should be forced to sit  for “two, three, four hours…until he cools down.” READ MORE
