Dear TSA, Please Stop Molesting Kids at the Airport

Townhall.com

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not represent the views of Townhall.com.

excerpt:


The other day -- after slogging through a check-in line at one of the nation's busiest airports, dutifully removing my shoes and belt, and checking my bag and pockets for other potentially dangerous items (water and loose change) -- I was pulled aside by a crack Transportation Security Administration agent so he could further investigate the contents of my carry-on. While waiting, I witnessed what looked to be a 10-year-old boy being molested by a 250-pound man.

Now, normally I would have reported this incident to the proper authorities. Inappropriate contact with a child, inside or outside his clothing, is a criminal act. But in this case, the proper authorities were the ones feeling up the kid, and the father had already protested the frisking -- although, like all of us, he probably understood that no matter how vociferously he objected to this bit of state-sanctioned criminality, it wasn't going to change anything.

Who knows? Maybe the kid had earned the attention of TSA by sporting that "Minecraft" hoodie. Or maybe his laptop had set off the explosive detection machine. Or maybe he was randomly picked. The boy looked innocent enough to me -- which may have been exactly what the little would-be villain had in mind. When the father inquired, the agent told him -- right before touching his son's crotch -- that this sort of thing has become necessary because of drug mules using children.

If you don't think the terrorists have won, you probably haven't visited an airport in a while. Not only do these places needlessly gobble up hours of our days and billions of our dollars but here we also collectively lose all dignity and act like a bunch of automatons just so they'll let us out of the place. Though sometimes it seems as if we might never escape. If we really wanted to slow the caravan from Central America down, we would make the migrants enter through a TSA checkpoint.

It is at those checkpoints that we suspend our disbelief and pretend that (often) disheveled and (very often) rotund government agents who separate us from our water bottles possess the expertise to ferret out terrorist plots. (By the way, is there not a single physical requirement needed to hold this allegedly vital security job?)

Then again, it's one thing to force millions of adults to schlep through these slow-moving lines so their toiletries can be scanned by some uninterested government worker -- on occasion sharing a few moments of rough intimacy with a blue-gloved stranger -- and another for kids to be used as props in this production of security theater.

If you're thinking, "Hey, David, you have no expertise on issues of security, and you know nothing about how to stop bad people from getting on planes," you're 100 percent correct. That only means I could probably work for the TSA.

Let's not forget that in 2015, the TSA sent internal investigatory units, "red teams," to airports around the nation to see whether they could sneak explosives and guns through the screening process and onto planes -- which they did 67 out of 70 times.

**SNIP**

The TSA... one of the biggest boondoggles ever foisted on the public. :hairpull:


I remember way back when I used to look forward to flying. Now it is a wearying chore at best. :coffeenpc:

Why stop there? How about stop molesting all of us at the airport. :shrug:

Nothing gives me the redass more than being given the 3rd degree interrogation-patdown-search-through-my-luggage by three rude people with borderline special-needs IQs speaking broken English!! :redhot:

Who's kidding who here? They have about as much chance of catching terrorist as I do as a passenger. Perhaps less, now that I think about it.

It's nothing but Security Kabuki (I'm forever in the debt of the man from whom I stole this phrase): we both pretend they're keeping us safe, but we all know better.

I've stopped flying commercial altogether.

I refuse to be irradiated with a X-ray machine, searched and treated like a criminal.

Eff the TSA and the Obamunist for putting these low IQ morons acts on steroids. They have never caught nor stopped one single terrorist. Ever.

Are the TSA misfits unionized as well? That figures...

I understand that sentiment but I canít stop going to often far away places quickly for my job. So I must fly. Commercial, because no money for a billionaire lifestyle.

So I actually signed up for TSA precheck. They now have even more information on me, but they had all or most of it anyway. My consolation prize is that I get through using the TSA precheck line which doesnít do the mm wave radiation but instead we go through a regular magnetizing metal detector.

I donít see this changing anytime.

Remember they have no authority to arrest. That badge on their chest is fake. They have to have police on scene to execute any arrests. So maybe it's time we got rid of the agency and went back to private contracts.

That brings up a good point.

So these TSA are federal agents, but only the local law enforcement and state laws only apply here as they cannot arrest anyone?

When Texas and Florida tried to opt out from the Obamunist administration's invasive TSA "enhanced screening" program, they threatened to make their states into "no fly zones" enforced and blockaded by the US Military.

So, it cannot be both under state and federal jurisdictions at the same time? It has to be either one or the other?

I call BS. The scanner sees if I forgot a tube of lip balm in my pocket.

They are not federal "agents" in the come with us, we are the government sense. This is a law enforcement officer in the TSA.

You will be required to carry a firearm and maintain firearms proficiency as part of conducting law enforcement activities. Failure to maintain firearm proficiency may result in either assignment to another position, demotion, or separation by appropriate procedures. In addition, you must be proficient in the use of hand weapons and be knowledgeable in unarmed combat.

Criminal Investigator. He's a gun carrying LEO. You can't enforce the law carrying a pair of molester gloves.

From the TSA website. They have NO authority. That badge is for show only. Wanna bet your life on their authority? See what happens when the shooting starts. There is a lot of black and white running from the shooting and that mass of blubber will run you over to get away from the shooting area.

One good point brought up. TSA can exclude you from entering a gated area. They have no more authority than security at an NFL game. They can say you can't enter. If you try and push through after being banned from that gate, police will arrest. That's normal practice anywhere with law enforcement. Get banned from a property and try to enter anyway and we shall arrest. Simple matter.
