    I cannot find it today but last night I was reading comments about this story in the Orlando Sentinel and someone posting as John Gross claimed that he was told there is no video of the incident because they are "currently upgrading the system". If true, how very convenient.

    If the video doesn't turn out their way, they always seem to have an excuse.

    So TSA is apologizing for something that they say didn't happen. Why would anyone apologize for something that never happened?

    I suspect TSA's version is based soley on the screeners version of events and we all know that TSA screeners lie.

    TSA, (expletive deleted) in Action!

    At this point, nobody should be surprised that a bunch of low-life thieves, thugs, molesters, and morons whose sole excuse for having the job in the first place is based on lies would lie about what they're actually doing (or not) on the job.

    I don't see any text in that article indicating that the TSA actually apologized.

    If they hold true to form, it'll be in the form of "We apologize that you feel our screeners (who followed procedure to the letter in an abundance of caution) overstepped any boundaries that you imagine still exist after 9/11."

    Maybe they should be charged with impersonating police officers, because that seems to be the same excuse cops use when the video shows them being pigs.

    Apparently Congress needs to add this in their "reform" package if they're not going to dump TSA/DHS entirely:

    1. All grope stations will be completely recorded, video and audio, from at least five vantage points, while in operation.
    2. If any part of the recording system malfunctions, that grope station will be immediately closed until it is repaired.
    3. In any dispute between any TSA employee and any non-TSA employee, failure to provide recordings FOR ANY REASON will result in the presumption that the non-TSA employee's testimony prevails.

    we're sorry, we're so sorry.

    whatever the h*ll that means in the context of TSA. We know it doesn't mean much. It certainly doesn't mean they won't do again. They'll just keep doing it and apologizing, like some obsessive compulsive person.

    TSA "believes" what transpired???? Either it happened or it didn't. Either your know or you don't, asshats.

    it is consistent with their constant denial of everything -including reality, rational and practice of honesty.

    Bingo! This is what happens when you request the presence of the cop at a trial for a parking ticket; if the cop doesn't show up, the judge throws out the case. At least in Baltimore.

    Let's face it, just about anyone has greater credibility than a TSA thug. They are notorious liars. If there exists no video to back up their story, it must be presumed to be a fabrication. The very lack of video is extremely suspicious.

    The TSA representatives claim to have a "belief" about what transpired that is inconsistent with what the traveler relates. Whatever! :rolleyes: "Beliefs are based on emotional need more than anything else. If they have a "belief" that makes them feel good, by all means allow them to cherish that "belief." While we recognize their right to meet their emotional needs with whatever "belief" makes them most comfortable, the rest of us have a right to think THINK about the Evidence from a Rational perspective.

    There is no way I would take a TSA thug seriously without an independent witness or video and/or audio of the incident in question. Furthermore, police do not qualify as credible witnesses in my book. Police lie routinely, based on what they perceive to be in the best interests of their law enforcement counter-culture. Honor and integrity are very hazy concepts within their ranks. Until LEOs learn that telling the truth consistently is key to credibility, they will continue to lie whenever they imagine it to be convenient. How can such a person be considered a credible witness?

    "Honor" and "integrity" are non-existent concepts for employees of the TSA.

    Except that this is TSA.

    Where everything, including the American constitution, amendments, due process, local and federal civil laws, and scientific evidence is ignored unless it satifys the whim of the present screener.

    And the whole of TSA's process and method is that each and every person is guilty until proven innocent-at the present screener's discretion.

    So don't you be quoting any standard legal sense to confuse the matter! :p
