    The tricky part is doing so without getting your posts deleted.

    I LOVE how the article refers to her as just a screener, not "Officer", and then mocks the TSA costume, all in the first sentence. :D^

    This bothers me, though:

    The TSA can stop sending their employees on PR missions to schools, like right now.

    Holy Crap!! I wasn't aware of this. I have grandkids in school, but they're far away from any major airports, so maybe I don't have to worry.

    This fits right in on how pedofiles "groom" their prey.

    As a parent, I have to wonder what they do with the fingerprints they're taking (as shown in the photo.)
  5. They probably made up some kind of little child abduction card. Like, if your child is abducted, you have a recent photo, fingerprints, personal details, all handy on one card. I did one of these once as a philanthropy thing. They make it sound like it's a crucial child safety measure, but it's pretty pointless when you think it through. How often when a child goes missing are their fingerprints the key to immediately finding them? If fingerprints do become important for some reason, can't they just search the kid's room for fingerprints? Also, I can't remember who taught us to do the fingerprints, a cop maybe? But anyway, you have to do them just right or they're worthless, and with kids all squirmy and uncooperative, most of the ones we did looked smudged and questionable. I have to wonder if Miss TSA was as inexperienced in fingerprinting children as I was, and if her uniform was used to make it look like her fingerprints would be more professionally done.

    can someone put a NSFW tag in the title. I loaded this thread at work and that one non-mugshot I wasnt expecting.

    Fingerprinting a child is useless for locating them. Also, the image of the TSA screener looks like a digital fingerprinted, not ink-on-card.

    So where else are they keeping those digital prints?
  8. Aha, good point. I hadn't looked closely enough at the picture. Must be a database of some sort. That's unsettling.

    Oh, you guys will love this -- speaking of digital fingerprinting and locating -- a few years ago, my sister-in-law wouldn't allow her father to post pictures of the family vacation on a website where we all could see them. You know, proud grandpa and amateur-photog wanting to show his work and give us all easy access to the photos. Her reason? Child predators prowl the web looking for victims.

    This is the same woman who sees nothing wrong with the TSA and doesn't share my "concerns" as she put it about her children being manhandled. There's logic for you.

    Get away from my niece now!

    I'm assuming they feel they can't start conditioning our children into accepting enhanced patdowns early enough. And to accept fake authority.

    The real cops and firefighters coming to schools to teach kids street smarts, how to answer the phones and getting them comfortable to approach a real cop in case of trouble is okay with me. But TSA? A group with no real authority, spotty track records, lies, double speaks, enemies of the constitution and amendment, and NO REPERCUSSION OR ACCOUNTABILITY? No way.

    Yes, it's fine for identifying a body, but no help at all in find a living child.

    Yes, TSA, we know. That's our point.

    I'm finding it interesting that none of the major news sources are covering this. Did the DHS squash it? If they did, it sure would be nice to find proof.
