    I think we have seen this girl in another video on You Tube. Nothing out of the ordinary except that these folks seem to religiously opting out. I’m wondering how they are taking such clear video without interference from the screeners.

    Why do people smile and laugh with the clerks who grope them? There is nothing pleasant or cordial about anything or anybody earning a TSA paycheck. They have got to feel as uncomfortable, nervous, and as threatened as you can make them. One needs to stop short of oral threats, but, you must stare at them like a middle linebacker looking across the line of scrimmage into the eyes of the quarterback. This kind of animosity towards fellow humans is foreign to most of us, but, we really have to treat them like the enemy they are.

    I think the smiling is a mocking gesture also used in the previous video. She's making fun of the screener groping her. In another video a man made groans and faces of ecstasy, openly mocking the screener during the search. It made the young screener visibly uncomfortable, so mission accomplished.

    I don't think making nice with the groper. The up the crotch move again by this 55 gallon hamster with genital contact. How a human being can do this all day to innocent people is beyond me.

    Objection! Assumes facts not in evidence!

  6. I agree that the smiling is mockery. The whole process is supposed to be grim and humiliating, so if you act like it's nothing, or even that you enjoy it, you can take it as a small victory if you want to.

    There is no doubt in anyone's mind my view of pat-downs when they're occurring. I have a snarl on my face and shake my head repeatedly while it's occurring. AND when it's over and I'm "free to go" you'll hear a f-u very much.
     
  8. Oh, I totally respect that stance as well. I think people have to go with what works best for them, and in the given situation.

    Just out of curiosity, do the Pedosmurfs give you any hassle over that?

    When I got mine (same one I mindfreaked the young smurf) I also held up my handswith two middle fingers extended, one towards the fat (expletive deleted) watching doing nothing, the other towards the stupervisor.

    I'm just chicken enough to whisper it under my breath...

    No reason to. As a matter of case law such utterances have been declared protected speech via the first amendment. Any action taken against you is both a federal felony and a civil tort, and because SCOTUS has declared speech a fundamental right damages are trebled.

    So is mouthing off to a cop. I guess if you live through the tazing, bruises, and broken teeth, the comfort is that you can sue.

    Better have your cameras rolling for the occasion. Otherwise their assault on you will be come your assault on them after they lose or edit the security tapes, and then there is the omnipresent $11,000 fine from Herr Röhms blue shirts.

    Any interaction with a government "official" should be in camera. Literally.

    No... "in camera" from the Latin "in a chamber" means "away from the public eye."

    Any interaction with a government "official" should be on camera. Preferably one not controlled by the agency in question.

    Especially as concerns the worthless TSA workfarce.
