    They always do, just ask TSA.

    Good comment, Bill.

    BTW, do I perceive correctly that there are fewer and fewer AFS comments in response to articles such as this?

    Seems to be. They do tend to congregate posts on certain sites, like HuffPo, which ironically tends to be anti-TSA. I am convinced that these are organized efforts by DHS/TSA operatives, possibly posting from government facilities.

    They choose their battles carefully and usually seem to avoid the more heinous abuse stories. They prefer to comment on stories about "run of the mill" travelers who won't get any sympathy by virtue of being elderly, a child or disabled.

    I used to fly 10-12K miles per month out of Sky Harbor and back. Between PHX and ATL, you have two of the major reasons I quit flying entirely - and changed jobs so I wouldn't be asked to fly.

    PHX and ATL are two of the most wretched hives of TSA scum and villainy I've seen personally. I understand Newark is worse, but I haven't been there in a very long time indeed.

    It seems that "proper procedure" is whatever the clerk decides it is for at the moment and can change at will.

    With the victims having no knowledge of what should happen how can there ever be complaint?

    Two threads on the same topic were started simultaneously. They have since been merged.
