    Obviously the abuses haven't stopped, they just aren't reported as often as before.

    Classic TSA fail:

    A TSA spokesperson said both Jana and her wheelchair set off an alarm, explosives experts were called in, and she was screened in a private room with the door closed.

    The spokesperson went on to say her screening did not take over an hour. Rather, from the time she stepped into line, to when she left the screening, it was less then 40 minutes.

    40 minutes vs. an hour is irrelevant. Either is too long to be abusing someone simply because she's confined to a wheelchair & uses hand lotion.

    They sexually molested this woman based on a test that gives completely false results. The news story still hasn't figured that out, or, most likely, that fact is carefully edited out.. And then the stupid rubrics of all these jackasses milling around a "bomb" that they know with a moral certainty does not exist. Had they real suspicions, I suspect that number around her would dwindle rapidly.

    TSA says she could contact them for one of their programs that provides personalized care/screening. Why is this not just AUTOMATICALLY provided to these wheelchair/disabled people?

    It has been three years, Pistole. Are you such a moron that you cannot figure this out in three YEARS?

    For a fee I'm sure the search engines change their algorithms for clients. How else so many old/new stories and non-aggregation of others? Not surprising it took TSA so long to catch on.

    Another commenter on the quality TSA-staffing (not) at OIA:
    You really can't make this up.

    Time for JP and company to staff recycling centers instead. Look for bomb residue there, idiots.

    It's obvious that this was the only fact that the TSA Spokeshole could dispute. The Spokeshole would have disputed this if the actual screening time was 59 minutes instead of 60.

    Maybe it's just me but screening in a private room with the door closed is a worse screening experience than one done in public.

    ...and the Sheeple seem to willingly go along with it.

    We need to start keeping the cops, the FBI, the NSA and whoever else busy by clogging up the internet with searches for all sorts of bad things. And while, I'm at it, where's that list with the words that trigger extra interest by the spies?

    Come to think of it, Pistole will never need a colonoscopy. They'll just have to analyze his hair samples.

    Thought that was a TSA job requirement.

    Especially for the TSA employees that have a high-school-gym-locker fear of being seen as a homosexual. Nothing is worse for them than having to touch another man in public, around their coworkers. :eek::p

    If you can pull off a good acting job and make it look like you're getting off on the grope, so much the better.

    This won't do any good if they require you to go into a "private room" for the "resolution pat-down" (AKA the unauthorized, illegal-as-(expletive deleted), constitution-violating sexual assault under color of authoritah)! :eek:

    They can't require you to go to a private room. You can insist they search you at the checkpoint. There have been plenty of examples where people have agreed to be searched at the checkpoint and after some arguing were allowed to proceed.

    After a "positive" ETD result?

    I have heard horror stories of (false) postive ETD situations where the pax was not allowed into the sterile area unless they submit to the "private room sexual assault." They were allowed to leave the checkpoint, but they were not allowed to the fairy-fartland known as the "sterile area" and, as a result, they missed their flight, or they went to another checkpoint that connected to the airside terminal where they were screened with no further issues. Perfect example of the terroristic passengers "gaming" the system. :rolleyes:

    I seem to recall reading that this happened to Sommer Gentry at BWI earlier this year. She refused and was tossed from the checkpoint and had to rebook. She wouldn't have allowed the search either way and says she has been bounced several times and simply books another flight and tries again.
