Seems TSA Screeners must be getting different information about pictures/video than what TSA is telling the public.
Either that or TSA Screeners are dumber than a box of rocks and can't learn even the easy things.
Rugape, TSORon, want to comment?
They lie as easy as breathe. There's no point in asking them to comment. It'll be "I wasn't there so I don't know all the details blah blah blah" from Rugape, "you're all idiots you don't know what you're talking about" from Ron, and "it never happened" from Bloghdad Bob & friends.
I wish I believed in (expletive deleted) so I could hope these people would rot in it.
the right hand on the hip hides the left hand of this guy feeling up into that young guy's family jewels. nicely done TSA. sneaky sneaky
+1. I'd like to do more than hope.
Unless they are interfering with the screening process, or taking video of the screens on the equipment, they are (according to everything I have ever seen) able to film. If she is standing in the walkways, maybe they could make the case that she is impeding the flow/causing interference in the normal operation, but if that is the case, then the conversation should have been "could you please move over here out of the flow of traffic". I have nothing on this one.
I have to wonder if TSA has required any training or conducted briefings to its workforce regarding photography? There are way to many incidents of TSA Screeners saying the same thing. Does TSA SOP address this topic?
If TSA hasn't trained its workforce then fault can be placed but if they have then dumber than a box of rocks may actually be accurate.
I think they know exactly what the rules are. They're simply exerting their power because they can.
They abuse their authority just as they abuse passengers. Par for the course.
The rules I have trained with are the same as those posted on the main TSA page.
Typical TSA non-answer.

I thought they were easy questions.

The answers are probably "SSI."
Based on how universal their illegal obstruction of photography seems to be, I would be really surprised if there is no (SSI, of course) directive from above to try to block/hinder/discourage recording at the checkpoint. As with real police, it serves to protect two groups: Good officers, whose legal behavior is documented, and abused citizens. Given the number of bad apples in TSA, it should be no surprise that they would want to suppress it.
You know full well that I can't discuss SOP unless it is something openly printed or published. However, TSA policy is posted on the main page for all to read.
And as has been well documented, what's on the TSA main website is completely and totally irrelevant to what the blue-shirted cockroaches actually do at the checkpoint...
Yes. All of them.
Asking if training is given in an area like citizens taking pictures could not compromise SSI. Asking if there is SOP on the subject was not asking what the SOP is, and in this case you tell us the policy is on the main TSA web page.
Dodge all you want but it is a fair line of questions based on the very high number of recorded cases of TSA employees attempting to block, lie about and interfere with the rights of citizens. I have to believe based on the long track record of this issue that TSA is not doing anything to correct its employees which in my mind is complicit cooperation with violations of citizens civil rights.
I do not believe that the policies of TSA override the Rights of Citizens.
And you still accept a paycheck from this organization!
Which doesn't mean diddly squat when many/most TSA "officers" seem not to follow policy. The policy on on the web page is just another lie, one of many.
It's becoming very clear that the policies the TSA posts are simply lies. The consistent interference with photography by TSA employees shows that they are apparently trained to behave that way - no matter what that lying sack of manure "Bloghdad Bob" says.
