TSA Checkpoint Tapes Are SSI When Jon Corbett Is In Them

    I've finally (5 months later) been denied an FOIA request for the security checkpoint tapes from when the TSA ejected me from their FLL checkpoint (after, you know, threatening me with arrest, forcible search, fine, and completing a retaliatory bag search). The checkpoint tapes have been deemed SSI and unreleasable.

    Everyone here knows that TSA checkpoint videos are routinely (Rand Paul, Andrea Abbott, etc.) released. But, not when I'm in them.

    Good thing I made my own recording. Details on the blog...

    How much has this been costing you? Not only in money, but in time, energy, stress?

    Money Spent: Somewhere between $1K and $2K, some of which has been paid for by donations.

    Time, measured by lost income: Over $10K, easily.

    Energy/Stress/Mental Health: Not as much as it would cost me to know that I did nothing to stop this. :)

    This is why most people can't afford to go through the legal process. So-called legal so-called process.

    Yeah, it sucks. I've met so many pro se litigants that are simply lost and overwhelmed, both in terms of time and money. But, the TSA f*cked with my lifestyle here -- travelling is my passion -- and it's worth the above and much more to me to get it fixed. Hopefully at the end, the legal system will re-imburse me for my expenses, but we're a long way away from that possibility. Anyway, the new lawsuit I'm filing in February will ask for punitive damages, so although the lawsuit against the scanners won't make me money, the lawsuit against kicking me out of FLL could turn out well as far as the financial side of this battle.

    Jon question in FL is official oppression law or similar laws on the books? As since we know this is (expletive deleted) with so many other videos, might be away to turn things on TSA and cause more grief to a FSD that needs a assbeating more then anything.

    As far as civil law, the problem is that the feds will indemnify their employees. They'll hire the lawyers, pay any judgment/settlement, and the employee will probably be promoted. Under almost no circumstances will the employee be personally responsible for civil damages.

    As far as criminal law, the TSM could probably be charged under FL's false imprisonment. However, I decided not to pursue criminal charges.

    It's your business but I would hang each and everyone of them out to dry if I had the opportunity.

    I would have left out "...out to dry..."

    Yup. I would have also left out the 1380 foot-pounds to the 3rd vertebra. I see no need for a quick expiration.
