    I didn't say I would or wouldn't work on a smurf, but in general fire/police/EMS opinion of TSA is pretty bad and the bad to positive is about 100,000+ to 1.

    When it comes to CPR odds of survival are very low unless its witnessed and there are people there who know how to properly do CPR, until ALS arrives to take over.

    I believe in Karma and you reap what you sow... and what TSA has sown will come back in spades!

    I agree. A couple years ago I was suffering from heart failure and unable to make it from the LRT station to the Humphrey Terminal at MSP. My wife went to seek assistance, and it was a smurf & an airport police officer who came out, located me & took me to the terminal. There are good smurfs, even if their organization collectively is hard for us to stomach, plus in matters of life & death it's not for us to judge.

    I agree most smurfs are plenty pleasant. Even during my incident at FLL, the only smurf who wasn't pleasant was the one named in this thread. After I left FLL, I went to RSW and the smurfs were even joking around with me there, telling me I should apply for a job since my blue hair matched their uniforms. But, I'd even try to save the unpleasant smurf. It's neither hatred nor desire for harm that I harbor, but rather a desire to enlighten them that both society and the law looks down on their behavior, and neither excuses them because they're doing their job. (Society doesn't uniformly understand the level of harm that they're doing, and the law requires an uphill battle, but I digress...)

    ...and on that note, tomorrow's my day away from technology. See you all this weekend.

    A gratuitous personal attack was moved to the moderation queue. Any repeats & somebody will be taking a short vacation until I have more time to spare for being tolerant.

    FYI, Rolando Negrin didn't murder anybody; he assaulted another TSA agent who had been harassing him mercilessly. Nobody was killed.

    Missed that faux pas, yes Rolando's victim survived.

    Rolando is the screener with the small "package" who perhaps should have paid more attention to all his "size matters" spam. :D

    Just a note that a representative from Broward County contacted me today and confirmed that Mr. Chamizo is NOT a county employee, and therefore must be TSA. If he's not a TSM as Bart suggests, I must assume the only other possibility is an A-FSD. ...but I suspect TSM, and that Bart's list is simply outdated. The last time I worked for a government entity, I worked with credentials that at one point were 4 months expired since they were too lazy to re-do them at the turn of the year. I assume that the TSA works at the height of laziness (except when it comes to violating people, stealing, etc.).

    Broward County also informed me that no county incident records exist of my encounter, and that the security cameras are not county-operated (and therefore must also be TSA). Let's hope they didn't "lose them" or that the "cameras weren't working," as so often happens with the TSA. :rolleyes: (BTW, wouldn't unreliable cameras be an incredible security problem?!)

    Not for an organization that provides no real security in the first place. Why would they be concerned? Then they might actually have to address the matter.

    See, I'm under the impression that the TSA isn't lying about the security cameras, and that they really do lose them or have broken cameras. The problem is that when a real terrorist goes through a checkpoint (because let's face it, the TSA won't actually catch them at the checkpoint) and the FBI goes to the TSA for the video and they don't have it, there's going to be (expletive deleted) to pay, and Nappy and Pissy's asses will be directly on the line. Ultimately, a security video of a terrorist going through a checkpoint would be a very useful video to have, especially for BDO program developers, and failure to obtain it would be inexcusable.

    FYI, earlier this year, in April, FLL was advertising for a AFSD for screening......

    Yes. But functional cameras would prevent the TSA thugs from supplementing their income via theft, and introduce more accountability for their actions. So why would any of the TSA employees want cameras around that could contradict their lies?

    When someone claims that their list shows information contradicting a statement and refuses to show what's actually on the list, it's not my first assumption that the list might be "outdated," but rather that the situation is much like the average TSA clown's claim that "the website is outdated."
