    Whoa, hang on a second! A TSA employee can't refuse someone's request for an opt-out. What a poorly written article.

    Not that people didn't try -- as I said, she held up well. Just about everyone else from TSA who's wandered in here has picked up their toys & left.

    It's too bad they don't learn anything and go get a real job, instead of continuing to accept a paycheck for lying to and molesting people.

    That is what ticked me off. I provided clear direction from a pump manufacturer that stated to avoid certain screening devices and her opinion was superior to the makers knowledge. Ciarin and people like her are a danger to the flying public and I took action to mitigate that danger.

    I am still here... Admittedly, I am not as active as some of the others have been, but I am still here. I also think I tend to be less confrontational and listen, rather than just challenge for the sake of the challenge. She was a lively poster, but she seemed to be unwilling to listen, and that makes her seem less able to adjust and learn from the posts here. Like you Mike, I think many here underestimate her capabilities, she is more intelligent and knowledgeable in general than some of the conversations online seem to indicate.

    Ciarin refused to accept information I provided directly from an Insulin Pump manufacturer that said for pump users to avoid various forms of airport screening equipment and was going by her observations on what was safe. I think that brings valid questions about her intelligence and demonstrates a person not willing to learn. The larger problem is that TSA seems to be chock full of people just like her. If Ciarin is the TSA example of TSA screener intelligence and knowledge then I think the problem becomes very clear. In Ciarin's case I think she proved her level of capabilities, and no we did not underestimate her lack of extremely important aspects of reasoning and intelligence.

    she's an apparatchik. If she had the capability of thinking for herself, she would not have the job she has. That job requires the ability to accept nonsense and willingness to perform nonsensical as well as repugnantly immoral procedures on passengers.

    That's a little harsh. I'm quite certain that there are TSA employees who are capable of thinking for themselves.

    They just pretend they can't because they enjoy groping people and stealing from them.

    There are currently two categories of TSA employee: the ones who're so stupid and/or incapable of thought that they actually believe the horsepuckey they spew, and those who really know how stupid the whole charade is but do it anyway because they like it.

    I think there is a third group and I'm afraid this group is the real problem and outnumbers the other two groups combined. I think many TSA employees are just fricken evil people who enjoy abusing others.
