    they STILL don't get the memo??????

    Just how stupid are the cretins that this agency employs (rhetorical question, no answer required)?

    Yet we are told time and again about the superb training (and re-training) that they receive.

    Either incapable of being trained, the trainers are incapable of imparting training, or as is most likely the case - both given the 'trainers' are from the same gene pool as the operatives...

    Like it or not, the TSA harridan has apparently gotten the memo. Instead of directly lying to him and telling him "photography is forbidden," they're now using local law enforcement to do the harassing, by claiming "suspicious activity."

    This is where you turn around and file a complaint (and follow up with the DA to press the matter) for harassment and making a false police report. The threat alone of thise should give them pause and cause a pucker factor of 50 event.

    BTDT more then a few times when someone sticks there nose where it doesn't belong when I'm shooting or capturing video, usually that stops it from reoccurring but the few instances it didn't (2/3 were TSA goons) reading the riot act and promising (I don't threaten) legal action stopped them in there tracks the third instance person didn't take the hint and got physical with me and lost that battle physically and legally (I also got 2 new cameras out of it).
