    WRT to the FPS document, this may be a violation of Federal policy.

    Did anyone else notice that when the TSA 3-striper threatened to call an "officer" she called his bluff, and he brought over another TSA goon? I wish she had kept it up. I also wish he hadn't given them his information.

    Which is also telling. Most Americans just want to "do the right thing". He was told to hand it over, and he did. I hope he learned his lesson...

    I like this guy - would love to have him join us underground. How do we find him?

    The procedure is:

    (1) On the video, click on the YouTube logo to watch on YouTube (depending on how it's embedded, might also be available on the right-mouse-click menu)
    (2) Join YouTube if you haven't already
    (3) Click on his YouTube handle at the top left of the video, this links to his profile
    (4) Scroll down & click on the "Send Message" option in left column
    (5) Etc.

    There's also an option to add him as a friend. If you do that, you then will be given an option to subscribe to his videos.

    We should start doing this with all interesting videos.

    so, who is posting this to the TSA Primary Liar, Blogdad Bob, and asking what is/has happened to the fat and fatter hitlers who attempted to harass this woman, against their own stated position on video at the checkpoint?

    Good video, but I do wish people would start to publically state the names of the screeners like this "supervisor" who harass and try to intimidate those who are photographing.

    He also should have named the airport.

    Why did the TSA feel they had to take his information because he asked questions about the clarity of the scan? More intimidation.

    While he believes he has a solution to the pat down, he clearly doesn't understand the intellectual capabilities of many screeners. Good heavens, they can't be trained to recognize ID's or know that photography is not forbidden. Why does he think that a screener can "interview" someone during the "pat down" to determine if they should undergo further investigation.

    Further, his idea to arrest someone to give them a thorough pat down is simply outrageous!
