    "non-intrusive"? The *ssh*l* that got in my face at STL & tried to pick a fight was "non-intrusive"?

    Not to mention the one at BUF that just got sent off to the hoosgow for helping drug dealers evade security to carry cash through the airports.

    Or how about my facial expression (the redness and watery eyes or whatever) are as such because someone just walked by me wearing five and half bottles of sharp perfume?

    Or the expression I have is because I just annoyance because I came out of the elevator where some kid hit every single button and their parents let them?

    Or a multitude of things that has nothing to do with compromising safety of others traveling. Even license and trained psychologists and their likes aren't always 100% right. Some half wit yahoo with minimal cursory cliff noted training working hours on end staring at countless thousands of different people can make an accurate assessment in a few moment? I got a bridge to sell you.

    Again, as with everything else in this abusive agency, this is Pistole's doing. This is Pistole's fault. The man is a menace.

    Neither Pistole's boss, nor her boss, have done anything to rein him in.

    Nor have the complicit hordes of blue-shirted thugs refused to carry out the stupidity.

    There's plenty of blame to go around - but it all comes down to having a bunch of undereducated dingleberries running around pretending to be concerned with "security" when their sole concerns are exerting authority, groping people, and stealing stuff.

    That pretty much sums it up.

    I really hate that phrase. :rolleyes: It indicates no critical thinking has been done by the person making that statement.

    I haven't yet had the opportunity to speak to one of these clowns. When the time comes, I'll be pleasant and will tell them what airport I'm flying to, and maybe a small tidbit of what I do for a living. If it goes farther, That's the time that *I* want to see some ID. If it's not an LEO or a person with a Human Behavioral Degree, the conversation is over.

    If it's a LEO, the conversation should still be over.

    Yup. No one is required to answer the inquiries of law enforcement, even if you are under arrest. The 5th Amendment is still in force, NDAA notwithstanding.
