I am sick of the whining about being "violated"; you can use the (perfectly safe) scanners or you can be searched by hand. If that makes you uncomfortable, stay home, or use alternate transportation. It's your right to travel; it is not your right to demand that all venues bend to your will.
BTW--just because someone says they are treated insensitively doesn't mean they were. Chances are they just weren't treated like royalty--very sensitive royalty. These agents have to check out THOUSANDS of people a day; there is no time to treat these people like the children they act like.
Go fix yourself a tall glass of S T F U.
I realize many of you don't mind kissing government boots stepping on the back of your neck. You're the kind of person that actually licks the boots and brings them to a high shine and looks up and says I love you. They spit in your face anyway. Looks like that Stockholm Syndrome has taken effect for you.
Let's get something else straight, Pete. I Never "GAVE UP" and my rights you sorry SOB sack of crap. I never gave up a damn thing, these sorry SOB's TOOK IT! Just like everything else they do. Come up with more unconstitutional and hogwash crap that destroys or constitution and bill of rights. They set it on fire and then you have the audacity to tell me I gave up rights. I guess I "gave up" my rights too when they passed the UN-Patriot Act?
You couldn't be more wrong! Additionally, it's all over the news and talk radio. The callers call in with report after report of over-the-top, doing your job too well, insensitivity and power tripping. Aside of the outright fondeling and groping. Exposing womens breasts in public and more.
Local DA's are now setting a new standard where they are going to persue and enforce standing laws the same as they would their own officers, a dentist a teacher or anyone else. Nowhere does it say TSA workers are exempt from the same laws that govern regular officers. Search: San Francisco DA will prosecute TSA workers same as anyone else.
People like you Petey, are what's wrong with America.
