TSA: Despite objections, all passengers must be screened
CNN ^ | November 15, 2010 5:55 p.m. EST | the CNN Wire Staff

Posted on 11/15/2010 4:20:38 PM PST by Las Vegas Ron

Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- In response to a video of a California man's dispute with airport security officials, the Transportation Security Administration said Monday it tries to be sensitive to individuals, but everyone getting on a flight must be screened.

The video, in which software engineer John Tyner refuses an X-ray scan at the San Diego, California, airport, has sparked a debate over screening procedures.

Don't touch my junk bro!

Seriously, I wonder what the real motive is here, maybe big sis is trying to destroy the airlines?

Yassir Arafat's Moslems started hijacking plane back in the 70s. Moslems hijack jumbo jets and fly them into the WTC and the Pentagon.

Moslems are to blame. Moslems are to blame. Moslems are to blame.

I was reading a link off Drudge that had passenger stories about the pat-downs. One 67 year old woman was told not to travel wearing an underwire bra! This has gone beyond insane.

I will drive, thank you.

If the Muslim don’t screening, they should open their own airline and just use it.

Problem solved!

but everyone getting on a flight must be screened.

Unless, of course, you are a Muslim female, then it will all be waived in order to respect Muslim sensibilities. In Iraq, when all Muslim men were being searched, the suicide bombers became women, or men dressed as women. But, not to worry, passengers usually become unconscious before the airplane wreckage hits the ground. You won't feel a thing.

If anyone wore that on a tee shirt attempting to board a plane, they would be threatened with jail time. Also, they’d be facing a very stiff fine and a royal reaming by TSA agents. Life would be made very hard on you for the time you’re in the airport.

Still, it would be neat to have one.

“to get from Point A to Point B”

But don’t miss the fact that this politically correct nonsensical policy is not necessary to get from point A to B.

It’s only necessary to advance the anti-American, anti-Constitution agenda of the subversives in the democrat party.

We should never put up with it. Big Sis, you answer to us. TSA, you answer to us. And you will.

Just tell them you are Muslim and that your “religion” prohibits this type of treatment.

Nothing is going to change until we send the Marxist Democrats and their buddies the Muslims back to their caves.

The Democrats and the Muslims are making the screening as miserable as possible as they can.

Making criminals out of conservative capitalists is just fine with Democrats and Muslims

Good one! There are a lot of imaginations running wild here, and it’s a hoot.

Never thought that I would live to see so many fainters on FR. Do you think that they would have ever been able to make it in the military in Iraq? (At HQ even, not talking about patrolling.)

Seems like they are answering a different question. Of course everyone should be screened. Its the groping causing the problem.

Hey, that should drive the cost down, along with the added cost of all that "security". Brilliant! Wait until the first "colon bomber". You will simply LOVE the TSAs new appliance for that search. LOL!

Has anyone yet seen a MUSLIM woman dressed in Muslin garb treated in this way by the TSA in an Airport? OR a Muslim MAN for that matter? Pictures please! I don’t believe it has happened. Why? THAT would be “Profiling!” Every CAIR and ACLU attorney in the nation would be on that Airport like white on rice! So, the REST of us Americans are subjected to ILLEGAL and UNCONSTITUTIONAL searches that CLEARLY violate the Fourth Amendment, yet those who most LOGICALLY might be suspected of being a part of Islamofascist terrorist attacks against us get free passes onto flights after our rights have been violated and in some cases some have been sexually assaulted. This will work SO well — until the Terrorists hit a plane where “everyone” was searched. Then it’ll hit the fan.

Just want to get this straight:

All of the 9/11 hijacking terrorist perverts were what "religion"?

The only "religion" that is exempt from screening is?

Am I missing something??

I will never enter an airport again until all TSA workers are back on welfare where they came from.

So what you’re saying is we should accept a Marxist police state because it will prove we would be able to “make it in the military in Iraq?”

Remember that pro-abortion argument, that a "woman's body is her own"?

The left believes in the cult of the omnipotent state. In the end, there is nowhere the government can't go and nothing they can't do, provided the people are acclimatized to it.

Never again.

They already fist fight, wrestle people to the ground, feel people up, and speak unintelligibly.

Its a sure hit.

Abolish the TSA.

Let the airlines/airports handle security, with intelligence assistance from the FBI/CIA.

We will all be much better off.

I guess if you blow up things in the name of "religion", and threaten to continue to do so, you have First Amendment religious liberty in the US. Play nice, get screwed.

Too bad Allen West is only a first-term congressman. At least he knows and understands who the real enemy is, and is willing to say so. We need someone like him as our next president.
