Skip to comments.Are TSA workers scanned and patted each time they pass through checkpoints?
Posted on 11/21/2010 4:15:33 AM PST by DH
As I was watching TSA searchers violating free citizens rights by having them physically violated as they went through the screening process, and the fact that now we are going to give waivers to Pilots and special searches for Molsems, it dawned on me that the TSA personnel themselves are totally exempt from the process as the enter and exit the search area.
Up to now, I have not heard one soundbite about them. Stop and think about it. Here we have the lower echelon of the workforce that are at most risk of criminal behavior (minimum wage uneducated workers) freely coming in and out of a "secure" area each time they enter their workplace. In the morning, after lunch, breakfast, and supper, and many other times throughout the day, they enter and exit the area.
Now, with that in mind shouldn't we all demand that ALL TSA workers be screened EVERY time they enter the "SECURE AREA?"
I think that if they had to undergo the same ridiculous searches themselves things might change simply because they would not like it....nothing more....and many would simply quit rather than be searched many times a day.
We need to press the issue so that they can be "happy campers" just like the sheeple who now are humiliated each time they board a plane.
Push for mandatory daily cavity searches on all TSA employees!!!
Send them back to WalMart!
I wonder if the TSA has a DADT policy for their screeners? Or can a openly gay TSA screener do pats downs (of children, ugh)? Inquiring minds what to know....
Airport security is all show. Meant to make the airports look secure so people will buy tickets.
They treat people like criminals for “safety” and then hire a muslim to clean the planes.
I suppose there should be US citizens who pat down the TSA employees every time they move in or out of the “secure area”. Of course, to give complete security there should be several layers of this so you might have several tens of millions of citizens employed. TSA patted down by TSA2 patted down by TSA 3 patted down by TSA4 and so forth. Eventually we would have full employment in the country. This would be pure genius from our dear loeader, nobama and his minions.
Reply to self: I also think that ALL EMPLOYEES who service, maintain, fuel, and load baggage along with ANYONE who is on the flight-line, should be searched too. After all, they are in the secure area of the airport too.
Get them all!
Karma is overdue.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
TSA employees are now enemies of the people. They have acted as agents for the fascists in power, with the weakness of their kind , in abrogation of the 4th amendment of the Constitution.
As such enemies, they now will become set targets for those who are dedicated to the COnstutution.This may be a necessary evolution.
But we must remember that the president is responsible for these crimes. Yes it is a crime to violate the 4th amendment rights of any citizen and it is a crime to violate the Civil Rights of any American.These are hate crimes against Americans.
Now Obama’s TSA, Obama himself, and Janet Napolitano as well as Eric Holder MUST PAY!They are enemies of the people!!!!!
Demand their resignations immediately!!!! March on Washington once more if we have to!!!
Impeach Obama, Holder and Napolitano. Disband the TSA!!!
We’ve got marxists in government deliberately increasing tensions between different groups. Now they’re pitting the people against the TSA.

Is this a threat against anyone who works for TSA? I’d like to know because I have a family member who works for TSA.

I have an issue with the whole Department of HOMELAND Security. Homeland sounds very fascist to me.
I’ve dealt with the TSA professionally. Incompetents who are more concerned with their ego’s than with yours or mine safety.
The TSA people are just doing as they are told. The people needing the treatment are congress and POTUS.
"There are now two Americas.
One has your elected rulers and our Emperor and me
And includes all foreign Moslems and undocumented aliens.
We, and they, are exempt from ObamaCARE and TSA-imposed breast and genital,
examinations and nude pictures we take at our will.
The other consists of you bastard American scum who deserve
only one thing after you give us your money."
“The TSA people are just doing as they are told. “
If someone told me to stip search a little boy I would refuse. I don’t believe doing so is necessary or prudent.
I want to see the screeners scanned before they leave work.
Stolen items from checked luggage? Cash and or jewelry lifted from handbags going thru the scanner?
“Stolen items from checked luggage? Cash and or jewelry lifted from handbags going thru the scanner?”
Hey thats their benefits program you are talking about.
You have kind of hit on a very touchy subject that no one (politicians, media, pundits, etc) really want to discuss.
The TSA workforce has over twice as many African-Americans working for it as are in the civilian workforce at large (22% vs. 10.5%)
The TSA was demanded by the Democrats in Congress to be a "make work" program for unskilled people, many of whom are from the inner city (whose population centers are close to major airports).
In my case, 90% of the time I have been singled out for "special treatment" by the TSA, it has been at the hands of a very overweight black woman who was incredibly rude and hostile. The "agents" behavior was appalling in every instance. Had our races been reversed, I probably could have contacted the Southern Poverty Law Center and sued for "discrimination."
Also, in supreme irony, the TSA employment website lists a "Office of Civil Rights" page. Oh, it is not about YOUR Civil Rights.
This is about "Diversity."
"Our Office of Civil Rights and Liberties ensures all employees and the public are treated in a fair and lawful manner without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, disability, sexual orientation, parental status or genetic information. With a zero tolerance for harassment, illegal discrimination and retaliation, our office helps the agency recognize and respect the social and cultural backgrounds of our employee and customers. These efforts ultimately improve our nation's security."
I guess they mean perverted Transsexuals.
There. Feel better about your "security" now?
Also, here is some information for Freepers here.
We have been led to believe these scanners are not "saving information." That is an out and out lie. They HAVE to save the scans because they cannot use this potential evidence in court to prosecute you if the scans are not saved. Find the media report on the scanners themselves, and you will see USB ports all over these things.
Secondly, we have been led to believe the scanners are all "blurred" out and can only see negative images only. This also is a lie.
The scanners are fully capable of full color, full image, and full clarity. If you don't believe me, copy an scan, paste it into Microsoft Paint, click image, and inverse the colors.
This is run by the DNC-al Qaeda of USA.

Don't touch my junk.
Oh silly me! Should have known grand larceny was a job’s benefit.
Last time we flew out of CVG (cincinnati) the screener stopped the belt bringing stuff into the scanner and made my husband open his carry on case. OMG, the toothpaste was over the allowed size limit. They confiscated the toothpaste.
“I want to see the screeners scanned before they leave work.”
Very good idea! While I was being searched in the Orlando airport, I had one of the TSA agents steal 2 credit cards from my billfold that was being searched. It was impossible to tell who it was because I was in a pat-down search while my billfold was in the x-ray machine.
The discovery was not made until I was in flight and tried to use the card to purchase a mixed drink.
I wrote my senior thesis on Airport Security- America vs. Europe. I did extensive research on the TSA. When the agency switched the FAA to being the TSA, people were required to have a high school diploma or equivalent. They had to scrap that as about 15% did not which would lead to a loss of employees. They changed to requirement to experience on the screening equipment.
Look up Milgram Experiment. The TSA workers are being dehumanized in a very similar manner. Look for the TSA to spread their power to other facets of law enforcement since they already have an obedient workforce.
Time has come for refusing to allow 4th Amendment rights to be trampled. Friday my 52 year old wife was selected at J
Hobby Airport for pat down on breasts crotch and rear. She just finished chemo three months ago and had double masectomy breast reconstruction last month, is very tender. Out in the open the TSA screener pulled down her clothes to look at scars and pulled open her pants to look down back and front. An octogenarian white lady with a cane was right behind as next victim.
Meanwhile a large family Muslims including men in their 30s ans several women in hijab full bee keeper outfit got whisked by express in the adjacent lane with no pat down.
I complained to the TSA supervisor that my wife’s rights under 4th Amendment to the Constitution from TSAs unreasonable search and violation of right to privacy.
My wife was weeping and shaking and sobbing. She could not be consoled.
I thought this was America but it turns out we live in a Gulag.
Since all federal funding originates in the House, Republicans will solidify their majorities by cutting off all funding to TSA.
The will receive the enduring loyalty of millions and, in the process, continue to decimate and eliminate Democrats.
TSA: "Our Office of Civil Rights and Liberties ensures all employees and the public are treated in a fair and lawful manner without regard to race, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, disability, sexual orientation, parental status or genetic information. With a zero tolerance for harassment, illegal discrimination and retaliation, our office helps the agency recognize and respect the social and cultural backgrounds of our employee and customers. These efforts ultimately improve our nation's security."
These are fighting words in the current political climate.
There is very little tolerance for this type of heinous political correctness vomited up by liberals.
“I want to see the screeners scanned before they leave work.
It would be good to have them scanned when they report to work as well. The last time I flew I was going through security during shift change. The TSA agents walked past the queue of average citizens waiting to be scanned and bypassed the scanner to report to their stations.
“Yes, the TSA is a Dem make work program.”
TSA was formed in 2001 under the George W. Bush administration.
OSHA and the EPA were initiatives of the Richard Nixon administration.
Unfortunately the current bureaucratic monster state is the creation of both political parties.
Its not a threat. It is the way things are evolving. The TSA, and each one working for them have been put into the category of eemies of the people by our the so called president of the United States, Janet Napolitano and Eric Holder.
This is very clear, that TSA workers have been duped into becomeing the fascist brown shirts in blue of the Obama liberal fascist movement. TSA is committing crimes in violation of the 4th amendment rights of Americans.
Your family memeber needs to quit that job and get out, because I can assure you, the shite is about to hit the fan.
I would quit that job in a heart beat. I could not work for an organization that commits crimes of assault against Americans. Maybe your famuly member can.In the end what will happen will not be any where worth the money, you can count on it.
Its not your family members fault that this is happening. He or she is being used by the Obama fascist movement.If one tolerates that usage, one has become an agent of fascism when, as in Germany in the 1930s, so many said”just following orders.” In this instance that excuse is just not good enough.TSA workers should be quitting “en mass” for being required to commit crimes against Americans.It becomes your family memebers faukt if they stay on that criminal enterprise now called Obama’s TSA.
Hey, I am all for it!
That was cited in the original post.
Work in the TSA? Get out now!!!
Obamas blue shirted TSA are in truth, Obamas version of fascist Brown Shirts, who now systematically dismantle and usurp the 4th amendment rights of the people.
Heads are exploding on the DU site. They have to confront the fact that they voted for the implimentation of fascism by Obamas TSA,justified by Obamas politically correct non profiling, and they have to confront the fact they THEY are responsible for their leg tingly vote,
Elections have consequences.:
You never take a mothers baby away from her, its against everything we stand for (I thought).
I copied and paste some of this poor mothers story, it needs to be told.
He then told me, Im going to have to pick him up to inspect him.
I rolled my eyes and sternly told him Its his pacifier clip that went off, cant you just run that back through the belt and let us go. We are going to miss our flight.
The female TSA agent, who had been standing there the entire time said to me, You need to adjust your attitude and do as you are told.
The male TSA agent repeated, Im going to have to pick him up to inspect him.
I handed him my son.
I handed him my son and he walked away with my child.
My eyes welled up with tears, I stood up from my chair and I asked the female TSA agent, Where is he going? Where is he taking my child? Why is he leaving?
Jackson, while being whisked away looked at the male TSA agent awkwardly and repeated no no no no.
I started crying.
The female TSA agent did not answer me.
Panic set in. My hands began to shake. My body was sweating. My breath was short and my heart was racing.
They had taken my child and not told me.
Jackson was out of my eye sight.
I could not see my son.
Now sobbing, I repeated my questions to the female TSA agent.
She told me Maam, were trying to be nice to you. We dont know which one of you went off in the metal detector. Stay here so I can search you.
But my son where is my son? I asked over and over again.
The female TSA agent called a second female TSA agent over as she began to search me. Apparently the second female TSA agent could hear me protesting and asking for my son.
Maam you need to calm down or Im going to have to involve the authorities, she told me.
Now I was pissed.
Horrified. Terrified. Enraged.
You fucking get the authorities, I told the female TSA agent while the other continued to wand me and forced me to unbutton my jeans because the button beeped when she went over my abdomen with her wand.
You get the goddamn authorities right the fuck now and tell them to GIVE ME MY SON, I said.
I began to black out. I knew I was having a full on panic attack. I feared passing out.
Should we take our 50 person Kung Fu school on a flight to San Francisco? We all can refuse the scan and when the groping starts, defend ourselves according to the right of self defence.
And I can tell you this, there wouldn’t be one Blue shirt left standing.
That would create a constitutional challenge to these violations of our 4th amendment rights, all of us would be arrested and charged.We would submit peacefully to arrest.
RECORD EVERYTHING !
When there is no line the TSA people should be continually searching each other to keep their skill up.
Problem is, they take your camera and cellphone from you
“I’d like to know because I have a family member who works for TSA”.
I personally didn’t read it as a direct threat. However, this is how I see it: TSA is now being put in the position of being terrorists. They are terrorizing people. How else can you justify a TSA employee humiliating a breast cancer survivor, a bladder cancer survivor or man-handling a little child until they are in tears. The response from the employees “I am only doing my job” falls on deaf ears for the people who have been searched like this and for many Americans. With this administration, I fear we are becoming a nation of SIDES. You either support and promote socialist agenda or you fight it. Plain and simple. You are either a soldier for the government or you love your country. History tells us that this has happened before. Will citizens be asked to round up other citizens, report if they have a garden, report if they are meeting in groups? If that is their respective “job”, do you give them a pass? Just a thought.
I laughed at this guy for taking his clothes off until I saw he was arrested. Also, read the comments...
Probably the same Sam Wolanyk:
Damn good retort!
No doubt that there are some decent TSA people, from personal experience they sure seem to be in a minority as most have an “in yo face” attitude.
I too think this current situation has become somewhat a payback from the nobama libs. A showdown is coming and nobama will lose in more ways than one.
Those last three images are photoshop fakes generated from a nude image of a young woman, processed to falsely appear to be a revealing Xray.
Yeah, well. You CAN’T take your camera and use it when it counts. They have confiscated them in the tubs going through the x-ray machines!
