Skip to comments.New TSA Rules: Passengers Must 'Freeze on Command'?
Posted on 07/08/2012 1:34:28 PM PDT by Altariel
According to possible new TSA rules, air travelers may be compelled to "freeze" when ordered to by screeners.
The federal safety agency has yet to comment on this policy, but an airline passenger claimed agents recently practiced a drill on his wife.
"We heard a "freeze, freeze" or something like this coming from the output side of security (where my wife was), followed by further barking of commands," the man said.
"It turns out they were doing a new drill. They want all passengers to freeze on command. My wife told me later that she didn't follow this order fast enough, so the subsequent barks I heard were directed at her," he added.
Now, this anecdote has not been confirmed by the safety agency, so it should remain in the rumor zone at this point. But, considering all the crazy TSA rules, would anyone be surprised if it were true?
Could you have imagined, a decade ago, that you would be forced to submit to naked imaging just to get on an airplane? Or that young children would be groped by strangers in uniforms?

There is no compelling evidence these absurd TSA rules do anything to thwart terrorism. Just recently, the agency announced that screeners now have the right to test beverages purchased by travelers, even after the people have gone through security. How much more of this can people take?
Two months ago as I was going through the Screeners I had one telling me to do one thing and another telling me to something else. They got louder and more insistent as I shifted from one to the other. It got a little tense for a few moments.
More proof of what I have posted on FR many times: the TSA has nothing whatsoever to do with “airport security.” It is designed to condition people to behave like slaves/cattle and submit to being poked, prodded, strip searched, and any other indignity the TSA brownshirts can come up with. Airports today, shopping malls and movie theaters tomorrow. Slavery will be the new norm. “Vere are your papers? Ve haf ways of making you obey!” The TSA is already on the move. This Nazi-like agency needs to be shut down ASAP. No one in Congress (except Rand Paul) has the balls to speak out about the TSA and its abuses of our liberty.
The TSA agents should wear armbands that say TSA on them. It would be very fitting.
Perfectly put! Can I steal that?
You talking to me-—You TALKING TO ME?
The Feds are a bigger threat to these United States than any group of 7th century ragheads with fan belts wrapped around their scalps.

***I agree. Almost tagline worthy.
I remember a news article a couple of months ago about HSA buying 450 million rounds of .40 S&W.
Imagine our history; if Germany had then; 'tasers'; and drones. . .and Google.
I agree with your post #14.
‘The TSA has become the most hated alphabet agency in the U.S. in perhaps the fastest time on record. It has violated the personal rights of more people on a daily basis in my view than the IRS, DEA, and the ATF combined. Clearly, this slobbering demon child of the Department of Homeland Security is being molded for something quite terrible and grand. ‘
They should play Simon sayz.
'Strike a Pose'
All you airline travelers might want to get with the children and play a few Red Light/Green Light games before you report for passing through the TSA gauntlet. In the childs game you only lose, in TSA’s game you die! Happy flying courtesy of TSA!
Is that ‘frozen’ enough for ya?
I’ll look that up.
Here’s something interesting.
Hmmmm...would I have to “freeze” my mouth, too???
