PITTSBURGH (KDKA) Passengers may be unhappy over long lines and enhanced security at the airports, but its a feeling shared by many at TSA.
Theres a lot more tension both by officers, fellow officers, and passengers, one Pittsburgh TSA officer told KDKAs Jon Delano in an exclusive interview.
TSA officers dont like the new aggressive pat-downs of passengers either.
I truly feel that it is morally and ethically wrong to do it, the agent noted. This does not make flying safer. Its just taking away American citizens rights. And all the horror stories at other airports only make things worse.
Everybody shudders when they hear that because they know that is not what were supposed to be doing, the agent said.
Then quit and go work at home depot
Have been through the Pittsburgh checkpoints recently. The TSA personnel are very professional and respectful.
This would be in contrast to the officious, self-important gestapo “guarding” the Kansas City airport.
“I vas chust followink orders!”
Or the Uganda crew @ Hartsfield.
TSA = Too Stupid for Arby’s
He may have many mouths to feed. I doubt if “Home Depot” is hiring or that they’d pay him $18/hr.
Pittsburgh is probably my favorite of the large airports.
They are always professional.
Well he could become a garbage man 21 dollars an hour plus all you can eat
walk off the job
It’s terrible and I have to agree with the other posters. Although it would be a sacrifice, those that understand this is wrong need to quit the TSA. My guess is all but, the Neanderthals knows this is wrong.
No kidding!!!! If TSA keeps getting away with this and the people quit fighting it, they will go farther. Just like a bully, keeps pushing and pushing, but, push back and the run with their tails betwixed their legs.
Agree with you on Pittsburgh.
It is part of the weeding process to find out who will follow any orders when they work for the Civilian Defense Force.
The Idi Amin’s of the TSA.
I rather get pat down than have the body scan. The radiation in those are really bad for you. I think any little bit can help with all the crazy terrorist out there.
The thought of DFW makes me cringe LoL
Seems like its a requirement there that TSA are muslim.
“I truly feel that it is morally and ethically wrong to do it, the agent noted. This does not make flying safer. Its just taking away American citizens rights.”
It is also criminal. So quit.
