New TSA Rules: Passengers Must 'Freeze on Command'?
Gather.com ^ | July 7, 2012 | Jim Kane

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?

Well, too bad for deaf people or people who don’t speak English. They’ll just be shot, I suppose...

It's all silly and insulting. They will push and push. They will get more and more ridiculous. They want people to freak out -- they are looking for someone at an airport to kill 3 or 4 TSA guys.

That's when they kick it into high gear. They will push us until we give them "permission" to put on the black uniforms 24/7.

If they think their little Hitler attitude will get me to “freeze” on command like a dog. I’ve got a pretty good “go die away from me” glare, and if that doesn’t work, I have a foul mouth too. And more than that...

Same here - Boycott flying until this madness stops. I have no sympathy for those who allow themselves or their child(ren) to be groped and worse. Anyone who thinks this all about keeping us “safe” are bigger fools than the TSA goons.

Gale: “Alright you hayseeds it’s a stickup! Everybody freeze. Everybody down on the ground. (Long pause)”
Hayseed: “Well, which is it Young Feller? You want I should freeze or get down on the ground? I mean to say, if’n I freeze I can’t rightly drop. And if’n I drop, I’m gonna be in motion. Y’see...”
Gale: “Shut up!”
Hayseed: “Ok then.”

Yes. Have also read Milgram in Obedience to Authority.

They are already doing this when you walk into the TSA scanners as they bark — ‘Come in with your hands up and freeze’.

It keeps getting worse, seemingly without limit, without end. Half the agencies in government should be abolished, half the taxes jettisoned and half the spending curtailed. And that’s without any consideration whatsoever given to to the matter. You could go much further. *Sigh*... Well, there’s my platform if I’m ever so lucky as to get to run for president!

You KNOW the law is not aimed at terrorists but at civilians when 90% of the weight of the provisions fall on the shoulders of innocent people and not on terrorists. We better turn this around or we will soon be whispering about the “disappeared ones,” as they do under other murderous regimes.

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 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. ‘

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!

You guys must have seen the video of the cops tazing and beating that poor guy who was in diabetic shock and refused to follow their orders after he was pulled over for driving erratically.

I can not believe the excuses dimwitted Americans make for these TSA goons.

I’ve said it before. JUST STOP FLYING! Two weeks to a month of people not fly would place all the airlines on the verge of bankruptcy. Even this administration is not foolish enough to stand by and watch that happen. The repercussions would be enormous!

Until you this happens your wives, mothers, daughters, grandmothers and children will continue to be groped and molested in front of you while you wait for your turn to be degraded and humiliated as if an male who thinks of himself as a real man hasn’t already surrender his manhood by standing by and allowing his female relations or for that matter any female to undergo such treatment.

So STOP your whining or except it:

Rape is like bad weather: if it’s inevitable, you might as well relax and enjoy it.
Clayton Williams

OR choose to do something about and STOP flying!

I’ve heard too many people, even “conservatives” repeat the mantra, “Whatever it takes” (to stay “safe”) and go through X-rays, pat downs, all robot-like. I can’t stand it, I only travel for necessity now, never pleasure.
