    TSA is carefully avoiding racial profiling.

    Drudge has run a few reports in the last couple months that said this is coming to an airport near you.

    I'm dreading the thought of flying in and out of JFK and LAX this coming July. :wtf:

    This is how they generate demand for TSA Pre-Check and force travellers to pony up $85 for the fast-track lane.

    Why don't they just privatize airport security already and let the airlines handle their own business. This system is so fucking stupid.

    Seattle is a goddamn mess too. For whatever reason (likely an influential Congresscritter from Georgia when the TSA was created), the TSA people have to go to Atlanta for training, and the training queue is backed up. And Atlanta is the only place in the whole fucking country to do this training, apparently.

    Anyway, it costs more to fly people from Seattle to Atlanta, so... the new guys for here don't get trained.

    Because how else would the defense contractors make money selling overpriced technology designed to stop 2000-era tactics?

    It's gonna be a mess this summer. We took a trip in February and allowed for 1.5 hours to get through security and still almost missed our domestic flight. And we have "VIP" access for the security line. I couldn't imagine during peek season at a large airport.

    You have to get to Midway before 8AM or after 7PM to avoid long waits

    A few years ago when passing through London Heathrow, I put my daughter ahead of me so I can watch her go through the detector, she was about the same age and size of this girl you posted. Something signaled their security and they said that she needed extra inspection, the woman then began to go on and on about why I shouldn't fear their inspection, then I just said I understand and get on with it we need to make our connection. They proceeded to pat her down like she was 20 year old drug suspect. :facepalm:

    The handicapped kid warranted extra screening, these two flew through.

    Tthe last time we went through my daughter set off something but they didn't pat her down they patted me down. How does that make sense?
