The Paranoid Guide to Better Living: TSA Groping Hits a New Low - Page 3
"If I was present & it was appropriate, there'd be no problems. The moment it crosses a line into inappropriate, there'd be probs!" - @PMS_Aloma
"Only reason someone should be in my kid's pants is that they're a caretaker and changing dirty diapers." - @krissy314
"I let my kids play naked in the yard. I'm kidding. Fuck no you will not touch my child." - @calittle
The bottom line is that since 2001, and especially since the new groping and scanner rules, TSA has established itself as a fucking joke of an agency. Are they keeping us safer? Perhaps. Are their methods of going about it a bit on the antiquated and moronic side? Hell yeah. I agree with the scanners, I think they should be less - visual - more like the walk through scanners we saw in Total Recall (pictured on the right,) rather than one at a time. We have the technology, they just aren't applying it right.
However, random pat downs of travelers need to stop. The only way to stop that is by profiling, if it looks like a duck... it seems to work in countries like Israel. Israeli security agents don't rely on tech or pat downs by morons with grade school educations. They rely on trained agents looking for body language indicators, tone and so on. True profiling. That won't work in the United States because our government is a bunch of sissies when it comes to considering anything that might "offend" a particular group.
To put it bluntly, we're doing it wrong.
It's time for the United States government and the TSA to get off the Politically Correct horse and start running this country like they give a shit, rather than out of fear. Otherwise this will never change and we'll soon find that not only is it ineffective, but contributing to the downfall of our society as we know it. Treat your citizens like criminals, and criminals they shall become. Paranoia out.
