I applied for a job with the TSA,part time,while trying to get my acupuncture practice going.
I would have ended up at Kennedy Airport.
I took the tests,and had my interview. One incident at the office,made me change my mind,despite needing the money very badly.
They are truly ,a bunch of buffoons.
Especially at Kennedy

Miss me?

i agree the TSA does go wayyy too far
but that being said, if all u have to do is cry to "skip" being searched, i could smuggle anything onto a plane... eitherway, its a stick situation  :huh:

I think they go too far.  I bet people avoid flying to the US because of their tactics.   But 9/11 gave us the Patriot Act.

TSA Confiscates 4 Guns a Day



The Transportation Security Administration said  it picked up 1,306 guns at airport checkpoints last year.

That’s four guns a day. And that doesn’t include the spear guns and bombs.

  Last week alone the TSA confiscated a live mortar  bomb, heavy duty  firecrackers, three stun guns, signal flares and a jar of dead snakes.   Two weeks ago, TSA agents found, yes, a spear gun  and 24 loaded  firearms in passenger luggage....................................

TSA Confiscates More Than 1,000 Guns From Airplane Passengers in 2011



Transportation Security Administration officers have confiscated more  than 1,000 guns that were discovered by security personnel as  passengers traveled through airport security screenings so far this  year, the head of the TSA said.

“More than 10 years after the Sept. 11 attacks, people are still  trying to bring deadly weapons into the cabin of an airplane,” TSA  administrator John Pistole said at George Washington University’s  Homeland Security Policy Institute.

“On Tuesday, just two days ago, we detected nine guns passengers had  in their carry-on bags at various checkpoints around the country.”  Pistole said.

Pistole showed several slides of drugs and weapons that passengers were attempting to bring or smuggle on board aircraft.............................

That's one of the most ridiculous things I've ever read on here. I know cops, am good friends with some, and I can't say I've ever seen the slightest bit of anything that you've mentioned in them. Most cops are good, and deserve respect. Don't generalize people because it makes you sound ignorant, to put it nicely (like an idiot, to be honest).

We can all only speak from our own experiences, but all the cops I have ever known well enough to talk about it became cops by default. They didn't know what to do with their lives, so they hit the military after they finished high school. After the military, still not knowing what to do with their lives, they applied for the job that paid the most for their qualifications - police officer.

In my life, I've met exactly ONE person whose actual life's goal was to be in law enforcement (and that person wanted to be a Fed). Colorado's post might have been a little harshly worded, but it's probably not completely off the mark...

Whatever the reasoning is for becoming a cop is irrelevant, they still protect people, no matter how corny that sounds. Most people don't amount to what they dream of being. Law enforcement is just another field of work.

I disagree somewhat with that view (unless you count the deterrent effect of their sheer presence). I believe the job was once to maintain peace and has evolved into collecting revenue for the government.

Well, you posted examples of TSA seizing dangerous things. I'm making an assumption, but it seems that you did so to support the idea that TSA methods are working. If they confiscated these dangerous things by squeezing peoples' junk, making them take their shoes off, or pouring out liquids, you've definitely got a point.

If, on the other hand, they confiscated these dangerous things using the same methods that would have found them pre-9/11 (metal detectors on people and xrays of bags), to me that would argue that their added intrusive activities are pointless.

Yes I do, is there something wrong with me having my own opinion?

Anyone can have their's also, and I can respect that......

I  just wanted to point out that yes, they have and do find " stuff " as many people try to say they do not....


I also just hate the over dramatised 1000 times things like " squeezed someones junk "......But hey, I guess that is also someones opinion, problem is, they do not squeeze someones junk.... :no:



It is really simple, and not being rude.....If you do not like it, do not fly....It is a choice that anyone get's to make.

If you do not mind it, fly all you want, that is a choice anyone get's to make.
