    the TSA are quick to point out he was not detained, as they would of violated the constitution by doing so.

    Opportunistic political stunt. His pat down wasn't random. Why should others have to wait while he goes through the scanner again?

    this is not a conspiracy theory forum. do you have any proof that he attempted to smuggle something through the machines to set it off?

I did not vote for Mr Paul when he was elected, but he seems to be a great Senator so far, and wouldn't mind voting for him next election.
    although i think sometimes the tsa goes too far, i have no issues with the procedures in place. who gives a ****te if he offered to go through the scanner again? do you think it should be that way for anyone who doesn't pass the first time?

    LOL!

    The TSA violates the US Constitution very day it remains in existence.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    Strawman, who suggested he was attempting to smuggle something through?

    Sen. Rand Paul ‘detained’ by TSA in Nashville, TSA denies

    Link

    By Matthew Boyle - The Daily Caller Published: 10:16 AM 01/23/2012

    Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul’s press secretary Moira Bagley tweeted on Monday that Transportation Security Administration officials were detaining her boss in Nashville, Tenn.

    “Just got a call from @senrandpaul,” Bagley tweeted at about 10 a.m. on Monday. “He’s currently being detained by TSA in Nashville.”

    “He offered to go through again,” Stafford said in an email. “The TSA said he could only have a full body pat down. He would not consent to it. He offered to go through the scanner again. The situation is ongoing.”

    The TSA says Sen. Rand Paul “was not detained at any point” but “triggered an alarm during routine airport screening and refused to complete the screening process in order to resolve the issue.”

    “Passengers, as in this case, who refuse to comply with security procedures are denied access to the secure gate area,” the TSA adds. “He was escorted out of the screening area by local law enforcement.”

    “The passenger was screened by millimeter wave imaging technology using automated target recognition,” the TSA continues. “This technology uses the same generic image for all passengers to further protect passengers privacy. When an alarm occurs a yellow box indicates where an anomaly is. A targeted pat down is used to resolve the alarm.”

    TSA spokesman Michael McCarthy told The Daily Caller that “when an irregularity is found during the TSA screening process, it must be resolved prior to allowing a passenger to proceed to the secure area of the airport. Passengers who refuse to complete the screening process cannot be granted access to the secure area in order to ensure the safety of others traveling.”
    Article I, Section. 6.The Senators and Representatives shall receive a Compensation for their Services, to be ascertained by Law, and paid out of the Treasury of the United States. They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.

    What doesn't the TSA understand about the Constitution? The story above clearly states he was going to Washington.

    Or this saying that we shouldn't have these added security measures?
    I believe we should have some real trained experts at airports and have them watch the airports like in Israel.

    Well, first of all, he wasn't arrested. Secondly, what makes you think he was headed to or returning from Washington, DC? Now, you may say, "Yes, but he was "detained!" He wouldn't have been detained had he turned around and left the airport. Congress Critters are not immune.
