    Which means he is accusing Rand Paul of intentionally setting the machines off.

    What doesn't the TSA understand about the Constitution? The story above clearly states he was going to Washington.
    He was not arrested. Merely denied entry to a secure area because he refused to complete the required screening process.

    “Well, I don’t know what bureaucrat manuals call it, but: an innocent American citizen who was offering to cooperate while also attempting to stop an invasive search was not allowed to proceed without complying,”

    Correction: "an innocent American citizen decided that security procedures don't apply to him, because he's IMPORTANT, DAMNIT so they should change procedures just for his special snowflake self."

    I don't think you know what the word "opportunistic" means.

    He was neither arrested nor detained. Nor questioned.

    The definition of arrested needs to be changed. If any security person from anywhere doesnt let you go, for whatever reason, they arrested you. They may not have locked you up and threw you in jail. But they sure arrested and detained your free will if you can't go anywhere or do what you want. If a cop locks someone in a room and questions them for many, many hours without the person being able to leave it should count as arrested.

    Or it could mean that upon the machine being set off, Rand Paul decided to make a big deal about it and aobut refusing the body scan to take political advantage of the oppertunity rather than simply going through the pat down or refusing to go through the pat down but not having multiple channels spreading the story all over the place immedietely following it.

    The part you didn't put in bold is the important part here. If you create the situation yourself, it isn't being opportunistic anymore.

    Therefore, the poster who used the word "opportunistic" was actually ruling out the idea that Paul deliberately set off the machine.

    There's a word for that, I think.

    Re: Rand Paul detained by TSA

    I wonder how many people who yell about the TSA pat-downs travel regularly. Calling it "fondling" is about as dishonest as one can get. The TSA is there because companies want them there. You ever notice how little noise Virgin and American make about the TSA? It's not because they don't want to be "sanctioned" or whatever, it's because the last thing any company wants is for a plane to fly into a friggin building or blow up in mid air. It's a PR nightmare. In essence the TSA fulfills a role that benefits not only customers but also travel companies and the states' own national security.

    Since when have our politicians been subjected to TSA? Well at the very least, good for Rand Paul. TSA is out of hand and should be abolished.
