    Nothing short of cavity searches would stop a determined terrorist.

    That has absolutely NOTHING to do with the TSA officials and everything to do with our country's refusal to profile. They're doing their jobs. They probably think it's stupid, too. Give 'em a break.

    Nice to see people are FINALLY waking up to the government thugs that is the TSA. Its been long overdue to dissolve the TSA and let the airports handle their own security.

    Yeah, and they'll keep upping the ante until they have to do cavity searches on each passenger.

    Can you show me where you sign away your rights when you buy a ticket on Orbitz? Maybe a screen shot?

    Racial profiling is mathematically a worse choice than random screening, strange as that may sound.

    A TSA Supervisor wanted him to return to the checkpoint. Nuff said. TSA rules.

    Blame government regulations, not the poor guys who are enforcing them at risk of losing their jobs.

    You don't sign away your rights. When you purchase a ticket, you are legally bound to follow security procedures. If you don't, you don't get on the airplane. By law, it's part and parcel of flying. You don't have to submit to a search. They're not taking away your "rights." But if you don't voluntarily submit to a search, you don't fly. Last time I looked, "the right to fly" wasn't guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution. Screen shot?

    I agree with you.

    No, purchasing a ticket doesn't "bind you" to security procedures, either. You're only bound to follow security procedures if you wish to access the gate, where a boarding pass is often but not always part of the screening process.

    At no point in the process did this guy consent to follow security procedures. Not in purchasing his ticket, not in entering the airport, not in showing "intent" to board by getting in the security line. The first and only opportunity he had was when they were actually being performed. At that point he declined and there was NOTHING they could do about it because he was not "bound" or "required" in any way to submit.

    The $10,000 threat is simply a scare tactic. Remember the guy in NJ that ducked under the security line, shut down the Terminal for six hours, delayed 100 flights, cancelled 27 and stranded 16,000 passengers? Total fine: $658 plus 100 hours of community service. That's for an actual breach.

    The guy returned his ticket, and left the agreement

    I'm not blaming the people doing their jobs, just the bs regulations.
