I would just be happy keeping strangers hands off of them.
Patting someone's waistline is just so titillating.
As I said...a female agent searched her. Should this female agent and others be disciplined, including fired? Yep. Wrongdoing is always possible, I'm fairly certain that people make mistakes all the time, in every field. However, isolated incidents like this do not equal a widespread problem. And at this point, isolated incidents are all you can point to. Do you know how many flights there are daily in the U.S.? 30,000. That equals around 3 million passengers a day. This is one incident out of 900 million airline passenger trips a year.The woman's attorney, Jerry McLaughlin, said the woman, now a 23-year-old college student, believes TSA employees acted improperly after a female TSA agent pulled off the woman's top during the screening.
"It was kind of a bad situation. They didn't handle it correctly," he said. "One of our major complaints is that even after it occurred, they started making jokes about it."
So, only Islamic males are suspect? As stated, racial profiling is not an effective law enforcement strategy.I suspect some are. So what? But when the TSA skips over a man born in Yemen named Mohamad with a one-way ticket and searches and elderly woman in the name of “fairness” then the system is broken.
What do terrorists look like? You're bitching about the costs and problems associated with our current screening methods, without realizing that El Al only has to screen passengers for 40 planes, TOTAL. We do not have the manpower, or the budget, to screen using the Israeli methods. Our passenger load makes this completely impossible and absurd.I get it.
What you don’t get is that profiling looks for terrorists…not olive-skinned individuals with sheets on their heads.
lulz.At least I’m not poorly informed.
I suspect I fly 20 or 30 times as often as you do. When is the last time you set foot on a plane and went through the security screening you're bitching about? For me, it was yesterday, in SFO.If you had any idea you would be angry, too
