tsa #TSACatch: Any item resembling an explosive – whether it is real or not - can cause significant delays in screening, while #TSA explosives detection professionals determine if the item is a threat. This modified grenade was discovered at the Salt Lake City #SLC airport and was eventually determined to be as harmless as a fly. 2w

  •   appomacbimmer @oh_yeah_thatguyguy if only your questions could be answered. I didn't prove TSA useless, because there is no way to tell how many terrorist acts have been prevented. Maybe zero, maybe thousands. We'll never know. 3w
  •   oh_yeah_thatguyguy Fair enough @appomacbimmer . But when an agency is pit in place to violate rights, steal, and literally rape (Google TSA rape and Google TSA agent says I'm God) Maybe we should just disband them especially of they can't prove one way or the other that they are useful. 3w
  •   appomacbimmer @oh_yeah_thatguyguy I don't agree with the first half of what you said but you're entitled to your opinion. I just don't feel like we'd be that much better off without TSA. With nearly 50,000 employees any organization is bound to have bad apples. And if they really are effective and we disband then...who knows what could happen. 3w
  •   oh_yeah_thatguyguy Well they are not effective, and even Israeli airline El Al who had multiple terrorist attacks and prevented even more said the @tsa methods are ineffective and it's all security theater. The @TSA is an excuse to violate 4th & 5th amendments. Look up VPR teams on any search engine. 3w
  •   appomacbimmer @oh_yeah_thatguyguy it's VIPR and TSA rarely uses that anymore. 3w
  •   oh_yeah_thatguyguy They should be used at all, what do proms malls and kite festivals have to do with transportation security the point is time after time @TSA has yet to do anything that had anyone day "it's a good thing we had the @tsa " but I have heard numerous credible cases to disband them and we should 3w
  •   appomacbimmer TSA is part of the Department of Homeland Security. TSA and other agency's are also at football games, triathlons, dance competitions. Why? All the events I know of have to do with transportation...although indirectly. But we can disband them and go back to airline funded airport security. 3w

  •   kirwiishhh Thank you for molesting and interrogating me yesterday you pieces of crap. You made me late ON PURPOSE and made me miss my flight by FIVE FUCKING MINUTES. Questioned why I was late (not your business), why I had a different college ID than my current school (Even though I'm in grad school now), and why I had two copies of my passport. Really ?! I know, those are all signs of terrorism. Morons. But today I was checked through pre TSA because I'm low profile and a frequent flyer. Really ? I'm a 100lb girl who had school lectures, a calculator and even an intern license for my current state of education. If thats not a dead giveaway then I don't know what is. 2mon
