Didn't they say in a video they pat downs are not to be done for age under 12?

Also, fuck the TSA. I cancelled my trip. N way I'm subjecting myself to institutionalized rape unless she is a damn supermodel and swallows.

I can be flexible if there's a good meal in the equation.

Really? You're doing to deny yourself a personal experience due to this horseshit?

There is no allowance for age.

Been to the USA 20+ times by plane. Had my share of abuse. Will go to less anal countries. Or drive.

RocketBlender
BAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Less anal countries. nice.

Most of the "Wah wah wah this is disgusting why would they pat down a toddler/old lady/wheelchair amputee" people just think that only brown people should be subjected to these horrors.

There's a good academic paper on this subject, basically explaining how easy it is to get things through security if you know that certain passengers will never be searched.
Smellvin
There are also good academic papers that state how much better dogs are at detecting explosives than these new machines that cost 0K a pop. It's also so obvious that no papers need to be written on how much cheaper dogs are.

Of course, I'm sure some senator/congresscritter used to run/is best friends with the guy who runs the company that makes the body scanning machines; common sense doesn't apply when you can use security theater to enrich yourself based on peoples' irrational fears.

phalsebob
No. Most of the "Wah wah wah this is disgusting why would they pat down a toddler/old lady/wheelchair amputee" people just think this is illustrative of how paranoid, xenophobic, and otherwise fucking retarded anti-terror measures have become.

This needs a 'why the terrorists won' tag.

takewithfood
I'll admit, it's tricky. There are stories about car bombs being allowed through checkpoints because there were children in the vehicle. People that horrible are out there.

But I'm not sure this is really the solution. Airport security feels so uneven to me. We pat down toddlers for Spider-Man underoo-bombs, but anyone can get on the subway or a train without so much as a glance.

There needs to be a happy medium between tightening up security and "letting the terrorists win". This does not feel like a happy medium to me.

IrishWhiskey
Claiming that most people who point out the irrational aspects of TSA security theater support racial profiling if foolish, insulting, and wrong. Nobody here has said anything along those lines.

There are tons of good academic papers pointing out explaining how easy it is to get things through security regardless of the procedure used, because it costs hundreds of millions and worldwide enforcement to unreliably stop one method of smuggling on a weapon, but nothing at all for terrorists to shift methods or targets.

Richmond
Smellvin's right, by the way. The body scanner manufacturers are/were paying the former head of Homeland Security.

I think brown people should punch TSA employees in the face for touching their junk, as should white people, yellow people, red people, blue people, Betazoids, Klingons, camels, hyenas, and, especially, straw men.

Hooker
Wait, wait. Why is this illustrative of xenophobia, phalsebob?

spikestoyiu
The only problem I have with TSA agents touching my junk is that they're probably going to hit on me afterward.

In Cena-Mark's absence I will show my support for racial profiling.

So far all of the terrorists attacking our planes have been of middle eastern or African descent. When an 80 year old nun or a 3 year old kid from Wisconson blows up a plane then sure, strip search them all. Until then, why are we looking up nuns skirts and down kids pants?

IrishWhiskey
Short answer: No they haven't. They have been African, Middle-Eastern, Hispanic and Caucasian. That encompasses such a broad spectrum of what people look like, you cannot reasonable eliminate any but a tiny percentage of the population through such profiling.

More importantly, the attackers are united by an ideology, not a racial connection, so there's no point basing it on that characteristic. We've seen in the past that terrorists simply adapt their tactics to the vulnerabilities, and Israel has had to adjust their profiling to include women, children, the elderly, and people of all races for exactly that reason.

Finally, this level of scrutiny is a punishment and suspension of liberty, and enacting it based on race is a fundamental attack on our democratic principles without a corresponding increase in our security. As I mentioned in a prior video, the most common factor in American foreign terrorist attacks is gender, yet for obvious reasons, lawmakers are more interested in discriminating on the darkness of skin.

IrishWhiskey
Also while you specified "attacks on planes", domestic terrorist attacks on other targets include pretty much all races, and there's no realistic reason why someone who blows up a building or plants pipe bombs won't choose to target a plane if the option is available. The TSA doesn't just exist for Al-Qaeda. The basic rule of counter terrorism to prepare for the upcoming threat, not to simply respond to the last attack.

This wouldn't be a problem if we all loosened up a little and went nude.
MissLadyArtemis
Agreed. Five stars for everyone who is nude.

catpenis27
My only question is WHY they would do this to a 3 yr old. Like, it has to be based on some kind of number system or something. For example search every third person. I can't imagine that he was actually selected for any other reason. They totally wave that magnet thing over his wenis too.
La Loco
You know how much explosives you can pack into a 3yr old's body? Alcada probably knows.
Hay Belly
Think about packing things into 3 year olds a lot don't you?

La Loco
No, but I do think allot about making stupid comments. You know that goes right?

Enjoy
I declined an x-ray to see what the new rub would be like. It was a full patdown but not completely thorough. He felt around my package but didn't reach under my balls. I'm not sure if I could have hidden something strapped to my taint or not. I bet an old man with really saggy balls could hide a brick of C4 behind his ballsack and the patdown would miss it.

Anyway the terrorists have clearly won.
JimL2
Your taint? You're still thinking small. You know that drug mules don't usually tape their cargo to the outside of their body, right?

JimL2
Not to mention that there are often more people crammed into the lines outside TSA checkpoints than there are on any one plane. Combine that with a lingering biological agent, rather than a one-shot explosion, and you've just routed the entire system.

Hopefully none of the terrorists are smarter than you, I guess.

ShiftlessRastus
They read the profiling memo wrong. The terrorists wear the diaper on their heads.
James Woods
I loled and learned something about myself. It's not a good thing.

Solution: We should all agree to start loudly moaning with feigned (or real) sexual delight every time someone insists on patting one of us down.

I would love to see some TSA employee sue for sexual harassment because someone responded in a sexual way to having their genitals fondled.
oswaldtheluckyrabbit
just wear a kilt commando-style
IrishWhiskey
Of course that'll just bother minimum wage TSA employees who have no control over the policy and allow the lobbyists greater chances to sell multimillion dollar groping machines through Chertoff.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for it both as a protest and to try and usher in a fashion style that involves more comfort and freedom of movement. But these decisions long ago stopped being about security or common sense; its all about the money.

StanleyPain
Ignoring, of course, that one of the newest tactics of terrorists is to either put the explosives in a piece of baggage or simply sew it into clothing where it would be undetectable except to dogs.
Jet Bin Fever
It was the kids shifty eyes and mispronunciations that tipped off the brave men and women.
