Common TSA - Don't be a JERK!!

WOW

Body Scanner Operator Caught Masturbating at Colorado Airport
Article here:

http://www.dailysquib.co.uk/?c=124&a=2389

"What do you want to do, get blown up by a goddamn Arab at 30,000 feet or we get to see your private parts? It's up to you, the ball's in your park," head of the TSA's scanning department, Rodney Schroeder, told CNN.

Now is your chance to get all of those body modifications you wanted!

Actually had a discussion with my colleagues today about this: go for the scan or go for the pat down? I'm going for the pat down!

Re: Common TSA - Don't be a JERK!!

I can't find the original CNN article about it... I wanted to find the source of that quote. Either way, I'd like to refuse both the pat down and the body scan. I don't like either one.

Maybe this is Satire, maybe its real. It doesn't really matter that much when it boils down to one thing: invasion of privacy in the extreme.

Heck, not even my OBGYN knows me that well!

Re: Common TSA - Don't be a JERK!!

The TSA new regs are retarded, but I don't know, it's not that big a deal. My friend went through it and she said it's not that bad. She passed on the xray and they just sent over some lady to pat her down and it was pretty quick and they don't rub on your junk really at all. They pat up your legs, waist, the underwire of your bra, and your arms/shoulders and send you on your way.

It's not like they are full on cupping your crotch and giving you a reach around... Haha

Re: Common TSA - Don't be a JERK!!

The only times I've been presented with the scanner, I've accepted it and not received the alternative pat down.

Tomorrow night I'm flying out to my son's house for Turkey Day, and I'm on the horns of a dilemma. My wife has been so damn busy with her non-profit, riding her horse, going to meetings, etc. that she hasn't been able to give me all the time I need.

So what do you think? If I requested the pat down, would I be disregarding the needs of those in line behind me who were late for their flights?

And is there a time limit on the pat down? If its not quite long enough, is there an option for requesting another minute so that you don't experience pat down interruptus?

Bill, I think if you want the full effect, you should request a pat down, and tell them you wish to have the supervising tsa official do the pat down because you want it done right... And tell them not to be stingy.

OK, thanks.

I'll tell you how it works out.

Oh, one other question. Is there an option to waive the right to a same-sex patter? And then can you look around and express a preference?

That would be pretty great to flip that on them. Tell them that you are incredibly scared of men touching you and your require a female to search you or you will have panic attacks and go into blind rages... See how that fares.
