TSA Agent At Body Scanner: “Heads Up, Got A Cutie For Ya”
Via Twitter, another example of TSA abuse:
Last week, one of my flying partners (Captain with Skywest) was going through security at DEN with his 18 year daughter. As his daughter approached the detector, the TSO working the NoS said on his headset, “heads up, got a cutie for you.” He then confronted the TSA clerk with what he said and that neither of us are going through the NoS. The TSA clerk said you must have misunderstood me.
He said pat-down was pretty evasive, and his daughter felt uncomfortable.
He is taking it up with Skywest, with this behavior. Normally, crews there go through a different screening area, but since he was with his daughter, he got to see the TSA clerks at their finest in Denver
I’m sure that this is put what example of what’s going on out there.
Honestly, this strikes me as a good issue for Republicans to take up when they take control of Congress. Security is important, obviously, but it strikes me that what we’re doing in airports right now isn’t really providing all that much security at the cost of inconvenience, embarrassment, and invasions of privacy.
