If they screw up airport security, with political correctness hampering efficient efforts, what else will agencies botch when we really need help. This is my opinion and I present it as such. The efforts by TSA relate preparedness as it's a great indicator of how government reacts to a threat. After initial, heavy handed and decisive response, the bureaucrats, political appointees, and careerists take over and botch everything based on the need for 'eye wash' within the realm of political correctness. Now for some facts, each one followed by an opinion in brackets: People threatened with termination, who resign from other agencies and departments sometimes wind up in TSA. [It's a mystery to us...almost if they went out of their way to hire them because they sure didn't do a back ground check of any value, otherwise more of us would have know about it.] Passengers and crew members are better at catching problems for several reasons...[One being it's their asses on the line. Passengers and crew members caught thing security missed. TSA staffers should be regularly pulled off their posts and be put aboard the planes for which they screened passengers.] TSA screeners have done inappropriate things with the body scans. They've ridiculed and scoped out sex organs. An Air Marshall, rungs above them, used his issue weapon to commit rape on a woman. [In my opinion, their screening of employees leaves much to be desired.] As with prisons and jails, most staff don't want to do strip searches and pat searches, [however, alternative life style individuals volunteer at a higher rate. While it's inappropriate and unfair that shapely attractive women and harmless looking people (like those accompanied by children) are checked more frequently, there's an almost pedophilic preference for pubescent girls and boys, while health, Middle Eastern males are seldom, if ever, checked.] Prisons and Jails generally do pat searches that are much less invasive than the TSA ones. [If an inmate got searched like the TSA searches, he'd have a grievance, a lawsuit, and that staff member would justifiably be put on admin leave, pending investigation.] The ones which I considered utterly ridiculous was years ago, I was pulled aside for further scrutiny, by a woman who I saw was nervous. She selected me, a father with then three children going to Disneyland over a group of athletic Middle Eastern males, who walked by smirking. Another time I was thoroughly pat searched, and while that young man was professional, his pat search was more invasive than that done on any criminal. [I've been taught and have been taught to do pat searches and this would have been inappropriate under any circumstance...as a pat search.] This is all opinion: This is all eye wash and nonsense and we're sheeple for not correcting this. The Israelis do it right. They focus on the profile...if 100% of your terrorists are Islamic males from 18 to 45, then you focus your searches PRIMARILY on Islamic males from 18 to 45...you don't MISFOCUS your searches on stacked blonds and others. It's not World War II veterans who are Medal of Honor recipients or shy, pretty 13 year old girls who are hijacking planes, it's the sort who through political correctness waltz through security screening because they're obviously Middle Eastern males, 18 to 45.
