    Default The TSA is Evil

    The TSA frisked a 6 year old girl. What the fuck!? Fuck the TSA, and fuck these ridiculous security practices all in the name of false safety. Acts like this a wrong and need to be stopped.

    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    The child was patted down in order to resolve an issue that arose when she went through an advanced imaging technology, or body imaging machine, a TSA official said.
    Would you rather they didn't do anything about this "issue"?


    Well, I guess people who do intend to do any kind of harm wouldn't hesitate to use children for it. Just because "there's no reason to suspect her or her parents of being criminals" doesn't mean that there's no possibility of any harmful intention. This isn't about the pat-downs being right or wrong, it's just the reality at the airports thanks to some idiots who have done things in the past. Nobody likes these things but if something were to happen just because some cute little kid with crazy "parents" got away with it, then that's even worse.

    Meh. Security comes at the expense of privacy. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

    They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

    I heard old stories of Vietnam, where little children that age would have explosives strapped. sometimes a child would be abandoned and crying not knowing his purpose only later be discovered when soldier tried to console the kid.

    Why do they no longer deserve liberty? Are you a proponent of enslaving those that do not value the things that you value? Do you look upon those that do not value the thing that you do as unworthy of anything else in addition to liberty and safety? Because you might be scarier than you appear.

    D'you think the random harrassment of people in airports as it's done in the US actually gains us any measure of security?

    While they're confiscating Auntie's knitting needles in line 3, a test package with a brick of plastique is getting passed through the checkpoint down on line 1. It's absurd.

    Provides some people with a false sense of security, the world is as unsafe as its always been but the US isnt getting that illusion of invulnerability back any time soon.
