TSA Screeners Once Again Prove Ignorance Over Checkpoint Photo Policy

 

Transportation Security Administration screeners once again proved they are ignorant of the TSA policy that allows passengers to videotape the checkpoint process.

And it is getting tiresome considering the TSA recently reiterated this right.

The latest incident took place in Baltimore. The videotape was uploaded on July 10.

The action starts at 1:24 when a woman is videotaping the checkpoint process, waiting for her husband to walk through.

A TSA supervisor confronts her, telling her she is not allowed to videotape the checkpoint.

But she continues to videotape, asking him for a document that confirms it is not allowed.

He tells her he doesn’t have the time to show her, but will gladly call police and then have her removed from the airport.

At 3:16 in the video, a second TSA screener storms up and tells her to stop videotaping, but she continues to do so.

When she continues to question their authority, the second TSA screener tells her she is allowed to videotape on the other side of the metal detectors but not once she is inside the checkpoint area.

That, of course, is not true.

When her husband finally makes it through the checkpoint, a TSA screener then demands his boarding pass and identification to make a report because he had asked if his penis would be groped in a pat-down.

“The questions you were asking, I found particularly disturbing,” the TSA screener tells him.

But not nearly as disturbing as them abusing their power as TSA screeners.
