TSA Kicks Woman Off Flight For Bad Attitude

A TSA screener admitted to a woman traveling through Houston Airport that she was prevented from boarding her flight for retaliatory reasons as punishment for a bad attitude rather than any genuine security threat, after the woman refused to allow TSA agents to test her drink for explosives.

The audio and video in the clip above is scratchy, but the woman is heard saying, “Let me get this straight, this is retaliatory for my attitude, this is not making the airways safer it’s retaliatory.”

“It pretty much definitely is,” the TSA screener responds.

The incident began when the woman refused to allow TSA agents to carry out a controversial policy where they test drinks for explosives that are purchased by passengers after they have already passed through security.

I was flying out of Manchester (MHT) airport in New Hampshire and I had to endure a complete body groping because I didnt' want to go through the radiation scanners.

Upon being thoroughly groped from head to toe by a creepy looking guy with plastic gloves on, I approached a woman sitting behind a desk looking very official.

I jokingly as her, "Hey, have you guys ever heard of the Fourth Amendment!?!?!" She got really wide eyed and tried to stare me down when she said "It isn't party of my job-description to be familiar with that!"

These people are literally the scum of th earth and need to be fired.

Priniciple over Party!

If everyone would start

If everyone would start pounding their senators to support bills S3302 and S3303 it might help, that is if you have not already done so. These two bills would give a traveler a "Bill of Rights" and turn security back over to the airports! Both bills are currently still in the Comittee of Commerce, Science and Transpotation and will likely stay there if we don't start raising a fuss.

I have seen

A few of those TSA clowns walking around in their blue clown shirts. They are either desperate people, dumb, or pedophiles and sadists.

So now airport bar keepers are terrorists.

Of course, being terrorist TSA agents project their psyche on the innocent.

Government promotes this demented behavior.

Government is not a necessary evil. It is necessarily evil.

Free includes debt-free!

"is dis woman serious? she

"is dis woman serious? she don't talk to me like that, oh no. betta show sum respeck."

The Problem With Sheep

Methinks some of them bleat too much. She must be a Romney supporter who still believes she's an individual. "American exceptionalism" applies to the conforming collective, not her.
Silly rabbit.
I see the TSA as a bizarre form of justice. The consequence of terrorizing innocent people in foreign countries is for americans to receive a small taste of it themselves in the form of the police state. Yup. It's well deserved.

As I recall Ron Paul's solution...

why is the government charging the citizens to protect Delta's airplane? The airlines need to be in charge of their own security.

Silence isn't always golden....sometimes it's yellow.

Airlines in Charge of Safely Transporting from Place to Place?

Who ever heard of such a crazy idea !?

Seriously though, that is the best way to do it. If we made airlines strictly liable for all damages caused by their planes crashing and to persons and cargo on them, then they would have the business incentive to take whatever steps are necessary to accomplish their task of safely getting from point A to point B. And since an airline can impose whatever safeguards/restrictions it wants, no one's rights are infringed, since it is all a matter of voluntary contract: "If you want to fly on our plane, you have to agree to...(whatever)." I am sure the airlines would take only the steps really necessary to ensure safe flights and cut out all unnecessary expense and hassles. In my opinion, this is the way airline security should be handled.

"The more laws we make, the more snares we lay to entrap ourselves."

That looks like the makings of a pretty good lawsuit:

Everyone needs to just stop flying so the airlines go belly up and then maybe things will change.
I will never ever get on another plane.

I love my country
I am appalled by my government


There should be protests in every airport across the country...

What about 10K folks showing up at Boston's Logan airport and protesting?
People need to read Patrick Henry's 'Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death' speech.

10k protesting will barely

10k protesting will barely make the news. Convincing fellow travelers that this whole thing is a farce and completely ridiculous til a critical mass is built up is probably more effective.

Someone on here had a good idea about making moaning noises while the TSA gropes you -to humiliate the agents as they carry out their unconstitutional work and to highlight the ridiculousness of the whole spectacle to fellow travelers.

On my next non-time-critical flight, I figure I'll just wear some daisy dukes, hooters shorts, or some old-school Prefontaine running shorts and cut an old shirt up into a halter top with a message to the effect of: "I feel so much safer when you touch me right there" -and then moan the word "safer" louder and louder as they grope.

Here's a few fun conversation

Here's a few fun conversation starters for your TSA groper:

1. You know, if you just got yourself into a little better shape, you could get paid alot more for touching ball-sack all day

2. What's the most famous ball-sack that you've touched this year?

3. Your mom must feel so proud. I bet she said to herself over and over when you were just a toddler "I hope that when he grows up, he can feel up innocent strangers, touch little boys, and make elderly grandparents feel uncomfortable and violated. Nothing in life would make me prouder."

4. Do you get that tingling sensation down your leg when you feel me up?

5. That's ok, herpes washes right off

6. Sorry, I had cabbage rolls last night and they always give me gas

7. What sort of experience touching balls helped you land this sweet gig?

8. Thanks, I've had an itch there all morning that I was just too embarrased to touch in public

9. When you think you've found prostate cancer, do you let people know?

10. You know, this would be alot less creepy if you didn't talk to me in that bedroom voice

Instead of protesters maybe a few slowcoaches in line.

Slow enough to make all the people in line behind them miss their flight.

I thousand little things for a thousand days a year. Make government controllers sweat from every pore. Never with a leader. Never with a crowd. Never with verbal or physical resistance.

When the cost of oppression exceeds the expected profits investors evaporate.
