TSA wants Concealable Multi Threat Body Armor

According to a recent FBO.gov release, the TSA is looking for Concealable Multi Threat Body Armor.

"The purpose of this notice is to post a Justification and Approval for other than full and open competition with the intent to award a contract to Armor Works.  The product is a conceable, ballistic and stab resistent body armor system with charactiristics as described in the attached J and A."

Armor Works is a defense contractor.

if the government was really concerned about the TSA workers safety, they'd get them some sort of X-ray hazmat suit to shield from the cancer causing xrays.

I Don't get It

Why would the body armor need to be "concealable"? Their uniforms and mere presence at airports is already offensive enough, why would I care if their body armor were visible to me? They may as well wear kevlar helmets too for all I care. (Those things give you a headache after a few hours).

I like how they request this

I like how they request this soon after allowing small knives on airplanes. Perfect gov. circular logic...

Hey lets allow small knives on airplanes so passengers think we are giving them a little extra freedom

Well, if we do that we might get stabbed! Lets get some body armor just in case.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

They just want to look

"BadA**"

I just know that there have

I just know that there have been SO many instances where this would have been useful for them. I mean with TSA agents coming under fire every week, of course they want something to protect themselves with. Of course once again they have no idea what they are doing and are asking for body armor when in reality they need they need to relocate to China or something to help protect them from all the nasty statements people are making.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

No one is shooting or

No one is shooting or stabbing any TSA agents, why do they need armor, they aren't SWAT. This is a waste of money when we are beyond broke and in debt.

Wow check out all the typos/errors

"Concealable Multi Treat Body Armor"
"... contract to Armor Works.nbsp; The product..."
"... with charactiristics as described..."

GREAT TYPING JOB, BOB. UR FIRED

Coming down to their level: a revel in immaturity.

Yeah well how about they get ugly armour and wear it so we don't have to look at their ugly faces? How about stupid armour so they won't be so stupid? How about stupid fat and ugly armour so they aren't so stupid fat and ugly and we don't have to look at them? How about jelly donut armour so they stop shoving jelly donuts up their stupid fat ugly faces huh? How about that huh? Stupid fat ugly TSA jelly donut eaters.

Get your preps together! Learn historic food storage and preservation methods and the science that makes them work now, start saving money and the future

I think it's just for testing

I think it's just for testing though. They only want 24 systems (vests). Crazy thing is 24 systems costs 30K!...someone getting a kickback? Maybe I'm reading it wrong.

If ignorance is bliss, Washington DC must be heaven.

"I think it's just for testing though."

"They only want 24 systems "

Oh, okay. In that case I am on board with it. Thanks for clearing that up.

I won't object until after the fact when it will be too late to do anything about.

Im sorry

Your right, we should just freak out any time the government does anything.

I'll go get my pitch fork right now.

\sarcasm

Just trying to point out that from what i had read they were doing testing and that 24 systems is not enough equipment for the entire TSA. With that in mind the article is note worthy, but not freakout worthy. And please point to where I implied that I was "on board with it". Personally I think the TSA is a joke and don't agree with the organization in the first place so no I am not on board with it; which is why i don't fly.

"The sheeple in this country simply amaze me."
Your hospitality is what amazes me. I sure hope you don't greet the sheeple that come here to wake up or they might just choose to stay ignorant.

Well I sometimes come across as gruff on the board, but I am basically just a teddy bear and a big time pacifist at heart. I won't take to heart your post if you don't take mine :-)

As far as greeting the sheeple, I have learned an entirely new approach, lol: I ask a Republican his/her thoughts about issues, or if they voted for romney in the election. After they respond, my response is, Oh, so you're a democrat? And then I hand them a comparison sheet, and you ought to see the look on their faces! I am almost certain that after my response and the comparison sheet, it keeps them up at night, lol.
