They just keep getting worse
Remember that one of the great lies is “We’re from the government and we’re here to help”.
A woman traveling on business found the above note in her luggage upon arrival, perhaps because she had packed a vibrator. Seems the TSA isn’t only looking for weapons, they’re looking for titillation.
Spencer Ackerman wrote, regarding this foolishness:
TSA has yet to prove that its invasions of privacy have stopped a single terrorist. Would-be underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab snuck explosives onto a U.S.-bound plane — precisely the scenario TSA exists to prevent — but TSA has successfully forced a disabled four-year old to walk through a scanner without his leg braces, and investigated its critics. And just this weekend, TSA failed to spot a loaded .38 in a duffel bag checked through at LAX. The new-ish TSA chief, John Pistole, says he’slooking to shake up the agency. But Filipovic’s tale is a reminder that TSA’s security professionals don’t mind letting you know what they think of the items you pack on your trip.
Don’t we all feel safer now?
