TSA PervOscans™ out of favor

The latest Homeland Security appropriations bill eliminated funding for more airport PervOscan™ machines.

However, the bill does not provide $76 million requested by the President for 275 additional advanced inspection technology (AIT) scanners nor the 535 staff requested to operate them.

Maybe someone is paying attention.

    my last trip through logan, which is the belly of the beast they only had one scanner running in the checkpoint and 3 security lanes. I picked the old-school metal detector-and-on lane.

    If this becomes the policy I’d be perfectly willing to pick the big-kid lane and let the sheep get their false sense of security.

    Of course I’d also rather not pay for any of such bullshit…

    I think if they don’t find anything, they have to give the person they scanned 20 dollars out of their pocket. After awhile, they’ll either get real good at profiling, or they’ll keep their hands in their own pockets.

    How about make it illegal for the government to pay any TSA screener who pats down a US Citizen?

    You want a search, and have probably cause, get a cop.

    (You meant “probable” right?)
