To be fair, if my wife looked like that, I wouldn't want anyone to know it either......

Uh, krpind, don't you realize how dangerous weapons are?? I mean, if he smuggled a pistol on board, the terrible thing might have held him hostage, or shot him or something!

He had balls to stand up for what he believed in.. That's alot more than I could say for most.

The question with these machines & policies is how far is too far??

In one hand we want to fly securely & the only way that happens is if everybody gets screened properly.

On the other hand, machines that can look through clothing??

Next thing they'll have are machines that can read our thoughts

Horseshit. They reduced the resolution on the machines specifically for that reason. If you google it you can see the full/high res pictures, it's still nowhere as detailed as you think it is, except for hard metallic objects. If you had it bronzed you might be right.

That pilot is a moran.

All he had to do was politely ask to see the shift supervisor and then ask the shift supervisor when the TSA procedures had changed ( because they haven't ) .

It would have all been solved at that point.

At least they aren't forcing people to choose between traveling or being humiliated.

They should offer flu shots at the end of the TSA line, for The Greater Good.

SEPTEMBER 14––The airport screener arrested for assaulting a coworker who taunted him about the size of his penis after his genitalia was exposed by a full-body scanner told police that he snapped after being subjected to “psychological torture” by fellow Transportation Security Administration employees who repeatedly asked him, “What size are you?”

In a handwritten statement given to cops following his May arrest, Rolando Negrin, 45, described the fallout after he walked through a high-tech "whole body image" scanner during a training session for TSA workers at Miami International Airport. Negrin’s statement to Miami-Dade Police Department officers, excerpted here, was obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request. The original police report detailing the incident can be found here.

Negrin wrote that, despite his pleas, coworkers would not cease mocking him after the scanner gave them a revealing look at his genitalia. He recalled that he was mockingly asked, “Roly, what size are you?” Coworkers, he added, called him “little angry man,” laughed off his pleas for compassion, and abused him in front of passengers.

The merciless teasing and “psychological torture,” Negrin stated, left him stressed out and with elevated blood pressure. When he confronted his chief tormentor, Negrin said the man laughed at him. Negrin, pictured in the above mug shot, later allegedly attacked fellow TSA screener Hugo Osorno in an airport parking lot, striking him with a police baton while demanding an apology.

According to court records, Negrin is scheduled for an October 25 trial hearing in Miami-Dade Circuit Court. Reached by phone this afternoon at his Hialeah Gardens home, Negrin declined to answer questions about the case. “I do not wish to talk to anyone about my issues,” he said.

What about a child? Do they send kids through that machine? Think if you have a 16 year old daughter. I am guessing that they have male agents look at males being scanned and women looking at women but that is just a guess.

Still, the scan is BS.

Because you have no 'right' to travel by private air craft. You either abide by the requirements to board private property or you don't go and are free to leave.

It isn't a freedom thing. Nobody is demanding a strip search as you walk down a public way. You have a right to travel freely, just not on a private company's air plane. It isn't even public transportation where you still have to where shoes and a shirt.

Splittin' that hair mighty thin there, since the private property owner is not the one making the decisions about requirements to board said private property.

Yes. You get the hand-wand and a pat down.

FWIW, I've been "selected for random additional screening" several times. Every pat down I ever had was a complete joke and would not have found anything I had made any effort to hide. They swept me with the wand first, but weapons are not necessarily made of metal.

Since they normally do these in full view of everyone waiting to go through the metal detector, [b]I'm convinced their only intent is to make people think they're doing their job.[/b]


And there you have it. I get pulled aside for additional screening nearly every time I fly due to the nature of what I carry for my business. The TSA is all about the appearance of security. Aside from the basic metal detection, I don't believe that we are one iota safer due to any of these new measures, and as most in this thread are pointing out we are ceding a substantial amount of liberty to enjoy the product that the airlines deliver. I would not have such a problem with it if it was just the corporate policy of the airlines rather than the social welfare jobs program that the TSA exemplifies.

You have a valid point - but, my concern is where this will overflow to.

They are already running back-scatter vans in certain areas of the country... if this stayed in the airport, then fine - but this is the camel getting his nose under the tent... under the guise of the greater good.

American Science & Engineering, a company based in Billerica, Massachusetts, has sold U.S. and foreign government agencies more than 500 backscatter x-ray scanners mounted in vans that can be driven past neighboring vehicles to see their contents, Joe Reiss, a vice president of marketing at the company told me in an interview. While the biggest buyer of AS&E’s machines over the last seven years has been the Department of Defense operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, Reiss says law enforcement agencies have also deployed the vans to search for vehicle-based bombs in the U.S.

Didn't the UK ban the use of these scanners on passengers under 18 because they violated British child pron laws or was that ban over turned?

What is the difference between the physical treatment a drug-dealer that just got busted received... and of you, on your way to Pebble Beach to play golf? I don't see any... hands on your body, looking for tools of criminal behavior and bad intentions.


Because you have no 'right' to travel by private air craft. You either abide by the requirements to board private property or you don't go and are free to leave.

It isn't a freedom thing. Nobody is demanding a strip search as you walk down a public way. You have a right to travel freely, just not on a private company's air plane. It isn't even public transportation where you still have to where shoes and a shirt.



Your arguement would be more apt if the TSA was run or required by the airlines.


The pre-cursor to the TSA was run and hired by the airlines. Most of them were foreign nationals and most could not speak english, never mind do a background check on them.

Even the the feds make and enforce the rules, it is still a private property and private for hire transportation. I don't like it any more than anybody else. I especially don't like the x-ray dose those things give. I think it is an infringement on my privacy, and so is NOT PROFILING the THREAT.

Imagine if every pilot did that? A return to sanity, common sense and respect for personal rights would be too much to ask for though

I'm not really sure how you would draw that conclusion...

Those scans are a rights violation. If the public uproar gets louder, the TSAs ability to explain things away gets muffled.

I have to commend him for his decision... you may be OK, with having your rights trampled and privacy invaded - I'm not.

Every pilot doesn't have to do that,

That pilot is an idiot. there are special rules for pilots and what he described is not them. All he had to do was politely ask to speak with the shift supervisor and the supervisor would have corrected the idiot TSA person for not knowing the procedures.

But instead he has to be an ass. And his wording about how he hasn't blown up an airplane to the TSA people should get him fired on the spot.

The fact that it was in the past run by the airlines themselves does not make the constitutional issues once the government takes it over any less valid.

Would the searches withstand constituional muster if the local PD started Terry searching every person before boarding and running them for warrants?

Nope. not a dime. Some airlines got some cash post 911 (not all ) and it was a loan and all paid off less than 2 years later in full. If anything it's the other way around. About 40% of the ticket price you pay is federal taxes.

Nobody is "running you for warrants". Should you wish to enter a private nightclub in most major cities you will either go through a metal detector, be wanded, or be patted down, or a combination of those. Should it be illegal for private establishments to make their own rules for entry to their premises?

If you read the whole thing and can't find the logical inconsistencies then I can't help. He refuses the scanner (so what, I don't care). Then he refuses a pat down (why?). Later on he claims that TSA just wouldn't be happy until they saw him naked. Is he such a moron that he doesn't understand that a pat down is not a strip search? I get patted down going into nightclubs in most cities, it's not a big deal. I'm not embarrassed about my body, so I don't have one iota of problem standing in the scanner, as I've done many times.


Your willingness to submit to such intrusions is not grounds to force others to do the same.

I "submit to such intrusions" because it is required of my service to the US military. Likewise this douche has to comply with the standards as a condition of his employment. Like I said, good riddance to bad rubbish. There are plenty of pilots waiting on the furlough list to take his job. He knew he'd be subject to security screenings daily when he took the job.


Well, at least we know you didn't fight for liberty.

Should the government make it a requirement for, providing the personnel and equipment, nightclubs to search customers then it would have the same constitutional concerns. The fact that it is a federal requirement for part 121 carriers to use the government screening does not make it a private affair.

If you're so offended by the invasions of your privacy, charter a private jet, drive, or stay home. Nobody is forcing you to do anything.

Horseshit. They reduced the resolution on the machines specifically for that reason. If you google it you can see the full/high res pictures, it's still nowhere as detailed as you think it is, except for hard metallic objects. If you had it bronzed you might be right.


So the .gov has no reason to say that they reduced the resolution, but who is to say that once they are common place the resolution doesn't go up?

As.a service member and corporate pilot, I say that the two are not even remotely common and your service and it's duties do not mean that the citizen is forced to do the same as you were.

I give the pilot thumbs up for standing up for what HE believes in, and what i suspect most of us thing is totally bullshit as well.

This is a discusting trend in our country. Absolutley discusting.

So what if he didn't want to be patted down. HE'S A PILOT!

Once in the air, he could fly it to anywhere he wanted, or crash it into a building.

The TSA are idiots.
