Your Security Theatre at work

High quality “security”.

Travelers in Sacramento, Calif., got a surprise when they approached airport security and no one was at the metal detector. Five passengers went on through without any screening. Finally, officials noticed the unattended metal detector and shut down the terminal until the passengers were found and screened.

[NPR summary quoted in full because it is so short that any omissions would lose critical information. Full audio of the story is available here.]

TSA is a sham. They have yet to actually catch a single terrorist, while constantly violating people’s Fourth Amendment Rights against unreasonable searches (even at border checkpoints, agents must have reasonable suspicion to conduct a body search), and while performing actions that would be considered sexual assault if done by anyone else.

Disband TSA yesterday.
