As we enter the busiest travel season of the year, there is no question that the TSA will be stepping up security measures across the country — including the use of the infamous ‘porno scanners’ and ‘enhanced’ patdowns.
Many of you will be enduring security checkpoints at airports over the next couple of weeks, so we wanted to remind everyone to download a free copy of our Know Your Passenger Rights flier before you travel. Click here to download the flier [pdf].
The Thanksgiving travel season came and went without incident from the TSA’s new, invasive security procedures, and as a result, the media frenzy surrounding it all but died. But that doesn’t change the fact that these ‘porno scanners’ are a dangerous experiment, soaking up millions of dollars in stimulus money in return for little-to-no evidence that they actually make us any safer from terrorist attacks.
What’s worse is that the TSA has gone to such lengths to protect these investments that they are using invasive, ‘enhanced’ patdowns to coerce people into going through the scanners. They are literally forcing travelers to choose between having a naked picture snapped of them or, in the words of the pilots union, to undergo ‘sexual molestation.’ Some choice, huh?
Anyway, now that we’ve made you even more excited to travel during the holidays, be sure to download copies of our flier for your friends and family! We hope you all have a safe and enjoyable holiday, and if you have an encounter to report, be sure to do so at http://TSAComplaint.com.
