Learning about TSA Pre-Check the hard way

Another passenger learns about the scam of Pre-Check the hard way. From a woman who identifies herself as Trish24, comment originally left last month, February 2, 2015:

“I may never fly again and I am serious thank you TSA. I was TSA prechecked but my hands got wanded and supposedly something showed up. My carryons were totally dumped out including my wallet I was taken to a room for full pat down..breast, groin they reached inside my pants…degrading, humiliating and frightening..I am a 63-year-old woman with high blood pressure, they are lucky I didn’t stroke out! As I tried o repack my carryons and tuck in my shirt I heard the agents state that I was the fifth false positive that morning and they knew the wand was defective. Not going back to RSA Fort Meyers!”

As I told Trish, it has nothing to do with RSA Fort Myers. It’s the same all over the country. But again, we’ve been trying to tell people this for over four years.

TSA News transition, pls be patient as we fix bugs

As you can see, TSA News looks different. We recently changed over to a new format and are still working out the kinks. For one thing, you’ll see that posts aren’t dated on the home page. Second, there’s no indication of how many comments are on posts. Third, you can’t see pix on the home page. Fourth, visible hyperlinks have disappeared. They’re still there, but you can’t see them unless you accidentally hover over a linked word or phrase and discover a hyperlink that way. Right now, all the posts look like one big block of black text. Our tech support guy is fixing everything, so it’ll be back up and running smoothly soon. In the meantime, please bear with us.
