Meg McLain chose to "opt-out" of being irradiated by the TSA porno-scanners. When the TSA goons raised a ruckus over it, she asked questions about what they were planning to do (enhanced pat-down). The TSA goons proceeded to yell at her, handcuffed her to a chair, ripped up her ticket, called the cops and had her escorted out of the airport.
Land of the Free? Yeah, right. The United States is a Police State.
Airsafe News, a site devoted to airline safety (including the safety of passengers), asks troubling questions about TSA screening procedures — of its own employees. And the TSA hasn’t answered them.
Because of lax background checks and confusing federal regulations, it is possible that convicted rapists and sexual offenders can work as TSA pat-down-and-grope screeners at airports.
Most TSA screeners are low-level employees protected by obstinate unions and brazen DHS Big Sister cohorts. Government employees with Top Secret clearances — a much more highly-screened category — are with troubling regularity being charged with child porn possession and, in one case, at least, running an international porn site on a Pentagon server.
The questions should be asked persistently until they are answered.
The Washington Post, a state organ, has attempted to smear Meg McLain:
The Transportation Security Administration released security camera footage that appears to contradict at least some of her claims, as she is not handcuffed in the footage.
But the 13-minute video WaPo links to is hardly evidence that Meg McLain lied, because there's obviously an unknown period of time that we cannot see Meg at all. That said, it sure looks like Meg is in handcuffs at the end of the following video to me.
