TSA claims it is requiring some overseas airports to have passengers turn on devices before boarding.
Devices that won’t power up like cellphones, won’t be allowed on planes, and those passengers may face additional screening.
“Passengers at some overseas airports that offer U.S.-bound flights will be required to power on their electronic devices in order to board their flights”
“As the traveling public knows, all electronic devices are screened by security officers”
American intelligence officials have been concerned about new efforts to produce a bomb that would go undetected through airport security even thought there is no indication of a specific threat.
TSA will not disclose which airports will be conducting the additional screening.
Does this also mean the TSA has the right to confiscate your cell phone and or laptop at will if it does not power on?
This new initiative comes into effect after reports that the TSA is selling items they confiscate from you on a government website for profit. Items collected have earned Pennsylvania $800,000 in profit alone.
The TSA has been riddled with controversy over the years. Since its existence the TSA has not prevented one single terrorist attack, however is known for their intrusive “enhanced patdowns” – illegal genital-grabbing full-body searches of everyone.
The intimate procedure even violates our children and the disabled which, as a TSA agent admitted, were deliberately intended to intimidate fliers into walking through the TSA’s then-new X-Ray full-body scanners instead, which later were removed because of health concerns involving exposure radiation.
Although the TSA have never stopped a terrorist attack, they have been involved in a rapidly growing amount of crimes including drug rings, rape, prostitution rings, sexual harassment and even murder of a customer attempting to fly, who reprimanded for shouting at the gate attendant.
Now the TSA union is calling for armed guards attempting to are the TSA guns. However, airports are refusing to arm the TSA do to public outcry.
