They won't bc they just go along with any new mandate. That x ray machine took the cake for me. My weave is a problem almost everytime.

so they're going to ignore this part where the TSA agent was comforting the child?

It's okay, you didn't do anything wrong, we're going to get you on your way," an agent is overheard telling Shelbi as she cries into her hands.

what do you have in there that sets it off?? cuz when I have in bobby pins or earrings, they never set it off.  I heard in jail you cant have pins in ur hair to visit inmates?  do they use the same detectors?

As I'm asked to step back in again the remark is usually something with a smile like, "your hair is really big"...It's only been when ive worn deep curly and I don't have pins or clips in. I guess they just saw a dark mass and had to check

You can say they should've used common sense in this case, but you really never know.


As much as I fly, I'm not phased by any measures they take. Not one bit. Young, old, black, white...you gets no sympathy from me unless you were assaulted in some way. I have yet to hear a story that makes me do something other than shrug.

And yes, Ive been poked, patted, and prodded (even weave checked) by TSA. If it bothers you, dont fly.

Damn TSA done hoodwinked folk

There is a congressional report about TSA's inefficiency and glaring vulnerabilities .
There are so many journals and articles and reports about the wastefulness of TSA from the staff to the wasteful technology they've bought only to he stored in warehouses of no use to us.
Also the body scanning machines they have can even check for weaponry in certain spots.

I could go on and on but Im glad that Congress has noticed and have made cuts to their budget and I hope there are more to come.
