A woman who had passed through airport security in Houston was detained by the Transportation Security Administration and forbidden to board the plane as punishment for exhibiting a “bad attitude.”
The TSA, which apparently exists in order to provide gainful employment for deviants and petty criminals, recently began a policy of testing beverages for explosives. This includes bottled drinks and coffee purchased by airline customers inside secure areas of airports.
The woman involved in the Houston episode – which was captured on video -- was confronted by TSA personnel who demanded that she surrender her water bottle to be “tested.” Since she had been through two security screenings, the woman didn’t see the point of this petty harassment and drank the water – something she obviously wouldn’t have done if it had contained explosives or poison.
“Let me get this straight,” she said when TSA personnel refused to let her on the plane. “This is retaliatory for my attitude, this is not making the airways safer.”
“It pretty much definitely is,” one TSA employee admitted.
In the age of the Homeland Security State, every airport operates like a prison. Then again, so does the rest of our society as well.
