Unless you are hiding under a rock or do not intend to ever fly commercial air in your life, then you have probably heard some of the controversy circulating the TSA’s security screening and alternative pat-down procedures when going through the security gate at an Airport. Recently a 31-year-old software programmer, John Tyner, went through the security check at an airport and decided to opt for the pat-down but during the ordeal he states to the security agent ‘don’t touch my junk’. During this ‘session’ Tyner had his camera on his smartphone rolling recording the conversation. Due to his ‘don’t touch my junk or I will have you arrested’ statement, Tyner was greeted with a supervisor and later charged with a $10,000 fine for leaving the security area. The video of the incident is below.

After all of the hype and controversy over the TSA’s procedures on pat-downs and the added ‘issues’ with the ‘skin-x-ray’, some air passengers opted not to go through the infamous new x-ray machine. Now people are making a mockery out of the TSA (Transportation Security Administration). The video below is one rendition that someone took upon themselves to create called ‘Don’t Touch My Junk (the TSA Hustle Song).

Another instance of the TSA coming under fire among air travelers is a recent video of a young boy strip searched by a TSA agent as shown in the video below.

The person filming the video above goes on to say:

Before the video started the boy went through a metal detector and didn’t set it off but was selected for a pat down. The boy was shy so the TSA couldn’t complete the full pat on the young boy. The father tried several times to just hold the boys arms out for the TSA agent but i guess it didn’t end up being enough for the guy. I was about 30 ft away so i couldn’t hear their conversation if there was any. The enraged father pulled his son shirt off and gave it to the TSA agent to search, thats when this video begins…

After I finished videotaping the incident I went through the check point myself. I collected my things and went over to talk to the father and son. Before I could get to them a man in a black suit who had been talking with the other TSA officials approached me. He asked to speak to me and I obliged, wondering what was to come. He then proceeded to interrogate me about why I was videotaping the “procedures of the TSA”. I told him that I had never seen such practices before on a young child and decided to record it. The man being frustrated at this point demanded to know my plans with the video, of which I didn’t respond. Repeatedly he asked me to delete the video, hoping his mere presence could intimidate me to obey, but I refused. By this point it became obvious that he felt TSA had done something wrong and that I caught it on tape. After the interview, I left for my gate. I called my brother who told me I should put the tape on YouTube because this had been a recent hot topic in the news.

My gate was a long way off, but about 15 minutes after arriving 2 TSA agents came and sat 15 feet or so away from me. I stood up and moved so that they were in front of me and then took a picture. A 3rd and then a 4th agent came and sat down with the others. They would occasionally glance at me and talk on their walkie-talkies. I don’t know why they were there or if it was a huge coincidence but they stayed for 30-45 minutes and left just before I boarded the plan. Interesting to say the least, intimidating? Maybe a little…

Has the TSA gone too far? Are the rights of American citizens being taken advantage of? Should the TSA go about things a little different or is it completely justified in your eyes? Post your comments below!
