TSA Insisting Gropers be Government Employees

After the uproar over the new TSA naked scanners and gate groping rules, many airports were looking to opt out and have private companies do the screening. This has been allowed and 16 airports already participate in the program. Now, TSA is refusing to allow anymore airports to join the private screening program. TSA is violating Americans rights and their leaders and all their employees should be put in jail.
Washington (CNN)- But on Friday, the TSA denied an application by Springfield-Branson Airport in Missouri to privatize its checkpoint workforce, and in a statement, Pistole indicated other applications likewise will be denied.

"I examined the contractor screening program and decided not to expand the program beyond the current 16 airports as I do not see any clear or substantial advantage to do so at this time," Pistole said.

He said airports that currently use contractor screening will continue to be allowed to.

Pistole said he has been reviewing TSA policies with the goal of helping the agency "evolve into a more agile, high-performance organization."
The police state tactics used by TSA in regard to travel far surpass anything devised by the Nazis.
