Flying While Brown
I am at a loss for words. Incompetence? Malevolence? Racial profiling? All of the above?

Don't Fly During Ramadan

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Wow -- no words. I get that there's been a huge terror threat recently -- but still. When I read that....I dunno.

It makes me a little sad and a little angry.

The TSA is comprised of a bunch of minimum wage rent a cop wannabe's. Security is a ****ing illusion. The only purpose they serve is to harass brown people and force me to buy $5 airport water.

Reminds me of this story: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/steve-bier...52660.html

Guy was carrying 5K in donations from his (right wing) political rally and they detained him unlawfully for hours.

Documentary on Netflix called 'Please Remove Your Shoes' is pretty damn scary/infuriating.

RE: Flying While Brown
It's a textbook example of people being scared shitless of a horrifying but extremely rare security threat, which, 95% of the time can be stopped with simple, good police work.

Instead people, who demand a zero risk life thoughtlessly hand over their civil rights to government bureaucrats who create more useless bureaus like the TSA and the HSA at the expense of the taxpayer dollar.

And these bureaus are inevitably staffed by incompetent, inefficient, power drunk assholes like the TSA agents who manhandled this poor man and to add insult to injury insolently defend it with 'I'm just doing my job'.

This makes me so angry and sad at the thought of fucking proper security. He didn't deserve any of that shit. And they wouldn't even give him a cup of water?

Are you fucking shitting me?

Incidentally, I was expecting the punchline to be that there was a chemical on the 'queue ticket' that triggered the machine.

Yes
