Ever since 911, millions of Americans have seen their privacy invaded for the name of safety and security. Unfortunately, that is the world we now live in, thanks to the abundance of technologies. In response to the terrorist threats to the security of American airline travelers, the federal government created the TSA.
According to the TSA website:
“Following September 11, 2001, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was created to strengthen the security of the nation’s transportation systems and ensure the freedom of movement for people and commerce. Today, TSA secures the nation’s airports and screens all commercial airline passengers and baggage. TSA uses a risk-based strategy and works closely with transportation, law enforcement and intelligence communities to set the standard for excellence in transportation security.”
“TSA has established guiding principles to maintain the security of the traveling public and continuously set the standard for excellence in transportation security.”
Over the past eleven years, TSA Agents have been groping people and stealing their possessions in the name of security.
