    Screeners Miss 75% of Test Bombs

    This should just make you feel a lot safer when flying. I would love to have the job of smuggling things past these TSA morons.

    Recently I flew from Chicago to St. Louis. The two screeners were having a converstaion and appeared not to be paying much attention to the screen. They were very loud and obnoxious and I found it very unprofessional. Pay more attention to the screens please.

    +100 I take my daughter to fly out of LAX twice a year and the fact that I knew more about their personal conversation then they know about what is in the bag of the traveler in front of me is scary...

    You know? This type of press release ticks me off! It is like the command personnel in LE releasing the information that thier officers are wearing body armor. Just let the who world know our inadequacies so the idjets can take advantage of the inept procedures!
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.

    I don't know many airports I would label as good... I personally prefer the smaller ones... Out here Ontario International and John Wayne in Orange county are the ones I like best... As a matter of fact...I am driving to LAX to pick up my aunt today...

    I think John Wayne airport is pretty good, so are Columbus OH and Dallas.

    Yeah I thought about that. The flip side is that this issue hurts the Hildabeast.

    That's why I let people know that there are some of us that fly armed. Someone like me might be on the plane.

    Actually, whenever I fly I hope there's an armed police officer somewhere on the flight.

    How nice for you.

    That's awesome, actually - I pay $24 per day to not have to be dropped off alone in the middle of a dark parking lot nowhere near my car.

    THANK GOD for PAPD..that said the courtesy pretty much endsw tih them..half the time i think the screeners PURPOSELY screw with MOS..just because they can. Nevermind that EVERY TSA critter i've dealt with has been a problem one way or another. They keep getting into accidents on my Hwy on the way to Newark..and i havent had oen yet that didnt have A: Revoked DL; B: Unregistered; C: Uninsured..or some other "Issue" with their paperwork..and of course the FIRST wors out of their mout is "I work for Homeland Security Make this Quick"..... I wont fly out of Newark anymore because of that kind of stuff.

    You have to LOVE an airport that can't bother to be one all encompassing building, and that has separate security zones for each terminal.

    Plus the fact that if you DO have to transfer, 99/100 you have to run from one end of the airport to the other.

    How sad. My dad and I spent several months as contractors training screeners. I'm still an expert on several of the machines.

    Before we let anyone go, they had to score 100% on our test screens.

    I'm sorry to see they've slipped. I trained at Logan - anyone know how they are doing?
