It Begins

Airports Can Legally Opt-Out, Kick TSA Program to the Curb, and Instead Hire Private Security Screeners

Sanford Airport to opt out of TSA screening

"The backlash continues over those new TSA screening measures, and now one Central Florida airport has decided to go with a private security screening firm.
Orlando Sanford International Airport has decided to opt out from TSA screening.
"All of our due diligence shows it's the way to go," said Larry Dale, the director of the Sanford Airport Authority. "You're going to get better service at a better price and more accountability and better customer service."
Dale says he will be sending a letter requesting to opt out from TSA screening, and instead the airport will choose one of the five approved private screening companies to take over.
Congressman John Mica, who's expected to lead the powerful Transportation Committee next year, says the TSA is crying out for reform.
"I think TSA is overstepping its bounds," said Mica.
Dale says, if all goes as planned, the private security firm could take over in about 12 months.
The TSA points out that even if an airport decides to use a private firm for security, the screeners still must follow TSA guidelines. That would include using enhanced pat-downs and the full-body scanners if they are installed at the airport."

Bullshit. Going through the naked cancer zappers is not mandatory, as the opt out business at airports prove, and airports aren't required to install them. And "enhanced" gropings and feel ups aren't required either since the TSA just makes up rules as they feel like. Screeners regularly bypass all screening themselves. The thugs at TSA are being backed into a corner and they're flailing out with fear mongering and flat out lies.
Private companies are probably lining up to replace this failed experiment to see just how much abuse travelers will take, and it's almost guaranteed they won't be as senselessly stupid as the low IQ shitbags currently employed in the insanely bloated TSA Bureaucracy.
More and more airports will dump TSA since seats won't be sold because of intense passenger hatred of unnecessary abuse.
