TSA passenger x-raying and groping may be disheartening TSA employee morale so much that search effectiveness at luggage x-ray points -- the trickiest and potentially most dangerous porthole for terrorists -- is seriously degraded. It is just a security job and now you don't want to tell anyone you work for TSA anymore -- how much can you take?
Who would take their wife and children to a bowling alley if they had to be pictured naked by a guard (half the time of the opposite sex) at the other end of the building? Ditto for entering Disneyland. Why should your family have to be stripped in front of strangers to travel to Disney Land? If the pictures were moving instead of snap shots -- jiggling everything you've got -- at that point would people finally revolt and just refuse to go through the scanners?
If the opposite sex groping forced* upon females of all ages (whenever female TSOs are absent -- more often at small airports) were performed by a male impersonating a TSO (not sure how this could happen -- but just theoretically) what crime could he be charged with? The same crimes the TSA is committing under the aegis of so-called "administrative search." Unheard of in the annals of law enforcement -- including high security prison visits. * http://ontodayspagelinks.blogspot.com/2010/12/tsa-opposite-gender-screening-mandatory.html
And I'm not even getting to same sex scanning and groping -- just citing felony sex intrusions. Add it all up and who would want to work -- or work effectively -- for TSA anymore?
