PEOPLE WHO EXPRESS OUTRAGE OVER TSA GROPING CAN NOW BE PUT ON A WATCHLIST

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is forming a new watchlist specifically for people who give its agents a hard time during security screenings, and are deemed “unruly” passengers who act in ways that TSA agents find “offensive.”

The New York Times obtained a five-page directive recently published by the agency announcing the establishment of the watchlist or “95 list,” which is a new program that began in February.

The directive, which was reportedly issued by Darby LaJoye, TSA’s assistant administrator for security operations, states that An intent to injure or cause physical pain is not required, nor is an actual physical injury.”

The criteria that could land a person on the list is extremely vague and could include anything from loitering near the checkpoint to having a verbal altercation with a TSA agent. The directive also suggested that anyone who presents “challenges to the safe and effective completion of screening” could be added to the list.

On Thursday, Congress asked the agency to reveal more details about the watchlist and to notify the people who have been added to it. Until the report from the Times, the agency did not reveal any details to the public, even those who are on the list.

During a House of Representatives Homeland Security hearing, Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman of New Jersey said, “TSA has an important job to do, and I want TSA officers to be safe and secure. What I don’t want—what I think no American would want —is an excuse for unfair, secret profiling that doesn’t even offer a chance for people to contest their name appearing on such a list.”

TSA Deputy Chief Counsel Kelly Wheaton said in a recent statement that there only 50 people on the list, but two other government security officials told the Times under the condition of anonymity that there are likely many more people on this list.

TSA spokesman Matthew F. Leas said in a statement that the agency “wants to ensure there are safeguards in place to protect Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) and others from any individual who has previously exhibited disruptive or assaultive behavior at a screening checkpoint and is scheduled to fly.”

While this list does not prevent a passenger from flying, it does mark them as a potential target for searches or detainment if they continue to behave in ways that agents find suspicious.

It seems obvious that this new measure is targeting activists who object to TSA overreach or “opt out” during screenings. The TSA has been incredibly controversial since its inception, and there is a large segment of the US population who find ways to protest the agency every time they fly. It is very likely that this is the type of “disruptive” or “unruly” behavior that this new list is seeking to identify and single out.

Most of the formal watchlists that agencies like the TSA have had in place for years have been shown to have massive problems, but no changes have made, and countless names are added to these lists each year. In some cases, children have been added to watchlists, and in other cases, TSA employeesthemselves have ended up on these lists. In 2016, The Free Thought Project reported that calling the police or having a misdemeanor on your criminal record could land you on a watchlist.

There is plenty of reason for people to protest the TSA, as we report on a regular basis—its agents commit horrific acts against travelers and not just the invasive groping that everyone is subject to. TSA agents have been caught stealing from travelers, smuggling drugs, and committing outright assault.

This could soon be a problem that affects more than just air travelers, considering recent reports of the TSA expanding to bus and train stations as well as large-scale events.

  • Grope discounts available.
  • If we did our job any better we’d have to buy you dinner first.
  • Only we know if Lady Gaga is really a lady.
  • Don’t worry, my hands are still warm from the last guy.
  • Wanna fly? Drop your fly.
  • We are now free to move about your underpants.
  • It’s not a grope. It is a Freedom Pat!
  • When in doubt, we make you whip it out.
  • TSA: Touchin', Squeezin', Arrestin'.
