TSA Security Theater

See my Fujifilm GFX wish list.

This sounds like a nightmare, with a high risk of damage to gear and/or theft or loss.


TSA raising aviation security baseline with stronger domestic security measures

WASHINGTON* – To ensure the security of airline passengers and the nation’s airports, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is implementing new, stronger screening procedures for carry-on items that require travelers to place all electronics larger than a cell phone in bins for X-ray screening in standard lanes. Following extensive testing and successful pilots at 10 airports, TSA plans to expand these measures to all U.S. airports during the weeks and months ahead.

Pure security theater. People are going to die from planes blowing up without a doubt—but this sort of approach is well known as useless by security experts. The real threats will come from unknown quarters, with government incompetence trailing the real threats by months or years.

* Acronym for “cesspool filled with parasites where nothing useful or beneficial happens”.

This is not the case if you’ve paid for TSA PreCheck. $85 for 5 years. A bargain to avoid stripping at the airport. For $15 more you can apply for Global Entry.

DIGLLOYD: excellent way for the Bad Guys to blow up a plane. Any decent professional terrorist would have pre-check as the first thing on his/her to-do list.

I don’t fly much, but I might have to sign up for the program if I did start flying with much camera gear.
