Detroit TSA Security Theater (video)

• FreeKeene
On a recent layover in Detroit, I was filming roaming squads of TSA agents searching passengers at the gates. I didn’t feel like answering their questions, and their response was, well, see for yourself . . . In part 1 I interact with Janetta a TSA “Behavior Detection Officer”

The airport police show up to continue the harassment in part 2:

In part 3 I go on the offensive asking about body scanners, security failures, and more.

This video needs to be pinned to the top for a while.

Fantastic activism, editing, and narration--- a textbook template for those who wish to report on issues important to them. Finally, 4409 has competition!

Bonus points for standing up to those who wear a "federal" costume.
