The TSA in Trashville(my favorite town to hate in Tennessee) is indefinitely detaining Senator Rand Paul. You don't suppose this could be a not-so-veiled threat at his dad, do you? :whistle:

No, just another a case of douche bag politician thinking he is better than everyone else and shouldn't be subject to something as "embarassing" as a pat down.

From ABC News:

By Sunlen Miller

Sen. Rand Paul told his communications director this morning he was being detained by TSA at the Nashville airport.
The Twitter account associated with Paul staffer Moira Bagley, @moirabagley, tweeted around 10 a.m., ET, “Just got a call from @senrandpaul. He’s currently being detained by TSA in Nashville.”
A TSA spokesman disputed that Paul was ever “detained.” But he was not granted access to the secure area of the airport when he tried to board a flight Monday morning.
The standoff was short-lived. By late morning, according to TSA, Paul had been booked on another flight and made it through the screening process.
The TSA version of events is that Paul triggered an alarm during routine airport screening and refused to complete the screening process (pat-down) in order to resolve the issue. Paul was escorted out of the screening area by local law enforcement.
“When an irregularity is found during the TSA screening process, it must be resolved prior to allowing a passenger to proceed to the secure area of the airport,” according to an official statement released by TSA. “Passengers who refuse to complete the screening process cannot be granted access to the secure area in order to ensure the safety of others traveling.”
Paul’s office confirmed he set off an airport security full-body scanner “on a glitch,” according to a spokesman.
The Paul staffer said TSA agents would not let Paul walk back through the body scanner and were demanding a full body pat-down.
The Paul spokesman said his office called TSA administrator John Pistole about the incident this morning.
The U.S. Constitution actually protects federal lawmakers from detention while they’re on the way to the Capital.
“The Senators and Representatives…shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same….” according to Article I, Section 6.
The Senate is back in session today at 2 p.m., with votes scheduled at 4:30 p.m. It is not clear if Paul will make it to Washington by 4:30 p.m. on his new flight.
The issue of pat-downs has been an important one to Paul, the son of libertarian-leaning Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul. Sen. Paul brought this issue up at a hearing earlier this year.

Ding Ding Ding!! He refused the pat-down, so screw him. If you have a problem with that as being too intrusive senator get your ass back to Washington and do something about changing the law. If we have to live with it so do you.

According to the "law", members of Congress are NOT to be detained, so, screw you. And, he offered to go back thru the scanner.

You really might want to grow a brain before lipping off.

They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same;

1) He was not arrested
2) Refusing to comply with TSA authority does constitute breach of the peace
3) A Kentucky senator at an airport in Tennessee does not fit under any reasonable definition of "Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same"

TSA has way too much authority and Paul is one of the asshats who gave it to them. Too late for him to be crying foul about it now. The TSA acted within the scope of their power. Have a nice day.

I have worked for Customs for almost 27 years. I set off the alarms every time through the detector. I have to get patted down, searched, and have had my luggage searched on occassion. It's not the guy or girl at the scaner's fault. They have thankless jobs to do and procedures to follow all in the name of keeping us safe. I save my bitching for the lawmakers.

> Full Body Scans.

> A secured border and 100% inspected shipping containers.

Which would keep us safer from the "terrorists?" :whistle:

When such a glaring hole presents itself for true terrorists to enter our land, why do we stand for 1984 levels of stupidity and rights destruction?

Common sense could get us far in this land. :roll:

Rand Paul has been against the TSA thug routine from the beginning. Very possibly the only non-asshat senator.
1. Semantics
2. Offered to go thru the scanner again, but, that got jackbooted. According to friends who fly often, this isn't an unusual request.
3. Rand Paul is a US Senator, NOT a Kentucky house senator, which seems to be lost on you, along with any other truth about Rand Paul. AND, the destination was DC for an already scheduled(at 4:30 pm EST) FEDERAL governmental affair.

I can see your Connecticut ego has grown just fine, but, the brain got tossed to the wayside.

I was going to avoid this discussion like the plague, but you have to wonder:

Item: The police in Tennessee insisted Paul was “irate” about his illegal detainment, but a security video later released shows the Senator sitting calmly in a chair waiting for the TSA and the police to let him travel.

Item: Two women in their 80's were strip searched because they had colostomy bags. There are countless other examples. My mother, who is 81, was questioned for an hour because she only had one small piece of luggage and they couldn't believe a woman would travel so lightly.

Item: Cases of TSA groping 3, 4, and 5 year olds...including taking babies diapers off. We've all seen the pictures.

Item: Johns Hopkins study reports full body scans unsafe (radiation levels extremely high). Not to mention some of the scans of hot women saved and being passed around among TSA employees.

Item: A woman was not allowed to bring a cupcake on board a plane as the frosting was deemed a "security threat".

Further thoughts for you considerations: NDAA, SOPA, and ACTA.

Personally I don't feel safer. Actually I feel less safe. If the price of being "secure" is losing our freedom altogether, what have we won?

I'd rather live one day as a lion than one year as a sheep.

Amen! It's ludicrous. Look at our southern border! It's wide open for any damn "terrorist" who wants to come into the country and set up shop here, and our cargo containers don't get screened. Yet we need to be strip searched at an airport?
Please... :roll:
