Does no one understand the concept of discretion these days? Does it not click in their brains that "hey this might be embarrassing for this guy, let's be quiet and discrete about this and not shout out HEY HE'S WEARING A DIAPER"?

Disgusting. The TSA's track record just keeps getting worse and worse, it really needs to either stop or be carefully reviewed and fixed, because WOW. I feel real bad for that cancer victim, no one should have to go through that kind of embarrassment in public.

This is why one has the option of a private screening. I do feel bad for the guy, and I agree that the TSA employees in this instance were woefully incompetent, but if I'd just filled my diaper, I don't think I'd have gone through the body scanner. TSA wouldn't be doing its job if the screeners didn't inquire about what was seen on the scanner, and so you're really sort of setting yourself up to be asked embarrassing questions in front of the whole line.

Not defending the particular agents here, but the TSA does have a tough job to do. It can be a little less tough with the right decisions being made on the part of a prospective "victim."

Makes me wonder if these screeners are even trained in these aspects of their job? wow! Let alone how to handle such a situation, when it arises... obviously not!

While I understand what the goal of the TSA is in terms of protecting the general flying public, it does not forgive them for being incompetent, insensitive asses. Given the medical issues already faced by this gentleman, he may not have known he was wet or the severity of how wet he was. Considering that security lines can be an hour wait depending on where you fly from and at what time and day, you can change into a dry diaper minutes before entering a security line and be plenty wet by the time you get to be checked and not fully know it.

TSA did do it's job in questioning what they saw on the screen, but the way it was handled was ridiculous. What I find even more distasteful is that we are expected to simply 'put up with' stuff like this in the name of flight safety. Most of these agents have little clue how to deal with people and many of them get on a power trip. To be honest, there are also those that are honest, decent people as well. Even so, the bad instances will stick out in your mind faster than the good ones, I've had three that I remember dealing with personally.

Flying on a trip with my wife and children one summer, I was singled for 'extra screening' and pushed into a different line from my wife who was trying to deal with three young children. When I complained that we needed to be together because she needed my help with the kids, I got nowhere and was told that I could not join them until after security. I complained to the supervisor after screening and was told that the person directing traffic wasn't a TSA agent and my wife and kids were allowed to stay with me. If they're not TSA, then why are they controlling who goes into what line?

Another time, I had one agent who couldn't speak a lick of English try and yank my nine-year-old daughter away to have a swab down for explosives. She screamed and I started to get agitated. The cops came over and explained what was being done, and apologized that nobody said anything or explained until then.

Last, I had one time where I had left a small, cheap pocket knife in my bag for several months when I then had to go on a flight. It showed up on their screening, and I admitted I had forgotten it was in there, I was more than willing to surrender it (seriously, it cost me $3). The TSA agent ended up fighting with the cops and delaying us--she wanted me arrested for trying to smuggle a weapon onto a flight, the cop absolutely refused because it was an honest mistake.

They may have a tough job, but a bunch of them can be asshats and get away with it.

To be honest, I'd expect nothing else from the TSA.

I never had any problems travelling to the U.S. so far, luckily. but the security itself is an extremely big... downer. Or to be specific, how the employes handle it. Although they have their statutory provisions.
Surely... there might be a threat somewhere. However it's not like any halfway smart human being with certain intentions couldn't circumvent the airport security in two seconds.
It’s just a show, but whatever! This gives a feeling of being secure, I guess.
Anyhow, if countries like Israel are dealing better with it is a question on it's own. Using advanced (I'm only using this term since the questioning in the U.S. is actually not even basic.) "behavioral profiling" is not exactly brilliant too. Getting nervous is a natural reaction, especially in tense situations. And any kinda guy who should be "suspicious" had some training to no to be, if he's not brainwashed at all.


Still even under those circumstances it's no excuse for being absolutely incompetent. It shouldn't have been a problem at all, despite that the TSA has it's horrible statutory provisions... where any human behaviour usually get's lost, so any kind of comfort. But... well how should a lack of knowledge with a bit of ignorance help in this case.

Secondly, since I wonder: Is there no way to get any kind of certificate? So that the security may not touch/bother you at all about this, if it's official.

not yet have had a bit of grief from the TSA going through the line. I will admit that I have security clearances at my local airport though, and the local TSA agents know me reasonably well. One restriction I've noticed in that department, when working in the passenger hold/sterile area, I had either make sure all my tools were on my person at all times, and not leave my clothing except use, or I was escorted and watched. Understandable that I might leave some wire cutters laying around for a 'Tarist to pick up, but, Ugh, even still, I haven't even gotten much grief on outside airports. Granted, when I flash my ID, my security badge is right next to it. and the fact I fly maybe, once a year or so.

Watch out if you're Incontinent and have to fly anywhere in the US. Apparently they're out to get you. I'm so angry at this, it's disgusting the way the TSA treated this man. That whole organization needs to go, along with the NSA, and the awful blight that is every security agency created since 9/11. I certainly don't feel protected by the bastards.

I had recently gone to the Superdome in New Orleans to see a Saints game(my first time, my family never had the money to go to games, but we've always been fans, living so near the city), fortunately the security there only checked my bag and just saw it was diapers and let me through. I actually left the little green tag they put on my diaper bag as sort of a memento, lol.

But I'm legitimately afraid to fly now, God knows, what would've happened had the TSA ran NFL security, >_>

It's on that lunatic's site, there's maybe a 10% chance of being a legitimate story. I would probably make sure it's valid before I go flying off the handle.

I think what stands out in this story is that the security didn't even seem to know what incontinent meant. It's not like he was going after the man for wearing diapers, he was just stupid.

After reading another story this week about how the TSA frequently laughs at people in the Naked Scanners, this sadly doesn't surprise me in the slightest bit, and just seems to prove that everyone at TSA is an asshole (I know not EVERYONE there is, but these two stories certainly make it seem like it.
Ex-TSA employee claims agents routinely laughed at naked X-rays of passengers | The Raw Story

It amazes me how much we're willing to put up with in the name of security such as forgoing all liquids, going through Naked Scanners so that TSA can laugh at you, and taking off your shoes, and yet, we're no safer than we were before 9/11. This behavior is deplorable and we should actually work on Airport Security that actually works instead of making you get rid of liquids or humiliate a guy wearing a diaper so people feel safer.:wallbash:

What's worse is that the TSA hasn't even done jack shit since their creation, other than humiliate people, pick on others, and force many into uncomfortable and heart-shattering situations.

I remember an incident a while back ago where a very elderly person in a wheel chair was repeatedly asked to get out of it until they forced the person out. It's honestly like they find the worst human beings possible and tell them to run wild and humiliate as many people as they can in a day, and the person with the highest points per month get an award and come cookies.

Please know that I am no fan of the TSA; that it assaults our liberties in the name of security (that it doesn't really affect) is evidence that the terrorists are winning. I also agree that this particular incident was poorly handled and the complicit employee(s) should be subject to addititional training at the least and termination at the most. I travel internationally frequently for my job and have been witness to outrageous TSA shennanigans since their inception. However, I must caution that the media only report on the negative stories. I have also witnessed some very kind and compassionite TSA employees and have commended them personally. Again, I'll say that the whole TSA concept is bad, m'kay? But just temper your reactions with some perspective is all I'm saying.

That is the very essence of unprofessional behavior. Their job is to keep the peace right? What if they provoked someone who was perfectly willing to get physical with them and never even want to get on a plan again? Honestly if someone was that disrespectful to me I would demand to see their boss and order that boss to fire the individual on the spot or I would go over even their head(the immediate supervisor) all the way to the owner of the security company if I had to, and ask them if I needed to simply make business bad for their incompetence by trying to show people how unsafe their lack of professionalism really is. That was potentially dangerous to not only the staff but everyone nearby because you have no idea how violent a person can be when humiliated like that. Their job is make things safe and this is a prime example of them failing to do just that. If I am going on a plane I would not feel safe with such idiots running security around me. I am more afraid of the security then I am afraid of Al-qaeda at this point.

If it helps, everyone should know that a lot of staff at airports, including the one my dad works at... HATE the TSA guys.

Not only do they harass their customers and make their lives miserable, but also the vast majority of TSA related complaints go to the airport staff, not the TSA bosses. And airport staff almost always have no say whatsoever in TSA operations and conduct.

There's an older guy that works with my father at the airport who blames the TSA with turning an industry that used to be a pleasant, almost luxurious experience into a hassle and a nasty black mark on many people's vacations/business trips.

Alec Baldwin had a bad experience with TSA and well. He reported that the TSA agents ordered a pat down for his infant baby.
