I LOL'ed when I listened to those TSA dudes acting out a D List version of Starsky and Hutch, with them getting totally juiced on the Supreme Authority they were anointed with. Too bad the authority given them didn't come with instructions on how to use it properly.
Then again, how do you teach common sense, job related instincts and being street-smart to thousands of people that get low pay, long hours, adverse confrontational working conditions and being held responsible for keeping all our commercial passenger aircraft from getting blown out of the sky or redirected to Uganda?
The basic skill set requires being able to see and recognize patterns. Which is an inate ability of nearly every human.
You make some sense. However, if that's their only function, then who pulled that passenger with the recording phone out of the screening process and interrogate him like they're the FBI? Weren't they TSA?
