INSITE STREET TEAM MEMBER DON WILLIAMS WEIGH IN ON THE TSA!

WILLIAMS: AIRPORT SECURITY HAS GONE WAY TOO FAR – PICS FROM LAX!





In Feb 2008 (V-Day Weekend) I visited L.A. with my girlfriend and had a wonderful trip right up until it was time for us to go to LAX and return to Houston. We made it to LAX, checked in our luggage, and proceeded to the security checkpoint. I was going through the checkpoint and my lady had actually gone through the metal detectors. Suddenly, every other passenger attempting to fly, including myself – were forced outside on the pavement for what was apparently a “test terrorist threat drill.” We sat there for 3 hours watching them go through all of these procedures. That caused us to miss our afternoon flight. So while we were supposed to arrive in Houston at 7pm we didn’t make it until 12am. So, Isiah, in response to your question…yes, the TSA has gone too far. They should do test drills on their own time.
