CBS, Fliers Complain About X-Rated Security Screenings
Horror stories, plus a statistic:
out of 2 billion passengers screened nationwide since 9-11, there have been only 110,000 abuse complaints.
Let's see. 110,000 complaints per 2bn passengers. 110 per 2m. 1.1 for every 20,000, or one per 18,181. What's that per day, per airport?
MIA runs 2.8m passengers per month. If it has average TSA staff, that would generate about five complaints of abuse every day at MIA alone. Doesn't sound like “only” to me!
Have you ever tried to register a complaint about TSA at the airport. I tried one time. In Chicago. To even find a supervisor I had to go to another gate area. The only form he had was a “complement form” that he said I could use for my complaint. Imagine how difficult it is to file a complaint when you’re rushing to catch a plane. It’s not hard to believe that the TSA has few complaints. They really don’t have much of a procedure to register them. BTW — I never got a response to my complaint. My guess it ended up in the circular file.
I knew there was a reason I have put off that set of nipple rings I have so long coveted 🙂
