TSA Screeners Win Immunity From Abuse Claims

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

WEB Notes: This actually turns my stomach. These creepers can feel up your family and there is no recourse if someone gets out of hand with a process that is already out of hand? I would say, what has this nation come to, but we all know that answer already. What happened to that tagline, Make America Great Again?…

This also reminds me how the Federal Government has blocked your ability to sue the vaccine manufacturers as well. Who is helping out who here?

Fliers may have a tough time recovering damages for invasive screenings at U.S. airport security checkpoints, after a federal appeals court on Wednesday said screeners are immune from claims under a federal law governing assaults, false arrests and other abuses.

In a 2-1 vote, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia said Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screeners were not “investigative or law enforcement officers,” and were therefore shielded from liability under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA).

The majority said it was “sympathetic” to concerns that its decision would leave fliers with “very limited legal redress” for alleged mistreatment by aggressive or overzealous screeners, which adds to the ordinary stresses of air travel.

  1. O.k. I have to fly somewhere to be safe from a possible terrorist event. I am checked as anyone else. I also go to have a physical every year to check for my standard of health in driving as a commercial licensed driver. Long before 9/11 occurred! Why not everyone who drives? Drop your drawers, turn your head and cough! What fun! Which is worse? It all has it’s purpose I guess? Children in this manner seem to be unnecessary. Then you watch the true story/movie American Sniper. The Marine, Chris Kyle in the Middle East. Where he had to sniper shoot a child carrying a bomb in the street that was going to kill his approaching squad team! It was heart wrenching ! A PTSD for life! Chris Kyle survived several tours of duty, just to come home and be killed by a pacifist jerk at a firing range in Texas. Chris was their as a past- time volunteer veteran for disabled veterans also with PTSD. What irony! It’s the world we live in today. What’s the BIG picture in it all!!?? I think some of us know…

  2. make america great again? I think that is in the “SWAMP” that just seems to be filling up fast, overflowing, and trump is right in the middle of that SWAMP!!!!
