Another Dubious TSA Trifecta

in Personal Liberty, Precaution & Risk

First, a Dallas TSA inspector is accused of stealing multiple iPads from passengers’ luggage.

Second, a drag queen’s “chicken cutlet” breast enhancers violated the TSA’s 3.4 ounce limit for liquids or gels. The accessories in question, which are stuffed into brassieres, are clearly not bombs. The man was detained for an hour until TSA figured out he wasn’t a security threat. Fortunately, he did make his flight.

And third, former TSA chief Kip Hawley writes that the TSA is “broken” and calls for reform in a ?Wall Street Journal? op-ed — three years after he left the agency. Better late than never,  I guess.
