    Blatant harassment in the name of "national security." When are the apologists for these gestapo tactics going to realize they are wrong?

    TSA policy regarding breast milk. (For those who think that I do not know the applicable rules.)

    With zero reasonable suspicion they stop and screen (and when it suits them, harass) every single passenger . . . but a cop can't verify a person's citizenship when they have reasonable suspicion that they are here illegally. :cuckoo:

    Simply amazing, a perfect example of abusing one's power!! I can't imagine anyone not feeling a little hot under the collar watching what that woman had to go through.

    That simply isnt true. There was an incident where a passenger was forced to sample three bottles of breast milk. Others have had to pour it out.

    Watching the video it isn't clear that she asked for alternate screening ahead of time. There really is no reason not to let the milk go through xray for that matter.

    I call BS.
