Vote: Has the TSA Gone Too Far or Is It Just Right?

Apr 11, 2012 12:13pm

Just last month, agents of the Transportation Security Administration at a Philadelphia airport found fireworks and explosive powder in a man’s carry-on bag, prompting his arrest.

But for every critical discovery made by the TSA, there seems to be a bad-news story about the agency, be it a security breach — last week, a Newark, N.J.  airport terminal was evacuated after a man walked past a security checkpoint to meet a relative on an arriving flight — or  what some have criticized as overzealous screening procedures. Last February, a mother said she was “humiliated” when she felt she needed to pump breast milk in the open area of an airport bathroom in order for a TSA agent to permit her to get through security with her breast pumping equipment.
