Superbowl, Meet the TSA…

So, as if we couldn’t get enough government intervention in our life, we are now going to have airport security looking for suspicious behavior at the Superbowl. This is ridiculous and is the beginning of a police state. It should be up to the stadiums to hire security and it is unclear if the TSA actually does a good job. This is somewhat reminiscent because this is the first thing former President Bush nationalized. Here is the story from USA Today:

“For the first time Sunday, federal behavior-detection officers will team with local police to use a controversial technique on people heading to a major event, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) says. The officers usually work in airports.


Behavior observation is used daily by 2,600 specially trained TSA officers at more than 160 airports. Officers look for obvious signs of nervousness or other behavioral flags, such as sweating, avoiding eye contact or talking evasively.”

Do you know what those symptoms sound like? They sound like the kind of things people do when they have to go into a lot of security.
