The TSA: Who Needs It Anyway?Not Me. By: Cris Carrero
In the past the TSA was simple and quick process where security quickly checked your possessions.
But today the process has become very complex and time consuming in all aspects from getting the barding pass, checking bags, and passing through the TSA screening process.
Even though The TSA has supposedly improved since the events of 9-11, it has not become more effective.
When tested in the past, the TSA failed terribly.
Conducted tests show that the TSA can fail terribly if weapons or hazardous material are simply hidden well in luggage or on people.
The money being spent on the TSA is being wasted on an ineffective means of protection.
The changes that have caused an increase in safety in post 9-11 airports are an increase in air marshals, blast-proof cockpits, and better safety programs implemented on every aircraft and should be funded more appropriately.
