TSA Detains Woman Due to 'Attitude'

http://gma.yahoo.com/blogs/abc-blogs...ws-travel.html

A woman who claims the Transportation Security Administration detained her from her flight because the agent didn't like her attitude has posted a video of the confrontation on YouTube.
The 22-second video has 45,000 views as of Monday morning. It is posted under the name AirportVideoofTSA. The person who uploaded the video writes, "I was not allowed to board a plane (even though I had already been through airport security) because I drank my water instead of letting the TSA "test" it. The TSA agent finally admitted that it wasn't because they thought I was a security risk-it was because the TSA agent, Louis Godeaux, was mad at me!"

Though TSA has been testing liquid post-security since 2007, the issue made news last week when a video was posted of TSA agents testing passengers' liquids the airport in Columbus, Ohio.
"The test involves a test strip and a dropper containing a nontoxic solution. In case you're wondering, our officers don't place the test strips in your beverages/liquids," said the TSA's blog.
She was stopped because she didn't allow standard procedure post-security checks in an establishment with high-security especially if this was in September or nearing September. Fair play to the security, they should have escorted her out of the building after checking that she wasn't a threat in any other way and banned her from using the airline in future.

I don't know how it is elsewhere, but if I was to go in to my local airport and not follow the rules which are there for the safety of myself and everyone else on-board and in the airport then I would be escorted out and most-likely arrested. This is the way airport security is nowadays, and tensions are higher world-wide when it's so close to a day which is marked with planes and deplorable acts.

I am certainly not a fan of the TSA but if any passenger suddenly drank a fluid after refusing to have it tested, I would think it would be cause for concern.

They already have a tough job. What is the point of giving them attitude?
