    At the airport waiting to fly to WA DC. TSA decided that they had to pat me down as the milliwave scanner indicated that there was something suspicious about my butt and my groin.....

    Yet the scanner never flagged the fact that I forgot to take my all metal watch off.

    My all metal tactical pen in my carry on went right through without any problems.

    No offense...but I’m guessing you don’t have an intimidating size or demeanor...

    Did you get a "free" rectal exam?

    "Free" is in you paid plenty for your ticket.

    The scanners flag my neck. They pull me aside, take one look at the scar and send me on my way.

    My back and neck both have sufficient metal to set off metal detectors.


    I’m not flying anywhere, so, TSA can KMA.

    A benefit of flying.
    Did you enjoy it?

    Rule of thumb when looking for either a weapon or contraband (41 years a cop); any wise cracks about "you gay?" or some such always guaranteed a really good pat-down. Guys just naturally don't feel comfortable patting down another male in the genital region. Gotta be very careful if doing a search around that part of the body.

    Make all the jokes you want, when I was a detective in the NYPD, and I grabbed some guy who had done something "anti-social" I'd give that person a really good pat-down. Around the groin area, there ought to be only three items dangling down there. If there were more, well, we had an issue...

    The really " special treatment " is when they take you in the small room and close the drapes.

    Ive seen some TSA female pat downs, "actually rub downs" , that got everyone around the entry point aroused. Including the rubber and the rubbee.

    I mean how many rubs of a breast or a vag does it take to figure out theres not an AK-47 hidden under a pair of shorts and a summer T-shirt?

    It ain't the size of the prize, it's the angle of the dangle.

    I really want to get one of those metal bill of rights to carry on. Of course it will be flagged, and then TSA will take away your bill of rights so you can fly. I don’t think my wife would be happy if I did it though.
