The TSA is targeting its critics for additional scrutiny:
CNN has obtained a list of roughly 70 “behavioral indicators” that TSA behavior detection officers use to identify potentially “high risk” passengers at the nation’s airports.
Many of the indicators, as characterized in open government reports, are behaviors and appearances that may be indicative of stress, fear or deception. None of them, as the TSA has long said, refer to or suggest race, religion or ethnicity.
But one addresses passengers’ attitudes towards security, and how they express those attitudes. It reads: “Very arrogant and expresses contempt against airport passenger procedures.”
Uh oh. I think my contempt is rising as we speak.
