TSA Agent Caught Making Crazy Admission About Airline Safety
While the shaky, undercover video above is really more about the audio, it’s been making its way around the Internet, eliciting angry and frustrated reactions from any travelers who’ve ever been at the mercy of the TSA.
The uploader wrote, “This was inside the terminal at the Houston airport. 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.”
Using a hidden camera phone, the YouTuber caught TSA agent Louis Godeaux saying the holdup wasn’t because he thought the passenger was a security risk. It was because the agent was mad at her.
Top commenter ikasand0 even offered his own story from the point of view of the agent:
I worked with TSA for over 5 years, the last 2 as a ‘BDO’. In instances like this..yeah we were basically Fkng with people. Personally, the only time I ever confronted anyone was if it was an attractive Asian woman and i wanted her number. Other than that it was 8-12 hours of walking around the airport making fun of passengers. Near the end of my “career” i basically referred to myself as a paid actor because the job is nothing more than security theatre. I think TSA should be disbanded BIGTIME.
With a YouTube channel name like AirportVideosofTSA, perhaps our uploader is on a mission to provide more behind the scenes looks at airport security.
