Video: TSA Targets Pilot For ‘Telling The Truth’

The truth hurts and it looks like the TSA is not one to tolerate it.

A veteran airline pilot got on the TSA’s bad side when he embarrassed them by posted a series of cell phone videos showing serious security flaws at San Francisco International Airport. Within three days of posting the videos four federal air marshals and two sheriff deputies paid the pilot a visit to confiscate his federally-issued firearm and his state-issued concealed weapons permit.

The pilot’s attorney believes that TSA sent the law officials to send a message.  “And the message was you’ve angered us by telling the truth and by showing America that there are major security problems despite the fact that we’ve spent billions of dollars allegedly to improve airline safety.”
