Anybody else seen the new TSA uniforms at MSP? They look like Jet Blue pilots with badges and no tie. Wonder what that cost us taxpayers to convert to the new uniforms and add that worthless badge? Badges...Badges...We don't need no stinking badges!

Watch out for jetBlue pilots who damage TAT probes and attempt to break into aircraft.

I can see it now. A pilot sees a person trying to break in to an aircraft and calls the airport and 911 to report a possible terrorist. It shuts down the airport, then it's evacuated and the TSA supervisor gets promoted while the airline gets fined for following procedures.

Meanwhile, actual terrorists smuggle bombs in cargo.

I would laugh, but I can't because that scenario is very probably.

So, since TSA hasn't sent any directives to the airlines about the new uniforms, when you see one of these clowns on the ramp in it, identify them as an unknown, potential threat (it could be a terrorist that bought pieces of various airline uniforms on ebay), tell ops to call the local LEOs, take the axe (or a mag light if available), sneak up behind them (because they may be highly trained in hand-to-hand combat if they are terrorists), and crown them on the head. Repeat as necessary until they are unconscious (because after all, you wouldn't want a highly trained terrorist to get up and take you out). Then wait for the police to show up and drag them off.

Two or three of them filing workman's comp claims for getting knocked out by a vigilant crew member would stop this ramp access idiocy...

The new uniforms were announced months ago.

There was even a headline article about them in USA Today.

They shouldn't be a surprise. Unless you live under a rock...I thought all pilots read USA Today?!? (At least more than read company memeos!)

Have fun. Play nice!

One would think that some sort of spiderman uniform would be more appropriate.

First things first. I guess wasting millions and millions of taxpayer money on new TSA uniforms comes before instituting Crewpass at more airports.

Problem Solved

One of my thoughts as well. I guess since they have solved all of the TSAs problems, they can spend more taxpayer money on new Barney Fife uniforms. The fat idiot with spiked hair looks just as idiotic in the blue shirt w/badge as he did in the white shirt.
