Rand Paul's Son Arrested at Airport


The Rand Paul body scan issue was about a year ago. If there is evidence that there was something improper about what happened you should be able to find and provide it.


The Ron Paul family incident involving a private plane in Clearwater, Fla., was also months ago. Have there been any more recent developments? So far all you have given us is a story from a biased source (yes, the Washington Times is without credibility) indicating that "Private aircraft are not subjected to the same rigorous security screenings of commercial aircraft, leading some to believe Paul's family was targeted by the agency"

At this point if there were anything to what you're claiming you should be able to substantiate it by now.

So how about it? Where's your evidence?
A For one family to be singled out three times within a year seems a bit odd to me. Especially a high-profile family in politics that has been critical of TSA.

I used to travel a couple times a month for about 3 years while I was doing technical sales and I never had a problem with TSA other than the familiar annoyances.

Also - I posted this as a question, not an assertion.

You must be trolling.
How does one control the press coverage of themselves that is not scheduled or planned media events?

If the Paul's don't want TSA harrassement then they shouldn't get super drunk on airplanes.

Because he was charged with Drunk and Disorderly - doesn't necessarily mean he was drunk or acting disorderly. I'm sorry but TSA lacks a certain level of credibility.

Now on the flip side, sure he may very well have been - we don't know.
Still, three incidents in one year seems a bit excessive. (imho)

Given that the Pauls oppose the TSA, and have made it well known, they definitely appear to have it in for them. I mean, speaking out could put those TSA goons $9.00 an hour job in danger. We can't have anyone telling the truth about what a farce the Patriot Act and the TSA is, now can we?
