ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO TSA!

Thanks for the heads-up:

She says she had no warning that someone was going to search her car after she left to catch her flight.

So the woman contacted News10NBC. We found out it happened to her because she valet parked her car. Those are the only cars that get inspected. So if security feels it is necessary to search some cars in the name of safety, why not search all of them?

Laurie Iacuzza walked to her waiting car at the Greater Rochester International Airport after returning from a trip and that’s when she found it, a notice saying her car was inspected after she left for her flight.

Iacuzza said, “I was furious, they never mentioned it to me when I booked the valet or when I picked up the car or when I dropped it off.”

Iacuzza’s car was inspected by valet attendants on orders from the TSA.

When you go through TSA security in the airport, at least you know it’s coming. Oh, sure it’s an indignity and has never stopped a terrorist and it takes too long, but you know it’s coming. But the valet parking ought to say right there on the sign, “Valet Parking Plus Free Car Search.”

The TSA can more or less legally do whatever the hell they please once you're on airport property, thanks to the Aviation Transportation and Security Act. They don't do it on long-term or self-parked cars as the barrier to entry is higher, whereas with valets you can just tell them to do it and skirt the Constitution. Until that law gets repealed or otherwise changed, that's just the way it is.

So, park your car yourself, or better yet, take a car service to the airport. Or if you're bored, get a rental car, fill it full of empty gas cans, shipping tubes and spools of wire, and valet park it. Har.

Terrorists love to valet park their cars.

A non consensual search. Time for a lawsuit.

If Leviathan's plan is to get us to stop driving cars everywhere instead of using mass transit, they're doing it wrong.

Not to diminish the indignity, but every airport I have been in since 2001 (and I fly a LOT), has huge signs posted along the entrances that clearly state all vehicles are subject to search. We may not like it, but it is not as if we did not know it was possible--right?
