... So if they're not investigating anything, and not acting as law enforcement officers, what authority do they have to conduct a search of persons or belongings? Federal law now says "None, whatsoever."

And who am I, or who is any mere TSA flunkie, to argue with or contradict the considered jurisprudence of two sitting federal appellate judges? I ask you.

IANAL, but in declaring the TSA "not investigative or law enforcement officers", the 3rd Circus has cleared the way for passengers to ignore their requests, on the grounds that the federal court has denied them any legal or law enforcement jurisdiction over private citizens.

Thanks, guys. Now I have federal legal precedent to tell you to go self-fornicate.

They can't have it both ways, and the court, in shielding the merry band of incompetents from any shred of civil tort liability, has now cut the TSA's enforcement balls off in this case. That's going to leave a mark, albeit a tiny one, given the size of the appendage in question.

Hopefully makes it to SCOTUS about the time the cadaver Ginsburg is replaced.
