This was an article from Sunday's New York Post, describing Terminal 7 (British Airways/United/US Airways Terminal) being shut down for several hours over an unplugged metal detector.

Wow. How are we supposed to trust these people with our safety if they can't even realize that the machine isn't on?! How does he not notice something that he gets paid to do everyday isn't working right? Especially when it is a light! This is a perfect example that not all TSA Agents are the most attentive or brightest bulbs in the box.

You trust them with your safety? Its a show to make the average passenger feel safe. The screeners have very little to do with actual security.

If they look at the screen and see something such as a box cutter or a gun, wouldn't that have to do with security and safety?

Pathetic.

Honestly we might as well just do away with the security checkpoints and save the money. Random screening within the airport with significant penalties would be as good of a deterrent as this decade long clownshow.

What a horrible, terrible, incapable, rude, bloated organization.
