TSA Ignores Own Policy, Deletes Photos of Checkpoint

If you make the rules, you can ignore the rules


TSA screeners confiscated a man's camera after he began video recording a checkpoint in Puerto Rico, deleting his footage before returning his camera.

The incident has sparked a debate on Flyer Talk as to what laws would actually apply in this case.

On one hand, there are no photo or video restrictions at Transportation Security Administration checkpoints, as much as many screeners act otherwise.

But on the other hand, Puerto Rico has its own constitution and laws that might not always reflect those of the United States.
