TSA Creates Instagram Account, Pictures of Insane Weapons Follow Dylan Duarte July 3, 2013 Extras To put it lightly, the Transportation Security Administration, or TSA, is a not a popular agency in the United States. They're the ones charged with keeping the skies safe, but many people claim that they go beyond what's necessary, that they violate and intrude. In an attempt to show people how valuable (or maybe just to have a laugh), the TSA has created an Instagram account chronicling all the crazy stuff they confiscate. I don't want to delve into the politics of the situation, but seeing the various terrifying weapons that people have tried to sneak onto planes is a little eye-opening. I'm not saying that this justifies the hell they often put passengers through, but it does make it easier to understand why they do what they do. So just remember, the next time you're frustrated with TSA for majorly violating your personal space, they might be doing so because they think you have a gun that is also a knife. via Tech Crunch Share This With The World!
