Standing Up to Pat Downs: Join the Live Chat

Tonight, standing up to pat downs and other airport security measures, like full body scans that fliers feel have gone way too far. One man's pat down videotape sparked this new round of outrage when he warned a TSA worker, "If you touch my junk, i'm gonna have you arrested." How did that turn out? We'll tell you. We're keeping them honest.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short (we don't have time to read a "book")
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (there's no need to yell)
3) Use your real name (first name only is fine)
4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    As I read these comments on this blog I am shocked at how many people just "shuck it off as this is Post 9-11 or this guy wanted his 4 minutes of fame and flying is a luxury"...Well thats only because of the economy that flying is more of a luxury and last I checked driving cross country cost nearly the same. The TSA is only trying to due a job but I would rather us the United States go back to the way things were prior to 9-11. At 30 years old I would rather die on a flight or see 100 more 9-11's than to see what is happening to us now. We are giving these terrorist just what they wanted.

    Goodnight – sleep tight

    The dolphin story was the best part of the show – along with the cat/croc fight. Too funny!

    @Anderson, agree with you on the REdiculous part of the story! Like the new segment.
    Good night & thank you, as always, for another excellent show.
    Good night fellow writters, always a pleasure.

    Palin- refudiate? I missed that one and can't Believe the Oxford Dictonary is listing it as a real word!
    Love Joe Johns comment! LOL
    Wish everyone a safe and peaceful day tomorrow.

    this report really makes me angry. Nobody wants to be subjected to unnecessary radiation or an invasive pat down. the US needs to be more proactive instead of reactive when dealing with the threat of terrorists!

    Sarah Palin will certainly go down in history! She can not miss!

    I think Cindy's husband came between both of her statements, but that is just my opinion....

    Ridiculist – that's a great segment. Mrs. McCain does have a very strange stance going on here. Good night everyone. I enjoyed the show. Loved the dolphins.

    I personnaly thank the TSA's effort to prevent a successful terrorost attacks. Bombing incidents have happened due to poor implementation and processes of security measures by authorities. If a terrorist bombing was not prevented, we citizens including John Tyner blame authorities. If bombing is prevented, we give little appreciation on those men and women that worked hard to do their job. Be glad to technology that flying is safer and checks are more convinient. What if TSA uses bomb sniffing dogs to check passenger? would anyone be comfortable???

    I guess she's looking to run for office soon!
    She's refining her two-faced statements.

    Love that you are doing specials about animals week- much to learn from and about them!

    I think Sarah Palins word was "refudiate"??? I'll find out when Anderson returns.

    I loved the report on the intelligence of dolphin. It was absolutely fascinating. I'm looking forward to the gambling hating lemurs tomorrow.

    November 15, 2010 at 10:52 pm |
  27. lisal -canada

    i like lemurs – they are, without a doubt, much more interesting than lemmings

    Nice dolphin story. Thanks team 360.

    This explains why dolphins, elephants, monkeys, etc are the animals that can be trained to interact and do the tricks at a circus, zoo, etc.

    I have truly been looking forward to this special on animals!
    I know medicine has been using Dolphins to try and treat children for a variety of conditions.

    This story on the Dolphins is Remarkable! Excellent report Randi-Kaye!

    Most animal people will tell you that animals ARE very smart (often smarter than people!}

    One thing it tells me is that these animals are much too intelligent to be put on display for the entertainment of humans.

    We have had dogs that have reacted to their reflection in a mirror and they have reacted to things they have seen on TV.

    I love dolphins, they have a permanent smile on their faces which makes me smile

    I am not interested in flying again unless absolutely, absolutely necessary. I guess the government will be bailing out the airlines in the near future – as more consumers decide to spend their money elsewhere, not with the private corporate airlines, where profits are the bottom line.

    As if someone said, "Open wise!" to the dolphins.

    How do they know that they aren't thinking they see other dolphins in the mirror?

    November 15, 2010 at 10:47 pm |

    That's interesting to what the dolphins playing in the mirror. What a fun assignment this must have been for Randi!

    This is so cute, it's making me laugh.

  43. Sue R. Canton MI.

    @Lisa in Canada= Re-"Flip the situation with the IRS and abducted children around." I really dind'nt think of it that way. They would have to be very careful if they changed the law. I agree with you because I'm sure that there are many children who have been abducted by the good parent who is trying to protect them.

    Animals are extremely intelligent. Only because they don't "speak" as we humans do, that some people may think otherwise.

    November 15, 2010 at 10:46 pm |
  45. Megan Dresslar - Shoreline, WA

    YES! I love my favorite dolphins!!!!! They are amazing & smart, Nana is best throwing at Randi. That is so cool I have seen this! 🙂

    I love animals and I actually think they are smarter than alot of humans are. They can sense things we cannot before they happen like natural disasters

    November 15, 2010 at 10:46 pm |
  47. Emily

    I'm not surprised that animals are smarter than what we've thought, however, it's interesting to find out "how" this has been discovered.
