By now, everybody except TSA screeners and airport cops pretty much
know we are legally allowed to video record TSA checkpoints at airports.
The policy has been clearly stated on the Transportation Security Administration
website since at least 2008, which is when I first came across it, and
has been modified over the years to make it shorter, clearer but, of
course, to add a disclaimer that “taking photographs may also prompt
airport police or a TSA official to ask what your purpose is.”
In the latest video, which was posted August 30, a man with two video
cameras, including a Go Pro strapped to his head, decides to test out
the policy by standing well away from a checkpoint and recording at
Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
