 DLCheckpoint #3 [passenger bridge level] (PreCheck) / McNamara2014-07-06Barker TSO at X-ray belt insisted on asking me over and over if my cell phone was in my carryon bag and if I had any metal in my pockets; I ignored him; he got testy; I ignored him even more.150p1

 DLMacnamara main checkpoint2014-02-21I breezed through with the TSA precheck, but the lesser serfs looked like they were going through the NoS. Precheck is green all the way.500p5
 DLCheckpoint #2 (PreCheck) / McNamara2014-01-05TSOs tried to be talkative; I ignored them.650p1
 DLCheckpoint 3/McNamara (PreCheck)2013-12-02Normal PreCheck operations.620a6
 DLCheckpoint 2 (PreCheck)/McNamara2013-11-17Smooth and fast and noninvasive, the way all security should be.620p1
 DLCheckpoint 2 (SkyPriority)/McNamara2013-11-10TSA deemed me a terrorist this week, so no PreCheck. Patdown cursory. ETD gave two beeps and yellow screen, but TSO said I was "ok to go"?540p3

 DLCheckpoint 3/McNamara2013-10-27PreCheck lane now here at this checkpoint (lower level, same as "bridge" level).140p1
 DLMcNamara2013-08-05The MMW was in use while the WTMDs were roped off. I kindly opted out and received the pat down. The TSA agent was friendly and professional - no issues800a5
 DLMcNamara, PreCheck2013-07-05Today I am not suspected to be a "terrorist" so I was able to go through security the way it ought to be.820a
 USUS Airways2013-05-24You could chose between a lane with the scanner or with WTMD930a
 DLPreCheck2013-04-22Green color code if you are granted the "boon" of three beeps from our :constitutional" government. Many "random" hand swabs of "trusted travelers" (guess you're not that "trusted").400p
 DLPreCheck2013-04-14Got PreCheck "beep beep beep" .. however, all pax had to have hand swabbed for ETD. Stupid. One poor woman failed the hand swab test, and got taken off to full secondary inspection. I really feel very sorry for her. She looked as if she had no idea what was about to happen to her.400p2

 DLCheckpoint 3/McNamara2013-02-04Had to show BP to "pre-TDC" TDC TSA paid operative. What a make-work program.620a4
 DL3 (SkyPriority)/McNamara2013-01-28Got the three-beep precheck clearance; surprisingly, TSA "clerk" asked me if it was ok with me if I used precheck??????610a2
 DLMcNamara, lower level2012-12-27Chatdowns mandatory for all single travelers. TSA agent doing the chatdown was hostile and invasive. Also had bag check at the gate.120p10
 DLCheckpoint 3/McNamara2012-12-10600a15
 UANorth2012-12-08ProVision ADT is mandatory. Still got pawed on my short sleeves and bare arms.930a
 DLCheckpoint 3/McNamara2012-12-03Was "selected" for PreCheck; all others got the radiation and/or grope.600a1
 DL3 (SkyPriority)/McNamara2012-11-26SDOO opportunities have disappeared from this terminal; was able to get PreCheck.600a
 DLMcNamara2012-11-23There was a MMW and a WTMD in use. I thought it was SDOO but I was wrong. I got directed to the MMW and I opted out. In true DTW fashion, the TSA agents were very professional with their pat down. 430p
 DLMcNamara2012-11-08I went to the security checkpoint that is upstairs. There is one MMW to your right and a WTMD to your left. I was able to SDOO730a
 DLMcNamara2012-10-16I went through the checkpoint that you get to right from the skywalk from the garage. I saw that they were using the MMW and WTMD, but I also went upstairs and checked out the other two checkpoints. The other two checkpoints were using MMWs only with WTMDs roped off. I went back downstairs and selected the WTMD line. Easy enough730a
 DLMcNamara2012-10-07At first, they had all the MMWs and WTMDs operating, but shortly after I got in line for the WTMD, the TSA began to direct people through the MMW. I kindley opted out of course. My items were always in my line of site while I waited for someone to pat me down. The pat-down agent got my items and was very detailed in telling me exactly what he was going to do. He was quick and professional. 230p
 USSmith Terminal2012-09-10All WTMD were roped off and MMWs were in full effect. I kindly opted out and TSA was very professional and courteous in my opt out decision.8a
 DLMcNamara2012-06-24I got pre-check, which was great, but only saw one WTMD that actually had passengers going through it - the one south of the Delta Checkin.1030a5
 DLParking Garage Level2012-06-16At this hour the MMW was roped off. Looks like this checkpoint closes at 9 PM.840p
 DLMcNamara-Checkpoint 22012-06-04MMW seems to be in use for all, however this line has PreChek if you qualify which is a nice reprieve (WTMD only)930a5
 WN2012-05-11Scanners in effect for all.
 DLSky Priority/McNamara2012-04-09I should've gone thorugh checkpoint on concourse level; could've done an SDOO there. Opted out; took 3 minutes to get a groper, and I believe it would have been longer if they'd not pulled my laptop bag for "additional screening" and my stuff was backing up the line. 640a10
 DLCheckpoint #2 - Medallion Lane2012-03-16All pax being sent to MMW; however, somehow I got "Trusted Traveler" option. This is how ALL passengers should be treated!700a1
 DLMcNamara, upstairs2011-12-31All WTMD blocked off, both downstairs and upstairs. Typical TSA barking.1000a
 McNamara2011-12-13Lower level checkpoint had the MMW roped off7p
 DLa2011-11-22
 DLCheckpoint 2 (N of Delta counter)2011-10-23SkyPriority lane led to WTMD, but pax could choose MMW line if desired.
 DLMcNamara2011-08-09I was standing in front of the WTMD and there was a line for the MMW. I was told by the TSA agent I had to go into the other line. So I was forced through the MMW even though there was already a line and the WTMD was free.
 DLMcNamara/South2011-07-19TSA employees very respectful and courteous. Can choose your own line following the ID check ... left to WTMD, right to MMW.
 DLMcNamara - Left2011-07-10Each pair of lanes had an MMW and WTMD, and all MMW were in use at 7 AM, but you can time it to get the WTMD, i.e. wait until someone was in the MMW. TSA didn't seem to care.

 DLNorth2011-04-21Most of the sheeple went through. I refused and was subjected to nice romantic foreplay
 DL42011-04-11
 AANorth2011-03-28All passengers were being herded into the MMW. Only saw one exception for a woman with a young child. TSA smurfs were blocking the WTMD and pointing everyone to MMW.
 DLMain ticket level2011-01-13TSA personnel selected passengers "at random" to enter machines. Three machines on main ticket level security point, two at garage entrance level.
 DLMain (lower level)2011-01-03All passengers in later-evening were being sent through metal detectors.
 DLMcNamara2011-01-03Passengers had the option of going through the metal detector or the backscanner. The TSA agent seemed surprised that when given the choice everyone opted for the metal detector lane. The agent encouraged passengers to try the backscanner with the enticement if you use the other lane, you can be FIRST in line!. The only people who were convinced were the German couple behind me who I'm fairly certain did not fully understand what was transpiring.
 DLMcNamara Terminal / International Arrival2011-01-02Opted out of going through the milimeter wave scanner and was told very crankily that the machine didn't use radiation, they couldn't save the naked photos, and I was wasting everyone's time.  But I got my groping in the end!
 USNorth Terminal2011-01-01Both a metal detector and a backscatter machine were in use, one for each of two lines to go through the checkpoint. However, they closed the metal detector and forced everyone to go through the backscatter machines for a few minutes seemingly at random intervals.
 DL2010-12-31
 US2010-12-31Metal detector closed forcing everyone through the BSR. I opted out, and strangely they didn't have me go through the metal detector at all, just the pat down.
 DLMcNamara (ABC)2010-12-26All metal detectors shut down, lines moving fairly well.
 DLMcNamara (ABC)2010-12-01Upper level has three lanes of security, scanner only at left two lanes; lower level has three lanes, scanner only on right two. Overstaffed/underused checkpoint from Westin has one lane and one scanner.
 DLNorth0000-04-21The TSa dork was choosing which person gets a dose of radiation . I refused and was taken back for getting groped. He had option to put you through metal but was doing 3 to xray and 1 metal. It took me an additional 20 minutes for private screening
