TSA now has "95 list" of passengers who assaulted officers

Posted: Updated:

Listen up before you fly.

The transportation security administration is letting travelers know they keep a "confrontational fliers" list called "95 list".

It marks a history of passengers who have assaulted officers... or tried to shortcut security.

There are currently less than 50 names on this list, according to TSA 

In 2017, there were 34 assaults against officers.

Being on the list isn't enough to ban someone boarding an aircraft, it also doesn't mean this will make them have additional screening. 

Although TSA says a passenger cannot be put on the list solely because of their race, religion or gender.

"I can see this being taken the wrong way, where people start making this a racial profiling," said Brittaney Hoots. "I do believe that you know, 
if you're confrontational one year, you know, you could go through some kind of treatment or something happens in your 
life where you have a different view in life and you're not so confrontational, so I believe also that people should be also given the benefit of a doubt."

Hoots also add that while you do always want to be aware of things, however she says she doesn't think somebody's past should be held against them.

A TSA spokesperson gave this statement: "TSA is committed to its people and wants to ensure there are safeguards in place to protect officers 
    and others from any individual or assaultive behavior at a screening checkpoint and is scheduled to fly."
