"Freeze Drill"

A passenger recorded video of TSA officers requiring passengers to spontaneously stand still for no apparent reason—after they had already passed through the security checkpoint.

A TSA employee was pointing his blue-gloved hand at anyone who moved a muscle (including airport workers) and barking these orders. Beyond him were two other agents doing the same thing to everyone in a 90-degree radius. The tension was rather palpable, as you might imagine. No explanation was given, no other words were spoken. No one moved a muscle. Parents grabbed their children. Anyone who fidgeted or made a step forward got yelled at.

Here is the video in its very short entirety.
