RYAN1000 saidI am more interested to see how the lawsuits against this policy turn out. I'm also curious if the courts say this new "screening" measure violates the 4th Amendment. Personally, I think the TSA is walking a seriously fine line - regardless of the terrorism threat.
I can agree with you... but then, our forefathers didn't have to deal with underwear bombers and shoe bombers. We are treading on a fine line of protecting all citizens, and protecting our freedoms.
And like the other guy said, I think I am more irritated by the STUPID rules they still imply like the ounces of liquid in a container, and taking away toe nail clippers and such. The TSA rules are as stupid and the airline carriers charging for baggage. If they want to charge for a bag, build it into the ticket cost so its not so insulting.
But when it comes down to a pat down or a scan, I have already chosen the scan. I don't have the patience to wait for a pat down. With so many people getting irritated by them, there slowing down the line to make a flight. Before we know it, I can drive cross country before one gets through airport security.
