Read some of the comments in the article. We really are becoming a nation of bleating sheep. "Oh, I don't mind being gladhandled because I'll feel safe" - I've got a better idea, how about we forget flying all together? It's obvious they'd rather have security theater than anything approaching meaningful security, preferring to hassle people in large groups than concentrate on the folks most likely to cause problems. We'd rather intrude on everyone's freedom than give the appearance of targeting certain groups - and we do so at our own peril.
NEW YORK (CBS 2/WCBS 880) — Friday’s UPS scare is prompting increased security measures at the nation’s airports. That could include newly introduced pat-down procedures.
Traveler Staci Reidinger told CBS 2’s Jay Dow she’s not happy about the Transportation Security Administration’s use of new full-body X-ray scanners. But citing privacy concerns she said it’s better than allowing a security agent put their hands on her.
TSA Security Theater - like gun control, what you do instead of something.
That is all.
