Flying without an ID is coming to a controversial end


www.cnn.com

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- It's a safe bet that every time you fly, you show a photo ID to an official at the airport checkpoint.

Every time Nick Kloiber flies, he doesn't.

Kloiber, 23, a University of Kentucky Law School student and privacy advocate, knows something that you probably don't -- contrary to popular belief, and contrary to some airport signs, travelers are not required to present identification at airport checkpoints.

Continued from article:


Under current Transportation Security Administration policy, passengers can refuse to show identification and can still fly -- as long as they agree to secondary screening, meaning a search of their carry-on bags and a pat down.

But all that is about to change.

Beginning Saturday, June 21, travelers like Kloiber who "willfully refuse" to show IDs won't be allowed through checkpoints or onto planes. Only passengers who show IDs, and "cooperative" passengers who explain why their IDs are missing and help police confirm their identities, will get through.

Show us your papers

The steady march towards a complete police state continues unabated. At first smokers where confined to designated smoking areas, now there are many places in the states where you can't even smoke outside. The patriot act was to be used against foreign terrorists now it's being use against us citizens, originally a cop could not pull you over for not using a seatbelt, now they can and do.

It's pretty sad when you have to have permission from the police to travel, and heaven forbid if your papers are not in order!

Checkpoints are now the norm here in the states, what sad shape we are in.

Suprise suprise....

all those who said 'oh no, the patriot act is good for Americans..it protects americans against the nasty muslim terrorists'.... please stand up, go to the cliff and jump off.

Same for all those who supported the UK anti terror laws which are all but name identical to patriot act.

Makes me sick. Im all for strong anti terror, but the people are not the threat, ever. Its the governments who see the normal folks as the threat, nothing more.

It's a farce anyway, at least here in America.

They're hell-bent on seeing your 'papers' to fly here, but terrorists don't have to fly to get here.

SO in essence, there just tracking everyone's movements, because they can - the TSA says so, Homeland Security says so, the Decider says so.

How far will this go I wonder, you'll have to 'show ID' to drive the NAFTA corridor, or will be only for businesses? To cross state lines? To buy gas? To buy food?

No wonder people get all biblically prophetical about these things.
