What about you guys? Is it better to lose your dignity or your life???
Thanks for allowing my 2 cents.
According to the youtube with the interview with Ventura, they are not talking about just pat downs. They are not talking about the more evasive pat
downs where the TSA is feeling you through your clothes. Ventura said TSA has taken the next step. In some cases, they are now going down the
people's pants and even panties.
Do you really want the TSA to stick their hands down your pants or worse? Ventura asked the question what's next?
If that is not invasive search, which we are suppose to be free from then I don't know what is. I hope Ventura follows through, and ends up winning
his case. Hopefully then we can get some of our freedom and dignity back.
As far as loosing your life, as others have already proved on other forums, these techniques are not really increasing our safety. The safest airport
is in Israel I believe and does not use any of the techniques we do. What do they do to have some of the safest airports? Profile people, which seems
to be a dirty word here. It seems profiling actually works, but we don't do it because of the politically correct crowd.
I rather be at an airport where they profiled people than one that treated everyone as an enemy of the state.
