because the risk isn't just to the passengers on the plane, there's the risk of crashing the planes into crowded areas and the US gov't doesn't
want that to happen.
Like I said, I travel at least 3-5 times a year. Both alone, and with my family. My wife just flew with our kids last week. Security, during
crowded, crazy vacation time, from Florida, the last day before school started up again, took 15 minutes to get through.
It's not intrusive, it's not slowing down our travel time.
What is intrusive, and what does slow down travel time is when a moron decides he's going to make a statement about a non-issue, and he acts like
having to put his shoes, and belt, on a conveyer belt, is such a huge imposition that he strips down naked, exposing his junk to everyone. I'm sure
he gets whisked off and, in the interim, everyone else is stuck waiting for the security issue to be under control.
Attention whoring doesn't make a statement other than "LOOK AT ME I'M NAKED"
Doesn't anyone find it odd that the majority of people who complained about being groped were either out of work D list celebs and people who felt it
necessary to strip down to their skivvies to make a point?
For every unfortunate incident of a pat down due to a colostomy bag, there's a dozen over the hill men and women trying to keep (or get) their name
in the spot light.
