Running through the airport looks romantic on movies - in real life? Not such a great idea. The security guard probably should have tried to do something nonphysical to stop you first, before tackling, though...

If you're female, you can probably sue; especially if you're an attractive caucasian. However, if you're not very good looking, or not white, no luck. Hey, I just point out the law, not make it.

Nope, apparently as a 17 year old girl you are too naive to see what's actually going on. And that's okay, because well you're 17. What's sad is when people in their 40's and 50's who vote don't see what's going on. Unfortunately, America is fucked up and it's going down the tubes fast. You're right though, you do need people to protect you from terrorists—the kind of terrorists who are white, wear suits, and sit on the board of multi-billion dollar corporations or in the senate...or any other politically powerful position.

to the 17 y/o girl: Yeah, ironic how that patriotism can go right down the drain when you're being detained for 6 hours saying "Let me the hell out of this room!"

Well, it's important that they do their job. After 9/11 and the recent attempt where some guy put a bomb in his underwear (I still don't see why he put it there) airport security has gone up drastically.

Amazing how almost nobody knows enough about airport security and terrorist threats to make an intelligent judgement, and yet everyone has an opinion. It's the same on almost every other political issue. There should be a competence test that everyone has to take before they register to vote.

Yeah, agreed. Running in airports during these "terrorist" times (still makes me laugh) isn't that great, but tackling at the first sight -- not sure, he may have done the right thing if you imagine the "what if" of her actually being someone that was going to, or have done, some kind of harm.

Because, to be truthful, airports and airplanes aren't most terrorists first choice of target. For that matter, neither are churches or religious facilities. If you happened to not know, terrorists in America are mostly home grown, and the majority of them are NOT Muslim.

thank you rosalind, it's only the Muslim ones that get shown though to make us lool bad. one of my dads best friends work in the media and he was astounded at how much they keep tothemselves eg. Christian Jewish and other religions, it is NOT the muslims all the time

IF she was running toward security, then it would be reasonable to presume she was trying to run past them, and tackling was justified. What sane person runs toward the security gate?

Where does she say she was running THROUGH or TOWARDS security? She merely states that she was running in an airport when security tackled her. Thoroughly read the OP before you comment.

You don't fly much, huh, #28? Security is nowhere near the arrivals hall. It's at the other end of the airport, at departures. What's the point in scanning someone for bombs who just got off a plane? If she saw him as soon as he came into the hall, he would have just been leaving baggage reclaim and customs. Neither of which would make a great target for a terrorist attack.

Ummm actually unless you are coming from an international flight you don't have to go through customs. There is usually a different exit for those coming in internationally. Idiot!
