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.
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.
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.
O.O what an asshole guard!
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...
