Yeah, it is stupid. Airport security has gotten way outta control. And studies show that we're no more safe now then we were before 9/11. All of this extra security is just to make white people feel safe(note: I am white and give a shit about airport security). The late great George Carlin has a great bit about airport security.

Knee-jerk reaction, but, well, what the hell did you think was going to happen? Sucks about "looking suspicious" though.

or maybe looking suspicious as in having a darker skin tone? I have met some really racist Security Personel at airports so you can't really blame the OP. besides, she saved the person checking from getting mauled by T-Shirt shrapnel.

I agree...even though this wasn't technically a joke, America is still ridiculous. sure, 9/11 was a big eye opening moment for Americans everywhere but they've taken it way too far.

Can't take a joke? 9/11 is still fresh in the minds of many Americans including myself and just because it happened ten years ago means we should let up on security. So you'd rather have more lenient security and risk another tragedy to occur, or just suck the fuck up and get through security? Seriously it's not that big of a deal if you just follow procedure and don't make retarded comments about "exploding". I've travelled alone and with family many times and security us never a hass

You're so stupid. You obviously don't actually know much about 9/11 and the TSA. They couldn't care less about terrorists they just want us to know who has the power.

#47, If you're afraid of normal clothes, you should talk with someone about it. And if you think the added airport "security" is doing anything but giving silly people a false sense of security, you should do some research about the topic instead of flying of your holster.

I hate airport security. Every one I've encountered was stupid, stubborn, condescending and full of attitude. With all the authority bestowed on them, one would think that they could hire better people. I honestly don't think that they're effective at preventing terror threats. For me, they are the worst thing to deal with in air travel.

the law allows them to disregard probable cause. its one of those laws that by-passes the constitution because of public support at the time.
