Hand Searches?

Is airport security hand searching all carry-ons?

How about frisking everybody?

If not, they need to be.

At German airports, every carry-on is being hand-searched. Much better that the X-Ray stuff.

If anyone plans on flying in the near future, I would think twice about bringing fragile equipment in your carry-on. A friend of mine was flying out of DIA yesterday and one of the security knuckleheads literally DUMPED his photopack all over the inspection table, ended up damaging two lenses. He then preceded to take off lens caps, body caps, all to the protest of my friend. The security guy whom could barely speak english, then asked what's the matter, got something to hide in there? Jeez...
