I got my Swiss army knife basically "destroyed" because I didn't leave the checkpoint and submit to being researched. I felt bad right after I had given it over to TSA
and they told me it had already been "destroyed" so I couldn't get it back. This was a AUS
flight I took last summer. (06/03)
That guy with the pepper spray is indeed an a$$hole
If I was on the flight I would have used his spray on him.
In regards to lax security at airports...I've often wondered, standing in line waiting to get checked at AUS
, how easy it would be to get on board with something. Those TSA
officials are still pretty asleep if they haven't had their coffee in the morning. Doesn't make me feel very safe knowing that.
A liberal is a man who is right most of the time, but he's right too soon.
