40. But I'm not guilty!
Whatever happened to due process?
I object to presenting myself as guilty - to a TSA employee yet - in order to be deemed innocent.
I don't know what the answer is ultimately, but giving up any more liberty doesn't work for me.
I do not believe that the TSA is capable of actually preventing an incident. I find them to be arrogant, poorly trained, and utterly incompetent individuals for the most part.
Whoever thought we would accept virtual strip searches in this country? What's next? If there's a car bomb (God forbid), will we pull into scanners in highway rest stops? What about street scanners? Ridiculous? I think not.
