We're from the Government, and We're Here to Protect You

cbs2chicago.com - Fliers Complain About X-Rated Security Screenings: "TSA Agents Forced Woman To Remove Nipple Rings, Pulled Pants Off Disabled Man
When travelers go to the airport, they know what kind of security to expect: luggage searches, metal detectors and shoe inspections.

It's all part of our post 9-11 reality enforced by the Transportation Security Adminstration. But as CBS 2 Investigator Pam Zekman reports, thousands of travelers have complained that some of these screenings can become abusive and even x-rated."

  1. It doesn't surprise me at all. I think the government was waiting for an excuse to go super Big Brother on us. They've been inching that way for years, taking away little bits of our privacy and civil liberties at a time. It's both parties. They are the two sides of the same coin. Neither are out there really to protect our liberty and freedom. They are out for their own gain. They just pay us lip service.
