There has to be line, beyond which young, American children, are safe and secure from danger and harassment, including a government pat down. How ironic and absurd it is, that in the name of protecting these citizens, especially children, that those very rights are violated by their own government. Hey TSA, hands off our children.
No. The TSA should take great care to be consistent in their efforts to keep people safe. In some countries, committing suicide in an effort to kill others is considered a great thing. It is very possible that people would sacrifice their own children to get an illegal item on to an aircraft, and we should not take that risk.
