Yet another post on intrusive security checks

Now as far as I'm concerned, if one person has to go through a full security screening, there should be no exceptions. No politician, celebrity, anyone should be spared the indignity of a full body scan / 'pat down' if all the rest of those passing through an airport have to do so. This includes their entire entourage.

If there's no discrimination for us 'lower orders', then there should be no exception for anyone else. Only fair isn't it? Anything else is just elitist, and isn't that very bad?

Sounds like a democratic solution, except that a democracy where everyone is presumed guilty until proven innocent and subject to the search to prove it (remember the 4th amendment?) is just a police state in drag.

But then again, you don't live here any more. Maybe you saw that coming?

I saw this coming a long time ago. Why do you think Mrs S and I decided to take such a huge financial, moral and social risk to cut our family free?

At least Canada still has a system based on common law.
