Police veteran questions TSA procedures
I often get selected for additional screening at airport security, and I always wonder why they choose me. It confuses me why a water bottle is dangerous while laptop batteries are not. A 24-year police veteran asks these questions of the TSA in an excellent critique.
"what we allow TSA screeners to do in order to maximize efficiency and enhance our perception of safety, or what we really need them to do in order to preserve our rights and dignity and enhance our actual safety."
