Should the TSA use ethnic-stereotyping, or continue with the present security procedures?
Tel Aviv airport (Isreal) is considered one of the safest airports in the world. They use ethnic-stereotyping as a way to filter protential terrorist from getting on planes. They also have you on camera before you even get to the airport. Should TSA use these measures instead of groping us, or taking porno-pics of our families?
We should not ethnically stereotype individuals in the United States. I understand the desire to do so and it would solve some issues, but it important for us to set the standard of good behavior and human rights. We can not violate the rights of certain races just to make us feel safe.
Besides a white man could just as easily decide they want to blow up a plane as an Arab. Ask the people of Oklahoma if they think white men won't commit acts of terrorism and you will get your answer.
Nude photos are also not pornographic. Nudity is the natural state of all gods' creatures and it is nothing to be ashamed of. Flying is a privilege and a choice so if anyone does not want to submit themselves to the TSA's security measures they can drive or ride a bus, train or boat.
Absolutely. This is a no-brainer, but we're too PC to do it, and that's really too bad as Granny will continue to be frisked and groped on her way to see the grandkids.
