Comment: Why is airport security so sacred anyway?

(See in situ)

Why is airport security so sacred anyway?

All this security at airports is completely unnecessary and total nonsense. Once the cockpits were locked to prevent hijacking the screening, groping and scanning at airports became obsolete.

There are many more places to inflict greater death and destruction than an airplane yet that is the only place we have this highly intrusive security. A high school football game or other such events have more people in a more compact location. Yet there are no scanning and groping stations to get in. So what is the big deal about an airplane? People have lost all sense of relevance about security and flying.

The shoe bomber and underwear bombers boarded in other countries so the security measures we have are completely useless anyway.

Airport security should return to pre-911 levels for boarding planes. Anything more is just nonsense.
