    The consistency is the inconsistency of the whole screening process...the terrorists never know what kind of screening they might encounter, just like none of us fully understand the national threat advisory level orange represents...

    It's been done and generally they don't say anything but the police will say "you have the right to remain silent"

    So I ask again...is there ANYTHING wrong with requesting a supervisor and a LEO to be present BEFORE I'm touched in any manner for secondary screening. They want to search me and pat me down...fine and dandy...but the second they touch my twig and berries or anything between my belt-line and crotch, front or back, there are gonna be issues.

    There is no material difference between an airport and a train station. There is only a symbolic difference, and I, for one, refuse to live my life in a prison constructed of the piss-poor semiotics of television news anchors.

    I should add that just because YOU (or a single judge) feels that one public venue offers a "reasonable expectation" of privacy whereas another does not merely serves to illustrate the slippery slope that we as Americans are on. Who knows what will be reasonable next?

    Unless, of course, they read the sheet on top of the conveyor belt in EWR that clearly shows what they will be randomly screening for throughout the day and calls their buddy. It's marked as SSI, but hey. I mean, it's there EVERY TIME.
