Via The Denver Post, a security agent groping a pre-boarding passenger.
Our POV: The rules of flying have changed forever due to 9/11. By buying that airplane ticket, the consumer is consenting to every aspect of security measure that the airline has outlined before a customer can board an air craft.
If the consumer doesn't want to be groped or walk through revealing scanners, find another way of travel. Bottom line. Threats of, if you touch my junk, I'll have you arrested will get the flyer no where. Once the consumer passes certain check points, i.e. the check-in gate and handing over his baggage, he has no rights anymore.
There are other choices: Bus, Rail, Car.
And DO WE LOOK FORWARD to Amtrack on our travels to San Diego and San Francisco. Take in the scenery. Pop open a book. Relish in the fact that we weren't fondled until we were safely ensconced in University Park or The Castro.
