Your government at work

Your government at work

Does anybody else think it’s stupid that airline pilots are forced to go through security checks to make sure they’re not carrying weapons onto the plane?

And they go through security like everybody else. “It is pretty demeaning to stand there with four stripes on your uniform and take off your shoes,” Duisik says, though he adds he understands the reasons.

If a pilot wanted to crash the plane, he doesn’t need a weapon. He can just push forward on the yoke and pull the throttle back to zero thrust and the plane will crash.

This is as dumb as searching grandmothers, toddlers, and Al Gore.
