We had already written about US airports about to fingerprint all 10 fingers of foreign passengers. Now another story shows again how far the so-called “security agents” can abuse their power.
A teenage boy from Orlando (Florida, USA), said that a TSA (Transportation Security Administration) agent endangered his life by opening (and there-by contaminating) his backup sterile feeding tube that he carries with him in case of an emergency. He reportedly said: “Please don’t open it” and the TSA agent replied: “I have to open it whether you like it or not. If I can’t open it, I can’t let you on the plane.”
So it looks like another good example of the “I gotta a job to do and I’m gonna do it whether you like it or not” American mentality. But of course it could also be another good example of the “I found a mouse in my cheeseburger and I’m gonna sue you for 10 million dollars” American mentality… ;-)
