Senate Candidate Weighs in on Airport Security Checks
On Thursday, October 11th, I read a Westword article about women being singled out and subjected to security checks at DIA. These security checks involved electronic scans by a male security guard with a hand-held scanning device. During the scanning process, the device touched the womans private parts. He then had a female security guard with surgical gloves conduct a pat down search of her entire body while a male military guardsman stood by, smirking.
My wife flew out of DIA that same Thursday. After waiting several hours, she finally made it through the security stations and boarded her Frontier flight. My wife happens to be a very beautiful woman. Just as she got comfortable in her seat, a security official came on board and informed her that the computer had randomly selected her to undergo a private security investigation, similar to the scans described in Westword.
A few weeks ago the president of my firm flew out of DIA and went through exactly the same process (electronically scanned and patted down). Shes a very attractive female citizen, just like the others.
Three beautiful women and three random security checks.
How many blonde, blue-eyed women have terrorized the airlines in recent memory? Or ever, for that matter? When your girlfriend, wife, sister, mother, daughter or female friend travels through DIA, will she have a similar experience?
Other Americans and the citizens of Colorado may be proud of our new Homeland Security, but I am not!
