Earlier this year, a former LA cop went on a shooting spree, and LAPD responded by shooting random pickup truck drivers around the city.
Meanwhile, approximately one hundred Americans died horrible twisted metal deaths in their cars yesterday. You are far more likely to be killed driving to the airport than on a plane or at the airport.
BTW – TSA is implementing new policies. I got on a flight in Buffalo yesterday without taking off my coat, shoes or taking out my laptops.
