Does anyone know if there is a quota to ripping off personal belongings from passengers by US Airport security? Are travelling passengers not allowed personal belongings anymore? Is everything metal a security risk? I am talking about a small fingernail clipper here. A weekend trip only require an overnight bag/carryon. There's a small manicure set with a large & small nailclipper, scissors. Airport security opens bag and remove the small nailclipper, leaving the large one and scissors which has a really sharp point. Is a small nailclipper now considered a security risk? Does this make sense or are these idiots taking item from passengers for their own use? or sale? now the manicure set is missing a piece.
I think that the paranoia of travel is taken to the extreme, passengers are being taken advantage of, and for all the brave passengers who show up to disgrace these idiots at the airports, my hats off to them and thank you.
