Just frisk 'em all for the sake of better security
There's a totally unwanted fracas going on regarding the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security decision to frisk India's armed forces chiefs at airports.
Overall, it was amazing how those responsible for security at airports and in aircraft shirk their duties, putting everyone around in peril. If the same attitude towards security continues, I would not be surprised if a serious disaster in the form of a terror attack occured. By then, it would be too late.
A simple adherence to the rules, by airline & security personnel as well as by passengers, would minimize the risk of disaster. It is likely that passengers will spend an extra 10 minutes in the queue, airline personnel at the check-in counter will spend an extra 10 minutes on the job and the security check folks will take 10 minutes extra to complete the necessary checks on all passengers, but those are minor irritants taking into account what could be prevented.
