In the name of security
As if mistaken identity isn’t traumatic enough…as if all the security at airports isn’t enough, try going through these scenarios. A man claiming to be law enforcement pins a passenger to his seat. It is later discovered that the “officer’s” name is that of a retired officer (in other words, he wasn’t who he said he was, right?). Go figure! In the story linked at the bottom of the post, a man was detained for questioning because he was speaking in a foreign language to a friend about a sports rivalry on his cell phone. His response after the ordeal: “that he would not speak in a foreign language on his cell phone at an airport in the future.”
