B.C. man with hip replacement becomes latest victim of airport "security"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

A B.C. man with a metal hip was turned away from his flight to a wedding. Why?

Because a female security guard said the man could only be patted down by a male guard, and none was around.

It didn't matter that the would-be passenger and the female guard knew each other and each other's families, and she knew he wasn't a terrorist.

"Rules are rules."

So many government bureaucrats like this airport guard clearly get plenty of job satisfaction from this kind of pointless petty tyranny.

These guards have never foiled real terrorists, but they've humiliated and inconvenienced millions of people through this "security theater."

Adding insult to injury, these same guards constantly steal from passengers.

I've got a suggestion for put-upon airport passengers...

I have always been treated with the highest respect and dignity going through airport security and going across the US borders with never a problem. Yet I’ve worked as an human rights activist going on 9 years and as a free news sharing citizen reporter publishing highly controversial news stories that corporate media refuses to touch and sometimes The Rebel Media will my video use in thier news stories – As a civil information activist I have done my part having 2 petitions read in the House of Commons one by first the NDP Libby Davis and more recently the leader of the Green Party Elizabeth May a calling on the Canadian Government to investigate the events of 9/11… An yet this poor guy with a hip replacement is treated like a terrorist! For the sake of posterity I’ll share one of my latest news stories: YouTube MP Linda Duncan – Investigating 9/11 is not a high priority for the NDP

A free press is bad news for corruption
Great Story Ezra!

I love flying. Doesn’t bother me at all being searched.
Brinkman as usual you are an idiot. Blogging must require zero intellect.

This is why I no longer fly if the trip takes by car 8 hours. Here is the reasons I live 1.5 hour driver away from Toronto international airport I have to be there 3 hours before the flight I have to pay outrageous parking many times the plane is delayed It take 1 hour to collect my baggage it can take 1 hour to rent a car and I have to do it all over again when I return. lets ad up the trip 8 hours by car cost ( $65.00 fuel ) 1.5 + 3 + 1 +2.5 flight +1 +1 = 7 hours cost car fuel $10.00 parking $65.00 flight $400.00 car rental $275.00 =$ 950.00 plus abuse from these gangsters in uniform.
