Do you think/want the TSA to be in charge of security if we build high speed rail?
Around Thanksgiving time in the US, a controversial news story was the use of x-ray scanners and pat downs at the airports by the TSA. The most common argument for avoiding the use of either procedure is to take a different form of transportation.
Now that high-speed rail is becoming a reality, with the government investing over $50 billion, wouldnt they want to protect their investment with their own security?
How do you feel about the TSA at places other than airports?
Should the TSA be in charge of security on trains?
How far should the TSA be taken to protect us from the evil terrorists, most of which we help create via our foreign policy?
