Speechless

I don’t believe my eyes – TSA is implementing security measures that actually make sense? Hopefully, this will not get shut down by screams that this is “profiling”.

Yes, this is profiling. And the important thing to understand is that when profiling is based on solid data, confirming that people matching this profile are more likely to be the bad guys, then using said profiling makes security screening more efficient. And, because the focus of the people doing the screening is on a smaller group of people, it also makes screening of that group more effective.

Didn’t think I’d be saying this: Good call, TSA! Keep it up!
