We live in scary times, and obviously, something needs to be done but this? This may be Pandora’s box cracking open. A few loaded questions:
This may cause more problems than it solves. I’ve had my car searched a couple of times before entering the Midtown Tunnel. It’s inconvenient, but you don’t mind since it’s before you get to the tunnel. “Random” Searches in a crowded Subway at the entrance Only?
The Police Commissioner Ray Kelly says “It’s a safety issue. People don’t consider any measures that you take for safety to be an inconvenience. This is New York City.”
What’s next, strip searches? Take your shoes of for the Bomb Detector, please? It just could be that taking measures like these: the Terrorists have really begun to win.
