To any frequent flyer, this is a familiar scene: the “one way” hallway between the secure area and the baggage claim. What is conspicuously missing, however, is the person at the desk on the left side to ensure that this stays a “one way” hallway. There are no auto-sensors or anything at LGA to ensure that no one can pass. I’m not even sure there are cameras here. Anyone walking this way would have had all-access to the terminal with no screening at all.
$1B spent on machines to digitally strip search you, in the process making children cry, causing sex abuse survivors to have flashbacks, humiliating the disabled, and trashing our constitution… all for nothing with the back door left wide open.
