Security scanning beyond the airlines
In an effort to keep our sky's safe; several years ago we implemented a rule that every suitcase and computer that went on a plane had to be scanned for dangerous items and unsafe contents. Everyone is scanned - no matter what race, creed or color you are.
We are living in unsafe times today and since our country is more of a melting pot for sure, which adds to a rich and diverse country.
Why not scan items that come through mail order like US mail, Fed Ex, UPS etc.
It may be a huge effort to accomplish however packages that repeatedly come to the same address filled with such items as contents to build bombs can be monitored and followed up on.
Maybe we can avoid some of the tragedy that is happening today that could have maybe been averted.
As the airlines have shown--if a passenger has nothing to hide in their luggage they don't mind the extra few minutes to do a scan.
Why should people mind having their boxes scanned?
