    April 27, 2013 Just received word that 80 year old friends leaving to come home were stopped at the airport, officials claimed that the man had a bullet in his luggage. This is a false charge. The man is in Jail at this time, his wife is standing by at the jail not knowing what to do. I'm sure the police and the airport people are in this together. Any body know any way to help these people?

      Security personnel should be required to show their open hands to both the passenger and to a CCTV immediately before handling a person's luggage. The potential for abuse must be addressed.
