    I would rather face the small risk of random crime, than to live like a dog in a cage, being told i am protected. I choose liberty, not tyranny.

    This stinks, and plays right into the hands of the TSA. Interested to learn about this woman’s recent history.

    NO I am not a tsa worker, I only say we need more security,, after all the attempted bombings on planes, Sure this is only drugs, but what would it take to be a bomb, not much, and she managed to gain access to a plane, she came from another country with it, and was on a plane, TELL ME THAT IS SAFE . I rather they know before she boarded the plane. So freedom or death,,, I rather have freedom and live.

    This should have been caught in Santo Domingo before she got on the plane so they could absorb the cost of her incarceration.

    FIRST of all her conflicting answers are what prompted a pat down search.
    second of all none of you idiots would be able to pick out a drug smuggler even if you had a gun to your heads. No Body scanner involved idiots besides I’m sure you guys think shes the only drug smuggler coming through Logan and now all the rest are scared to feed americas insatiable appepitite for the white powdery hurry up and go substance. IM SORRY FOR ALL YOU WHO PREVIOUSLY POSTED that COCAINE HAS ruined your lives

    I AGREE WITH BEN FRANKLIN
