I’m talking about the new things they’re confiscating at the airport. They say the products are unopened, but they’re giving them to the homeless in Phoenix. Okay, then how do you know they’re not explosives that you’re handing to the homeless, since you haven’t opened them? Apparently, the airport people, in Phoenix at least, know quite well that the stuff they took off of the passengers in line were not explosives. So why did they take it in the first place?
Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport planned to give 11 boxes of surrendered items to the city’s human services department, which will give the unopened bottles of shampoo, toothpaste and other items to homeless shelters, airport spokeswoman Lexie Van Haren said.
Same thing in Pennsylvania – seems YOU can’t take it on the plane because it might be a bomb, but THEY can sell it on eBay without knowing if it’s a bomb, or they’re sure it’s not a bomb, so then why did they take it in the first place?:
In Pennsylvania, state officials were considering pulling some discarded items for a state program that resells on eBay any items of value relinquished at airport security checkpoints, said Edward Myslewicz, spokesman for the General Services Department.
It’s duct tape all over again.
