    The difference is that w/the human being, the cost to the public would be significantly less, and at least 1,000 less kids would be groped.
    There is armed police in every US airport, the TSA are there to screen for potential drug/terrorist activity and to safeguard the public on the flights.

    Interesting you should say that today. Yesterday, I heard on the radio that one of Chicago's aldermen proposed removing Chicago police officers from O'Hare Field -- which would have left just unarmed security. It was dissed. Just yesterday. Early in the morning. Before this happened at LAX.

    No there should always be armed guards at every airport in my opinion. Even British airports have armed police patrolling at all times.

    The tsa is there to grope young girls and kids. And airport security in the US is so ridiculous that it's non-existent.

    The TSA screens bags for prohibited items.

    They are not police, and are not involved in drug interdiction or terrorist plots.

    TSA is not responsible for flight safety, the Air Marshal service is.

    No they make sure banned items do not get on the plane hence flight safety, drug interdiction and terrorist plots. First line of defense and if they don't do their job the air marshal job is a lot harder.

    Actually, no; the "mass" of murders committed in the U.S. are by blacks, who also represent the "mass" of murder victims.

    Depends on whether the air marshal gets to fly first class. If they don't, they are also likely subject to tsa body inspections.
