Random security checks are done to ensure the safety of all passengers aboard a plane. However, we can’t ignore the fact that random checks aren’t as random as the TSA would like us to believe. If you have a Middle-Eastern-sounding name, you can bet it’s going to raise suspicion.
But @ahmeirda here wasn’t subject to such a test. To celebrate his small victory, he posted on Twitter how he could make it into the airport and onto his plane without getting felt up by TSA agents. However, he later updated his post by saying that “they came for him” while he was boarding his plane. Better luck next time, @ahmeirda.
