Airlines getting high on power of Patriot Act

Tamera Jo Freeman lost custody of her children after an incident on a Frontier Airlines flight. “A woman spanking her child is not as great a threat to aviation as members of Al Qaeda with box cutters,” says one expert.

She also spent three months in prison for the incident, which clearly presented no real threat to anyone’s security whatsoever, much less being terrorism.

It”s time to roll these noxious, highly abused laws back.
