The latest example of airline security gone insane is provided by rock star and stand-up comedian Henry Rollins, who was recently reported to the Australian government for reading a book on an aeroplane.

"US rocker and writer Henry Rollins was reported to the National Security hotline during his recent Australian tour because of a book he was reading on flight to Brisbane."

"A furious Rollins was informed he was "nominated as a possible threat" for reading Jihad: The Rise Of Militant Islam In Central Asia."

Rollins (pictured above) then received a letter from the Australian government warning him not to read such books in future. His response was to post the letter on his website and tell the Australian government to "go f***k themselves."

To this day we still have a situation where not one item of cargo that enters the plane is inspected but Grandpa has to remove his shoes because he might be a suicide bomber. Even Playmobile have got in on the act by releasing a security check-in toy, brainwashing children into accepting routine violations of their 4th amendment as normal.

Airport security is non-existent because it is directed at innocent people just trying to go about their business. Screeners are trained not to profile for fear of discrimination. How many white pregnant women, 4-year-old boys, famous rock stars and senators have hijacked planes in the last few decades?
