Austin airport will begin random searches of cars

Score one for the terrorists. Wow.

Joshunda Sanders writes in The Austin American-Stateman:

This afternoon, police at the Austin-Bergstrom International airport will be erecting a barricade where the road splits at the entrance of the terminal, spokeswoman Leslie Schneiweiss said Friday morning.

Though the airport is not operating under an orange alert, the police decided to set up a checkpoint where cars will be randomly stopped and searched as an enhanced security measure.

The checks will be completely random, Schneiweiss said, and drivers who do not want to have their cars searched will have to circle the airport and park. They will not be allowed to pull up to curbside.
