I woke up at about 1:45 this morning and thought, oh no, I forgot to write the blog!! I’m not making excuses but…I have my little (almost) three-year old grandson staying with me because his mom just had a baby and I have been SOOOO busy, that I totally forgot!
But this is what I wanted to blog about; today I was sitting in the courthouse, just in front of the metal detectors watching the people enter. A young woman approached carrying a baby and as she came through the metal detector, it went off. So she says to the guard, it must be the cell phone. She takes the cell phone out of her pocket, puts it on TOP of the scanning device that all bags, purses, etc must go through, then she goes around the metal detector and back through without setting it off; picks up her cell phone and continues into the courthouse! She was not the only one that did this and I just don’t understand what the purpose of the security systems are for, if people can avoid putting certain items through the scanning process. Can’t a cell phone be modified to become something other than what it looks like? If we are this lax with security at the courthouse, where else are we lacking in our security?
