I saw a random bag inspection desk for the first time today at my subway station. I didn’t get stopped though, thin Asian guys with glasses don’t exactly look like primary terrorist suspects these days. It’d be interesting to hear the briefing these guys get, because we all know it must be something like “Okay, so you’ll be checking mostly the bags of Arab guys obviously, but try to get a black or white person every now and then so it can look like we’re still being somewhat random. But try not to stop a white person if you can help it. Also, stopping old people gets us on the news so don’t stop them either.”
