Quote of the day - Security Theater

"If they can’t keep a cell phone out of a septuagenarian’s high-security prison cell, they can’t keep anything out of anywhere."

- Maj. Caudill.......Err I mean Marko Kloos


Look, trying to rid humans of weapons is not only stupid, it's an exercise in futility.  You cannot keep people from carrying weapons, not in the most totalitarian shithole, leftist kumbaya utopia, or maximum security prison.

Manson was caught several times with a cellphone, which is contraband.  He was also caught with an improvised weapon.  State can't keep weapons and cell phones out of the hands of one of the most notorious murderers in modern history.  I've pointed out the "prison" example to supporters of TSA style jackbooted thuggery on both sides of the political aisle, yet an example so simple and so true simply does not compute for them.
