    I wonder if they're using passive millimeter wave and want to frisk people that show something of interest. I wonder how the frisks go down, male on female or? The "searches and screenings" might be just a scarecrow thrown out there to discourage the casual terrorist. You have to be able to decline the search. I don't see how they can get around that.

    I don't think earplugs will do the trick. The sound waves are hitting you whether or not you can hear their full blast.

    But yes, it is a crystal clear signal about "how much they hate and fear us."

    Actually, googling for "earplugs vs lrad" returns a lot of results that suggest hearing protection does, in fact, nullify the effects of this device. If so, that's definitely a good thing.

    No it was never publicized because the media was more enthralled with the D List celebs (Loser Lohan, Whacko Kardashwho) in town attending parties and the Fire Department chipping ice off Jerry Jonesville. I wish it had as that would have been the perfect thing to throw right in Nappy's face during her PR tour. After the disaster the Superbowl turned into I don't think Arlington will ever get another Superbowl.

    Easy: The cop tells the rider, "If you decline this search, you will be placed under arrest."

    Except I don't think this has a good outcome for them if the arrestee decides to sue.
