Will Grigg?s Liberty Minute

May 22, 2008

Last April, 74-year-old Florida resident Elena Reichman tried to fly to New York to commemorate Passover with her adult children. A security screening at the Palm Beach International Airport triggered unwelcome memories of the Romanian immigrant?s childhood experiences in a Nazi concentration camp.

Subjected to a hands-on search and the use of an electronic ?wand? by TSA personnel, Elena was forced to admit that she had concealed some cash by safety-pinning it to the inside of her waistband. Ordered to retrieve the money, Elena complained that doing so would require her to disrobe. Finally driven beyond composure, Elena reportedly shoved a deputy Sheriff who was continuing the invasive search. The elderly woman ? who suffers from heart disease and diabetes ? was arrested, handcuffed, and charged with felony assault.

Mrs. Reichman later complained that our airport security and law enforcement system remind her of the Nazis. In making that assessment, she speaks with the authority of one who survived the Holocaust.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
