    Lol… betcha the robbers and the criminals are the ones voting for the sensors. What use are the sensors when everyone that passes through them beeps and the guard doesn’t even bother checking the bags. I even got through airport sensors and x-ray with a scissor in my hand-carry. And it was only in Singapore when I realized I had it because they checked my bag.
