Excessive Airport Security
One major story this year was the controversy over airport security. The values of national security and personal privacy clashed, and the question of where to draw the line arose this past year. This particular article talks about physical pat downs by airport security, and how many people felt violated. Another controversy was the use of full body scanners that could potentially show more of a person's body than they felt comfortable with. TSA assured people that the machines did not expose private areas, and it was not excessive. But it did open the question of national security vs. personal privacy. The question is still rampant today with continued threats of national security, and the worry that if things became lacked, terrorists would see this as an opportunity to strike once again.
