Company at San Francisco International Airport Neglects Baggage Screening

"Baggage screeners at San Francisco International Airport allege that dozens if not hundreds of bags identified by X-ray machines as high-risk bomb threats are loaded onto planes each day without any human inspection in a clear violation of federal rules."

"In interviews conducted over the past year, six company screeners told The San Francisco Examiner that supervisors regularly clear dozens of suspicious bags in rapid succession with no inspection during peak travel times, a practice they say has gone on for years."
