They are probably looking for something specific, as this is not the standard.

1. Wtf is this a police state?? 2. They are only (visually) scanning carryons, not rollers. This is utterly senseless and absurd, right???

Instead of being all pissy about it, you should be wondering why. You are about to be thousands of feet off the ground for 3 hours with a couple of hundred people you know nothing about. But hey what could possibly happen?

It could have been a last minute tip to law enforcement regarding a threat. The scenario you described is not typical. Someone in the airport may have seen something and made a report. Better a minor inconvenience than a disaster.

A2 -- if they were really looking for something, they shouldn't have let 200 of us board with our rollers unchecked. And all of us had been through airport security already -- They should've shut the whole airport down and rechecked everyone if they thought security was breached. So: This is the kind of thing that sounds good on paper, but is absurd when you really think about it, just doesn't make any sense. Likely a bunch of people who have to "do something" to stay on shift. And we all go along with it like sheep. I'm all for real, actual security. I'm not for absurdist police state theater security.
