I recently wondered what the airport does with all the stuff they steal at the security checkpoint.
The person that I asked was annoyed because he claimed it was not stealing because I had an option to not go through the line and board my plane.
After thinking about this awhile, I still think it is theft.
It is not theft because I have an option to pick A and keep my stuff.
Give me your car or I kill your family member.
According to Rule 1, Scenario 2 is neither theft, nor murder, because you have a choice.
I think the airline is stealing property. What do you think?
