Civil Liberties, Subways Searches, & Common Sense

The civil liberties groups in America are a bit more than out of touch, they are in another galaxy:

bag searches

Per WaPo:

The New York Civil Liberties Union said the searches violate basic rights and will inconvenience New Yorkers, but the group stopped short of threatening a legal challenge.

So lets see, given the events of the week, would I be ok with some random searches on the subway to protect the safety of everyone, or would I get real hung up on "probable cause" and insist that the letter of the law of the fourth amendment not have a little latitude here?

If you have to think about that very long, then you should probably stay inside and not be on the subway anyway.........................
