Video of Insane Security Line at Chicago's Midway Airport Goes Viral

The TSA hasn't been having stellar press as of late. The most recent debacle is courtesy of Chicago's Midway International Airport, and its never-ending security line. A video of the line, taken on Thursday, went viral as people expressed shock and dismay at the hours-long wait travelers had to endure.

The video garnered over one million views in less than a day and was on the front page of Reddit.

First: Holy cow. That is one heck of a line.

Second: How is this not a bigger security threat than a four-ounce bottle of shampoo? That's a lot of people crammed into a very small space, and it looks like a stampede waiting to happen. There's no way this is safe.

As a reminder, the TSA recently failed 95 percent of security tests and had a bit of a theft problem among its workers.

Perhaps the Chicago airports should take a page from New York's book and threaten to switch to a private security firm as well. This is completely unacceptable.
