I wasn’t trying to cause trouble, but in unpacking my carry-on backpack after my recent trip to San Diego, I discovered my large Leatherman tool in a side pocket. The tool has a four inch blade, pliers, wire cutters and a bunch of screwdrivers. I generally the tool in my backpack in my car along with other stuff for emergencies. I thought I had emptied the pack completely before repacking for the flight, but obviously forgot the side pocket
It passed through airport security both on both ends of the trip—in Detroit and San Diego.
That’s a scary thought.
