    According to NAIA, the average collection of bullets is about 1,500 a year and only 5-10 file complain. If you are coming back to the US and a bullet is planted at your luggage, it it cheaper to give a BIG DOLLARS settlement to the corrupt airport investigator. Because,if you file charges, you will miss your flight, which cost more money for a tickets, checked-in a hotel, just to look and pay for a lawyer,you will be late from work,some loose their jobs in the Middle East for arriving late from work. This is our country now.
