You can't blame the government for being worried and trying to prevent an attack. How do you think people who want to grow up to be pilots feel? Imagine how closely people in flight training are looked at. But it's worth it if it saves lives. To most people someone who is going to college who happens to be taking pictures of potential targets is very suspicious. The hijackers were all here on student visas for college, and they all visited the sites they wanted to attack to learn about it. *BTW, are you from another country going to college here? Because then mabe he was even more suspicious of an accent or something. You can't blame the police for doing their job. It's funny you say "people should wake up". People woke up after the attacks and realized we have to be on alert. If you have a problem with this country being extra cautious I suggest you go watch the news from about this time 2 years ago. Then you will know why we are so cautious.
