Re "How, exactly did the kid evade security at San Jose International Airport?" (Editorial, April 23): The stowaway, a 15-year-old boy, who survived the 5 1/2- hour flight from California to Hawaii brought major attention about security at airport, especially how easily someone can slip past secured fences, unnoticed. This editorial expresses the right amount of inquiry to address the issue of security safety.
I feel airport securities need to raise their awareness in stowaways to a higher level. It seems the security on the inside airports are more strict than on the outside, when both places should be just as cautious. Due to the recurring problem of stowaways, it is only reasonable to secure and keep a further lookout. The proper thing to do is make sure the rest of the airport is provided with same amount of security, as it should always be.
