Courthouse security - asleep at the switch

Scanners (and their operators) are there at the courthouse to keep people from doing dangerous things inside the court. For example, stopping someone with a bomb or weapon in their clothes or bags, who might present a threat to anyone else in the courthouse. And we all know how annoying it is to walk through the detectors or get "wanded" by a sheriff.

But the Toledo Blade tells the story of the scanner picking up a gun in a purse, but the sheriff paying no attention.

Story here. (via State Bar of Michigan blog).
