Courthouse security is absurd

Wednesday, November 9, 2016

Dear editor,

The latest absurdity of the (Elmore County) Courthouse security is that citizens have to remove their belts. This in addition to having two armed agents, a metal detector and prohibiting pocket knives.

Some official must think that terrorists are lurking behind every tree and building when we doubt that any would be terrorist has even heard of Mountain Home. Not even the Capitol in Boise is as strict.

It is time for people to get real and relax.
