I am sorry but I don't get the point of this thread.
What is the point of refusing a perfectly reasonable request? And if you are so far up your own a*se that you think it is an infringement of your human rights, get a life.
Its actually the same in the UK there is no power to force someone to be searched by security guards. The only people that are allowed to forceably search is the Police then must have grounds for it. If someone was to just hold you or detain you in anyway for the purpose of the search then this is an arrest. Which could be unlawful if you do not have anything. The law is actually the same here. As well as having a criminal remedy there is personal remedy in the law of Tort for personal alarm and distress, against the store and the person concerned.
It was funny the other day when I was out shopping with my hubby. The girl in a Big department store asked if she could look in his bag, he said "certainly" and as she looked in, he shouted "BOO" and it made her jump out of her skin. We both left the store in hysterics!
Don't see a problem with it. If it the way this country does it then I'll just accept it, I chose to move here so I accept it. In my opinion that is what has gone wrong with the UK all the Human Rights stuff.
Here we go again, the look in the bag thread, the last one got nasty and pulled off line, as I said last time the security check is part of what goes on, for thoses of you who don't like it don't go shopping or leave your bag in the car or if it bothers you that much why not go back to the UK.
I'm sure you came here for a better life, it is a better life but you have to accept changes what would the wrld be like if it was all like the UK
I have no problem with this as I've nothing to hide
Definately couldn't be bothered with arguing the point with them! Takes two seconds to show them and longer and a bit of stress to not show them
If the assistants are polite and ask in a reasonable manner, which I am sure they are and they do, then I dont have a problem with showing them the contents of my bag. My only problem is with staff who have attitude for no reason, which is becoming more and more common in the UK. They seem to think they are doing you a favour stopping their conversations with each other to serve you and make you feel like they are rather inconvenienced by it!!
I have only been to Adelaide for a short 2 week reccie and during my shopping there I was never asked to look inside my bag. When I come to live there I will accept the Australian way and if that's how they do it, so be it.
If you dont like it go home, leave your bag in the car, dont go shopping ? are you mad.
Some might not want their bag looked into maybe they have adult mags or sex toys in there and dont want them seen.
Why do people keep mentioning its easier to show in the bag rather than stand and argue the point.
As I said before, dont even look at them just ignore them and walk out.
