Re: Would you trust TSA (and other counterparts) while you're asleep?
I wouldn't trust the TSA any time, they have somehow managed to ensure every suitcase can be opened without needing to break it by enforcing special keys!
You cannot buy a decent hard case without a TSA lock, so if your travelling to anywhere that isn't the USA, expect your bag to be rummaged through and anything even partially valuable stolen.
I have hard cases over 10 years old, they are very tough, I've seen evidence that someone tried to get in, but never has anyone opened them... The few times security wanted to look inside, they asked me to come open them...
