That's exactly my problem with search procedures today. TSA uses the same general argument. Police in a traffic stop use the same argument. You have the right to refuse a search but your refusal is reasonable suspicion for a non-consensual search. "I can't look in your car? We'll just call for the sniffer dog then..."
You're right, same thing will happen here.
They'll ask permission and do the search if you consent and consider your refusal to be suspicion for a non-consensual search.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
