I really doubt if many people will like hearing this kind of news, in view of the additional things "regular folks" have to do in line. Bad enough what you have do to, but just the waiting is bad enough. Wouldn't you like to know what else they were exempt from doing, while your grandmother is searched becasue of a metal clip on her bra. No pat downs for supermodels I guess, leave your shoes on you are OK. They have a baby, but what about all the other babies? What about pregnant women and handicapped people stripping down half their cloths, it they have an ounce of metal. Shoes, belts, suspenders, all off, if your famous with $1000 shoes--you're OK, take your seat and we will bring you a cocktail while you have to wait. 🙄

MONTREAL – Canadian police said Friday that it was wrong for one of their officers to whisk Halle Berry, her model boyfriend and baby through airport security at Montreal's Trudeau airport.
A constable at the airport decided to let the couple pass a long line after a spur-of-the-moment request on Monday by Gabriel Aubry, a Quebec model who is Berry's boyfriend and father of her 22-month-old daughter, Nahla.
"The (boyfriend) of Ms. Berry asked if they could go faster through the line because they were late and they had the baby," said Insp. Jimmy Cacchione, who heads the 36-member unit that patrols the Montreal airport.
"The officer took the personal initiative to allow them to go through the line faster, but that's not something the Montreal police supports."
An embarrassed Montreal police force issued a directive to its officers Friday, urging them to avoid a repeat of the episode.
The officer involved will not be reprimanded and the police airport unit will institute stricter rules for the future, Cacchione added.
Berry's agent Toni Howard was not immediately available for comment.
Journalist Marieve Paradis said she spotted the actress and her family bypassing a lengthy security lineup while other passengers waited for hours to get to U.S. Customs.
"It shocked me that we were waiting in line, and there were other babies and other children," Paradis said from Los Angeles, where she lives.
"Monday was chaotic at the airport, people were anxious and people were nervous and everyone was scared to miss their flights."
Paradis, who spotted Berry again seated in the front row of the same Los Angeles-bound flight she was on, questioned in her blog Friday why a police escort would have been necessary for the power couple, who own a home north of Montreal.
"I'm not sure people from Montreal are very happy to learn that their money from their taxes is used for escorting celebrities."
Paradis said she barely made the morning flight herself after arriving three and a half hours ahead of departure as a result of heightened security checks at airports across the globe since a foiled terror attack on Christmas Day.

The officer that whisked Barry through airport security was probably like most guys... had some crazy notion in his head that he might get laid if he did her this favor. A lot of guys are like that.

too funny...hardly think he would think to get lucky at an airport with her drop dead gorgeous husband there,and baby in tow...maybe a thankyou f**k down the road?? sorry but you have to admit thats a little out there.
This to me is just another example that the rules never apply to everyone in life. Favoritism, special privelages,exemption from law for those certain layers of society has always seemed so unfair to me, but I also think that often theres too much power given to the "enforcers" of these rules, and they can twist that to their advantage.
She really should be renting her own plane, or waiting in line like everyone else. What irks me most as these people can actually walk on by all these people and not feel guilty??? Who they hell do they think they are? If you're all that ,get your own plane....or wait.
