Continental Airlines / theft from gate checked baggage

1 Newark AirportNewark, NJ, United States

I had a carry on luggage and as I went through the gate and before boarding the plane, I was railroaded by a Continental worker and he demanded that I check my bag. Mind you, my bag was of legal size. I originally had refused to give him my bag but he threathened me and I gave in fearing that I be arrested. Just the day before I had read about several thefts occurring at Continental terminals in Newark and I was afraid the same was going to happen. Sure enough I arrive at Santo Domingo and my 2 cameras and lenses were gone. I reported the incident right there at the airport. To date I have not heard from Continental and I'm afraid that I lost my possessions forever.
Once you get in at the airport a person looses all his rights and you become a slave to whoever wears an airline/airport identity badge. Furthermore these companies take no responsibility for their employee actions.
