WOW! You just wonder what sick minds are really out there! A loaded gun inside a teddy bear, what is the kid did manage to get it to fire. Or what if someone had hoped it got through security and was going to be on that plane?

"Federal screeners have made two other catches recently. In Hartford, Connecticut, screeners stopped a man who had slipped a knife down the back of a six-year-old child's shirt to try to slip it past security, Johnson said.

Also at that airport, screeners stopped a 67-year-old man who had hollowed out his prosthetic leg to conceal a nine-inch knife in a scabbard."


The first one is just pure disturbing but the second one is kinda funny. People seem to be going to great lengths to get weapons onboard our aircraft.

Is the six year old kid in Guantanamo Bay yet?  Big thumbs up
