This guy was looking too much TV !!!
A man wearing a body armor, with flame retardant leggings and knee pads under his coat was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport after a Customs and Border Protection officer found a smoke grenade and several weapons in his checked luggage for a flight to BOS.
A smoke grenade can set a fire I guess, so a very good job by the security agents this time.... this dumb*ss could cause a serious accident...
LOL !!! I was thinking you had posted the first scenes of Lethal Weapon 4, with the guy "inside" a body armor and using all sort of heavy weapons against everything around him.... Danny Glover doing like a chicken to distract that nut is one of the best scenes ever made in Hollywood !!!

Quoting PHX787 (Reply 7): The one thing I wanna know is: What the heck was he doing with all that stuff?
Yeah, the most benign interpretation I can think of is that he has... uh... kinky interests... but that doesn't explain the police batons and body armor. Other than that, spree killer who didn't think he could get a gun past security, or perhaps couldn't buy one in the previous countries he was visiting? Though I don't know what he'd need with cooking tongs for either purpose.
I hate the comments on that video, it's clearly ridiculous visual humor for the most part, the type of thing the rest of that movie does so well, but the two viewers who left a comment seem to think it's some kind of prescient social commentary on what the actual TSA does, which I really have to assume, whatever else goes one with them, does include stopping people who are walking under the metal detector with full-size machine guns.

It doesn't explain the smoke grenade either.

This guy is either mentally ill, or.... no, sorry, that's the only logical explanation for having that kind of stuff. He either believes in the pending zombie apocalypse, wanted to make a scene, or wanted to commit an attack.
I guess the report just listed every single thing they found in there? Though I can't think of any reason to carry an oven mitt on a trans-Pacific flight, really. Maybe he was worried his smoke grenade would cook off in his hand and wanted some heat protection?

Anyone know what airline he crossed the Pacific on? Specifically what his exact itinerray was? Each article I read says something a bit different. I'm curious because the name of the airline is left out in each and every article...
