DEN: Security Central, Except During Superbowl

Thu Feb 07, 2002 1:42 pm

Amazing...

DENVER –– For two months, a TV station's hidden camera caught police officers spending hours behind the doors of a break room at the Denver airport when they should have been on patrol.

KCNC captured footage of one officer entering the windowless room during an NFL playoff game and exiting hours later. And one officer was clocked spending four hours of an eight-hour shift in the break room.

Just another reason why airport security forces -- from the security checkpoints to the patrols -- should be militarized and federally controlled. It might not be better, but at least you'd have people in there who might take things a little more seriously...
