NY Daily News Security Results...Wow.

Thu Sep 05, 2002 10:07 am

This is terrible, once again proving that people who dont travel often (security agents) could really care less about the safety of others.

most of the poeple who work these check points cant even speak english. they need to limit the amount of foreigners that they hire.

when security goes federal hopefuly they will get some smart poeple to work these machines.

Sort of related subject. Here in the completely gone off the deep end State of CA we are going to issue Driver's licenses to illegal Immigrants. That is the primary piece of ID we all use to get through airport security and onto aircraft. I think our government is living in some sort of a bubble, completely sealed off to what's going on in the world!

Just as a semi-alarming sidebar to this, at a security checkpoint at DFW (the checkpoint in between UA/US/YX), there is a man working there (on an X-Ray machine) who appears to either be mentally retarded or have a mild case of Down Syndrome. I'm all for jobs for the mentally handicapped but this is a bit extreme.

The United spokesman makes a good point. I mean, how can they get away with it, just because they are news media? Couldn't they be arrested just like every one else (and now there's evidence which shows clearly they violated federal regulations).
Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

The United spokesman completely missed the point. The "you know, what you did was illegal" response has seemed to be typical from the industry. Instead of focusing on the real issue (weapons getting past security) they are focusing on blaming whomever (person, media, etc.) that discovered the problem. They had a chance to nab the reporters, and they missed. Get over it.

Do you think that one of the hijackers said to one of the others, "You know, these knives might be illegal." And the others said, "You're right.... Well lets come up with another plan." Though I do believe the knifes they had were illegal at the time.

The industry needs to stop skirting the issues when these stories come out.
