|Quoting Diesel33 (Thread starter):|
Were there any passengers that "escaped" from the watchful eye of the airline?
Yes, we were especially concerned about the guy with the new tennis shoes on bolting when he got out the door. The air carrier contracted out the escorting of these individuals. Often the escorting person was two days younger than Mosses and could not catch that young guy.

I am just ass-u-ming that, unless you are a citizen of a VISA waiver country, that you must have a VISA to transit the U.S.A. I did not read all the info, but that is what I got out of it.
True. They can transit the US with a "C1" visa or even that B1/2.

This is what my friend told my flying from paris to Tahiti via LAX. On disembark in LAX, he had to go through immigration, got stamped as entering the country and a few metres later another immigration where he is stamped leaving the country
Curious to know the citizenship of your friend. Possible he was an NSEER registrant.

In some airports there are INS or Homeland Security Officers with a Machine to read passports in front of the Gates. They swipe passports and collect the I94's and give you a receipt
These individuals are not affiliated with DHS or the former INS. They are contracted out by TSA
