Words cannot describe how incredibly offended I am by this story.
The AP is reporting that two US Airways employees in Philadelphia conspired yesterday to smuggle a gun through airport security — and damn near got away with it but for a suspicious passenger.
I have to take off my shoes when I’m not in uniform, the TSA wants to steal my shampoo and toothpaste when I’m not in uniform, my house keys get the third degree whether I’m in uniform or not (even from TSA “officers” who see me every week), and this jackass gets to waltz through a badged entrance into the security-sterile area of the airport and hand a gun to his roommate?
Can we just admit that the TSA isn’t accomplishing anything, and put that ridiculous agency to bed already? The GM and Chrysler bailouts/takeovers are NOTHING in comparison to the money the government is wasting on the TSA every year.
