Oh dear. Terrorism is serious business even in this day and age when we're all under suspicion and have to be careful what we say, even in jest (not like we'd jest about terrrrrrrrism, it isn't funny). You'd think TSA employees especially would know the protocol but apparently some assclown TSA screener in LA has been arrested for making moronic threats against LAX. Come on, man, just come on. Not cool.
From the LA Times:
Members of a federal task force late Tuesday arrested a former TSA screener who they accused of making threats against Los Angeles International Airport, including "unspecified threats" related to the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.Let's stop and think about this for a minute. This toolbag has been screening airline passengers at LAX for 7 years! And now he's in custody for making "unspecified threats" leading up to the anniversary of 9/11?
Nna Alpha Onuoha, 29, was taken into custody in Riverside before midnight by members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force with assistance from Riverside police officers, according to FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller.
Pending additional investigation, Onuoha will be held on suspicion of making threats, she said.
The arrest came after Onuoha allegedly made threats against LAX terminals earlier in the day following his resignation from his post as a screener with the Transporation Security Administration. Onuoha held the position since 2006 but had been suspended recently, Eimiller said.
WOW, I feel safer already knowing a nut like this has been keeping LAX safe from unsavory passengers for so long, don't you?
Oh, it's cool though because he is an ex-TSA dipshit, not current. Whew.
