Staten Island Live: Security supervisor used dead man's ID while working at Newark Airport
So let me see if I can get this straight: matching ID to the name on a boarding pass is pointless?
Wonder if the guy had SIDA card? You know those background checks keep these people out of the screening lines.
Yep. You betcha! Ya know, it's kind of hard for dead guys to commit crimes.
Bimbo. Bimbo. name seems familiar... oh yeah, I was thinking of Francine, TSA's googling lawyer.
Hey, what's the big deal? They let dead people vote in Chicago...
And most of them vote more than once ---- usually for a straight ticket.
The police issue the SIDA badges so if that guy had one, then he fooled the cops as well.
Who does the background check?
Also, TSA policies seems to exempt airport workers from 100% screening. Seems they are subject to random screening which appears to be as random as three dollar bills.
So is this another example of consistent inconsistency with how things are done at airports? Maybe they should've gotten fingerprints, like what I had to do for my AOA credential.
Investigation done by a local news station in Seattle awhile back showed that employees who had access to airplanes had never been randomly screened. Video was shown with employees carrying lunch boxes, backpacks, tote bags, hand bags etc. and when interviewed said they had never themselves been screened nor their possessions although supervisors interviewed claimed they were.
I've spoken often of watching airport/airline workers at DFW enter through employee doors, carrying all manner of things, grocery bags filled with 2 liter bottles of soda, roll-aboard suitcases, backpacks and all kinds of stuff, none of which is screened before entering the secure area or making its way out to the airplanes. These people have all the access they need to place a weapon aboard an airplane and TSA is doing squat, nada, zip to secure the airport other than abusing passengers and feeling up our genitals.
Another case, LAS, I observe a TSA employee heading to the tram from the D terminal to main terminal (going home) with a roll aboard. Why does a TSA employee need a suitcase to screen people? To hide the items they stole that day? Perhaps to bring drugs past the checkpoints and hand over to a mule?
If we truly want a sterile area at airports we have to get rid of TSA because TSA is the biggest offender of not doing any real security. All a gift from the incompetent TSA Administrator John S. Pistole.
He/She brought a really, REALLY big cupcake for lunch.
Who says they're hiding anything? The roll-aboard may have been "newly-acquired" on that very shift.
TSA thieves and thugs are nothing if not brazen.
It appears he didn't just take a dead man's name. This was an actual case of identity theft while the victim was still alive:
CBS News: Airport worker allegedly had man's ID before death
The Record: Still not secure
I do like his real name: Bimbo Olumuyiwa Oyewole -- just a regular old bimbo!
