No Screening Required at LGA!

    Just flew to LGA today, and found this gem as I was leaving the airport:


    To any frequent flyer, this is a familiar scene: the "one way" hallway between the secure area and the baggage claim. What is conspicuously missing, however, is the person at the desk on the left side to ensure that this stays a "one way" hallway.

    There are no auto-sensors or anything at LGA to ensure that no one can pass. I'm not even sure there are cameras here. Anyone walking this way would have had all-access to the terminal with no screening at all.

    The first question that comes to my mind is: Is the TSA taking a break or were they too busy molesting people or stealing iPhones to watch the hallway?

    That's outstanding Jon. My bet is all of the TSA employees were busy assaulting citizens at the checkpoint and doing gate checks of the drinks people purchased in the secure area of the terminal. This is a perfect example of incompetent bureaucracy.

    Is that your unattended bag? If not, can you say terminal dump?

    Did anyone go through this while it was abandoned? I would have tried it of the coast was a clear as looks in the photo. Could have claimed it was an innocent mistake, thought it led to another checkpoint.

    Unfortunately you guys are missing the new Cosmic Top Secret Atomal (yes, that's a security classification, look it up!) level 21: The invisible Smurfchen wearing a Klingon cloaking device.
