    This is the type of person that the BDOs should be finding before they get through the checkpoint with their knives.

    The SPOTniks run the same statistics as pure random chance, so what'd be the point?

    If he actually did use the knife to cut another passenger, I'd put my money on not being arrested, but steam-cleaned out of the carpeting after landing.

    This guy should have been sending all sorts of signals that he was/is unstable. Surely, you have come across individuals whom you immediately knew should be avoided.

    Yes. For example, I avoid the thugs at the airport wearing blue shirts.

    The SPOTniks were likely too busy chatting up a "cutie" to be looking for actual threats.
