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.
$1B spent on machines to digitally strip search you, in the process making children cry, causing sex abuse survivors to have flashbacks, humiliating the disabled, and trashing our constitution… all for nothing with the back door left wide open.
“If you see something, blog something.” 😉
When does the stupidity end? Or in other words: When will the TSA end?
Awesome catch. Did you report this?
Yep… I tweeted the TSA. 😉
TSA is an arbitrary and corrupt organization and will only use this as an excuse to increase their criminal acts against the public.
The Fedgov and the FAA have used the deceptions of 9/11 to allow the Airlines to betray and molest their customers.
BOYCOTT COMMERCIAL AIR TRAVEL.
I have for a few years now and agree with you 100%
oh my god and everybody was just as safe as if a burger flipping reject was sitting in that seat listening to an I pod they just stole from a passenger! the tsa is a joke and needs to go and become a footnote in history ( a sad footnote)
when will we get an update regarding the hearing you attended in DC?
This area (Central Terminal Building lower B Councourse Stairs) is actually covered by private airport security. Based on when this photo was taken there doesn’t have to be a person there as the secure area is closed by a gate further up the concourse.
Based on the time you took the photo, 23:50 on June 4th my previous post is exactly right. The checkpoint is closed, secured and the private security is actually upstairs at the rolldown gate while arriving flights come in. There is no place to go if you come through this way but out the exit upstairs.The concourse is swept by the Police after the last flight and before the first flight in the morning.
If you were to walk to the left in that photograph, you would have access to the entire concourse. There is no gate closing off that area. One could easily bring weapons or explosives in and leave them for the next day, and no “police sweep” is going to catch them.
If you walk left of the photo you will be walking up the stairs which brings you to the exit upstairs. There is a gate or a guard down the ramp from the stairs and there is no access to the entire concourse.
Anxiously waiting for an update on the Congressional Briefing. Was anyone allowed to record it? It is beyond me why anyone still believes this nonsense is keeping them safe.
Reblogged this on .
He was probably busy someplace else groping children or looking at his favorite naked body-scanner pics.
Respectfully, there was no one there to stop me that day. Next time, I will take video as I pass.
Interesting spot at ORD the other day, Police Officer with Israeli flag patch on right shoulder and Chicago Police patch on the left shoulder in the B TSA check point.
Good lord, that’s absolutely priceless. Everyone knows that ‘terrorists’ will just respect the one way sign and not go in there right? 😉 The only terrorists we have are the idiots in office.
