#TSAGoodCatch – A shaving cream can with a false bottom was discovered in a carry-on bag at Las Vegas (LAS). When the false bottom was removed, officers discovered a small plastic bag with marijuana, a metal pipe, a spoon, a lighter and a hair clip.
- This is what the TSA – an agency that has never caught a terrorist – is bragging about finding, calling it a “good catch” and putting it up on their instagram account.
- The TSA wanted to stop looking for pocket knives, saying there are only so many things they can focus on and paying attention to things that aren’t terrorism risks makes us less safe, distracts them from looking for real threats. The TSA shouldn’t be bragging about looking for and finding things that aren’t terrorism risks.
- Am I the only one who thinks this shaving cream can is really awesome? Ok, it wasn’t awesome enough. But I still kind of want one.
There aren’t actually a lot of people out there trying to blow up airplanes and the only useful changes in aviation security post-9/11 have been reinforced cockpit doors and a new equilibrium where passengers will fight back against any hijacking.. Meanwhile TSA stands for (T)aking (S)tinkweed (A)way.
