TSA captures 5 year old terrorist

It’s a case of a mistaken identity for a 5-year-old boy from Normandy Park. He had trouble boarding a plane because someone with the same name is wanted by the federal government. Mimi Jung reports from Sea-Tac Airport.

About Brett

I live in Jacksonville, Florida USA where I ride my bike and run a small PC and network repair biz. I consider my self extremely lucky to earn a living doing what I love. I have been earning my living in this way for several years. Alas, my personality doesn’t allow me to rest on the successes of my past. Entrepreneurs are cursed that way. I started SpyandSeek while still in college but never finished it. (slight ADD another curse.) After a two years in the PC trade I decided it was time to finish what I started and so SpyandSeek was born. SpyandSeek has analyzed thousands of HijackThis logs from around the world since it’s launch in late 2005. It still amazes me how a tiny site like mine can touch so many far off places.

  1. With the best of intentions, in the best of circumstances, government attempts to protect its citizens through the rules and laws it legislates. Our freedom is in danger from both those enemies who believe their duty is to harm us and from unthinking enforcement of our rules and laws. Those whose duty it is to enforce rules and laws of the land are, at times, performing their duty in the absence of “common sense”. In war a soldier’s duty is to follow orders, and to challenge those orders when those orders go against moral fiber of his or her country. The TSA and other government agencies charged with safeguarding our country must carry out their duties balanced against “common sense” that is as much a part of the fabric of our country as the rules and laws of the land. What happened to this 5 year old is an example of how we are losing our freedom by the blind enforcement, to the letter, of the rules the government has put in place to protect us.
