So, if you hang light up bags in trees in New York
you will go to jail as a potential
terrorist but, if someone shoots a flare at a landing aircraft at the Philly airport, its no big deal and hardly worth investigating.
Flare gun incident spooks Philly airport
Authorities say someone may have shot a flare into the sky near Philadelphia International Airport as a plane was landing.
US Airways spokesman Todd Lehmacher (LEE'-mock-er) says Flight 4321 from Elmira, N.Y., landed safely on Tuesday afternoon.
Lehmacher says crew members reported seeing a possible flare as the plane came in around 1:45 p.m.
A law enforcement official tells CBS News that they are not considering this a terrorist act. Their assumption is that the
flare was fired from a road along the airport.
Other reports say the pilot thinks his plane was targeted by the flare shooter and that the airport was shut down for about a half hour due to the
incident but, it seems law enforcement isn't taking this event very seriously.
Flare Scare at Philly International Airport
Runway closed after pilot says he saw a flare shot as his plane landed Tuesday afternoon
If the person responsible for the alleged flare is caught they could be charged with risking a catastrophe, police said. The FBI is currently
investigating. An FBI spokesman told NBC10 the incident is a non-event and they don't expect anything more to come of it.
Are you freakin kidding me?
They are looking to increase airline fees to pay for the TSA to molest us before getting on a plane but, when someone actually shoots something at an
airplane, they write it off as a non-event!
I guess they can't use something that happened outside the airport terminal as an excuse to further erode our rights and bring on even more invasive
searches at the airports. It just doesn't fit their narritave.
This is the same access road a
drunk driver used
to crash the gates
and drive onto a runway a few months back. You would think they would have at least increased patrols on that road since then
but, nobody really seems interested protecting this airport from outside threats.
Makes you wonder if they aren't leaving the gates open for an upcoming false flag attack in this area.
