The Miami shooting.....
Mark on up for the Federal Air Marshals, they did good yesterday.
Shooting that guy yesterday was the right thing for them to do.
If I was on that plane the only thing that would be going through my mind if some guy was running down the aisle yelling "I HAVE A BOMB!!" would be 'Damn I wish I had MY gun.'
And I don't understand all the naysayers out today second guessing the actions of the FAMs.
There are certain universal things that you should NEVER do, because doing so will get you killed.
Running blindfolded across 16 lanes of traffic in downtown Atlanta during rush hour;
Punching a sleeping bear in the snout and then running around it while poking it with a stick;
Go skinny dipping in the Arctic Ocean;
Be a passenger in a car when Ted Kennedy is the driver;
Yelling "I HAVE A BOMB!" while in the airport or on a plane.
Along with showing that having armed Federal Air Marshals on planes is a good thing this story also pointed out what complete incompetent F'N idiots there are in the TSA.
It seems that six days ago a 50-year old Egyptian man was stopped at NY's JFK because "he had a suspicious pair of shoes that tested positive five times for the explosive substance TATP on the interior of his shoes between the heel and sole." and his shoes that were "remarkably similar to those used by shoe bomber Richard Reid."
So what do the geniuses in the TSA do?
Well, they hold him overnight and then release him.
And it's only AFTER they let him go do they notify the FBI!!
