[url]http://www.msnbc.com/news/729756.asp?pne=msn&cp1=1[/url] April 1, Chicago Hundreds of passengers at O’Hare International Airport had to be re-screened after security guards noticed that a metal detector had been unplugged March 31, Albuquerque A malfunctioning metal detector failed to catch a man carrying a hunting knife, and officials said they had no idea how long the machine had not been working. Some 800 to 1,200 passengers had to be re-screened. March 31, New Orleans Officials in Louisiana said a man carried eight knives and two pairs of scissors past a checkpoint at the New Orleans airport, then was allowed to board a plane before he was taken into custody. ---- this just inspires great confidence in out airport security groups does'nt it? a unplugged metal detector? bunch of f'ing einsteins.

there are about 6 more incidents of defective/unpluged metal detectors. hehe.. just great.. wouldnt it make more sense to have them hardwired to power coming up from under them?? --edit-- Nov. 3, Chicago Two knives were confiscated from Subash Gurung at O'Hare International. However, Gurung was allowed to continue to the gate area with a plastic bag containing seven more knives, a stun gun and a container marked "tear gas-pepper gas." Those items were discovered by United Airlines workers who searched his luggage at the gate. [shock]
