Olajide Oluwaseun Noibi, 24, a Nigerian-born man has bypassed TSA security and airline boarding pass checks to board and fly for free on several flights. He was found with several old boarding passes and identification documents none of which were in his name.
In this day of intrusive TSA privacy violations, ramped up security measures and public molestations of crying 8 year olds Olajibe was able to walk through and board flights for free. Yet recently a 95-year-old woman suffering from the effects of cancer had her adult diaper inspected before she was allowed to get past the security check point much less get to the boarding area.
Here’s what this panic button incident means for the rest of
us. “Officials” and “experts” are on the news talking about how procedures need to be reviewed and steps need to be taken to avoid this happening again. Sounds good but ultimately will mean more scrutiny, over zealous tactics, rules and control.
The skies maybe friendly but getting there sure isn’t.
