Terrible TSA Agent Unplugs Metal Detectors, Causes Severe Flight Delays

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & True

Pete Wentz TSA Airport

This is just embarrassing for all parties involved!

Several flights and hundreds of passengers were delayed for hours over the weekend when TSA Officer Alija Abdul Majed failed to notice one of his metal detectors was unplugged!!

Many passengers at JFK Airport who already passed through the checkpoint were forced to deplane, turn around, and re-enter security lines all over again!

That sounds annoying, sure — but agents had to ensure nobody possessed prohibited metal items like knives, guns, or fingernail clippers.

One law enforcement agent said of the snafu:

"The truth is, this is the failure of the most basic level of diligence… How can you expect the public to feel confident of the mission of the TSA if they don't even know if the lights are turned on?"

We like standing in line in socks as much as the next guy, but this is just ridiculous!!
