    Yeah. Whether or not he has a bomb, if you're flying from Columbia and you say "I've got a bomb" or whatever he said... you should expect to be shot. Apparently the suspect died; natural selection strikes again.

    however I am a little concerned from a former "Sky Marshalls" and Investigators point of view.What concerns me is the subject had exited the flight and was in the gangway...he put his hand in a "Carry On" bag from the flight and said he had a bomb...when ordered to remove his hand he refused and was subsequently shot!(within guidelines)
    What concerns me is did the "Air Marshalls" lack confidence in pre boarding examinations of carryon baggage? Or did they just go on auto pilot and respond without thinking clearly?

    Since the New "Air Marshall" program was initiated approximately four years ago they have been plagued with problems...consisting of bad background checks on approximately 50% of candidates in training..
    Also the basic requirement for candidates is a Four Year College degree with a 3.5gpa...No former law enforcement experience required.

    In the seventees the requirement was two years of college and two or more years of law enforcement or military service...This may be some of the problems we are seeing with the New "Air Marshall" program...They pick those with a college degree and a high gpa but absolutely zero real time experience!


    Just one mans opinion! ;)

    You have any sources for the wide range of facts you just dropped that the rest of us could verify on our own?

    Well you can go to the FAA govt employment site and search for openings for "Air Marshal" you will see the requirements clearly...also since you are so good at google research "Problems with background checks for FAA security and "Air Marshal"
