    So Sen. Lautenberg in New Jersey is screaming that the guy committed a "terrible, terrible offense, and he has to pay a price," and is asking for the guy to turn himself in. Of course, that call is going to ensure that the culprit never voluntarily shows his face and Lautenberg should be verbally castrated for putting it that way if he really wanted the guy to surrender, but irregardless, assuming this guy wasn't trying to commit a terroristic act, do we really want to prosecute this guy?


    ETA: I erroneously assumed everyone was aware of this story and omitted a link. Here's the story...

    The only crime that the man committed was making airport security look bad. Calling for his prosecution is ridiculous, and shutting down the airport for something like 6 hours is a severe overreaction.

    I don't know the full story on this as you give no link. However, if someone is able to slip through airport security there is only one course of action where prosecution is concerned. Those responsible for airport security are the ones who should be prosecuted. It is their inability or incompetence at preventing such security lapses that is in question. It is their neglect that places passengers at risk. At the very least, they should be fired...with enthusiasm!

    I agree with Colin, government should prosecute airport authorities and not the person who slipped away.
    They can fine the person but prosecution is way to harsh.

    I'd consider the security that was asleep at the wheel is more of a concern than the apparent love sick individual who slipped through while they were sleeping. If anything the guy exposed, again, how inept much of airport security is.

    YOur right. He did expose lax security via the guard who stepped away to take a call.

    On the other side of that he knew he wasn't supposed to go there, the guard had already stopped him once. What does he do?? The minute the guard is gone he goes on through. He shut down the airport and caused a vast amount of inconvenience and in some cases panic to those waiting for flights.

    The guy was a total inconsiderate asshole. He didn't care that he would cause a panic in the airport. Cause delays in all flights. All so he could say goodbye to his girl???? Jeeze, call the lady.

    The guard was paid to protect the terminal. He left his assigned post.
    The guy walked through an unprotected gate to kiss his girlfriend good bye. If anything give the guy a medal and a parade for demonstrating how weak the security was
