Good Grief: Airport Checkpoint Shut Down Over Un-screened Baby

You can’t fully blame this one on the TSA, but, you can blame the over-blown security measures that TSA has put in place

(NJ.com) The failure to properly screen a baby for weapons or explosives led to flight delays and hours of inconvenience for passengers at Newark Liberty International Airport today.

The security breach, which sparked the evacuation of a section of Terminal C, also exposed tensions between the Transportation Security Administration and the Port Authority Police Department, which makes final determinations about shutdowns and passenger re-screening.

A TSA official said police were told the security slipup carried a “low risk factor” given the circumstances of the incident, in which the child was handed from one parent to another during a metal detector walkthrough. Both parents were properly screened before leaving for their gate.

A short time later, TSA personnel realized the baby had not been checked and began searching for the family.

“Port Authority police unilaterally made the decision to evacuate the terminal, sweep the terminal for explosives and re-screen all of the passengers, inconveniencing hundreds of passengers and delaying numerous flights,” said the official, who was not authorized to discuss the issue by name because of its delicacy.

It’s. A. Baby. Airport security is completely out of control.
