    Default activity at airport

    I was traveling through BWI today and saw someone get pulled. An man dressed in a white robe, with a large black beard decided to walk up the side of the security line bypassing the boarding pass check, and was quickly trying to get through the metal detector and then was angered when he was pulled asside.

    Cool along the same lines...

    Women arrested after police standoff
    Arlington: 2 were investigated after earlier airport incidents

    12:00 AM CDT on Tuesday, July 17, 2007
    By STEVE THOMPSON / The Dallas Morning News
    stevethompson@dallasnews.com

    It started with a routine domestic disturbance, except that the pair involved has recently been under investigation by federal terrorism officials.

    Before the day ended, Arlington police had negotiated a six-hour standoff, their robot had been shot at with a paintball gun, and they had called in a bomb squad over four potentially explosive devices.

    Kimberly Al-Homsi called 911 about 12:40 a.m. Monday. She said her friend, Aisha Hamad, had threatened her with a knife. The two are noteworthy because a few months ago, they were seen at Dallas Love Field, both dressed in camouflage pants under traditional Muslim robes, conducting what appeared to be surveillance, officials said.

    Police say that Monday morning, when an officer came to the door, Ms. Hamad threatened to shoot him. She told him the only way she would leave was in a body bag.

    So began the standoff, during which she fired a paintball gun at a tactical robot and missed, police say, and at the end of which ! a negotiator persuaded her to come out peacefully. Once outside, Ms. Hamad, 50, fought with them while they tried to handcuff her, police say, so they used a Taser on her.

    Police took Ms. Hamad to a hospital, where she was to undergo a mental evaluation. She is likely to face assault charges, Arlington police spokeswoman Christy Gilfour said.

    Meanwhile, police searched the home on Wembley Road and found four explosive devices, one of which was sitting on a bedroom table.

    Citing an ongoing investigation, Arlington Assistant Fire Marshal Stephen Lea would not say what the devices were.

    "We do not know whether they would function as [explosive] devices until we have time to study them and look at them and test the materials," Mr. Lea said. "I can tell you this; there wasn't anything in there that would have blown her house to pieces."

    Ms. Hamad's friend and alleged victim, Ms. Al-Homsi, was jailed on a charge of possessing a prohibited weapon. She was being held, wi! th bail set at $3,000.

    The terrorism angle stems from Feb. ! 25, when the two women were spotted at Love Field acting in a way authorities found suspicious. Surveillance video showed one of them walking back and forth, apparently pacing off distances.

    When confronted, the women told officials they were looking for the Frontiers of Flight museum.

    Two days later, the pair was spotted at the airport again. This time Ms. Al-Homsi, 42, was sitting on the hood of a car looking through binoculars at airplanes. Dallas officers stopped the car nearby, but the women refused to let police search it, authorities say.

    The women also came under scrutiny after they were reported driving near the runways at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on July 4.

    Dallas police and federal terrorism officials have acknowledged investigating the pair, but police officials have said they had no direct evidence the women have ties to terrorism. The women have accused authorities of violating their rights and of religious and racial profiling.

    In 2005, Ms. A! l-Homsi was accused of waving a fake grenade at a motorist on Central Expressway during a spasm of road rage. Officials charged her with a bomb hoax, and she was placed on probation. She is said to have long-range assault rifle and explosives training, according to a Dallas police intelligence bulletin issued March 5.

    Yea, a buddy of mine joked we don't even need bombs to win this war. Just a helluva lot of pig blood dropped over a terrorist stronghold, and wait for them to run out.

    Your buddy has a good idea. A lot cheaper than bombs too. But there would be too much back lash from the bleeding hearts over here. "Oh that's just cruel" I can hear them saying it now. I'll be darned. I wasn't aware we were supposed to play nice with our enemies

    Heck yeah! Load up a B-52 full of side pork and pig hocks and drop it all over the desert. It will naturally herd them all into a circle for easy pickens. Can anyone say sniper wars?

    sniper wars Just dunno if it would be right shooting all those unarmed people. Cause you know they wouldn't touch their weapons after that. But then again, considering all they've done, practice makes perfect, including sniping. (is that a word??)

    Well boys and girls, I think we just found a good plan, and a great way to put our excess pig products to good use.

    I'd prefer to just circle the entire Middle East in the stuff. Fence in the entire area so they don't bother anyone else.

    And it's BS like this that made me decide to forget LE as a career choice years ago.

    Catch a black drug dealer sittin in a car full of dope, well, you didn't stop him cause he was stopping every block, having people run up to his car and quickly exchanging something.... it's cause he was black.
    Catch a Middle Easterner wandering around an airport, taking photos and pacing distances, and copious notes...it's not cause he's suspicious, it's cause he's Middle Eastern.

    There's DWB..."Driving While Brown/Black". What about DWD? Driving While Dirtbag????

    Sad thing is, this lady will sue the PD, some bleeding heart jury will find for her poor, oppressed azz, and of course the same argument in the subsequent criminal trial will get her off on the "fruits of the poisonous tree" grounds, cause the police were "harassing" her.
    My opinions might coincide with someone of importance's POV... I wouldn't know, since I never bothered to ask. My policy is: "Don't ask, don't care."
