Man Arrested at Airport for Baggage with Legal But "Suspicious" Items.

And of course the Zionist-owned media reports it completely uncritically. If I am wrong about this, someone let me know. What in this checked-in baggage is illegal? (He even declared the knife, still not necessary as far as I know. Only firearms.)

Weird and quirky now means terrorist, and the judgment call is made by some TSA goon with a fifth grade education. Leg shackles? Duct tape? Sounds like he was getting ready for a pretty good time in Vegas. Note the alarming "Luggage Full of Weapons" headline, for the sheep. But last I heard free men are allowed to have weapons.

This is a lead in to some generalized "suspicion" law which could pull you off the street because a cop says you looked at him the wrong way. What are the charges?

Man Wearing Body Armor Busted With Luggage Full of Weapons at LAX

A Boston-bound man wearing body armor, flame retardant leggings and knee pads under his trench coat arrested at Los Angeles International Airport after a Customs and Border Protection officer found a smoke grenade and several weapons in his checked luggage is facing a federal charge for transporting hazardous material on an airplane.

According to an affidavit filed in federal court, Yongda Huang Harris, 28, a naturalized U.S. citizen of Chinese descent, was flying from Kansai, Japan, via Inchon, Korea, to LAX on Friday.

He was pulled aside in customs for a secondary baggage inspection when an officer noticed Harris was wearing a bullet-proof vest. The officer asked Harris if he had anything he would like to declare in his checked luggage.

Harris told the officer he had a knife, but when his bag was searched, the officer found a troubling array of suspicious items.

In addition to the smoke grenade, officers found three leather-coated black-jack billy clubs, a collapsible baton, a full-face respirator, several knives and a hatchet.

Perhaps even more disturbing, officers also found body bags, a tyvex biohazard suit, various masks, duct tape, hand cuffs, leg irons, flex cuffs, oven mitts and cooking tongs.... more... http://gma.yahoo.com/man-wearing-body-armor-busted-luggage-f...

Wondering

I wonder if this sticker on my check in will be considered a "legal but suspicious" item ?

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

A felony in Calif

Different standards in different places.

This story is a little bizarre so what I have to say is not directly related. Its just a comment.

I was traveling in Europe with a connecting flight from Amsterdam to Detroit last week when I went through carry-on checking.

The officer approached me in Amsterdam after running my carry-on through the xray and said "Do you have a cork screw in there?" Aware that I generally DO travel with a bartender's cork screw (the kind that has a folding knife blade on it as well) but that I pack it in my checked luggage, I said I didn't. Besides, I also carry a small luggage scale in my carry-on that has a coiled spring inside and is often mistaken in xrays for a cork-screw. The screener then went through my carry-on case and I was embarrassed to discover I was wrong. I had accidently packed the cork-screw there.

Making a mental note of the fact that I would have to replace that item when I got home, I resigned myself to the idea that it was going to be confiscated. But two of the officials conferred and said "The blade isn't more than two inches long. You can keep it."

Wow.

In the US on a flight TO Amsterdam, a Trim Fingernail clipper is considered to be a deadly weapon and is routinely confiscated. But in Amsterdam for a flight to Detroit, a two inch blade - longer than that found on a typical box cutter, is okay.

Amazing.

The main reason they got him

The main reason they got him is the smoke grenade.

If I ever need to bring gear like this somewhere(or anything else important or expensive), I would be shipping it rather than going through the airlines. Shipping companies have a much better record than airlines do at getting things where they need to go.

Ya know, the first airline to garuntee things like shipping companies do would probably put everyone else out of business

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

A smoke grenade in check-on is not illegal

It's clear by the statement of the officials that they were looking at the entire assortment, not just the smoke grenade, which they simply could have confiscated. Neither is it illegal to wear body armor, yet. Unless it is now illegal to defend yourself, which is where it looks like they are going with this. Gas masks and bio-hazard suits are defensive items. Let's see how they word this new law.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Actually I think smoke

Actually I think smoke grenades are classed as an explosive device and thats the problem.
I am not an expert though.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

I think you are correct

Smoke grenades are classified as an explosive device which is banned on planes.

That's what I was thinking. Has false flag written all over it

right down to outlandish gear, bio-hazard suit (legal), oven mitts? (legal?)

Maybe he was intentionally slipped through...

...and customs foiled the plan.

I think that either he was supposed to draw attention and get caught, or he and his stuff were slipped through intentionally, like the guy a few years ago around Christmas time.

If I understood correctly, it was customs who pulled him aside for the secondary check, not TSA who would've done the initial check somehow managing not to notice any of this.

While I realize TSA may be busy groping pregnant women and interrogating families because their infant's name appears on a watchlist, it seems odd that this guy with his body armor, smoke grenade, hatchet, knives, etc., got through the first time without TSA so much as raising an eyebrow.

Johnson-bots voting this down. They like Ron Paul's voters only

as long as they don't tell too much truth. This is what separates the Johnson-bot panderers and pretenders to the liberty message from the true patriots.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Nope

I voted it down because you insisted in tying your ZOG or anti-ZOG, as the case may be, personal beliefs into an otherwise alarming and important story.

In other words, you did exactly what you accuse the media of doing, inserting your personal opinion and spin into an attempt to relay data and inform.

Who said anything about ZOG?

I said Zionist controlled media. Do you dispute that the owners of the American media are shameless Israel-Firsters? When the murder of civilians aboard a humanitarian flotilla to Gaza is spun by the media into the civilians being at fault?

I'm not surprised it's you, the head Johnson hijacker urging people to shunt their votes to Johnson, where they can be harmlessly ignored, who objects. A tidal wave of Ron Paul write-ins would not be good for interventionist foreign policy, including for Israel.

Release the Sandy Hook video.
