Well, Obviously Because He Wasn’t A White Grandmother…

…dying of leukemia and wearing Depends

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – CBS News has confirmed that authorities are looking into a shocking security breach that took place at John F. Kennedy International Airport last week.

Investigators say Olajide Oluwaseun Noibi, a Nigerian, boarded Virgin America Flight 415 to Los Angeles without a valid passport or identification, using an expired boarding pass for a flight the day before that belonged to someone else.

and it gets even better

Officials say Noibi got through security and was able to board the plane. No one noticed until the flight was airborne when a flight attendant realized Noibi was sitting in a seat that was supposed to be vacant.

He showed the attendant the expired boarding pass that was in someone else’s name and then showed him a University of Michigan identification card with his picture on it.

…Noibi was allowed to get off the plane when it landed in Los Angeles.

Days later, investigators say he went back to LAX and tried to board a Delta flight to Atlanta.

This time, he was searched and airport officials found 10 expired boarding passes in his bag , none of them in his name.

Remind me again why we’re giving TSA so much power?

    I’m beginning to suspect that the TSA may not be the best investment of our time and money.

    Not for nothing – it’s a hell of a lot easier to use someone else’s boarding pass than someone else’s diaper.

    That’s just like the man, trying to keep the little guy down by not letting him use creative ticketing.

    I know this guy personally, he asked me to take care of a few million dollars for him one time.

    Will the Space Alien that took over Skyler’s body please give him back?

    Skyler, that was damned funny! Where’d this humor gene come from? :)
