So the mom, knowing what pricks airport security have been the last decade, lets her son bring replica weapons not in a checked bag?

Hey mom: your fault.

agreed her fault
but
id say she was more likely a "but we are safer type" smacking into reality
and not a "knowing what pricks"

tho that may have changed

Pick up that can.
 
2013-08-01 12:12:14 AM
The mom is pretty hot, but I would never let my child bring that toy onto the plane.  I know it would be confiscated.

If I was that kid, I'd breast feed until I was 17.

The TSA sucks syphilitic donkey balls, but this women is a farking moran.  By now people need to know that if it looks like a weapon, no matter how small or fake, LEAVE IT AT HOME!
 
2013-08-01 12:17:35 AM
First off if she offered to put them in her car they should have allowed it, its not like they are dangerous, have someone escort her while she does it to see that it is done.

secondly, Really is common sense not allowed for an air port security officer, run them through x-ray if nothing is stashed inside allow them as they are toys not replica weapons.

thirdly the mother should have packed them in a checked bag as they aren't the kind of thing a kid should play with in a plane, and that would be true even if 9/11 had not happened.
 
2013-08-01 12:17:55 AM
Meh.  1975.  I, a 5 year old, had the squirt gun my parents packed as a christmas gift fully wrapped.  Opened up by security, and chucked in the garbage.
 
2013-08-01 12:19:47 AM
I cant take my Leatherman. He cant have his plastic sword. Anyway all he was going to do is make everyone else s fight a nightmare. You know he will be hitting the guy in front of him in the head with it. Anyway its England Im shock his parents could even buy that for him. Shouldn't it be bright orange, padded and have to have some village console approval to have it.  That is of course after filing the paperwork in triplicate and waiting in the cue for half a day

This isn't really new, either. On a school trip to Philadelphia in the mid-1980s, we had tiny toy cannons confiscated on the flight home.

I have to side with the TSA here, not because I think the toys presented a danger, but because this hyperactive, shiatty kid couldn't sit still for a farking flight without his farking toys. Give the twat an iPad with Angry Birds or a farking book. Nobody wants to be with a rowdy child on an airplane. He could have checked it in the suitcase. When I was a kid, 2 Matchbox cars would entertain me for a flight from NY to San Diego

I remember my first flight ever flying from DC to North Dakota as a 3-year-old with nothing but Silly Putty. Making prints of the newspaper was the shiat. It's also the first time I remember drinking 7 Up.

Yeah pretty similar 1982, cept the people acted like adults and put our water pistols in a big envelope and gave it to the captain to carry in the cockpit and we got them back at customs on the way through. Its called customer service and acting like a public servant.

For me, it was pressing the attendant call button so I could hear the "ding!" and then immediately pressing it again to cancel the call so the poor FAs had no idea what seat to attend to.

"She claims she wasn't allowed to put them in the car. " <- why couldn't she take it back?

When i accidentally had a knife on me (on the return trip so they missed it on the way over) they let me try mail it, but obviously the airport didn't have a post office but they had a mailbox but i don't have a stamp or envelope, wait they had a help desk, who did not have stamps or envelopes, nor did the store... so confiscated...

Seems like a lost opportunity. They could make a killing selling stamps and envelopes.

You guys who think oh...it looks like a weapon/could be a weapon and they should know better, need to suck donkey balls and get anally raped.  Oh wait ...you already are and enjoying it.  fark you all,  you terrorist farking cowed scum.  The US the biggest terroristic nation on earth.........
 
2013-08-01 05:16:50 AM
Ahh for the good old days. As a young lad in the sixties my buddy and I would go to the airport dressed in sport-coats pretending to be the Man from Uncle. We carried our replica pistol kits, and all the "agent" goodies we could hide under our jackets. We would pick out some dude and follow him around like he was a bad guy. I remember getting some wierd looks from the lunchlady as I reloaded my pistol at the counter.
In today's atmosphere I'd still be doing time.

I used to hand the security guy my Leatherman, walk through the metal detector and he would hand it back. A few years later some assholes fly some planes into some buildings, and on a farking military deployment on a all military chartered flight, I hand the guy my rifle, walk through the metal detector, and get my rifle back, but they confiscate my toenail clippers because of the 1 inch file on it.

Nope it's still the tsa retards fault. Just because rampant stupidity has become common place does not excuse it nor make it acceptable.

People have such short memories and assume flying was carefree and easy until 9/11.  Almost every security measure we have now was in place long before then thanks to Palestinians and a bunch of crazy Cubans.

Silence! Don't bring logic into a convoluted fark argument
 
2013-08-01 10:13:08 AM
True story. Before 9/11 I was taking a Power Ranger toy "weapon" (the Dragon Dagger that played music) still in its box to someone. Airport security confiscated it since "it looked like a weapon" (and even said "dagger" on the front!) but said I could have it back when I was going to board the plane. I just wasn't allowed to have it in the airport. And yup, I got it back and went on the plane no problem. Common sense has never been high on the list of airport security.

Though I did love the guy who (pre 9/11) had to take away an unattended zebra-striped and hot pink bag clearly full of girly magazines and went through the required routine of treating it like a potential bomb with great exaggeration and comedic flair. He made our flight delay more fun.
