Looks like it was on both sides. They interviewed a guy that said it started just before the check point and they showed photos of bloody clothing and a weapon on the ground and it looked like it was actually at a gate.

With the way TSA treat the general public on a daily basis, this was bound to happen sooner or later.

I've seen some rumors that it may have been an off-duty TSA agent as well that would pin this as an workplace violence issue, instead of a citizen that just finally snapped.

They just asked that question at the news conference and the police chief said they did not know if the suspect was a TSA agent or not.

Guess we'll just have to wait and see how it all plays out and what is brought to light. Seems like a premeditated and target specific thing thus far.

I wonder if this has something to do with the past events at LAX.

Did you hear the one that said something along the lines of "I didn't see the gun, but it sounds like a .22 or a 30-06"?

Isn't LAX a gun free zone? He should have read the signs that's what they are there for right so the criminals don't bring guns in

Death is a very sad thing for many people.

Unfortunately, the TSA is an unconstitutional organization that is not only inefficient, they are hiring convicted felons, thieves, pedophiles and child pornographers.

http://www.wmctv.com/story/18781511/...ires-criminals

http://www.naturalnews.com/036346_TS...tleblower.html

http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/21-...225873791.html


These links can go on and on, forever.

I understand that within any 'authority' group, you'll have 'bad apples'. The hiring/screening processes though are supposed to weed out 99% of these types of people BEFORE they get to work. Sadly, I have a feeling that the TSA Overlords actually PLAN to hire thieves, pedophiles, etc.

Aside from that, every TSA agent is guilty of molestation. This is a FACT. You cannot legally touch someone the way they do under the guise of 'security' - this has been refuted by multiple private security experts, private airport security experts, police, etc. See my sig for why trading liberties for security never works.

I personally feel that if you take a job where your primary function is to subvert people's constitutional rights to privacy AND you molest people daily, you deserve to take some lead to the chest.


As far as this particular incident goes, I'm guessing it's a setup just like the recent shootings. Half of these individuals who are going on these rampages are under the influence of anti-depressants, which in a VERY LARGE portion of mass shootings, the shooters are almost always on multiple psych meds - but you won't hear this from the mainstream. You'll hear "GUNS ARE BAD! SEE!" rather than "Anti-psych meds at fault for mass shooting"

This delves into mind control, the theater shooting shooter was quoted in jail of saying that he was under the care of an 'evil psychiatrist'...while he may very well just be crazy, there are MULTIPLE accounts of the US government using mind control to make people do horrible, horrible things (IE Project MKULTRA)

The TSA should be abolished...do I think you should roll into an airport and light people up? Not necessarily...but I do not have one shred of sympathy for any of the agents shot/killed. They deserved it the second they molested people.

ALSO...

http://www.infowars.com/lax-shooter-...ty-tsa-worker/

UPDATE: UPI reports that the suspect, 23-year-old Paul Anthony Ciancia who is reportedly not a TSA officer as previously reported, had “writings” on him indicating he may have embraced “strong anti-government views.”
From NBC:

NBC News’ Pete Williams reported that the suspect is Paul Anthony Ciancia, a 23-year-old resident of LA, with no direct connection to the TSA. He had “anti-government materials” on him at the time.
UPDATE: The media is now reporting that the gunman was not an off-duty TSA officer, which is a strange flip flop from earlier when law enforcement sources said that he was. This can now be exploited to justify further TSA abuse of power, which would have not been possible if the shooter had been a TSA agent.

The L.A. Times reports: “A federal law enforcement official said that the gunman was a ticketed passenger entering the airport. Officials don’t believe the gunman has ever worked for TSA. Law enforcement sources had earlier told The Times the gunman was a TSA employee.”



I am beginning to wholeheartedly believe that these recent shootings incidents are staged, to some extent, to demonize gun owners and those who disagree or do not like the US government.

A little extreme much? Every TSA agent is a molester and deserves some lead to the chest? You can't target any entire entity and call them all molesters. There are cops that end up taking bribes and breaking the law, so in your theory all cops MUST be criminals. Every "incident" with the TSA is blown way out of proportion and every one cries rape. The day TSA lets a gunman onto a plane and everything goes to hell the public is gonna be in an outrage for more security.

What you fail to see is that a part of the airport screening process is to grope and molest people. EVERY agent is guilty. And no, the 'incidents' are not localized or overblown. There are hundreds upon hundreds of TSA agents with records, including child molestation.

They do a pat down. Pretty sure their manual doesn't say to grope and grind you. Get your panties out of a bunch. I've had pat downs and gone through all the new machines, never had an issue.

Not to necessarily disagree, but to play Devil's advocate... that's what people said when the "paranoid people" were saying NSA was spying on everyone, and that the Patriot Act would be the end of our privacy.

Yup. I have 0 sympathy for any of the bad things that have or will happen to them. They rate a little higher than yeast in my mind.

"Gerardo Hernandez was identified as the 39-year-old victim of Friday morning's attack. The slain agent was married and a father of two, a son and a daughter."

I suspect his wife and children rated him higher than yeast in their minds seeing as how that`s all they have left of him now is a memory of him in their minds.

Normally I would go for a cheap shot like "Grow a brain" or something along those lines, but if I were you I would go for a heart first.
