Hapless Jetskier Criminally Charged for $100 mm Airport Security System’s Total FailureMary Theroux • Tuesday August 14, 2012 4:07 PM PDT •
Your Homeland Security tax dollars at work:
A man whose jet ski broke down in New York’s Jamaica Bay on Friday evening swam to shore, climbed over an 8′ fence, walked across two runways wearing a bright yellow jacket—passing straight through the airport’s $100 million security system “which exceeds federal requirements,” and consists of motion sensors, closed-circuit video surveillance and other security measures—and into a terminal at JFK airport.
The only head apparently under threat of rolling is that of the jetskier himself, who has been charged with criminal trespass.
I guess he was supposed to jump up and down and wave his arms.
Or take off his shoes.
