How does a half-dressed man get out on the taxiway at the Atlanta Airport(video below)?
That’s the big question that needs to be answered because passengers have to go through taking off shoes, jackets and anything else deemed necessary to get through security. We do all of that yet a man can make it onto the taxiway at one of the biggest airports in the nation?
We reported recently on a man who jumped from a plane at the jetway and onto the ground. There was also an incident where a man climbed through the baggage carousel without being stopped.
Why is this alarming? It’s very alarming because our Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen and Mike McCaul just reported last week that terrorists are still attempting to blow up an airliner:
Sputnik reports: US Chairman of the House Representatives Homeland Security Committee Mike McCaul spoke about aviation threats during a conversation with Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen at the 2018 Capitol Hill National Security Forum.
“They’re still intent on taking down airplanes. It’s the crown jewel, if you will, for them. They’d love nothing more than to blow up an airline inbound from say Istanbul to JFK [John Fitzgerald Kennedy] airport and we know that they have bomb makers,” McCaul said. McCaul went on saying that Daesh terrorists are also making chemical gases that could be used on airplanes to kill everyone on board within minutes. Nielsen confirmed that the militants’ publications and intelligence, looked through by the Department of Homeland Security, show Daesh desire to take down airplanes.
Airport officials said they are investigating how a half-dressed man got into a restricted area of the airport and ended up running across taxiways and runways.
It happened at Atlanta’s Hartsfield Jackson International Airport shortly before 5 p.m. Tuesday. Airport officials said the passenger was taken into custody.
It shows a half-clothed man running across the runway and taxiway to the plane and throwing his hands up in the air.
FOX 5 viewer Josh Broide also shared a video showing the half-dressed man approach the plane and drop his drawers before laying down in the middle of the taxiway. An officer with the Atlanta Police Department is then seen running up quickly to the man. The man is seen rolling over on to his stomach before the officer reaches him and handcuffs him without further incident. He is then seen being led away and placed into the back of a patrol car.
Police are still trying to determine how he got into the restricted area. His name has not yet been released.
