Skip to comments.Sacramento's whistleblowing pilot explains why he did it (lost gun,badge for telling truth)
Posted on 12/23/2010 5:39:24 PM PST by STARWISE
The airline pilot who was reprimanded by the TSA for posting videos showing security flaws at a major airport is speaking out exclusively for the first time, saying that it was the "fallacy of the system" that inspired him to take this action.
He first posted the videos to YouTube on November 28. Three days later, he says, four federal air marshals and two local sheriff's deputies showed up at his home to question him about the footage. The pilot filmed the conversation, during which the federal marshals confiscated his federally-issued firearm.

Domination, intrusion, destruction, retribution ... submission ?
No, Resistance. If this be treason, make the most of it.
I guess the whistle blowing regs only protect when you don’t try to point out the flaws of the ‘i-won’ and his regime.
There’s a war coming
I guess so ... Big Sis too
Drudge .. in big, red letters
“DARK SIDE OF SIS: AGENTS SEARCH HOME OF PILOT CRITICAL OF TSA”
From time to time it is commented on here that maybe, just maybe our sworn law enforcement officers would not act lock step in obeying commands against upstanding, law abiding citizens. Any comment that would support that stance is clearly without merit. I cannot hear what you say because what you do speaks so loudly.

For documenting what every other traveler can plainly see walking through a terminal?
What a bunch of BS. If his name was Moore he’d be invited to a State Of The Union address.
Don’t need no stinkin “net neutrality.” We feds can do whatever we want to the little people and they better like it. At the very least they better just shut up.
.. You don’t have no stinkin’ rights ... Ping!
When you can show the State where they’re wrong rather than fixing it you’re the one who is arrested. You can show the feds how to take down a plane with dental floss. You think they’d thank you?
This is outrageous
Such is the response to Napolitano’s own campaign “see something, say something”.
This should be the final straw that breaks the camels back. Fire Napolitano for utter incompetence.
Butch is putting on her strap on.....
Coming hell! They are warring on us now for all they are worth.
Lawyer up, bud, you might get rich.
>>>This is outrageous<<<
No, its the new NORMAL.
This is the “Fundamental Change” he had planned for America.
A country Ruled by a Marxist belief that the ends justify the means where he and his Party can do anything they want to anyone..anytime with ZERO checks and balances.
Totalitarian Leftist Power.
At some point I can not imagine that this country’s citizens will endure this forever without an uprising.
This pilot may have just saved hundreds or even thousands of lives and he is now an Enemy of the State.

And what right do federal marshalls have to come to someone’s home and take their legal firearms? Oh, I forgot. The constitution doesn’t mean anything anymore. We’ve given up our liberty for security. And we don’t even have security.
Isn't that just what happened to another whistle blower, Lt.Col. Terry Lakin and Pastor James David Manning, PhD, at the hearing for Lakin plus FCC zeroing in on the internet, hello???
There are the beginnings of an uprising now and thank God for that and that it is not yet violent and hopefully won't need to be. We are placated with elections every two years while the left marches on. We must march harder in opposition to avoid violence. Otherwise we will have it.
I believe the pilot was an FFDO, and the weapon he had was the property of the government, as part of the FFDO program. That being said, Napolitano is way out of line and would do much better to thank the pilot and solicit as much information from this man as possible. What a bumbling, power grabbing fool she is.
>And what right do federal marshalls have to come to someones home and take their legal firearms? <
It was a TSA issued firearm apparently.
This is not the “United States of America” we used to know. It’s something very different and very disturbing. Germany 1934.
Very, VERY ominous.
I heard just a bit of his interview on Shephard Smith’s show this afternoon. Amazing that he has the guts to point out the LACK of security and is grounded for doing so.
Wasn’t it about a month ago that a kid stowed away in the wheel well of a jet? How in the world was he allowed to get out to the tarmac?
Yeah, Nappy...tell us again how the “system worked”.
More and more mind boggling and infuriating.
This shows how deep the sellout of liberties go when your next door neighbor i.e. sheriff deputy becomes part of the national gestaple. Serious enough when your neighbor gets paid by the federal government to go after you, but difficult to accept that such can happen at the local level. Of course I suspect many German Jews had the same qualms.
