Sacramento-area pilot punished for YouTube video

SACRAMENTO, CA – An airline pilot is being disciplined by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for posting video on YouTube pointing out what he believes are serious flaws in airport security.

The 50-year-old pilot, who lives outside Sacramento, asked that neither he nor his airline be identified. He has worked for the airline for more than a decade and was deputized by the TSA to carry a gun in the cockpit.

He is also a helicopter test pilot in the Army Reserve and flew missions for the United Nations in Macedonia.

Three days after he posted a series of six video clips recorded with a cell phone camera at San Francisco International Airport, four federal air marshals and two sheriff’s deputies arrived at his house to confiscate his federally-issued firearm. The pilot recorded that event as well and provided all the video to News10.

    Napolitano’s office:


    After hearing a brief recorded message (and no requests to press 1 for English), you can leave a message.

    I frequently do, and I do not cross the border (so to speak) so as to invite agents to my home. In fact, I proudly announce my name and phone number, then offer my candid opinion of the corrupt departments led by the most rotten on high in the Oval Office. That Napolitano has blood on her hands is an understatement; she should be tried for derelict of duty in a court not tainted by Holder’s reach.
