This is not a game. They should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the laws.
Agreed, the excuse I was just testing security is not acceptable. You know who else tests security, legit threats. Would this TV crew pull a fire alarm to see how people react? or bring a fake AK to a concert to 'test security'? I would hope not but seems like they might.
The news media is not a 'testing service' for any federal mandates or agencies, yet they believe it is their God given right to check up anyone and anything of their choosing. Yes, this media crew should be made an example of and prosecuted as a terrorist attempt, so other 'fact checkers' don't do the same thing.
I agree with you 100%. Just put these "jugheads" all on the NO FLY LIST. Then these dweebs might understand how very serious this nonsense will never be tolerated. The News Agency associated with these monkeys should be fined heavily and jail time for the head ape reporting this idiotic stunt.
Wasn’t a news show.
not very smart TV crew!
