Security Breach Briefly Closes Newark Airport Checkpoint

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A security checkpoint at New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport was briefly shut down because a prohibited item was found in a bag.

Transportation Security Administration spokesman Nico Melendez says the item was found Sunday afternoon at a checkpoint in Terminal C, one of the airport’s three major terminals. He says he doesn’t know what the item was. But he says there didn’t appear to be any malicious intent by the person who had it.

The checkpoint reopened 45 minutes later. Authorities say the closure didn’t cause any major delays or problems at the airport, one of the nation’s busiest.

Last month, a computer monitor checked as baggage caused a security scare at the airport and prompted officials to shut part of Terminal A for an hour as a precaution.

    grant, nathan, THE GOOD SAMARITAN. Same employee that works for CBS. They’ll just censor all the sensible remarks here and leave the sniveling platitudes.

    When you read DanTe’s comments across all the different articles, you have to wonder whether he really believes what he is saying or if he is just trying to get a rise out of people. I hope it is the latter, but I fear it is not – there is an awful lot of hatred there. I guess he wasn’t held enough as a child or maybe his daddy touched him inappropriately when he was little.

      Some people like to eradicate diseases that kills people, like polio and smallpox. You, on the other hand, wants to have a sit down with them and chat a bit. Maybe get to know them “better”. DOLTS!

      FACT: Everywhere where there are mu-Slimes, sh-!t happens.

      China — sh-!t happens
      (suicide bombers that kill little children and run amok with metal pipes in the streets)

      India — sh-!t happens
      (mu-slimes burned 100s of hindus alive in packed trains and burned villagers alive while they slept)

      Middle East — sh-!t happens
      (suicide bombers that kill little children)

      Russia — sh-!t happens
      (suicide bombers that kill women and children in crowded theaters)

      South East Asia — sh-!t happens
      (mu-slime thugs who kidnap teachers, school children, nurses, priests for ransom, than murder them all)

      Europe — sh-!t happens
      (suicide bombers that kill little children)

      USA — 9/11 happened

      Notice the pattern here? Even you sanctimonious twits can’t be that dense.

      Goes to reason, no mu-slimes, no sh-!t.
      All these camel turds understand is violence and lies anyway. I say we oblige them by killing them all and than lie about how sorry we are.

      Islam. It’s a disease. And like any other infestations of boils, pox and pestilence, it should be eradicated. You don’t talk to diseases. You eradicate them like you did polio and small pox.

      And some bleeding heart imbecile here will post that it’s just a few “radical” individuals that are murderous, just like any other society. But than conveniently forgetting about the Fact that it happens worldwide and by a LOT MORE than just a few individuals. And they also continues to blank out of their empty heads the worldwide mu-slime jubilee celebrations as people burned on 9/11.

    DAN TE YOU ARE AN IDIOT

    1. DanTe says:

      JLUGO, HOW ABOUT SOME FACTS.

      OH WAIT, TRUTH IS ANATHEMA TO YOU POLITICALLY CORRECT T ARDS.

      GO WORK IN TALL BURNING BUILDINGS. MAYBE YOU’LL GET SOME LIGHT TO SHINE THROUGH YOUR EMPTY SKULL.

  4. DanTe says:

    Yes. Let’s inconvenience everyone and run around like headless chickens. Just because muslimes like to kill people. Why not do the simple, inexpensive and non intrusive thing: place islam on the disease list banned from flying?

    Islam, it’s a disease that should have been cured a long time ago.

    Our society is so messed up right now … it’s sad😦
