TSA officer help identify man wanted after a manslaughter conviction

Good job TSA!! TSA who caught him that he was individual wanted for manslaughter charge from Jackson, MS. Came out a false identification and he got a fake ID.

I'm glad they got him and he is going back to prison again.

Shouldn't the police be doing this? The TSA does a bad enough job of screening passengers and their bags for dangerous things - seems they should focus on that.

Since the Wright Brothers -- well, since the beginning of airport security screening in the 1970s -- a security checkpoint has always been a great location to catch a bad guy. Cops at all levels have been sending out APBs for decades. This has nothing to do with 9-11, the emergence of the TSA from a swamp or TSA checkpoint sexual assaults. It was simply good police work.

Ironically, if he had used a real ID in his actual name, he would not have been caught.

Of course he was probably afraid or maybe even aware that his real name was on a watchlist. Not sure if the airline would have caught that or not but he apparently didnít want to take the chance.
