[citation][nom]C00lIT[/nom]Ouch, that's bad news for the airport security staff.I don't want to say compliment the criminals... but they pulled off an impressive job.[/citation]
... they were bandits disguised as security guards... [ta-ta-tāāāāāāā!!!]
Airport is not a secured area, contrary to common belief, especially cargo area. Still, something like this at JFK must have been an inside job. Not sure who will lead the investigation, NYPD, FBI, or someone else, but hope they are at least as competent as South African police. I was once robbed of half-million-dollar worth computer hardware at Johannesburg airport, and a week later a suspect was caught. Unfortunately, his arrest couldn't lead to the recovery of any goods because he was sure his family would be killed if he helped the police. But I think the police did what they could under given circumstances.
[citation][nom]CaedenV[/nom]and people think that we are safe from terrorist attacks? Airport security (well... most security) is mostly for show. If someone with intelligence wants something, they will find a way to get it.[/citation]
"Terrorist" are so overhyped....
If the US's power projection wasn't so obvious and aggressive, there wouldn't be that many "terrorist"
You get more (drugs or others) smugglers going through airports than "terrorist".
As far as I'm concerned, "terrorist" is just an excuse for Big Brother to impose fascism.
A good example would be London with all those CCTVs around.....one in ever corner.

I disagree with the whole "security is over rated" concept. Althou, Yes.. Lots of smuggling drugs etc and terrorism on the whole is probably highly overrated. With that being said.. Security is actually very good in our country and we should be thankful for it. One prime example is look what happens when no rules apply and there is no security. Hurricane Katrina? What happened.. Looting, Murder, Rape, things went CRAZY! Same thing with hurricane Sandy, Soon as there was less presence of order. Instantly people are stealing crap, etc etc. Only takes a moment of opportunity for people to show their true colors.
As much as i may dislike authority figures. They are necessary and keep a balance. Without them it would be chaos.
I guess this is added to their sales record instant 3,600 added sales. You heard that google and amazon? Next thing we see a whole cargo ship of samsung tablets stolen..whahaha.. This tablet sales fight is getting dirty...
I smirked at this at first, but a second or two later I realized that insurance will cover this loss so is Apple really affected. If anything, insurance rates for others might increase so the insurance companies can recoup the loss.
