    Sock monkey's 2-inch pistol confiscated by TSA

    May has a small business selling unique sock monkey dolls. She says she and her husband were on their way from St. Louis to Sea-Tac and she had a couple of monkeys and sewing supplies with her in a carry-on bag.

    “His pistol was in there,” she says of the sock monkey “Rooster Monkburn,” a take-off on John Wayne character “Rooster Cogburn” from the film “True Grit.”
    May said the TSA agent went through the bag, through the sewing supplies and found the two-inch long pistol.

    “She said ‘this is a gun,’” said May. “I said no, it’s not a gun it’s a prop for my monkey.”

    “She said ‘If I held it up to your neck, you wouldn’t know if it was real or not,’ and I said ‘really?’” said May.

    The TSA agent told May she would have to confiscate the tiny gun and was supposed to call the police.

    More idiocy from the TSA
    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    So a couple years ago I'm taking a typical trailer trash complaint. The house is a mess inside. Stinks. A fellow officer on my team says places like that "Smell like welfare". All of a sudden the RP/victim (big old gal. body by Burger King and Pizza Hut) realizes that she's going to be late for work. She quickly waddles over to a closet and pulls out a TSA uniform.

    Yeah I feel much safer in this post-9/11 world now that we have TSA on the job.
