Shocking TSA Lapse: Man Walks Through Security & On Plane Without Ticket

We would all like to believe that the estimated $7.55 billion the government spent on TSA services would have improved security at our nation’s airports. With that being said, it is certainly not a good look for TSA to allow a man to easily walk through a TSA checkpoint and on to a flight at Dallas-Fort Worth Airport in order to confront his girlfriend, who was leaving him.

CBS in Dallas-Fort Worth recently shared video footage of Damarias Cockerham of Garland, Texas, easily walking through the security checkpoint at D-16 and boarding an American Airlines plane bound for Guatemala City, Guatemala. Cockerham confidently walks through an unguarded metal detector, and simply moves the security belt to the side and walks through, unnoticed.

He is able to get down the jetway before a gate agent chases him down to escort him off the plane. Police arrive to address the situation 14 minutes after Cockerham crossed the TSA checkpoint. To view the full video, please visit CBS Dallas-Fort Worth.

  1. Wow impressing. I bet that if hundreds would try that every day, a quite high percentage would have success.

  2. What’s worse is European airports mandating quotas for the hiring of ‘minorities’ (Muslims) in secure areas (like baggage handling), especially in countries which have large Muslim populations, to show that they are PC.

    This will eventually allow terrorists a vector by which to bring down a plane. Hope I am not on it. It’s like Russian roulette.

  3. @Billy Bob we should not single out/profile anything based on anything because that’s not nice, even though that is what school taught us about science. I guess people can change from time to time, but characteristics/laws of universe does not so ok to predict in the realm of science just not people.

  4. Umm – One or more people need to be fired from this “government agency.” This lapse in airport security is unacceptable & alarming !!!
