Knife found in bra of passenger at Honolulu Airport

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 01:55 p.m. HST, Jul 19, 2013

Transportation Security Administration screeners stopped a woman at the Honolulu Airport after a 3-inch pocketknife was discovered concealed in her bra, the TSA said in a blog post.

The TSA said the knife was discovered after the woman went through a metal detector earlier this week.

The blog post noted that it is important for travelers to examine their bags to ensure no prohibited items are inside and cited the Honolulu incident as an example of items found “in the strangest places.”

 Also this week, TSA screeners found a box cutter blade in a passenger’s shoe in Salt Lake City; a 17.5 inch sword inside the cane of a Laredo, Texas passenger, a lipstick knife in San Antonio and a credit card knife in Albuquerque.

Greeeeeat.....now that means that I get a more thorough molestation of my boobs because of this chick. Well, I certainly hope that in their 'examination', they will let us know if they find any cancerous lumps and suspicious moles.

Actually that might be a good thing as the Asiana airlines that hard landed in San Francisco, required emergency crew workers from outside to throw in knives to flight attendants so that they could cut out passengers who were stuck by their seatbelts. If that woman used a ceramic / hard plastic knife that would not have been detected using a metal detector.

Just when the TSA wants to relax the SOP protocol for allowing small knifes on board a plane, we have a rotten apple to spoil it all.
