There’s tragedy in the news again. On August 16th Mardin Amin tried to sneak a little item onboard a flight from O’Hare and unfortunately his mom was with him. As some of you may know, I do have some, um, pull in the security industry and was able to get my hands on this audio transcript of the ugly incident.

Later, at home with mom and grounded, Mr. Amin was startled when mom entered his room unannounced. Again, it wasn’t pretty. Reached by telephone, Mr. Amin insisted his mom isn’t that mad at him even though he’s remaining grounded until his September 13 court date. He sounded almost boastful and said proudly, “I have the situation well in hand.”
