I've been on the road for a couple weeks, so I didn't catch the buzz about the self-proclaimed "Patriot Pilot" until just today. A recent CNN article summarizes the story: An airline pilot named Chris Liu is concerned that security measures for airport workers are severely lacking...at least at his home base of KSFO. He feels that TSA is being very hypocritical by enforcing burdensome and intrusive security measures (like full body scans and pat-downs) for airline passengers while letting baggage handlers, marshalers and others onto the flight line by just swiping a key card.
Wanting to let people know about the problems (and I suspect hoping public outcry would put pressure on some bureaucrats to make implement some changes,) he used his phone to record video clips showing some of the weak security measures and posted them on YouTube. (Sorry, he's since taken them down.)
Obviously the airport and TSA didn't like this. They revoked his certification to carry a handgun in the cockpit and sent 6 air marshals to his home to confiscate his weapon. He's naturally a tad worried about further reprecussions.
