On November 15th, while Americans were being subjected to being groped by TSA agents and/or body scans, a North Carolina teen made his way onto the tarmac at the Charlotte airport and climbed into the wheel well of US Air jet. He later plunged to his death, landing in a quiet Milton, Massachusetts neighborhood.
The grieving mother of a North Carolina teen — who “likely” plummeted from the sky over Milton after toppling out of a Boeing 737 wheel well — slammed airport security last night, saying her boy should have been stopped on the tarmac.
“I thought that after 9/11 there would be more security, especially on the ground,” said Jonette Washington, mother of 16-year-old Delvonte Tisdale.
“He was a good kid. He wasn’t really going to Boston. He was trying to get to Baltimore to get to me,” she tearfully told the Herald.
In a stunning announcement, Norfolk District Attorney William R. Keating said yesterday it’s “likely” the teen climbed into a wheel well of a jet in Charlotte, N.C., on Nov. 15 and fell to his death over Milton at about 9 p.m. Keating said a neighbor heard “a loud crashing noise” around that time.
Imagine what could have happened if it had been a terrorist who had climbed into that wheel well and not just a messed up teenager? It’s a good thing we’re groping nuns and toddlers at airports, huh?
