    Tonight on 20/20... how's that air security???

    Alright folks,

    It would mean a bit to me if you folks would take a gander at the news tonight..

    "Watch TONIGHT on ABC at 6:30 / 5:30 PM Central and then on 20/20 at 10/9 PM Central"

    What's the big deal??? Learn a little bit about the workings of one of the best tactically trained group of LEOS in the country operating under one of the worst group of managers in the country.

    The Federal Air Marshal Service.

    One of the agents is coming on the news to tell the story how it really is. I'm familiar with this fella, and he shoots straight.

    The FAM Service has been poorly run IMHO since they were under the FAA's Civil Aviation Security Division before 9/11....I knew a lot of FAMs (shot at their range in Atlantic City, NJ once) due to having worked for the FAA and due to my current FLEO job.

    I saw part of the story on the national news tonight, and the guy was telling the truth. I've made quite a few by watching the aircraft entryway and checking out the "early boarders.

    It's a sad situation.
