Note the leaps and bounds. The story of what he was up to comes from "a knowledgeable source with ranking law enforcement contacts" - anonymous, of course - to the Southern Poverty Law Center (why there?), at which point they 'analyze' the hell out of it to turn it into a story of blame, which then becomes the Official Story: "Media Silent About Beck, Jones Influence On LAX Shooter". Media silent? Ha!
Paul Ciancia is a complete cypher, with virtually no internet presence, and is remembered with the customary shocked surprise by those who knew him.
And of course: "LAX shooting underlines security vulnerabilities" (my emphasis in red):
"The slain officer was the first TSA employee killed in the line of duty, according to J. David Cox Sr, president of the American Federation of Government Employees, a union that represents many TSA workers.The TSA's checkpoint officers are not law enforcement and are not armed.While Friday's tragedy was a first, "assaults of officers occur on a daily basis," said Cox, in a telephone conference call.Asked what could be done to improve security at the airport, Cox said he would like "our officers to be able to make arrests. That would be a big improvement if they had arrest power." Instead, they have to turn to local law enforcement when assaulted."
You may remember that the last LAX shooting was also extremely hinky."American airports are not prepared for violence on the ground, said Rafi Ron, president of Virginia-based New Age Security Solutions. Most of the measures taken since 9/11 are aimed at protecting aircraft from attack."In the United States, we don't have vehicle checkpoints and we don't have people watching who comes into the terminals and the presence of armed personnel is very, very thin," said Ron, a former head of security of Ben-Gurion Airport near Tel Aviv, Israel.Vehicles driving into Ben-Gurion Airport must clear a vehicle checkpoint, and there are security personnel at all terminal entrances, he said. "It would be almost impossible to walk into the terminal with a gun. If he started shooting, he would probably be dead in a matter of seconds because of the heavy presence of security personnel.""
