Often people will arrive at an airport an hour or even less before departure. That's not much time to check up on any allegations, create a risk profile or seek a professional opinion. And then it's just a security rent-a-cop's gut decison. And we all know that the average IQ at airport security is not exactly nobel-prize worthy. And if a family misses a flight because a rent-a-plod was duped by an attention seeking child, the negative outfall of that is not something they would want to deal with. The family might run to the press and allege they made them miss the flight for racist reasons or something and then the heat is 100% on the security guy. So in case of doubt, security will probably shut their eyes and look the other way.

Something like this needs way more manpower, training, infrastructure etc if it is to be effective. and that means spending a lot of money, something the UK is very reluctant to do these days.
The child is going to be at least early teens so will be a bit more credible than a tantrum-throwing toddler not wanting to board a plane. Plus, with this spoon thing, they at least have to think about it in advance and therefore it won't be as simple as just have a dig at their parents on a whim.

You can't just rock up for a flight to, say, Islamabad less than an hour before boarding so there is, in fact, time.

Your rent-a-cop normally passes suspicions onto superiors rather than dealing with such issues in the security hall.

Somebody should tell them to put a metal spoon in their pants. Else it's going to be a long, uncomfortable flight with a plastic spoon pressing into your private area.

Hungarian foreign minister on Breitbart, of course he’ll say that. I bet when he stands up he’ll be wearing a corset and suspenders and frilly Eva Braun knickers.

Another video from another alt right & well known conspiracy theorist.
No, I did not bother viewing it when you cannot be bothered to even try to make some sort of relevant comment?

Who was the first one ?

EDIT : I also wasn't aware of the story of the "Yemeni refugees" flying en masse to a resort island in South Korea because it allowed visa-free entry and then declaring asylum - you should watch the video - you might learn something. Then again...

Hover over the creators photo - click - takes you to his youtube channel - check the titles of all his previous videos - educated judgement made. Simple.

Personally, I get a sinking feeling every time I see a video link entitled 'Everything they're not telling you about...' If ever there were a trademark for conspiracy theorists, that's it.

Re: All about Muslims (in the wake of terrorist attacks in Europe)

Kids saw the distinctive video "triangle", demanded to watch it. Daddy refused. Kids wanted to know why there was a person with a blanket on their head. Interesting lesson on personal choice and cultural expectations followed.

Every day is a day at school.

And Daddy got an excuse to look at pictures of Amish women in bonnets...

Not sure who was the first one but I am sure you have a full list in your favourites

Now you see my post was correct, if the OP had posted a comment on the video like you have then I might have been tempted to view it.

In what sense is your post "correct" ? Capo's post was of a video directly related to migrant abuse. Your post is an admission of your own laziness to find out the underlying content , deliberate ignorance and topped off with an ad hominem.

Somebody doesn't read Reuters. The story is a month old.
