Police arrived and the experts from the local PD decide to fondle her Airweight revolver.

Somehow, some rocket scientist cop negligently discharges the gun.

Thankfully nobody was injured.

So, absent-minded flight attendant now faces criminal charges and criminally negligent cop merely gets desk duty.  How is that fair?



Flight Attendant Tries to Bring Loaded Gun Through Airport Security

(ABC News) – A Republic Airlines flight attendant was detained and then charged with disorderly conduct after she attempted to pass through security at the Philadelphia International Airport with a loaded .38 revolver in her purse, triggering an incident in which police accidentally discharged the weapon while securing it, authorities said.

According to officials, at 6:33 a.m. today, the flight attendant entered a Terminal C security checkpoint lane with a loaded .38 caliber Smith and Wesson Airweight revolver in her purse.

A Transportation Security Administration employee discovered the gun on the x-ray machine and notified police.

The flight attendant was taken to secondary screening room, where an airport police officer attempted to unload the gun, and it discharged into a wall.
