Passenger angry after she was told she couldn’t bring items on flight

Hyunjoo Kim 

ORLANDO, Fla. -

An American Airlines passenger was arrested at Orlando International Airport on Wednesday after police say she hit two Transportation Security Administration agents while going through a security checkpoint.

According to the police report, Hyunjoo Kim, 39, of South Korea, was coming through the west passenger screening checkpoint at OIA on Wednesday morning when she became upset that she had to be patted down during the screening process.

When she was told she had prohibited items, she became enraged, swinging several times at a TSA officer and slapping her on the face, according to the report. Kim then shoved another TSA officer in the chest several times in an attempt to get her bag, police said.

Kim was yelling profanities at the TSA officers when police arrived and denied hitting anyone, despite multiple witnesses telling police they saw the incident. She was booked into the Orange County Jail on two counts of battery on transit agents.

    TSA needs to be more culturally sensitive. Insinuating criminal intent and stealing is looked down upon in Korean culture.

    Sigh. Not long ago, we Amercans felt entitled to live in a free society.

    (article never specifies what ‘prohibited items’ she alleged had in her possession)

    She didn’t enjoy being treated like a criminal and molested by perverts?

    Welcome to a fundamentally transforming AmeriKa sweetheart.

    Sometimes crazy people serve a purpose. Like running a herd of sheep through a minefield.

    Would help if she were a black tranny Islamoid….in a wheelchair….on her (its) way to Planned Parenthood….to abort twins….and register to vote in each of the 57 States as a…wait for it….Demorrhoid. Oh yeah, while holding a 30 round AR magazine on NBC.

    I’ve been through customs in Haiti. $100 cash – no problem, no questions. The poor progressive bastards that “were above” bribery and thought all cultures were equally good were molested for an hour at least.

    We are becoming a 3rd-world shithole under a 3rd-world wannabe dictator prick. Better learn how to deal with corruptocrats.

    Coincidentally, Hyunjoo Kim means Joan Of Arc in Korean.

    She’s here for a reason.
