TSA Wants Armed Law Enforcement at Checkpoints

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Transportation Security Administration is recommending that armed law enforcement be present at airport security checkpoints during peak hours after conducting a nationwide review in response to a shooting at Los Angeles International Airport last fall.


The internal report was obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press. It is being released to Congress, which will consider the recommendations.


The AP has reported that the two armed officers at the LAX terminal had left for breaks and were out of the terminal. Airport police decided months earlier to have officers roam terminals instead of staffing checkpoints such as the one approached by a gunman.


The shooting killed a TSA screener and wounded three other people.
