Airport security finds ammunition in Don King's luggage

Security officials found ammunition in the carry-on luggage of boxing promoter Don King as he headed out of Cleveland, Ohio, after attending his wife's funeral, an airport spokeswoman said Monday.

The incident took place at Cleveland's Hopkins International Airport Sunday night, said spokeswoman Jackie Mayo.

"He was stopped at a security checkpoint and ammunition was found in his carry-on luggage," she said.

  1. sport is opium

    Sports have been called the "opium of the masses". That would make Don King a big pusher, and so for services rendered he get's away with stuff. He probably keystered the actual handguns this ammo was intended for. Or his hair is big enough to hide a sawed-off shotgun.

    Just another dumb n..gger who can't get it right. Did he pull the race card?

    "You singled me out cuz I'm black!"

    No.... Its cuz you had ammo you dope...

    But being black is a close second reason to double check you out..... Just read the papers and everyone knows you all like to carry illigal firearms. In violation of the law. Rappers, pro football, drug dealers, and so on.

    Its easy to confirm that line of thinking by reading CNN NEWS HEADLINES

    Let's all put ammunition in our bags and see how many of us don't get arrested and charges filed against us? Equality in Law? The Race Card? Favoritism? Public Figure? Where did the lack of an arrest and charges come from? Where is it stated in any law?

      The TSA finally got something right.

      They are going to get shot down in court if they keep on using their "administrative searches" to go on fishing expeditions or trump up charges. (They're going to get shot down for scope n' grope anyway, but that's a side issue.) This time they simply confiscated the old gent's ammo. This was more appropriate, although I think the best solution is to insist a passenger put such items in his/her checked luggage.

      For a government agency to go about casually "confiscating" our possessions is unwise. They should try to make sure citizen's property rights are protected to the greatest extent possible. Such practices, even if grossly inconvenient, serve to remind both the agent and the citizen of the proper relationship between the government and the citizen.

      I'm no particular fan of Don King, but old coots, codgers and duffers should always be given benefit of the doubt. It's unlikely Mr. King intended to carry the ammo on board. It's even less likely any harm would have resulted.

  7. sport card

    They aren't playing the racist deck with this one. This card is right off the top of our red-white-and bluest deck of all: American Sports. It's so honorable and full of drama. We know each athletic adventure by heart and rote and hail the gossip mongers to feed us the misadventures of Tiger Woods. However, when these reported misadventures involve someone somebody voted for, we wanna burn down the Natinal Enquirer building and improson their CEO. Go figure.

    Great idea Roger....

    And 5 of your friends can each bring one piece of a Glock 9mm the one made of polymer, to get through metal detector. Then just a spring and a barrel and you can assemble it once you all pass through TSA security.....

    It's a brilliant idea.... I bet no body thought of that yet....... really???
