Violent Attack On TSA Officers

The account of the violent attack on TSA officers reported by the press usually leads the public to assume that the perpetrator is already guilty and that a conviction is certain. Even one who commits a heinous crime has rights under the constitution and is innocent until proven guilty.

Reported by CNN: TSA officers violently attacked with machete and wasp spray at New Orleans airport

"A man armed with a machete and wasp spray stormed through a security area at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport on Friday night before being shot, authorities said.

The incident started when White entered a security checkpoint for Concourse B and began spraying Transportation Security Administration agents and bystanders with a can of wasp spray, a sheriff's office statement said.

Several bystanders suffered minor injuries. Some ran into furniture, as they scrambled to get out of the way. One person was grazed in the arm by a bullet, Normand said.

"Officials acted quickly to secure @NO_Airport," Landrieu tweeted. "Our thoughts are with those injured in line of duty & we wish them a full & speedy recovery."
