PHILADELPHIA (AP) ―A Philadelphia man faces up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to boarding an airplane while carrying a concealed weapon. Twenty-nine-year-old Damien Young pleaded guilty Thursday to sneaking a 9 mm handgun into Philadelphia International Airport and onto a flight at bound for Phoenix on June 4. Young was allegedly helped by roommate and airline employee Roshid Milledge.
Prosecutors say Milledge switched bags with Young at the gate to bypass security. Authorities say Young was moving to Phoenix and wanted to take the legally registered gun with him.
This has to be one of the fastest lay downs in criminal history, no one gives up this fast, what else do the Fed’s have on these goons ? Never seem such a thing, both guys will plead guility within 60 days of arrest, get 10 years in a Federal prison and do the full stretch, no one in their right mind would go this route, these guys are in their 30's, something big hanging over their heads.............................

TAMPA – A federal magistrate today, June 26th ordered 24-year-old Saudi Arabian national RAED AL-SAIF held without bail on a charge he tried to bring a knife with a 7-inch blade aboard a plane at Tampa International Airport. A federal prosecutor said Alsaif is in the United States on a student visa and was attending the University of Tampa until he was “academically dismissed” for bad grades May 27. Because he failed to file a timely appeal, he is in violation of his visa.
Hansen said Alsaif had numerous credit and identification cards, some in other people’s names, when he was arrested. He also detailed a spotty record of addresses Alsaif gave to investigators and his school; Alsaif was carrying two Florida ID cards with different addresses.
On the morning of June 4th, the FBI says an airline employee in Philadelphia helped his friend bypass security and onto a plane with an unloaded handgun in his bag. At about the same time, a man with ties to a controversial Islamic school was arrested for allegedly trying to secret a 7-inch butcher knife onto a Tampa flight. FBI Special Agent Frank Burton in Philadelphia said the agency is “looking into” in any possible connections.
Bill Warner, a Sarasota, Fla., private investigator who has worked with federal agencies on terrorist-related issues, says the cases should raise red flags.
