Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Fire him but......

This certainly isn't a police matter.

Broward Sheriff's investigators are looking at surveillance video footage in hopes of discovering who quoted a Bible passage that denounces homosexuality over the public address system this week at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

The Broward County mayor apologized for the incident Friday, and the county administrator vowed that if a county employee were found to be behind the incident, the person would be fired.

The unauthorized announcement quoted from Leviticus 20:13, which, depending on the translation of the Bible, states that: "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death."

The passage was read more than once over the public address system in the baggage area of Terminal 3 at 12:45 a.m. Tuesday, prompting complaints from a local gay couple.


The microphone to the intercom system is "technically" accessible to the public, but it is for airport employee use only and a code must be entered to select the loudspeakers on which it is heard, Eggelletion said. About 400 Broward County employees work at the airport, along with 11,000 people who work for private airlines and other airport-related businesses.
I'm not defending what this person did, he or she should be fired, but why is this police matter. Doesn't the Broward County police have something better to do or is it so the airport makes those 20-50 deputies that milling around there every day, actually do some work?

There is plenty of crime in South Florida. Broward County police should have more important priorities, and I'm not talking the arrest of innocent people or the running down of pedestrians.
