New rules are being made at such an alarming rate as to almost be ridiculous. It used to be that the people turned to the Lord for protection. Now we look to the law. One act begets a new law which begets another act which begets another law and still we are not safe. How incredibly ironic that the act of one man, that simply wants to be with his girlfriend, can shut down an entire airport. The way things are going, it will not be long before people get the death penalty for an act of such stupidity - but in reality, how stupid is it to want to be with your girlfriend for as long as possible at the airport? It was not long ago that my loved ones could sit with me until it was time for my airplane to depart. The world as we know it is rapidly disintegrating. Not long ago there were pictures on the internet of people kissing each other through masks to somehow avoid getting the swine flu. Fear, fear, fear. It is time for the people to once again fear the Lord so that Satan can be held back from gaining ground at such an alarming rate.
[b]Man arrested after kiss sparked Newark airport scare[/b]
A man held for breaching security at Newark airport near New York, sparking the closure of a busy terminal, was kissing his girlfriend goodbye.
Haisong Jiang, 28, a Chinese-born student, was arrested late on Friday night and will be charged with defiant trespass, the Port Authority said.
He is due in court next week and could face a fine of up to $500 (£312).
Flights were grounded and passengers evacuated from the secure side of the terminal after the incident.
A surveillance video shows a man in a light-coloured jacket slipping underneath a security cordon at the airport, shortly after being told by an official to move away.
[b]'Not some prank'[/b]
After the security official steps away, a man believed to be Mr Jiang is seen ducking underneath the security cordon and kissing a woman in a long white coat, before walking away with her, arm-in-arm toward the boarding area.
According to Mr Jiang's flatmate, his girlfriend is a recent graduate from Rutgers university who lives in Los Angeles. She was visiting New York for the holidays, AP reported.
The incident took place just hours after tougher screening rules for air passengers were unveiled following the alleged Christmas Day bomb plot against a US plane.
Authorities had to scour the city to track down Mr Jiang, who is studying for a doctoral degree in molecular biosciences at Rutgers university, after he left the airport.
New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg expressed anger that he could only face a fine.
"It wasn't some prank that didn't do any harm - it did a lot of harm because it sent out an alert that people can get away with something like this," he said.
He said he had committed a "terrible injustice" to the thousands who had faced disrupted travel after flights were cancelled.
