Hopeless romantic Chinese Ph.D candidate arrested

He did it for love and he is a model employee with his employer The Rutgers University according to his friends and colleagues

And the TSA security officer that should have been stationed where the 'trespass' occurred is on administrative leave. So why aren't the security guard and his supervisor being charged with negligence for leaving a gaping security hole and causing this whole mess?

It is an equal embarrassment for TSA , not an embarrassment for the lover man who was only too stupid to know better not to let love blind him

Isn't US Justice system badly need an overhaul?


The Chinese graduate student who snuck through a Newark Airport checkpoint to steal a kiss from his girlfriend - sparking a massive security scare - was described Saturday as a hopeless romantic.

Pals were shocked to discover Haisong Jiang, 28, was responsible for shutting down Terminal C for seven hours, causing more than 100 flight delays and stranding thousands of passengers last Sunday.

Outside his home in Piscataway, N.J., they insisted the quiet scholar could not have meant any harm and is just a guy with a big heart smitten with the love of his life.

"This man is very romantic. He's a very good man," said Andy Rui, 28, one of Jiang's best friends.

"He just wanted to say goodbye to his girlfriend, I don't think he realized what he [was] doing," said another pal, Ning Huang, 33, who plays soccer with Jiang.

Jiang, a bio-medical research student at Rutgers University, was arrested Friday after cops identified him as the man who illegally passed through a security checkpoint into a secure area so he could prolong his farewell to his girlfriend.

TSA guard Ruben Hernandez had temporarily left his post unguarded, highlighting porous security at the airport despite recent terror alerts.

Jiang, who came to the U.S. in 2004 from Jiangxi province in China, is charged with defiant trespass, which carries up to 30 days in jail.

He was released from custody and will be arraigned this week. He did not return home after his highly publicized arrest.

Friends said he and his girlfriend have been carrying on a bicoastal relationship for a year. She was returning to Los Angeles after spending Christmas with him.

"He was totally excited, even before his girlfriend visited," said one of his roommates, who only gave his first name, Hui.

"He was very excited to find a real good woman."

Grace Chen, who went to college with Jiang in Shanghai, pronounced him "in love."

"It's wrong for him to cross that line but I just think he didn't think too much before he did that," Chen said. "They have a long-distance relationship and she's going back to California so it was probably just his first response."

Punishment does not fit the crime!

And what is his crime, really? And who will be the true victims when such crime is being punished without the set value of common sense?

On the other END of the spectrum, I have this classified internal exchange to share with you.

Meanwhile, New Yorkers chickened out from holding a trial for criminal mastermind according to NPR latest News coverage. Are they wankers or what? They are Cows for not supporting Eric Holder's war to restore American Justice.

What's more, there is no tears from the widow of Islam. "I am proud of him. My husband has carried out a great operation in such a war. May God accept his martyrdom."

Who is going to win in the END? Not Ahmed Chalabi , I hope? And how many enemies do you need? Kurons, The future of this country is in your hands, in your mouths and in your hearts. Be united and fight for your honor, your love and your holy spirit on your homeland and on your internet domains. I have great hope for this land of opportunities, full of rich commentaries made right after Jane Mayer and Terry Gross's quiet conversations.

So concoct your best defense for each and for all.

God bless America, my friend.

A poem for Ruben Hernandez, TSA security guard (3.00 / 3) (#6)
by BottleRocket on Wed Feb 10, 2010 at 01:18:51 PM EST

See now this combatant, this defeated warrior
Lost within the many chambers of the human heart
Bitten. Captured in Love's pernicious snare,
What guise would Terror not deign to wear?
And here, in the lapse of vigilance
Some momentary call, alas
Portends this most cunning ruse of all
Guided toward Love's kiss, a klaxon kiss,
Which Terror's ruse conspired to mark its own
To bring down boy, and guard, and throne.

It's like the other one says it's like your fire truck had a flat tire and nobody took notice until the fire alarm started ringing... I agree someone has to be responsible for your loss but not this stupid Chinese dude.

Could he be civilly liable to the airlines? (none / 0) (#16)
by Michael David Crawford on Thu Feb 11, 2010 at 11:16:19 AM EST

If they had to cancel a hundred flights, then later get all those passengers to their destinations on other flights, then all the airlines put together would have spent millions of dollars that they otherwise would not have.

any non-functioning equipment or processes are complicit, but those alone could not have caused the flight delays and such.

YES THIS MEANS YOU

I had had incurable open sores all over my feet for sixteen years. The doctors were powerless to do anything about it. I told my psychiatrist that they were psychosomatic Stigmata - the Stigmata are the wounds Jesus suffered when he was nailed to the cross. Three days later all my sores were gone. -- Michael Crawford

No-one can transcend the prison of lies
No-one knows who is a corpse

Everywhere is a foreign land
Death gives no refuge.

We are so much alike. Two poisonous snakes betraying each others' treasure.

Support Senator Jim Webb's attempt to do exactly that.  On another note, your title should read "hopelessly romantic PhD student..."  In your title the noun is student, not romantic.
