Ten random things: September 5

Ten criminal offenses that, if convicted or found not guilty by reason of insanity of, will prevent you from being granted Security Identification Display Area access by the Transportation Security Administration:

  1. Certain crimes aboard aircraft in flight, 49 U.S.C. 46506
  2. Destruction of an aircraft or aircraft facility, 18 U.S.C. 32
  3. Treason
  4. Felony arson
  5. Interference with air navigation, 49 U.S.C. 46308
  6. Conveying false information and threats, 49 U.S.C. 46507
  7. Assault with intent to murder
  8. Unlawful possession, use, sale, distribution, or manufacture of an explosive or weapon
  9. Felony involving possession or distribution of stolen property
  10. Aircraft piracy, 49 U.S.C. 46502

That first one is a little vague, isn't it? Perhaps this will clear things up:

An individual on an aircraft in the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States who commits an act that - (1) if committed in the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States (as defined in section 7 of title 18) would violate section 113, 114, 661, 662, 1111, 1112, 1113, or 2111 or chapter 109A of title 18, shall be fined under title 18, imprisoned under that section or chapter, or both; or (2) if committed in the District of Columbia would violate section 9 of the Act of July 29, 1892 (D.C. Code Sec. 22-1112), shall be fined under title 18, imprisoned under section 9 of the Act, or both.

Or perhaps not.
