>>> you don't need shoes to save the day. watch what happens when a homeless woman attacks a female tsa officer guarding a secure air at the honolulu international airport . as the agent struggles to stop the attacker from entering the checkpoint an off duty police officer jumps over the barrier and tackles the woman. that's corporal justin rogers from northern california , look, not even wearing shoes, he apparently had been in a nearby security screening line with his family when he spotted the struggle and leaped into action and the tsa as you mentioned is praising him because he did the right thing.

>> imagine what he could have done with shoes on.
