I worked as a TSO at PVD Rhode Island for 8.5 years. My grossly sexually harassing female supervisor gave me a an unflattering annual review in 2010 because I kept "turning my mouth away" when she went to kiss me on our nightly walks out to the parking lot so I ratted her out to the Admins.

The consequences of this came when I was investigated 2 months later for purportedly posting SSI here on Fark describing the new pat-down procedures that involved the sliding hand technique back in Nov. of 2010. They called me in on Feb. 6th 2011 and threatened to arrest me if I didn't resign. I had no chance of having representation it being Super Bowl Sunday and so I found a lawyer after my 'Constructive Discharge' I think what really pissed them off was the recitation of being a 'TSA Ossifer', I swear.

I had to appeal the initial charge because my atty thought it best to go the sexual harassment path rather than whistleblowers and he didn't file in a timely fashion so I'm kinda SOL presently.

Wish I could say there was a happy ending and these assholes got their comeuppance but it doesn't look likely.

You mean when the TSA was created in a knee-jerk fashion under Bush?

When it comes to getting word out about what a colossal bag of sphincters the TSA is, I'm okay with a repeat.

hasty ambush: Don't Troll Me Bro!: hasty ambush: I thought making them government employees was supposed to make them better employees?

They must've unionized. That makes them worse than Hitler. At least that's what Gov. Walker and the WI GOP told me.

Can you point out how it has made them better?

Government employee unions (which should be illegal) do not exist to make things better for the taxpayers but for the union members which are often have competing interests-ie public schools and teacher accountability.

Government employee unions are not fighting "evil" corporations they are fighting us-the tax payers.


Christ, dude. It was a joke. Chill.

And yes, I could bring the argument you're asking for. The problem is that after having this discussion a hundred times over the last 21 months I've realized it doesn't matter what I say. You've obviously made up your mind and nothing will change it. For fark's sake, my uncle's wife (a retired teacher, as was her sister and her father) walked out on him after about 6 months of him badmouthing public unions, hence her family and most of her lifelong friends. Christ, a public-sector union employee bore his son and he let Gov farkhead's rhetoric overrule his own life's experience with her. So I'm sorry, I'm not having this argument anymore because there's no farking point.

The TSA ws created for two reasons:

(1) To artificially inflate employment numbers

(2) As a giant practical joke on the middle class. Oh Bush, you jokester

Not only are they lazy and corrupt, but they're downright stupid. I was on a camping trip in Hawaii when a friend had their propane stove -without the bottle- confederated because it "once had flammable material in it." I explained that it was nothing more than a tube with an open valve, but they said "it might still contain residue." I then tried to explain that it's only a liquid when compressed, and any "residue" in an open system would be in the parts per a billion. The idiot still didn't comprehend what this meant, so i told them they should be more concerned with people being able to light a fart on fire. They still stood blindly by their decision, and we gave up because we were about to miss our flight. (which was a whole 40 minutes to the next island.) I really wish that positions of power required a basic reasoning / comprehension test of some sort, just to make sure they aren't completely dead from the neck up.

Arctic Phoenix: I'm sure the private security officers work SO much harder.

/end sarcasm
//TSA = Thousand Standing Around


I spent over ten years as a rentacop. Some of them were very fine officers indeed, much better than cops; but overall I have to say that when you hire private security, you get what you pay for: untrained dregs from the bottom of the barrel, wannabe cops, guys who couldn't make the police academy, military washouts and pretend Marines, and ex-felons. And just because you have them all sign papers making them "Federal" employees doesn't change any of that.

The farkers in Syracuse stole my Ninkasi Brewery campaign buttons off of my backpack on my way back to Eugene.

I'd flown 3 times with them on my carry-on with no incident, they didn't even stop me. They stole them.
