While that is an excellent collection of crime and villiany, I don't think that the TSA needs to be blamed for the actions that took place away from the airport and while not in uniform.

They absolutely take blame for hiring these types of people in the first place. The TSA is an unmitigated disaster and I have to deal with these bottom feeding morons on an almost daily basis. The only professional TSA agents I've encountered in over 2 million miles since they were instated has been in Puerto Rico. The only thing that keeps me sane at this point is the TSA precheck which I get about 90% of the time.

They do nothing, have prevented nothing, and are a huge pointless burden on tax payers.

You'd have thought they would do a better job of background checks, but I guess you can't pre-screen them all.

I skimmed it. Probably is well done and may be useful. There is no way she would have had any part of it prior to Jan 20th 2009, though. It's another attempt to create a scandal in the Obama administration when the real scandal is that the TSA still exists despite its enormous cost in time and money and the fact that it hasn't stopped even a single act of terrorism, as far as I know.

Top 50 "Most Dangerous" title sounds pretty damn scary, even though the only prevailing danger is theft (15 instances) and that they've hired some perverts as screeners.  And then a list of off-duty offenses that are no doubt pretty common in the LEO set.

15 thefts in 10 years?  I would have thought there'd be more.  I'm not happy with 15, don't get me wrong!

Also, did the white, GOP, southern Congressman HAVE TO choose an image of a sleeping, black TSO as the lead-in to her tirade?  I mean, yeah, it happened, but in a report about criminals why start off with that?
 
2013-06-27 04:33:18 PM
Maybe I'm lucky or I don't fly very often (maybe 3 times a year) but I've never, NEVER, since 2001 or before, ever had a problem with a TSA agent.

Yeah, and it isn't hard to find 50 assholes like those guys out of any group the size of the TSA. But if you guys think increasing the TSA budget so they can do better background checks would stop it, well, sure, we can try.

The real 50 most dangerous TSA officers are still out there.

Just took a trip to SFO - the screeners on either end seemed slightly cheesed that I opted for the hand-pat (the return flight, they made me wait well apart from my luggage for almost 20 minutes. I was convinced my phone/wallet would be stolen; happily they weren't), but both were good-natured about it.

I got them both to laugh, too.

I get the pat down too and usually I give them a heads-up early on in the line and give them the "aw shucks" routine and all is good. Maybe it helps to treat people like... people. I dunno.

They aren't people, Coco. They are tools. Not to wax too melodramatic about it, but they are tools of totalitarianism.

Fu*k every single one of them.

One thing I thought was interesting when reading the article was that one guy ended up in a fight with another agent because the nude-o-scan showed the size of one of their genitals.

I thought those devices didn't show that much detail?

When your national security policy is basically a make work scheme for the unemployable, there are bound to be problems.

ROLANDO NEGRIN
Airport: Miami International
Position: Transportation Security Officer
Crime: Assault
Date: May 7, 2010
"A Transportation Security Administration screener at Miami International Airport was arrested this 
week for allegedly beating up a co-worker after months of jokes about the size of the screener's 
genitalia that colleagues observed during training with full-body scanning machines. 
The agency has suspended Rolando Negrin, 44, after his arrest Tuesday night after beating a 
co-worker who had made the jokes. The AP reported that Negrin reportedly told police he "could 
not take the jokes anymore and lost his mind."



Anyone think it's ironic that a TSA agent was humiliated and felt personally violated after being forced to go through a full body scanner?

(Also, if you're embarrassed by your co-workers finding out you have a tiny dick the best thing to do is attack them so that your tiny dick becomes part of written court transcripts and is referenced in federal documents.  Good plan!)

Same here.

I also read the directions and follow them. My last flight involved a moran who refused to remove his laptop from his bag; that his bag was the special exception kind. There is such a kind, the tsa explained his wasn't it, and further refusal involved him getting escorted away.

Is it security theater? Sure. But it is pretty damn easy to get through with a minimum of trouble.

You mean out of 55,000 employees some my get in trouble? The US with an incarceration rate of 700+ per 100,000 people this 50 or so supposed bad apples is about right for the general population.

Remember background checks are not to protect you they are to insure that the Security/Military industrial complex create an artificial barrier to employment within their industry to boost the individual pay of those already employed within the industry.

Also, did you notice that some of the mug shots showed the screeners in their TSA uniform?

Funny how the report showed a screener arrested for bringing a gun to work.

Yet, Denver TSA Screener Alvin Crabtree did the same thing and was not arrested.   Heck, he still has his job.

Nonsense.  It is a complete reflection on the quality of people they not only hire but tolerate.

Your attitude is well he his a good (insert political office here) so his tax evasion or running a gay underage prostitution ring out of his basement really does not matter.

In this case now EVERYONE knows his little (heh) secret.  Strangers.  Coworkers.  Family. Neighbours.  Pets.

(personally, if i worked for a big bureaucratic monster like tsa and i had a coworker calling me "pencil dick" i'd document it once, twice and on the third time i'd start the mega-lawsuits which would be settled out of court for mid six figure payouts plus a garnishing of the coworker's wages for the rest of his life.  quit tsa. maybe use some of the money to get surgery to fatten up my sausage.)

How do the numbers stack compared to when screeners weren't TSA but private contractors brought in by the airports pre-9-11?  How does it compare to other agencies with a security role similar to TSA?

In regards to the sex crimes or the criminal stuff done off-hours, doesn't TSA already conduct a background check and not hire those with a criminal background?  If not, that's obviously a big problem and a black mark against TSA.  But if they do already check and refuse to hire those with a criminal past, then the fact that they have some employees who end up committing crimes off-hours is really NOT TSA's fault.

I think this report really doesn't answer a lot of questions about TSA.  Everybody is quick to hate on TSA on Fark, but this report is hardly damning of the agency as a whole.

Obese, mouth-breathing, WalMart and fast-food rejects should not be pre-qualifications for security positions.

Interestingly before 9/11 the destination of people quitting the out-sourced airport security orgs *was* into fast-food.
