BizarreMan: 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.

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?

I'm anxious about traveling with my toddler through airport security.  I had a dream where the security person was trying to coax him through the detector by himself and he didn't understand so he started to cry.  The security person got frustrated and tried to walk him through, but the kid lost his shiat because a stranger was  trying to take him somewhere and so the security agent did wind up trying to take him somewhere because the kid was uncooperative and losing his shiat.  Then I start losing my shiat because this agent is taking my kid somewhere.  I plead with the TSA guy to just bring him back and let me help him through the detectors and other passengers to stop the agent and finally completely lose my shiat. I burst through the line, run to grab the guy holding my screaming kid, grab my kid, and then knock the guy to the ground, stomping on his face until the real police show up to arrest mommy.  My kid is saying "Mom hurt asshole" the entire time.

It's not right to harbor such subconscious anger about people I don't know personally.  However, even though I'm fairly easy going and polite, I have just had shiatty encounters with enough TSA agents to poison my dreams.  Their customer service needs some work even if the entirety of their staff is conviction free.

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

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!)

Valid point, but I think the key takeaway here is that TSA management is so corrupt that sexual abuse/harassment cases that would get dealt with in seconds at any real job are allowed to continue to the point of violence with the TSA. Then instead of arresting the harassers, the victim gets punished.

To the complying sheep who have no problems.

The TSA set up costs taxpayers $8-10 billion a year. It gives nothing in return to the economy. It is a total resource suck at that amount.

As someone pointed out, the agents are not professionals. They are low IQ Walmart workers there to make sure the sheep follow the rules.

To top it off, you have an NSA apparatus that is sucking resources right out of your pocket to collect information on you.

We are going down a very bad path with all this crap. We have gone from "Nothing to fear, but fear itself." to "Be afraid, be very afraid." - pay your  taxes so we can spy on you.

When travelling for work, I usually attract extra TSA attention since I carry two laptops and a variety of tools. Screw drivers under 7 inches, pliers and wire cutters are allowed in carry-ons, but 4oz of toothpaste isn't allowed.

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.
