He's a TSA employee.

But he got the shaft and was fired for incorrect reasons.

But he's grossly overpaid and the back pay award was excessive.

But TSA management learned a lesson the only way they understand--financially.

I'm so conflicted, how am I supposed to feel about this story?

Whoa, $89k a year?! I would take that for limited responsibility and "managing" a bunch of glorified mall cops.

My TSA csb - last year, flying out of Orlando after a work trip, I got in the hour long line of post Disney visiting families. I went through the metal detector and all of the sudden a half dozen guards ran over and started saying something about my shoes (on the conveyer detector). Turns out I had left the Nike running chip inside my insole and they thought it was a bomb...or something. They let me off with a stern warning, but they made it seem like I was about to start an international incident.

A Shambling Mound: Raymond Ware, who was let go along with 35 other TSA employees in 2011 after an investigation revealed that for several months, some officers failed to hand-screen checked baggage for explosives at Honolulu International Airport.

As a manager, Ware was in charge of nine separate areas on two levels of HNL's international terminal, including the lobby where the improper screening happened.
"I look forward to returning and doing what I love to do, which is to protect the flying public," Ware said.

His argument boils down to saying that he never saw anyone not do their job, therefore it is not his fault that a large number of his employees were not doing their job.

This guy managed to get his job back via the court system after being fired TWICE and seems to think that his responsibility extends only to what he can see with his own eyes. He'll go far in government service.

Hey hey hey.  Hang on just a minute there.

"I was charged with being negligent and careless and the judge found that I was neither," said Raymond Ware

Now you may have higher standards for managers but "Not quite bad enough to be found criminally negligent" is good enough for me.

An administrative judge with the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board ruled earlier this month Ware should be reinstated to his $89,000-a-year job.
