    This report has the first part of Ms. Price's groping.

    Large Marge gets her butt in the way of the camera, conveniently obscuring everything on the crotch feel. The passenger does move away at one point of the crotch feel, almost wincing. Large Marge does use the front of her hands quite energetically on the passengers breasts, if you could call anything this clerk does "energetic". Almost looks like she's slapping at them.

    Also, looks like a fair amount of this video is missing. way too choppy.

    Also, consider that someone as physically un-dexterous as large marge here is completely the wrong choice for delicate operations in small areas, such as the body feel overs of private areas. That is just guaranteeing the abuse of anyone she feels up. She should have been restricted to less demanding works, perhaps like making sure the machines stay plugged in.

    I'm not sure she can see the floor well enough for that.

    Not dancing around it at all, merely pointing out that the charge levied is not because of resisting a TSO, because TSOs do not have arrest powers. We are technically listed as Officers, it does not give us more authority, it does not give us arrest powers, it is the title that has been given to us by TSA.

    Also, it is not sewn on the shirts, it is on the nametags. The only thing sewn on the shirts in this version of the uniform is the shoulder patches.

    This was also a charge levied by someone else (local LEO) since we do not have arrest powers. The veracity of the charges is something that will be determined in court - some of these charges are crap charges (check out some of the LEO threads here for examples), some of them are actually correctly applied. If she left after being informed of the charges, or attempted to leave after being informed of the charges, then regardless of the outcome in court, the charge was correctly applied. This may be thrown out, she may get convicted on it, I won't know until the end of the court case.

    High churn must have been costing a fortune if the names were ever sewn onto the shirts.

    Everything attached to the shirt in a permanent/semi permanent fashion adds to the cost. I think that was one of the reasons (not the primary or even a real compelling reason, just one of the reasons) they went to just the patches on the shoulders. The old unis had the embroidered badge, the TSA across the back, and the patches, that adds up quite quickly when you are talking about 45k employees with an average of about 5 unis each in their first year. Even if you add in the name tags and badges we have now, it would be a fairly significant savings in embroidery costs after just one year.

    Agreed. Which is one of the many reasons that putting a bunch of untrainable monkeys (and perfectly trainable thugs, thieves, pedophiles, rapists, and other assorted perverts) into expensive uniforms was a truly stupid move.

    Of course, without the cop costume it'd be more difficult for the TSA's thugs to exert their "authoritah."
