    I hope he has fun in general population. I bet he will be real popular once they find out he's a former TSO.
    Paybacks are a beach.

    . . . Thompson targeted the 83-year-old Somali because the elderly man had a red beard, causing Thompson to believe the man was a Muslim and an African immigrant.
    . . .
    Thompson admitted he assaulted the man solely because he was Muslim and Somali. Thompson yelled during the assault that the victim should go back to Africa, the department said.

    No info whether this was work-related. Gives some idea of who might be squeezing your Charmin however.

    This same attitude is prevalent in all of the TSA, except the majority of TSA employees view everybody in this manner, not just people who are obviously Muslim and/or foreign, and take out their anger while on the job.
