    Retards are smarter than TSA screeners.

    For this we pay, while millions of honest Americans seek honest work, (and that rules out the TSA).

    Gothamist: TSA Agent Confuses Pepper Spray With Laser Pointer, With Comic Results

    Our latest installment in the popular "TSA Follies" security theater series comes to us from JFK Airport, where a TSA agent foolishly discharged pepper spray that was discovered at a checkpoint. A Port Authority source tells the Post the agent, one Chris Yves "Barney Fife" Dabel, was “playing around” with the pepper spray after finding it on the floor. In his defense, there's nothing like a thrilling game of Pepper Spray Roulette to alleviate the crushing boredom of working at a TSA checkpoint!

    Dabel was trying to determine if it was real, according to the Port Authority source, who adds that Dabel "thought it was a laser pointer." To test his hypothesis ...

    Stay tuned, there a post coming that should be a real (pardon the pun) spray of gas! :D

    Well, the TSA certainly loves to hire the learning-disabled, that's for sure.

    They've done this before, y'know.
  8. A little googling uncovers that Christ-Yves Dabel is, according to his (?) resume, a Behavior Detection Officer and "Master Transportation Security Officer" with aspirations of grandeur:

    Behavior Detection Officer, Detect Thyself!

    Impaired, morally-disabled more like it.
    Is this a real quote from the Gothamist, or just a great parody?:

    There's our second clue that he's an unemployable wank. The first is that he's working for the TSA in the first place.

    "Behavioral Detection" seems to be the pigeonhole wherein the TSA stuffs all of the personnel whose sole skill lies in brown-nosing their "management" into a position where they don't actually have any metrics.

    This f*ckt*rd with a Master of Science in Protection Management is so fr*gg*ing inept that he pepper sprays himself and five co-workers. This is our front line in the War on Terror????????????????????????????

    Somebody please help me up off the floor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Also notice that even with his vaunted degree from a criminal justice college, he took a year off to go be a home health aid of some sort, and that didn't work out.

    It also occurs to me -- how does a whole group of TSA employees not know the difference between a laser pointer and a canister of pepper spray? The two things are nothing alike. How can we feel safe if they can't even properly identify a prohibited weapon?

    Speaks volumes of the quality of "education" at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, doesn't it?

    Stupidity notwithstanding, even if it had been a laser pointer, why was he pointing it at people. Elsewhere in the news very recently, some TSA-quality material in California got 30 months in prison for aiming a laser pointer at planes and temporarily blinding a pilot.

    Whether it was pepper spray or really a laser pointer, the behavior was simply irresponsible.

    "Responsibility" is a foreign concept to the TSA and its lackwit employees. Look at the excuses coming from the twice-fired-and-rehired-again idiot in Hawaii. "It's not my fault that the employees I managed weren't doing their jobs," or the continuing excuses by certain TSA employees of, "I know our processes and procedures suck, but I do them anyway because that's what I do."

    TSA clerks are trained to identify things that go boom along with other harmful items and this twit thinks a container of Mace is a laser pointer.

    So what are the chances this TSA Twit, or any others, can actually identify real threats? We know they have breast milk and other every day things that are harmless on the Oh No's list. Doesn't this incident validate what we and others like us are saying about TSA?

    Rugape, you're a BDO. Is this as good as it gets for you TSA types?

    edit to add: Wouldn't spraying others with Mace be an assualt? Seems this TSA twit should be brought up on charges.

    Ah, yes, the Brain Trust in Blue, as our writer Deborah Newell Tornello calls them — every time you think they’ve topped themselves, they prove you wrong.​
    In the lastest episode of The Adventures of Darwin Award Candidates, a TSA agent at JFK (source of so many shenanigans) was “playing around” with a canister of pepper spray he found on the floor. Oops!​
    An airport security worker who discovered a container of pepper spray at JFK sprayed five of his colleagues with the chemical as he was ‘playing around’ with the canister.​
    All six TSA screeners were taken to hospital, and security checks at JFK were said to have been held up for at least 15 minutes following the incident in Terminal 2.​
    Chris Yves Dabel is said to have told Port Authority officials he discovered the canister on the floor at a security checkpoint, and and ‘thought it was a laser pointer’.​
    That’s right, the brilliant “security” soldiers On The Front Lines In The War On Terrorismthought a canister of pepper spray was a laser pointer. And these are the people who are supposed to be able to tell the difference between an insulin pump, a purse, a belt buckle, or a breast prosthesis, and a bomb.​
    The Gothamist also has a report on this latest escapade. And wait’ll you read the CYA statement by the TSA brass.​
    Oh, those wacky TSA agents — ya just can’t keep ‘em down!​

    Unfortunately, the relief provided by this incident was only temporary. For lasting results, I'd recommend the clown try removing the pin from a live hand grenade.

    Might be more effective to bake the grenade into a cupcake and put a cherry on the pin. ;) TSA employees LOVE those cupcakes.
