Jeno Mouton was allowed to work several more shifts before being put on leave and then charged with making a terroristic threat.

    A Grand Jury no billed Mouton for lack of evidence. Now, he says he's trying to build back his reputation.

    "No billed ... for lack of evidence" doesn't mean "cleared", only that the case will not move forward because the grand jury felt that the charge could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.

    How many people have been harassed, even arrested for using the word "bomb" in airport or saying other dumb things? Frankly I find it rather amusing that a ten-year TSA employee got caught up in their own stupidity.
