    One would think that if the SPOTniks can find a terrorist in less than a minute of conversation, they should be able to find (expletive deleted) like this after one shift of screening.

    I guess the (expletive deleted) employed by the TSA dislike pointing out their fellow (expletive deleted).

    By my count, we're up to 11 sex crimes since December and 62 screeners arrested in all. I have been predicting a total of 70 by years' end since March and they remain on pace to hit their goal.

    This story should really throw a damper on TSA's recent propaganda effort. I've been posting this on any and every TSA story I find. This should be good comment material through the TG travel season.

    Your stats would make a pretty powerful letter to the editor or an op ed if we can get it placed. We should all check our rolodexes (rolodexen? ;) ) - the physical or digital variety. I didn't realize the numbers were so high. :(

    I posted the sex crimes portion along with some commentary at Stop TSA Scanners which should get it a few hits. If anyone has a suggestion for a LTTE venue I'll give it a try.

    Yeah, but I'm a privacy advocate - it's tough sometimes. There are so many things I just don't do: I don't have a facebook account, I don't use google+, I don't have a gmail account, I don't use loyalty cards of any kind. And let's just say that you probably don't want to go shopping with me either because there are always discussions to be had about phone numbers and zip codes. :) On the plus side, I'm always polite when I explain to people why I'm not giving them any of my personal information.

    They're not that ambitious. He was probably just doing a homework assignment for his A.A. in Homeland Security.

    This is so true. So very, very true.

    If you convince people that it's okay to be molested in airports, you've got the whole fourth amendment thing neatly and quickly disposed of, but I hadn't even thought about what it's doing to the little minds of the average TSA worker. What *is* the difference between feeling up someone at work and feeling up someone in a parking lot? Apparently not a lot if your IQ is in the double-digit range.

    Alas, this is true of all sorts of people in power. Don't want to go off on a tangent here, but look at all the crimes committed by people in positions of great power, from cops in uniform to corporate boardroom execs. It's a story as old as time. Throw in the dynamic of sex and it gets even worse.

    There's something different about crimes committed by cops and boardroom execs. There is a base level of professionalism with those folks - it may be low in some cases, but it's there nonetheless. And, cops are taught about the constitution. At some level these people know that the laws apply to them. Even scum of the earth types like Madoff knew that the laws applied to him. With the TSA, there is no base level. No one there thinks the laws apply to them. They are literally being paid to molest people, to harass people, to steal, to lie - and there are almost no consequences. It's no wonder they take this attitude with them off the job.

    We are seeing this attitude spread. Look at UC Davis -- there were a grand total of 11, yes 11, students sitting down on a sidewalk. This required the use of chemical agents upon them, again, the hyped up talk about security and authority leads to this sort of thing.

    It's interesting that the only TSA termination we've seen recently was because the TSA employee didn't follow orders to remove a "collage" from the workplace.

    So... groping passengers, yelling orders at children, threatening people with "Do you want to fly today?" - that's all acceptable behavior. But heavens forfend that one of Pistole's Perverts actually talk back to a stuporvisor...

    Eh. I don't see how a "base level of professionalism" makes any difference in the commission of a crime. People in power take advantage of those without power. If anything, somebody's so-called professionalism makes it worse.

    This is the standard DHS statement. Those morons simply copy & paste to all news releases.

    Some original thinking from TSA would be refreshing. Of course that would require having Nappy approve any new statements.

    "Original thinking" is something TSA employees do all the time: making up lies about which IDs are acceptable, or what the TSA website says.

    "Constructive thinking" is apparently grounds for termination by the TSA.

    So will TSA make this person a TSA Trainer?
