    "A lot of unfocused standing around?" No :trash:, Jose!

    Star Ledger: TSA observers note violations, even trivial, by Newark airport screeners

    Some of the so-called violations seemed downright trivial: a Newark airport screener wearing Nike sneakers on the job; other screeners chewing gum while monitoring passengers.

    But others were not so amusing: screeners having personal chats while they were supposed to be screening passengers; a document checker who failed to look at a passenger’s travel documents and a lot of unfocused standing around.

    The violations of standard operating procedures set for the Transportation Security Administration employees were recorded by undercover observers at Newark Liberty International Airport in June.

    not sure I object to improper "pat downs" per se. depends on which type:
    1. rubdown deliberately avoids sex organs and obscene butt rubbing = good
    2. rubdown that involves any contact with sex organs and excessive butt contact = bad.

    Has TSA taken a public suggestion (Trollkiller?) and placed some secret shoppers on the payroll?

    I fear that the "improper" part was avoiding genital/butt rubbing.
