    Every day, in every way, screeners just prove themselves to be nothing but scum.

    I find nothing unusal in this story just TSA employees meeting my expectations.

    ...beginning with their willingness to put on the fake cop uniform and grope US citizens for a paycheck while lying about their motivations in doing so. Anything after that is just gravy anyway.
  6. From the story:

    What's a "desk-appearance ticket"? Doesn't sound very threatening. I'll bet she's back on the job by now.

    Probably like a traffic ticket with a court date written on the ticket instead of being taken to jail and having to bond out.

    Just what we need is another TSA employee who seems ready, willing, and able to abuse travelers.

    What was that other post about TSA requiring their screeners to conduct themselves in some-shuch manner in and out of uniform and all that nonsense?

    Well, at least as much as she was "on the job" before.
  10. Yeah, not like Andrea Abbott's grand jury indictment, for what sounds like a similar, but far less "disorderly" incident. And I mean that based on what Andrea's (expletive deleted) arresting cop said, not on the contradicting video evidence.

    :mad: This is probably, unfortunately, true. I so wish that this had been a bookable offence where she would have been frisked by an LEO, taken into custody, handcuffed, perp walked out of the airport, stuffed into the back seat of a squad car for a ride to the jailhouse, and booked along with the requisite fingerprinting and strip/cavity search that she so undoubtedly deserves!

    It was an assault and I think the TSA employee should have been arrested, booked, and treated like anyone else. You know damn well had it been a traveler that threw hot coffee on a TSA employee someone would have been going to jail.

    Bzzzt! I'm sorry, that's not correct. But we have some lovely parting gifts at the top of the jetway, please exit through the 1L door. :p

    Desk Appearance Tickets (also known as "Arrest and release on summons") is at the discretion of the officer. Anything you can get a DAT for, the alternative is actual arrest and incarceration to await a bail hearing. In my town, most of the time you will actually get handcuffs and a ride, get processed as if you were going to jail, then released with a DAT.

    Don't forge the added bonus of a strip-search, now that the Supreme Court has given that its imprimatur.

    An American Airlines Pilot, Mr. Trivett, of Butler, Tenn., told screeners they should "conduct themselves more professionally in uniform and not use profanity or the N-word. This apparently prompted a tantrum on the part of one of the screeners, who was subsequently arrested for launching the hot coffee at the pilot.

    Incidents of TSA screeners committing freelance assaults and thefts would decline if screeners' duties did not include crimes, nececcitating that the TSA hire criminals to perform these reprehensible acts. Criminals are notorious for their inability to turn their vocation on and off at will. TSA thugs are going to keep on embarrassing this once great nation until TSA screeners' responsibilities no longer include crimes.
