    Left a comment. Why on earth would a person retract a written statement of assault? Should have called the police when asked to do so.

    Can't find it in Justia yet. If anyone gets ahold of the court documents, I'll post them here.

    As always, I don't have much to say at this point. I need to think about it and do more research. This is just an FYI.

    Yes, that's the article I linked to at TSA News.

    I hate defending the TSA, but this cover up is pretty typical. I once served at a command with a well known sleaze. He was a GySgt. He would sexually assault his victim, then harass her with false charges over silly, petty things. He openly bragged about the things he put his victims through, and a lot of the male officers and SNCOs really liked him and his disgusting stories. The chain of command always backed this man in his abuse of women, and they protected him from the consequences by intimidating his victims. I got the impression they got a vicarious thrill from his viciousness.

    There's probably nothing unusual about this situation. I don't think this type of cover-up is unusual at all.

    You might get away with it once or twice, but the signed statements leave a paper trail and eventually will become evidence themselves. In a civil suit, the burden of proof required is a mere "preponderance of the evidence", and a pile of these statements would probably weigh in rather heavily.

    Sounds like a perfect application for one of these.

    Now we await for the famous soundbites of 'no one did anything wrong, they all followed the proper procedures, the agency employees all perfectly perform all procedures the highest standards of the agency" and so forth.

    Seems like TSA officials spend a lot of time doing investigations in Hawaii. I don't recall a contingent going to NJ to investigate the same complaint there.

    Ironically, the same management staff that they will be working with to address the Mexican profiling complaint is being charged with sexual harassment in this case.

    Criminals policing criminals.
