    No surprises here. You would expect this sort of thing from an Agency as morally bankrupt as the TSA. Whistleblower abuse is par for the course among their kind.

    Any TSA employee who wants to claim "hostile work environment" has no sympathy from me. If you're willing to put on the uniform and touch people inappropriately, you deserve more than "hostility."

    I think TSA checkpoints are hostile environments but hostile to travelers not TSA employees.

    My experience at DFW that was never properly investigated by TSA where LTSO Gerard angrily got in my face after pointing out to him that my name was on my ID was certainly hostile and threatening. Did TSA do anything to investigate or correct the problem.

    NOT ONE FRICKEN THING!!!

    If the TSA weenies want to whine I'll stand on the side and ask them how it feels.

    It demonstrates what many here have said, TSA has developed a culture of abuse and hostility that has infested the management of the agency.

    TSA's abusive attitude toward passengers permeates the agency and results in supervisors abusing those below them. Nothing will improve until there is forced organizational change purging TSA of this cadre of misfits.

    If they got rid of every idiot, moron, thug, thief, or rapist, there wouldn't be any TSA employees left.

    from the news story, a tsa worker complaining about being harassed (by pax evidently)
    heck if y'all would just jump into the river, that would help. Our nightmare would go away.

    I believe that the usage here should be "Heck, if all y'all would just jump into the river..." when referring to a group like the TSA.

    I made mention of this in a post I submitted to the TSA Blog. In typical Stasi fashion Blogdad Bob censored my comment. The body of my comment was on topic and complied with all of the TSA posting guidelines which I believe are a violation of the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights.

    Bloghdad Bob is an (expletive deleted). He and his cohorts censor comments left and right. That's why I stopped trying to post there months ago. I don't know how other people get through, all the many critical comments by this and that "Anonymous."

    I would say that Blogdad Bob has no scruples. I cannot understand how he faces his family after some of the stuff he has posted.

    Almost suggests that TSA has something on him.

    He does seem to fit in with the typical TSA employee so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

    Oh, facing one's family is nothing. Nothing. The history of torture shows this. Torturers routinely go back to the bosom of their family, dandling their children on their knees, cooing and cuddling. This is routine. And what Bloghdad Bob does is, obviously, way less than torture. He defends the indefensible but he doesn't, so far, at least, perpetrate it himself.

    Having an interest in issues of social justice all my life, I've done a lot of research on torture. Contrary to what people believe -- and want to believe -- it's relatively easy to turn someone into a torturer. That's why what the TSA is doing is not only horrible, but fraught with other meanings.

    I have little use for a professional liar and I believe that defines Blogdad Bob.

    I would suggest you save screen prints, and when you have had a post censored that was truly level-headed & compliant with their purported standards, send it with a letter of complaint to the DHS inspector general -- remind them that propaganda outlets are not acceptable in American government.

    If you have lots of time on your hands, it might not also hurt to copy the oversight committees in the House & Senate.

    My time is not as free as it may seem. I have communicated with OIG over the censorhip practice of the TSA Blog and they said I was wrong.

    So the OIG thinks the Goebbels approach is just fine.

    SideWiki would have been a great way to fight back. Unfortunately, Google discontinued it 9 days ago, had a longer note written suggesting we try SideWiki & found out when I went to get the link :(

    ...and still another:

    http://www.wbtv.com/story/16339580/...ge-not-properly-screened-at-charlotte-airport

    Only this one seems largely for show.

    The TSA is desperate to be seen as "doing something."
