    By my count this makes 33 screeners on the wrong end of the law since December.

    This is a good thing.

    The perpetrators are being caught by investigations performed by local police. This means activities at the checkpoint are not immune from oversight by local authorities, and neither are TSA employees. This paves the way for eventual charges relating to scope n' grope.

    TSA perps are going to continue to embarrass the TSA, because the personality type that is attracted to the job is very likely to commit a wide variety of boundary violations. Some of this activity is criminal. I'm willing to bet they have a higher rate of domestic disturbances than the general population. Too bad those stats aren't available. Anyway, these incidents are inevitable. There's no way the TSA leadership can control their thugs. You can't control thugs, and you can't keep thugs from applying for TSA jobs in droves. A chance to commit boundary violations under the auspices of federal authority is irresistible to a thug. The TSA screener's job is a sociopath's wildest fantasy.

    I'm beyond feeling sorry for Pistole, but I recognize he's in a very bad spot.

    "The Transportation Security Administration has a zero tolerance for theft," said the TSA spokesperson.

    But, he added, we have no problem with a little sexual contact, if you know what I mean. ;)

    "The Transportation Security Administration has a zero tolerance for theft," said the TSA spokesperson. If you don't steal we don't need you!

    I'm glad that he's in a bad spot - people like him deserve it. I'm just sorry that it's someone like him in a spot that happens to grant so much power over people's experiences when travelling.

    I wish he was in a "spot" six feet underground, decaying, rotting, being eaten by worms....oh, sorry, I digress!;)
