Once again, one apple spoils the entire TSA Crop – this time with a fake drugs incident at Philadelphia International.
A TSA agent decided to play a joke on a passenger on a Rebecca Solomon as she was travelling back to college
After pulling her laptop out, through the scanning machines, and walking through a detector, she went to collect her things and a TSA agent motioned her toward him, where a small, clear plastic bag from her carry-on. Inside the bag was fine, white powder – which is the sort of power that drugs could be in for example.
The TSA agent seems to be their usual caring self, saying
Answer truthfully, the TSA worker informed her, and everything will be OK.
Of course, this complete axehole of a TSA agent started to smile and said
Just kidding, he said
He waved the baggie. It was his.
I’m sorry. COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE. Security Theater is a Joke as it is. Adding this little twerp into the mix with this action is UNACCEPTABLE.
Security was called and the incident reported
In the first instance, the TSA knew nothing. Shortly after the first inital statement was released.
“The TSA views this employee’s behavior to be highly inappropriate and unprofessional,” she wrote. “We can assure travelers this employee has been disciplined by TSA management at Philadelphia International Airport, and he has expressed remorse for his actions.”
Remorse. REMORSE! That it? No other penalty of acting like a complete numbskull?
But wait – there’s more!
It seems the young lady’s father is a Litigator. Now there is a shame. And in later a later comment the idiot of a worker is no longer employed.
This is why people don’t trust the TSA. Idiots like this who take their powers, exercise them to beyond the limit and then giggle about it afterwards.
COME ON TSA – SORT IT OUT. BEFORE THE TRUST IN YOU GOES COMPLETELY
The TSA have responded in it’s Blog, showing minimal remorse (which about right for the TSA Blog)
Rebecca Solomon also has published her comments too http://michigandaily.com/print/52118
