We’ve all had the sneaking suspicion that some Transportation Security Administration (TSA) employees enjoy their jobs just a bit too much.
See a hot chick or a hunk, and set the phasors to STUN! Government-sanctioned molestation.
A former TSA employee has all but verified what we already knew, and that is groping people can be part of the perks of the job at TSA.
As Time.com reported:
The recent story of two Transportation Security Administration screeners at Denver International Airport manipulating full-body scanners in order to grope men’s crotches is disturbing, but it came as no surprise to me.
Over the course of my six years with the TSA, the leveraging of rules and surveillance tools to abuse passengers was a daily checkpoint occurrence. Has the TSA screener searching your luggage suddenly decided to share with you the finer points of official bag-search procedures just as your final boarding call is being announced? There’s a good chance that he or she just doesn’t like you. Or in some cases, as we’ve seen, it may be that the screener finds you attractive and wants to use the TSA rules as an excuse to get his or her hands on you.
