A TSA agent made a habit out of being late for work. To excuse her latest tardiness, 34 year old Taleta Collier concocted an elaborate story about a man with a knife who tried to rob her. Collier told her supervisor she was visiting her parents’ home when a man armed with a knife attempted to burglarize their vehicle. She said she drew her agency-issued weapon and aimed it at the suspect, causing him to flee.

It isn’t every day that a Federal law enforcement officer has to draw their weapon in the line of duty, so her supervisor requested the Polk Sheriff case number, and the TSA agent provided one. She even texted her supervisor a screenshot of a document that appeared to be a police report.  It was soon discovered that the report number was fake, and now the loser is facing criminal charges.

The TSA has been a disaster from the start. All this agency is, is a jobs program for morons who would otherwise be collecting welfare. I can’t believe that we give idiots like this a badge, a gun, and real authority.

The list goes on and on.

The “people that have read this post” counter isn’t counting me. No telling how high your posts counts really are.

    I’d be worried. The bots are starting to think you’re not human. 😉

The Capitol Police & FBI also come to mind and what does the USPS need automatic weapons and millions of rounds of ammo for?

Personal experience from five(?) years ago:

We were traveling with two small dogs in small, soft sided crates.
We were taken out of the main checkpoint line at the point you put all your belongings into those bins for the scan.
They took us a short distance to a TSA rep who made us take the dogs from the crates and hold them while they took a swab of our hands and placed it in some machine. After about thirty seconds we were given the all clear and entered the secured section of the terminal.
It was only here that I realized my keys, wallet, watch were still on me and my travel bag were not subject to any kind of scan or search.
I’m hoping this breakdown in screening has been rectified, but we have a government agency with unskilled, low paid personnel…….

Paid the $85 extortion fee to use relaxed inspection line (Pre-Check). Last month at MCO wife had to take off almost tissue-thin shawl and I had to take off my belt. BOTH are specifically stated to be leave-on items for Pre-Check. No problems at three other airports.

Even the author of the comic strip “Drabble” had his lead character leave a job with TSA for something respectable.

Since when are TSA (Thousands Standing Around) morons issued weapons?

    Jonathan · April 20, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    Most TSA personnel are not agents; they keep trying and Congress keeps prohibiting it. That’s why they have local cops at checkpoints.
    Various Homeland Security personnel are agents, I’m not clear who she actually works for from the article.

We were warned that we should not use our federal port access ID’s (TWIC cards) issued by the DHS as ID, because TSA agents don’t know what federal ID’s look like.
Merchant Mariner Credentials can be used in lieu of passports for international travel, but we are warned not to travel without a passport, because on returning to the US the TSA will not admit mariners to the US, not knowing the law. Even in the most backwater ports in the Carribbean, or middle east, we flash the red MMD and get waved through, but trying that in the US ends up with you spending 12 hours in your underwear chained to a metal table while a 500lb high school dropout with 6 teeth (2 of which are in her pocket) yells at you for making her call a supervisor.
