    I'm sure we can agree that this behavior is unacceptable even if there's no radiation involved. Boggles the mind that they're so awful.

    And we all know that it's the pretty ones that will try to bring more weapons on board, as they are used to people giving them a pass, right? :) I am highly tempted to post a youtube video addressing how women can hide stuff, but even though it's youtube, I am not sure about the sensibilities of the forum readers. And it might just provoke TSA agents to increase their "efforts" in protecting our freedoms. And cupcakes.

    Indeed. I can't say I am surprised though. The job must be mind bogglingly boring and from the recent reports, morale is low and discipline is horrible. They get to deal with all types of passenger and there does not appear to be much of accountability for anything. If these are government employees, they know that private companies will be taking over any time soon and if these are private company workers, then their morale is lowered even further by the low pay. Combine all that and you got recipe for all sort of stupid behavior.

    Why is that surprising? The report was about cute girls being targeted. Btw isnt photography not allowed near TSA screeners? Isn't this photo breaking an autocratic law?

    Disgusting and unprofessional behavior! TO expose the victim to additional radiation for their juvenile jollies is repugnant and deserving of not only termination, but criminal charges! :mad:

    Also, I thought the TSA screener in the other room was supposed to be the same sex as the person who was being Xrayed?

    Disgusting, but not all that surprising.

    There must be something wrong with the female "agents" at DFW because although I also get sent through the machine, it never happens more than once. ;)

    Yes, but from the article it seems there are female agents who "collaborate" with their male buddy agents to get them their... fix.

    No.

    (doesn mean you won't get into trouble when you try it as rules aren't necessarily followed at checkpoints. Maybe carry a printout of hat page to show a LEO if necessary.

    Yes, lets. I must see the evidence to determine whether it's naughty or not.

    At the end of the day, the tolerance in our culture for unprofessionalism is very high. It's very sad but that's how it is in the US. It doesn't surprise me at all that incidents like these happen... and likely happen all the time across the country. I'm sure they have more fun at their job and at the end of the day, culturally, that's what seems to matter.

    I must wholeheartedly agree. What is even more annoying is the large numbers of the general public who will never question the antics of wayward LE/military/security types because they think they are "protecting" them.

    There's a lot of trash along the side of the freeways in my area. I'd be happy of some of that $$$ was spent on cleaning those up. They can even do it in their shiny blue shirts.
