    An airport passenger screener is facing charges after he allegedly distributed more than 100 images of child pornography.
    Transport Safety Administration (TSA) officer Thomas Gordon Jnr. allegedly used Facebook to share the sick pictures of young girls and also posted a picture of himself in his work uniform on another photo sharing website.
    He was arrested by Homeland Security agents in Philadelphia, US, on March 24 and is now being held without bail.
    The arrest follows several incidents involving TSA officers in America, including one involving a 6-year-old girl.
    A video was posted on YouTube by her angry parents who claim that TSA officials had 'groped' her at an airport in New Orleans.

    The details of the alleged crimes are sick enough, but.....

    THAT is weapons-grade stupid right there.

    And all this talk about the TSA being of the highest caliber in professionalism......right.

    And remember that he did have a background check :rolleyes:.

    I have been saying all along that the TSA needs to do a psych evaluation on all employees (prospective and current) just the way law enforcement agencies do. Not so say the the TSA is a law enforcement agency (tho there are those that work for the TSA that think it is but I digress ;)) as those employed by the TSA a sworn to protect us as are LEO's.
