TSA employee charged in beating

Here's some weird airport news: The Miami Herald is reporting that a security screener at Miami International Airport has been arrested for allegedly beating up a co-worker with a baton.

Police say the conflict arose over ribbing about the size of the screener's genitalia.

According to an arrest report, the Herald says, the joking had been going on for a year.

The screener "stated he could not take the jokes any more and lost his mind,'' said the report, which the Herald cited. The screener Rolando Negrin is charged with aggravated battery.

Read the details here.

But I thought the nud-o-scopes couldn't see that level of detail... another reason to refuse to go through these are the airport. let the tsa pedo's feel you up (for national security, of course.)

make sure to request they change their gloves before their grab.

Wait a minute, if these machines can get that much detail then its use would be an invasion of privacy.

Was it too big (and visible) or too small (and not visible)???? Guys better be careful carrying a big package on the plane.

"thebobob," reports elsewhere have said he was mocked for having a small schlong. The problem with responding the way he did is that now the whole world knows about it! Seems like his way of dealing with it backfired.
