A TSA worker in Miami was arrested when he "lost his mind" and attacked a colleague who repeatedly made fun of his small penis after the security screener walked through a high-tech scanner that showed his genitalia, according to Miami-Dade police.
"The X-ray revealed [Negrin] has a small penis and co-workers made fun of him on a daily basis," according to the report.
"The transfer of 41 police officers and 12 firefighters might save the airport an estimated $10 million a year, a savings essential to preventing the loss of more flights -- and the passenger revenue they bring -- from the financially strapped airport, officials said."
Perhaps the new airport body scanners are a bit too revealing. A TSA worker in Miami was arrested for aggravated battery after police say he attacked a colleague who’d made fun of his small genitalia after he walked through one of the new high-tech security scanners during a recent training session.
Don't like the way airport screeners are doing their job? You might not want to complain too much while standing in line.
Arrogant complaining about airport security is one indicator Transportation Security Administration officers consider when looking for possible criminals and terrorists. And, when combined with other behavioral indicators, it could result in a traveler facing additional scrutiny.
An ambitious, multibillion-dollar project to hot-wire the new Southwest border fence with high-tech radar, cameras and satellite signals has been plagued with serious system failures and repeated delays and will probably not be completed for another seven years -- if it is finished at all.
"It was a great idea, but it didn't work," said Mark Borkowski, executive director of the electronic fence program at the Homeland Security Department.
If you don't want to pass through an airport scanner that allows security agents to see an image of your naked body or to undergo the alternative, a thorough manual search, you may have to find another way to travel this holiday season.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is warning that any would-be commercial airline passenger who enters an airport checkpoint and then refuses to undergo the method of inspection designated by TSA will not be allowed to fly and also will not be permitted to simply leave the airport.
A significant production problem with new high-tech $100 bills has caused government printers to shut down production of the new notes, which have sophisticated high-tech security features, including a 3-D security strip and a color-shifting image of a bell designed to foil counterfeiters. But the production process is so complex, it has instead foiled the government printers tasked with producing billions of the new notes. An official said that 1.1 billion of the new bills have been printed, but they are unusable because of a creasing problem in which paper folds over during production.
