TSA Workers – Are they “Safety Inspectors” or “Sexual Predators?”

Don’t Touch My Junk (the TSA Hustle) song & video!

What are the requirements to be a TSA Worker? Are they put through an extensive background check? What about a psychological screening? How long is the training? Is it Adequate?

Part of the training should include that they themselves be personally pat-down as well as go through the body screening machine. Will there be continuous training since situations will constantly arise that is not covered by the training manual?

The TSA workers need to be able to excerpt common sense when they come across an incident that is not covered in their manual. What if someone passes through with a prosthetic eye, ear or nose, would they know what to do? How light or hard should the pat-down be? These are just a few of the questions that I would like to have answered in the training manual with respect to their position.

My suggestion is that there should be a separate room with video equipment (should any issues arise as a result of the pat-down) for anyone who is handicapped with prosthetics or any other item medically attached to make them whole. These passengers should have to show up at the airport an additional hour earlier to be processed for boarding.

The handicapped passenger should carry on their person a card similar to a passport, with their picture attached and medical and pertinent information included to allow the interviewing process to proceed with minimal invasion and personal contact; while allowing the passenger to exist with their dignity intact.

It doesn’t matter how you play with the wording or any excuse you give for condoning such action, “If someone touches you in an inappropriate manner or come in contact with your genital, “IT’S SEXUAL ASSAULT.” If there are witnesses to such an incident, it then also becomes “SEXUAL HARRASSMENT” for having to witness such an act.

I’m sure that the proper administration can promptly implement a procedure that is amiable to the general public while upholding the high standards of National Security. Good Luck!
