A manager at the Transportation Security Administration has lost his job after being arrested on prostitution-related charges. According to court documents, the agency had received a complaint of “very similar” activities back in 2009.

(Emphasis mine.)  So much for their “holding employees to the higher professional and ethical standards.”  The TSA’s statement on the matter:

“TSA cooperated fully with law enforcement during their investigation into this matter. The allegations against this individual are unacceptable and in no way reflect the integrity and professionalism of the more than 50,000 security officers who strive every day to ensure the security of the traveling public.”

Guess they were really just upset he got caught second time because it seems the first time would be enough to swing the axe.

Because it’s only a problem after you get caught multiple times, we just say that stuff about integrity, ethics, and professionalism to make people feel good.

SSCC #295 & #296-TSA

Miami Beach police say two Transportation Security Administration officers partied a little too hard Tuesday night, trashed their South Beach hotel room and then picked up a semi-automatic handgun and shot six rounds out the window.

Look at this, we have a story that obviously must be fake given the total amount of unpossible required given the arguments of the anti-rights cultists about our “anointed betters”.  Thankfully no one was injured because it could have just as easily gone the other way with the reckless behavior.

One bullet pierced a $1,500 hurricane impact resistant window at a nearby Barneys New York, penetrated a wall and tore into some jeans in the closed store’s stockroom, according to store manager Adelchi Mancusi.

Thankfully it was late and the store was closed.  Even then though it’s also a good thing that no one was working late.   As expected the TSA is reviewing the situation to take “appropriate action”.

“TSA holds its employees to the highest professional and ethical standards,” Allen wrote. “We will review the facts and take appropriate action as necessary.”

They will most likely be promoted to management as soon as their charges are plead down to the point to be insignificant.  We can’t have our anointed TSA brown shirts looking bad even if they’re not on duty.

Because our fearless overlords can by no means do something grossly negligent like throwing all 4 of the basic rules of firearms handling to the wind.  When it happens they will review the facts, as they like to see them, and take appropriate action as necessary, pay them more and tell them to be more abusive.

Quote of the Day–A Girl and Her Gun (03/30/2012)

You can take the gamble, you can roll the dice, you can lie to yourself, but know this, it’s a mighty dangerous game your playing.  You might want to think about how to stack the deck in your favor.

A Girl and Her GunNot Very Good Odds

March 30,2012

[Sadly she speaks the truth, the odds of you eventually having some sort of encounter with a criminal in your life is not 0.  It’s even worse if you’re of the female gender.  There are numerous things we can do to help decrease the odds, but even then it never reaches 0.  Some times bad things happen to good people and it’s not the fault of something you did or didn’t do.  You’re best bet is to prepare for the possible and do what you can to stack the deck in your favor.  -B]

SSCC #294 – TSA

Yet another pedophile found amongst the TSA employee pool, separate from this incident prior to the count.

A former employee of the U.S. Transportation Security Administration has
been sentenced to nearly three and a half years in prison for
possessing child pornography.

Just recently the TSA was in the count with a screener feeling a young boy in a wheel chair due to an injury was the biggest threat to society.  In that I included another incident than previously mentioned.

Still think the TSA is a bunch a good people and not a bunch of goons snatching up power to abuse the people?

Because becoming a TSA agent means that your abuse of children is really for the greater good right?

SSCC #293–Waterloo

Schaffnit complied with the officer, saying he was going to get his boss, according to the lawsuit. He wasn’t aggressive or threatening towards Nissen and didn’t place himself in between Tusing and Nissen or another officer, actions which could justify use of a taser, according to the suit.

According to court records, Nissen shot Schaffnit in the back with his Taser X26 as Schaffnit “jogged” towards the bakery to get his boss. Schaffnit then fell face down slamming his head onto the cement which knocked him unconscious for a few minutes as blood pooled around his face and head. As he started to regain consciousness, he attempted to roll onto his side, which made it difficult to cuff his other hand, and Nissen tasered him again.

Schaffnit was then arrested on two charges of interference with officials acts, according to the lawsuit. Schaffnit was acquitted on the charges July 7, 2010. First Judicial District Magistrate Dawn Newcomb said the evidence at trial showed Schnaffnit complied with Nissen’s orders to leave and the other officer at the scene, Nathan Watson, testified Schaffnit didn’t interfere with the investigation and did comply by leaving.

So what does it take for a department to say, “That was excessive and you’re fired?”  The other officer saw the individual comply with the Nissen’s order to leave.  Instead of stopping that officer right there he arrested him and then aided the officer in his BS story only to testify against him later.  Think about that, the officer shot someone in the back without warning or cause for complying with what he told him to do.

State Sponsored Criminal Count 293: Officer Mark Nissen

Because when you tell someone to leave and they comply, you tase them in the back.  Then as they regain consciousness you tase them again.  Because you know that’s totally good in the force continuum.

Hmm, This Could Be Useful

I can think of a few things that this would be handy for.  Especially if you could make it so cheap it’s disposable.

Jumping fences, on top of buildings, getting into places where getting people would be difficult or attract too much attention.  I still prefer the UAV though.  The UAV has even more possibilities, though this little bug does have some interesting prospects from a Red Team point of view.

Earworm Wednesday–(3/28/2012)

I stumbled across this and couldn’t stop laughing.

LMFAO – Sorry for Party Rocking

I must admit if someone came to my house and complained about the noise in the same manner I’m probably going to have a similar response… and if the alcohol hadn’t come out, I might turn off the music, apologize, head out the back gate and get a bunch of guys together and run a impromptu USPSA match*.  Gunfire is quieter than music right?

*The moral of the story here is just be polite and I’ll apologize and work with you.  Be a dick and I’m not going to care.
