TSA's "Federal Agents"

If you haven't been following one of the things the TSA has been up to this year, one of the things they've been doing is slowly replacing uniforms to look more like police officers. This includes a metal badge despite the fact that the majority of TSA employees are not actually law enforcement officers. Everyone's been wondering when this was going to cause an issue with 14,000 screeners across the country now starting to dress like police.

Well, it's happened in really one of the most pathetic cases possible. Not only was the screener outside of the airport and not in uniform (shows just how much power he thinks he has) but then refused to show his ID to actual Cincinnati Police officers after a concession stand at a baseball game refused to serve him more alcohol:

Claiming he was a federal agent couldn't keep a Chicago man from being arrested at Great American Ball Park on Saturday.

According to court records, when a concession employees working the View Level refused to serve Rafael Rosario, 26, he asked two more times.

When Cincinnati Police asked to see Rosario’s I.D., he tensed up and claimed he was a federal agent and the officer had no right to see his I.D. Records show Rosario is employed by the Transportation Safety Administration at O’Hare Airport in Chicago.

Police say Rosario gave them an Illinois state drivers license, not a federal I.D. Police note he refused to cooperate with officers and had blood shot eyes and they could smell alcohol.

Seems like a shame since it not only will continue to discredit the TSA but actual law enforcement officers as well. Hopefully this dude is fired and can't get another security job again. Also the irony of the TSA now requiring ID to fly and one of their employees then refusing to show his is just too much!

I'm curious... is the purpose of this blog to give you someplace to bitch or are you a naturally crabby person?

I for one would think if you had all of the answers to the problems in life, you would be running the nation and Obama would be pissing and moaning in a blog someplace...
