Aww, poor baby.

Apparently a TSA agent reported sexual assault from a fellow TSA agent. Apparently she felt they retaliated against her, and now she's suing.

I have no pity. It's about time they experience this crap directly.

Via BoingBoing.

Oh waaaaa... Shes now feeling the pain WE feel everytime we interact with them.

Meh. A rapist doesn't deserve to be raped, the TSA agents don't deserve to be assaulted.

It would be nice if the TSA, as an org, would figure out how useless and abusive they seem to the public, but somehow I doubt they don't already know that.

And TSA agents assault people every day at every airport across the country. Why aren't they going to jail for it?

Hell, why can't we do anything about it? Why is it this one particular individual has the ability to sue? Oh wait, it's because this was a workplace issue.

If anything, this MAY make the TSA higher-ups wake up and realize hey, we're doing something bad to these people every single day.

...Oh, that's right, I'm talking about a government agency. Nothing will change for the better.

I still think the creation of the TSA was one of the worst things to come out of the Bush Administration. W should have just told Congress to pound sand on that.

I go back to something I wrote earlier in the week and think we should shun TSA agents in daily life. You can't avoid them at the airport but you can make them feel like the pariahs they are in the rest of their life.

@zigdon: Apply the Golden Rule, and you see that they're doing unto others as they would have others do unto them.

The only drawback is that nobody doing unto them will get paid for it, the way they get paid for doing unto others.

And don't forget, the Lex Talonis ("eye for eye, tooth for tooth, life for life") is a limitation on punishment, to keep it from crossing the line into revenge. But what the criminal does to someone else, the criminal can expect in return, as fair, proper, and just punishment.
