‘Get Your Freak On Girl’ TSA Screener Fired

By Paul Joesph Watson | Infowars | Oct.  28, 2011

In a rare example of the federal agency caving to public outrage, the TSA has been forced to fire the screener who left a lewd message in lawyer Jill Filipovic’s checked bag after conducting an inspection and finding a sex toy.

After arriving at her hotel, Filipovic discovered that her bag had been searched and a TSA inspection form had been amended with the words “GET YOUR FREAK ON GIRL” written on the reverse side.

Having initially only suspended the TSA screener responsible, the federal agency was forced to go a step further only after the story went viral and caused substantial public outrage.

“[The TSA] has initiated action to remove the individual from federal service,” a TSA spokesperson said. “Like all federal employees, this individual is entitled to due process and protected by the Privacy Act. During the removal action process, the employee will not perform any screening duties.”

Ironically, the TSA refuses to reveal the name or gender of the culprit, citing the Privacy Act.

Filipovic rightly suggests that the TSA’s decision to lay the blame on one person only serves to hide the all-pervading disregard for privacy within the whole agency.

“It’s easy to scape-goat one individual here, but the problem with the note is that it’s representative of the bigger privacy intrusions that the U.S. government, through the TSA and other sources, levels every day,” wrote Filipovic. “The invasion is inherent to the TSA’s mission, regardless of whether a funny note is left behind — the note only serves to highlight the absurdity of all this security theater. As much as this is a funny and titillating story, when I put the note on Twitter for what I thought was a relatively limited audience I was hoping it would open up a bigger conversation about privacy rights (or lack thereof) in post-9/11 America.”

Meanwhile, yet more TSA agents have been caught engaging in criminal activity, in this case stealing cash from a checked bag at John F. Kennedy Airport.

44-year-old Coumar Persad, of Queens, and 31-year-old Davon Webb, of the Bronx, pleaded guilty to grand larceny yesterday after admitting to stealing $40,000 dollars after spotting the cash in a bag that was being X-rayed.

As we have documented, the overwhelming instances of unlawful activity on behalf of TSA agents that have been made public clearly indicates that crooks are being attracted to the job because it gives them ample opportunity to satisfy their criminal tendencies, particularly in the context of theft and sexual molestation.
