TSA Screener Cited "Torture" In Scanner Case Arrestee's genitalia was exposed by "full body" device

SEPTEMBER 14--The airport screener arrested for assaulting a coworker who taunted him about the size of his penis after his genitalia was exposed by a full-body scanner told police that he snapped after being subjected to “psychological torture” by fellow Transportation Security Administration employees who repeatedly asked him, “What size are you?”

In a handwritten statement given to cops following his May arrest, Rolando Negrin, 45, described the fallout after he walked through a high-tech "whole body image" scanner during a training session for TSA workers at Miami International Airport. Negrin’s statement to Miami-Dade Police Department officers, excerpted here, was obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request. The original police report detailing the incident can be found here.

Negrin wrote that, despite his pleas, coworkers would not cease mocking him after the scanner gave them a revealing look at his genitalia. He recalled that he was mockingly asked, “Roly, what size are you?” Coworkers, he added, called him “little angry man,” laughed off his pleas for compassion, and abused him in front of passengers..............

Includes police report.

“Psychological torture”, you mean “sexual harassment”.

But then it is okay to sexually harass dudes in the workplace. Identity politics is funny that way.

This guy is going to be prosecuted for assault -- there's not much he can do. The only question is whether a jury will take pity on him.

However, the earlier reports indicate that he complained to his supervisor, who blew him off (and I think was even the originator of the taunt). He had grounds for a major sexual harassment lawsuit, but he may have blown his chances for a big settlement by taking matters into his own hands.

How about we lock him in county for thirty days for assault, but still let him extract six figures from TSA?

They shouldn’t let a “small” thing like this bother them... Sorry I couldn’t help it.

He does look “a bit short where it counts”. Oh well, let’s hope things improve for him (and there’s always those second-level advertisements that might help him).

Maybe he just got back from swimming and the water was cold.

Good point - I know that feeling. I’d still be single if not the warm water.
