I had to click on the link to believe it. I thought for sure it must be satire.

How can you possibly be gobsmacked by this revelation? C’mon... who ELSE but mentally unstable sexually perverted losers would even CONSIDER a job with the “Theater of Sexual Assault”?

I’d guess spending his days feeling up men and looking at nekkid women in the scanners got him a leetle bit too excited.

Prayers for the victim.

I too thought the article had to be satire or something.

But it’s evidently true. Happened last Weds. though.

Still this sure won’t be good PR for the TSA.

If the people those TSA workers [full of character and integrity] were simply trying to protect would just be nice and accept the loss of the freedoms that made America great, then those poor, mistreated TSA workers wouldn't get so sad and hurt that they have to abduct an innocent girl, assault her, then attempt suicide.

Mass Transit in Atlanta.

There was a very politically incorrect play on the acronym back in the 80’s, but I wont repeat it here.

The suicide note deviates from the new protocol, but other than that, he was just following orders.

But then half of them would be dismissed... or maybe not.

Summmary: A woman kidnapped Wednesday night from Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport MARTA transit station parking lot. TSA agent Randall Scott King took her to his house in Hogansville, allegedly assaulted her and then freed her with the note. Police found him with self-inflicted wounds.

Years ago postal workers were maligned as being unstable and prone to “going postal”. TSA workers are the new postal workers.

“Going TSA” has a nice ring, especially if there is some molestation or abduction involved.

Well, did he off himself? Or are we stuck with this scum form the Transportation Scum Agency still walking among us?

Prediction 1: If he did not kill himself, he will claim his work environment was hostile and caused him to do this and he is entitled to Worker’s Compensation AND federal retirement for the rest of his natural life.

Prediction 2: If he does so, he will win.

This is the result of having low end waged employees do what is essentially a .......job?

This must be stopped!! TSA agents are facing a very teachable moment.

Are they stooges for the government? Somebody needs to talk to them and get through to them they have been soldout by their union bosses!!!! They are being played as the “useful idiots.”

The Metro-Atlanta transit authority: busses and trains.

Its local acronym is "Moving Africans Rapidly Through Atlanta". It actually means: "Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority".
