Full Body Scanners Work, For Better or Worse

It’s beneath me to write about this.  It’s childish.  Juvenile, really.  But schadenfreude leaves me no choice.  Via RandazzaFox News reports:

A TSA worker in Miami was arrested when he “lost his mind” and attacked a colleague who repeatedly made fun of his small penis after the security screener walked through a high-tech scanner that showed his genitalia, according to Miami-Dade police.

Rolando Negrin, 44, was arrested at Miami International Airport Wednesday morning following an altercation with a fellow screener, Hugh Osorno, Tuesday evening. Negrin is facing assault charges for allegedly beating Osorno with a baton in the airport’s parking lot.

A man can only take so much, you know.  It’s bad enough he has to carry a baton, and may explain his inclination to use it.  Do not push Rolando.

It appears that the full body scanners work pretty well, but they aren’t recommended for a first date.  Either way.  Braggadocio is no more attractive than inadequacy.  Well, maybe a little.

I’m sorry.  I should have left this one alone.

    In other news, TSA employer absolutely confirms speculation about the size of his penis.

    The latest word is that, embarrassingly, he’s agreed to a short sentence, not wishing to spend a long time in a penile institution. What a — oh, never mind.

    So in other words these people can’t even do their jobs right in a training exercise, let alone with the public.

    Next we’ll have lawsuits over comments on breast size, or at the very least women that have to put up with crap like that from people that are SUPPOSED to be mature enough to do their jobs without acting like 12 yr olds.

    This invasion of privacy is exactly what the opponents of these machines were talking about…no surprise that it happened this fast. But what is surprising is that its with one of their own people, instead of the public.

    I count on this site to keep me informed and, thanks to you, Scott, next time I walk thru airport security I will be doing my best Anchorman Ron Burgundy impression: “nothing to see here, DON’T ACT LIKE YOU’RE NOT IMPRESSED.”

    This may backfire on you because security personnel are sometimes trained to be suspicious of people who appear to know too much about the security procedures (since terrorists and frequent flyers do their homework before travelling).

    Your best bet to get through unmolested may be to sit in the fridge for 30 minutes before arriving at the airport and then, crucially, remember to act surprised when they laugh at the picture.
