Busy week in TSA land as the TSA blog takes on Internet rumors and an inappropriate note left in a passenger’s bag makes a buzz online.
First, a TSA exercise got a few folks thinking the TSA was setting up roadside check points in Tennessee. The TSA says that was not the case.
Second, a loaded gun fell from a piece of checked luggage prompting rapid criticism of the agency. The TSA responded saying that they do not look for weapons in checked luggage they only screen for explosives. The LA Times has the story.
Last, when an agent found a sex toy in a checked bag they wrote “Get your freak on girl” on the “Notice of Inspection.” The agency has since found the offending agent, saying “The handwritten note was highly inappropriate and unprofessional, and TSA has zero tolerance for this type of behavior.” The agency says disciplinary action has been taken.
