Americas Latest Attempt at providing better security failed when a TSA agent was fired from SEA after taking a little nap. The nap caused many delays and the airport had to be partially evacuated. I heard this on CNN this morning. But I will allow you to discuss.

Why was the airport evacuated? Surely why he/she was napping someone else was working.

To quote The Who: "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss." Sounds like the same type of stuff that when on when private companies ran the security; so it doesn't matter who runs the airport security, we'll still end up getting morons running the screenings. Considering that many of the TSA screeners are the same people that were running the screening areas as employees of ITS, Wackenhut, Argenbright and others security companies, it's no surprise that this happened. The only difference is now they are "federal employees", which is really in name only, because they do not have all of the same worker's rights as other federal employees.

Yeah, I am sure that is rules for the job at the airport and no one for allowed to take a sleeping at the job. It did got fired of screeners at SEA and before 2 security screeners did got fired for illegal security breaches at MIA. They did stopped for security breaches of 9/11. It had need to be responsible for watch with the people at the checkpoint. Right? Well, talk ya later!!

This has been discussed in two other topics lately.

At least they got fired. Pre-9/11, there were sleepers and chatters and ambivalents every day that never got fired from the private companies.

I still think its pathetic though. People need to be screened and you're sleeping.
