This is from our local newspaper, the Miami Herald. Incidents like this give the already tarnished reputation of TSA staff an even worse image which is a shame because I have NEVER run into a TSA staffer who was not professional and reflected negatively on the TSA.
Miami Beach police say two Transportation Security Administration officers partied a little too hard Tuesday night, trashed their South Beach hotel room and then picked up a semi-automatic handgun and shot six rounds out the window.
One bullet pierced a $1,500 hurricane impact resistant window at a nearby Barneys New York, penetrated a wall and tore into some jeans in the closed store’s stockroom, according to store manager Adelchi Mancusi.

I wouldn't say the TSA is "out of control"; I'd say the two idiots that did this are "out of control"; I'd also say they probably won't be "out" much longer ! Firing a weapon out of a hotel window and doing the damage they did, is not a "slap on the wrist" offense; you won't be seeing those fools in a TSA uniform again !
