Someone will be quick to point out that SFO is not TSA, it is private security run under TSA oversight.

That said, TSA employees did the same thing multiple times, working as a team, at DEN.

Hard to know who to believe anymore, but if it happened to me I'd be pretty upset.

Long story short...

A) Passenger says TSA clerk rubbed his junk.

B) TSA said they followed procedure.

Ergo,

A = B

You still find it hard to believe after what happened at DEN?

And that involved TSOs working together to target the individual chosen to be felt up.

But, it happened to Morrissey. As much as I like The Smiths, I can't get too worked up about anything unpleasant happening to Morrissey.

Trust the camera. Agent used proper procedures. Passenger is crying wolf. There are enough real problems with airport screening, we don't need to invent unreal ones which is what this passenger did.

I'm not sure which song to quote here.... "Hand in glove" seems to fit.

TSA at JFK gave me an aggressive pat down when I opted out of the X-ray that has been subsequently banned. I filed a formal complaint, spoke with TSA management several times. I requested the Port authority Police review the security tape. Bottom line: nobody at TSA or the Port Authority Police gives hoot. Nothing was done. TSA claims the security tape doesn't exist. Don't trust the government

I think you're preaching to the choir here. You don't need to convince us.

In his heart, the TSA agent begged "please, take me with you . . . I don't care where you're going."
