the TSA: keeping america safe from terrorism

i read this today and cringed. a federal transportation security administration(the tsa) employee was arrested this weekend for molesting a girl.

the 15 year old girl came forward about abuse that took place when she was younger and charles henry bennet admitted to the crime. he also admitted that his plan was to make the girl his "sex slave"

really??? seriously???

we all have to wait in like for ten hours at the airport so someone can grope us, throw out our travel shampoos, and quiz us about the addresses of the people we're going to visit but the TSA can employ someone who is obviously a child molester?

i'd just like to point out the hypocrisy inherent in the ways that "terrorists" are characterized as these crazy brown men who exploit and disrespect women, but the dudes "protecting" the nation are heroes.

it doesn't make sense to organize people into two categories and in such black and white terms, and this is one example of why things aren't so cut and dry.
