TSSA in the news

The Transportation Security Administration (TSSA - two S's, because you can't spell Schutzstaffel without the second S) has had themselves quite a time of late. They whiffed - badly - on the Nigerian crotch incinerator terrorist who flew into Detroit. And now this.

A TSA agent was arrested on January 3rd in Terminal One at LAX, a source told NBCLA. He had just gotten off duty and was behaving erratically, saying, "I am god, I’m in charge."
My question is this: is this newsworthy because the TSSA agent was off duty, versus at their station? Because, IMO, that's the attitude they ALL have.

Wait. It gets better.
Meanwhile, a TSA Internal Affairs investigation turned up evidence of LAX TSA agents using drugs at an after-hours party.
I repeat my earlier question: is this newsworthy because the TSSA agents were off duty, versus at their stations? Just asking.

But be of good cheer, because the TSSA employees will soon be unionized, making them just like DMV and postal workers.

God help us.
