    TSA Agents at Louisville Airport Steal Deaf Man's Candy, Call Him "Fvcking Deafie"

    TSA Agents at Louisville Airport Steal Deaf Man's Candy, Call Him "$#@!ing Deafie"

    Mike Riggs | July 10, 2012
    Click here to enlargeA group of students leaving the annual conference of the National Association of the Deaf in Louisville had a rather awful experience courtesy of the Transportation Security Administration in that city's airport. One of the travelers wrote about it on his blog:
    It was a very public week-long event downtown, make no bones about it. As such, the shirt very clearly identified me as deaf.
    While I was going through the TSA, some of them started laughing in my direction. I thought it might’ve been someone behind me, but I found out otherwise.
    They went through my bag (for no reason), and found a couple bags of candy I brought. I was told I wasn’t allowed to fly with that (wtf? I’ve flown with food before — these were even sealed still because I brought them right in the airport). I was then asked if I would like to donate the candy “To the USO”. Since I know the airport there has an Air National Guard base, and I figured it would go to the soldiers, I (annoyed) said sure, why not?
    The guards, as I was getting scanned, started eating the candy they just told me was for the soldiers. In front of me, still laughing at me (very clearly now). One of them asked why they were laughing, and one of them came up to me, pointed at my shirt, laughed at me and said, “$#@!ing deafie”. The Louisville TSA called me a “$#@!ing deafie” and laughed at me because I was deaf, and they expected wouldn’t say anything back (or wouldn’t hear them). Make no bones about it — she was facing me and I read her lips. There was no mistake. I would later find out that they had called at least 4 other individuals the same thing.

    The TSA was started after 911 as everyone knows.

    They now have FIFTY EIGHT THOUSAND employees.

    LOL @ this bloated, bull$#@! organization. I bet the number of employees could be halved without issue.

    As an example, when a fortune-500 organization goes from 5000 to 10000 people, there will be MAJOR struggles to maintain the proper culture - integrity, respect, performance, etc. Imagine a government run organization that ballooned to that size in basically 10 years. Preposterous.

    58,000, great.

    And trying to eliminate it will be impossible due to the cries about the "jobs" lost. $#@!...
