TSA Worker Jailed For Assaulting Co-Worker Who Made Fun Of His Genitals During Full-Body Scan
Rolando Negrin, a TSA worker at Miami International Airport, was arrested for aggravated battery after he assaulted a co-worker who made fun of his penis during a body-scanning machine training session. Negrin was insulted and embarrassed by a supervisor’s comments as he walked through the machine.
A police report obtained by NBC states that Negrin later attacked a colleague with a police baton in a parking lot, and told the victim to kneel down and say “sorry.” After being arrested, Negrin told police that coworkers often made fun of him.
For those who have privacy concerns about full-body scanning, this may make their case.
The $170,000 machines, which were introduced last year, took some heat from fliers who weren’t quite ready to show their bod to government employees.
But if this latest incident is any indication, the scanners sound like good news for anti-terrorism and bad news for less-than-average men.Click here for reuse options!
