TSA employee arrested after making terroristic threats

(NaturalNews) Calls are growing, both from the general public and from lawmakers, to pull the plug on the hapless criminal  enterprise known as the Transportation Security Administration.

And why  not? The agency is incompetent, has not lived up to its billing (preventing  terrorist attacks), and has made air travel nightmarish for tens of millions of  Americans.

Well, now we can add a new one to the list of TSA failures:  Actually making a terrorist threat.

As reported by KHOU in  Houston:

Houston police arrested a Transportation Security  Administration officer accused of making a threat to fellow employees at Bush  Intercontinental Airport.

The incident reportedly happened on Jan. 25 in  the security checkpoint area of Terminal C.

Jeno Mouton, of Houston,  allegedly told a TSA supervisor that “he would rather vent than to come back and  shoot up the place,” according to an arrest affidavit.

Police say  Mouton, a long-time employee, allegedly made his comment during an actual shift  when he was on duty as a TSA agent.

Epic fail

A TSA  supervisor told cops that she discussed the statement with Mouton for several  minutes, and not only did he refuse to recant it, but he reportedly repeated the  threat several more times during that conversation.

The supervisor then  reported the conservation with Mouton to the human resources office manager.  Mouton was immediately informed that he could not return to the airport or any  other TSA offices or  facilities, according to an affidavit.

But he didn’t  listen:

Then on Jan. 29, a TSA worker reported that she saw Mouton on  the secure side of the Bush Airport terminal in plain clothes.

Mouton’s  supervisors said they were concerned that Mouton posed a threat because he came  back to the airport after being warned to stay away, and noted that he has a  current Texas concealed handgun license.

Now, the agent is facing  felony terrorism charges. He was jailed on a $5,000 bond and has been scheduled  to appear in court March 7.

In a recent tell-all, one former TSA agent  admitted that his agency was essentially a waste of taxpayer money, and that the  intrusive scanners at most major airports were not only ineffective but sources  of amusement for scores of agents.

Feel safe, America

In a Politico piece, former agent Jason Edward Harrington  writes,

“Dear America, I saw you naked, and yes, we were  laughing.”

Further, he observed:

I quickly discovered I was  working for an agency whose morale was among the lowest in the U.S. government.  In private, most TSA officers I talked to told me they felt the agency’s  day-to-day operations represented an abuse of public trust and funds.

—  Each day I had to look into the eyes of passengers in niqabs and thawbs  undergoing full-body pat-downs, having been guilty of nothing besides holding  passports from the wrong nations. As the son of a German-American mother and an  African-American father who was born in the Jim Crow South, I can pass for  Middle Eastern, so the glares directed at me felt particularly accusatory. The  thought nagged at me that I was enabling the same government-sanctioned bigotry  my father had fought so hard to escape.

— We knew the full-body scanners  didn’t work before they were even installed. Not long after the Underwear Bomber  incident, all TSA officers at O’Hare were informed that training for the  Rapiscan Systems full-body scanners would soon begin. The machines cost about  $150,000 a pop.

Our instructor was a balding middle-aged man who shrugged  his shoulders after everything he said, as though in apology. At the conclusion  of our crash course, one of the officers in our class asked him to tell us, off  the record, what he really thought about the machines.

“They’re shit,” he  said, shrugging.

Feel safe, America. The TSA is on the  job.
