It's no surprise that TSA agents are not the best and the brights. Another TSA agent has been arrested for criminal activity: this time it's for rape. Worse yet, it somehow involves a minor (police are therefore reluctant to elaborate).
While I'm on this topic of the TSA's recruiting skills, take a look at the new-ish website Homeland Security Theater. The artist is a former TSA agent with a great sense of humor. He had a series up recently on what the requirements are for being a TSA agent. For some added insight, read his copy below each comic strip where he sometimes give a little anecdote of his actual experiences which inspired the strip.
