When I first started at the TSA I was assigned a “shadow.” Basically a Shadow is another officer that watches over the new recruits to assure they are doing things correctly. The officer assigned to me was a nice enough guy, however he had one little fetish that I found a little …off putting. He would stand at the front of the TSA checkpoint and look through the crowd. He would find a girl that looked cute or maybe was wearing little clothing, then select them for additional screening. Now, LAX like most airports does not allow male officers to patdown female passengers. So my Shadow would get a female officer and tell her to pat the passenger he selected down while he watched. Sometimes overseeing the patdown and making further suggestions. Then he wound go find another girl to harass.Read the rest of Bill's post and check out his comic on Miss USA's recent abuse.
