TSA screener charged with domestic assault, terrorizing

  Another TSA screener has been charged with a crime. Not only assault (which by now we’ve practically come to expect), but also “terrorizing.”  

Isn’t the TSA supposed to protect us from terrorism?

Robert Don Jensen, age 40, of Brinsmade, North Dakota was charged last week with felony terrorizing, assault, and ingestion of a controlled substance. He allegedly got into a fight with his roommate, pushed him around, and threatened him with a gun. As of this writing, he still remains in the local lock-up and he still remains employed by the TSA.

Multi-tasking!

This isn’t Jensen’s first brush with the law. Last year he assaulted a woman and a 12-year-old child.

None of that, of course, interfered with his duties of pawing people and rifling through their luggage, which he’s been doing at Devils Lake Regional Airport since 2004, two years after he first joined the TSA.

Oh, well, what’s a little shoving match between friends? Don’t worry — if he remains employed by the TSA and shoves you at the airport, it’ll just prove he’s your friend!
