Of course I haven’t gone near an airport since 2009, and didn’t get on a plane that time, so I can afford to just munch popcorn and enjoy the show.
Perhaps even worse? The outcomes of these misconduct allegations. Findings from the six-month-long investigation show that from fiscal year 2013 to 2015, the number of investigations opened and closed decreased by 15 percent and 28 percent, respectively. TSA increased the use of non-disciplinary actions by almost 80 percent, while it decreased the use of disciplinary actions by 14 percent. Put simply, this means the TSA has offered fewer (and lesser) punishments, and has instead sought to treat the misconduct with “more counseling and letters that explain why certain behaviors were not acceptable.”
Translation: It’s not only pervasive, it’s completely out of control and they don’t know what to do about it.
I’ve never seen a private factory or company with discipline problems this severe, but if I ever had I’d have predicted its imminent collapse.
No doubt DHS will throw more money at hushing up any further such articles. That’ll fix the problem.
