Looks like the TSA doesn't do such a good job of screening the screeners.
A defrocked Philly priest now holds the position of Transportation Security Manager (with the TSA) at the Philly airport. He was busted from Priest
to Lay Person because of sexually abusing young girls in his church. He doesn't have physical contact with passengers. But still ... it's a little
too close to the pat down line as far as I'm concerned.
ABC News Philadelphia
A Catholic priest who was defrocked for allegedly sexually abusing young girls was hired by the Transportation Security Administration before his
background check was complete and has worked at Philadelphia International Airport for the last 10 years.
Thomas Harkins joined the TSA in 2002 after resigning from the priesthood the same year. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the TSA hired the
former priest before completing a background check. The Diocese of Camden revealed to the TSA in 2003 as part of the background check that Harkins had
been removed from his ministry in the diocese because of allegations he had molested two girls in grade school.
Pedophiles will find their way to good hunting grounds ... be it entering the Catholic clergy, or entering the Protestant clergy, or becoming a Muslim
Imam, or becoming school teachers, or getting jobs with the TSA etc etc. This story makes me glad that I don't have to use airports nowadays ...
and it makes me nervous for those who do have to use them. God only knows who is feeling you up ... or feeling up your kids .. as you get ready to
board your flight.
This story rates a double barf from me ....
