The TSA at work

Good grief:

Fliers may have a tough time recovering damages for invasive screenings at U.S. airport security checkpoints, after a federal appeals court on Wednesday said screeners are immune from claims under a federal law governing assaults, false arrests and other abuses.

In a 2-1 vote, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia said Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screeners are shielded by government sovereign immunity from liability under the Federal Tort Claims Act because they do not function as “investigative or law enforcement officers.”

The TSA is the gift that keeps on getting.

    That they call themselves “officers” does not endear them to the LEO community. This will only make it worse.

    If they are investigative or law enforcement officers, they need more training and stricter oversight.
