    This is arguably the last story anyone should ever have to read about the Transportation Security Administration (TSA):
    [INDENT] [B]The CBS 3 I-Team has learned that a Catholic priest who was removed from the ministry over sex abuse allegations now holds a sensitive security post at Philadelphia International Airport.[/B]

    The security checkpoint between Terminals D and E is a busy place where thousands of people – including lots of kids – pass through every day. But you might not believe who the I-Team observed working as a TSA supervisor at that checkpoint this week: Thomas Harkins.


    Until 2002, Harkins was a Catholic priest working at churches across South Jersey. But the Diocese of Camden removed him from ministry because it found he sexually abused two young girls. Now, in a new lawsuit, a third woman is claiming she also is one of Harkins’ victims.


    The I-Team asked Harkins about the suit as he was leaving his shift at the airport.


    “I have nothing to say,” was Harkins’ reply.[/INDENT][URL="http://www.lyricsfreak.com/b/bob+dylan/idiot+wind_20021193.html"]Whole pathetic tale here.[/URL]

    Serious question: Exactly what will it take for the feds to admit that the TSA is a giant mistake that needs to be scrapped? This is an agency that was created by a Republican president and subsequently evaluated by Republican congressman [URL="http://reason.com/blog/2011/11/17/tsa-10-years-of-sucking"]as worse than worthless[/URL]. You'd think that either the GOP or the Dems would pounce on this truly unpopular agency as something to chuck out altogether, if only to make partisan hay and win the hearts and minds of air travelers from the Grand Coulee Dam to the Capitol. But they're idiots, babe, it's a wonder they can even feed themselves. ([URL="http://www.lyricsfreak.com/b/bob+dylan/idiot+wind_20021193.html"]Gratuitous Dylan reference explained.[/URL])

    LOL, is this anti-Catholic or anti-Government?!?! Seems the church did the right thing kicking him out then the government sees someone that is an experienced child groper and snatches him up.

    TSA sucks and they will always be around because the airlines don't want to pay for their own security.

    Here's the big question did the Catholic Church report it to law enforcement or just got rid of him on their own?

    You can't try to laugh off your bigotry, Brother. You still don't get it.
