A man suspected of being drunk posed as a security screener at San Francisco International Airport long enough to direct a couple of women into a private booth for pat downs before real security staffers caught on to him, authorities said Wednesday.
..Two other airport law enforcement sources tell us the incident started when the man entered the security area wearing khaki pants, a blue polo shirt and blue rubber gloves — an outfit that might have been mistaken for those worn by screeners with the private Covenant security firm.
The man, apparently without saying much, steered a woman into one of the private screening booths used to pat down selected passengers, our sources say. What happened inside isn’t known, because the woman soon disappeared to catch a flight.
Since the women haven’t been found in order to file a complaint for the actual touching, the only present charge is public drunkenness.
You see, the touching is only ok when airport security does it.
The groper, though, likely knows that Washington DC is part of the United States.
Of course when the screeners go beyond procedure, that’s excused as As they say, a few bad apples who in no way undermine the hard work that thousands of men and women at the TSA do to keep us safe, day in and day out.
