TSA agent accidentally pepper-sprays colleagues, 6 hospitalized

A TSA agent just goofing around with a “laser pointer” he found on the ground at a security checkpoint, pointed it at five of his fellow TSA agents, pushed the button, and pepper-sprayed all of them – sending all six of them to the hospital.

Personally, I’m comforted to know that a bit of old-fashioned horse play still exists at the TSA. The entire security theater thing was getting old and worn out, so it was about time they brought fun and games to the useless agency that tramples on our rights and does little to actually protect us.

Spraying colleagues and having them rushed to the hospital must have been hilarious for air passengers that are regularly sprayed with fear.

Let’s face it, forcing a double-amputee war vet to walk through a porno-scanner or taking away dangerous stuffed animals named “Lamby” from three year old girls in wheelchairs (I’m sensing a theme) is only funny so many times before you finally have to branch out to attempted blindness.

Before you go, have a laugh at a few other TSA knee-slappers:

Though to be fair, giving a pat-down to Henry Kissinger did sound more than reasonable.  (Where’s the pepper spray when you actually need it?)
