Airport screener accused of beating co-worker after jokes about his genitalia

A Miami International Airport federal security screener has been arrested for allegedly using an expandable police baton to beat up a co-worker.

The source of their conflict, police say: daily ribbing about the size of the screener’s genitalia.

Screener Rolando Negrin’s private body parts were observed by his Transportation Security Administration colleagues conducting training on the airport’s full-body imaging machines.

Months of joking culminated on Tuesday night, when Negrin attacked co-worker Hugo Osorno in an employee parking lot, according to an arrest report.

Negrin “stated he could not take the jokes any more and lost his mind,” said the report, made public Thursday.

The agitated screener forced Osorno to his knees and made him apologize before whacking him on the back and arms with the baton, according to the report.

    This is strange story because when Homeland Security was introducing these screening devices the public was assured that the imaging machines were not designed to be able to accurately view genitalia and that no one would have to worry about the screeners being able to use the imaging devices as a porn site. So much for the guarantees of privacy protection and circumspection within the TSA workforce

    This is simply a workplace violation of sexual discrimination rules. These workers know that they are going to be working with sensitive materials and must behave professionally. If they break the rules, they should suffer the consequences. Don't blame the machines. It is NO different than the TSA officer who decides to grope a passenger during a pat-down. Do we blame the fact that they do pat-downs or should we simply charge the offender with the crime they committed? Cop shoots an innocent person — do we take away the guns of all cops? No, deal with the offender. The TSA screening machines can be used by the wrong people for the wrong reasons — the TSA should properly educate workers on proper usage and should deal with infractions severely. In this case, the poor dude had to take matters into his own hands — that happens in many workplaces when there are cases of sexual harrassment.
