The TSA has personnel problems just as other agencies of the government and private industry.....no surprise here. Usually these issues come about as a given percentage of unsuitable people work in certain fields and give entire groups a bad name due to misconduct. What more can be done? Well, you start with better screaning to weed out those with known problems, and you do a better job of training and orientation. You only promote the most excellent and stable people to supervisory levels. You fire those employees and supervisors who are "enablers" and "look the other way" when their subordinates or colleagues are involved in misconduct. In other words, you must clean house regularly. But wait....that is not the real reason, even though there will always be the 10 percent of underperforming individuals who cannot be redeemed. The problem goes to the soul of our land, where incivility and profanity are national characteristics, where alcohol and drugs are prevalent, where morals and character are newly defined by reality television and Hollywood as the most negative illustrations of the American way. Cable television gives us pornography, pundits attack Christian values, and love of country, Mom and Dad, and apple pie are the old ethics. Most new films are violent, graphic, sexualized, and to be a narcissist is a virtue in today's climate. Yes, one scandal after another, the IRS, NSA, TSA, the Obama administration, a breakdown of our national character, where good values are no longer discussed. To solve the problems of the TSA, one must lift the veneer and see what lies beneath the surface.
