TSA agent accidentally pepper sprays fellow agents

An incident that reportedly led a TSA agent to accidentally shoot five fellow employees with pepper spray left Kennedy International Airport with mud in its eye.

According to the New York Post, the stinging substance that is meant to be aimed at the face, and can cause major eye irritation, sent all six airport security screeners to the hospital.

The Post reports:

The agent, Chris Yves Dabel, discovered the device at the Terminal 2 security checkpoint and tried to determine if it was real, a source told The Post.

He told Port Authority cops that he “found the canister on the floor and thought it was a laser pointer.”

“They were playing around with it,” said one Kennedy Airport official.

You aren’t supposed to direct laser pointers to the face either.

But overall I find it pretty damn funny.

Too bad it wasn’t bear spray.

Give that man an MP-5 and 10,000 rounds of DHS .40 S&W.

Years ago a friend of mine was the Road Captain for a motorcycle club. A rival club torched the clubhouse. Police confiscated the armory. When my friend went to the police to reclaim the weapons a cop was playing with a shotgun, it fired.
Fortunately no was hit but it left a hole in the ceiling.

Some of these morons have shinny badges and I would guess some real weapons too.
With an attitude to boot.

Better yet, these are the clowns that Free Republic’s surrender monkey contingent believe will goosestep house-to-house and disarm 100 million Americans and encounter no problems.

Now if they all would actually shoot each other, the world would be a better place.

Oh HOW they check...

1. Peer down barrel of gun.
2. Press trigger.
3. Die.

Yep! That one’s loaded! Too bad about old Mr. Phrenwinkle there.
