TSA continues to hire child porn criminals

by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) A statewide crackdown on sexual deviants in Massachusetts has led to the arrest and criminal charge of U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screener Jose E. Salgado, a 59-year-old from Chelsea that had been working at Logan International Airport in Boston. Salgado had apparently been in possession of and was distributing pornographic images of young children, a disgusting crime that is quickly proving to be quite common at the TSA.

According to the Huffington Post, Salgado has been suspended, but not necessarily fired, from his position at the TSA while the investigation moves forward (http://www.huffingtonpost.com). Meanwhile, Sgt. Michael Hill, Commander of the Massachusetts Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, told reporters that the 55 individuals apprehended as part of the child pornography sting are "just a drop in the bucket."

Besides Salgado, at least two other TSA screeners from Massachusetts have been nabbed in recent months on charges of possessing and distributing child pornography, or for committing acts of sexual assault against children. Ex-TSA screener Andrew Cheever, for instance, was recently sentenced to three and a half years in prison for possession of child pornography (http://www.myfoxboston.com), while Sean Shanahan was arrested last year for allegedly sending sexually explicit text messages to a 14-year-old girl (http://www.infowars.com/tsa-an-army-of-pervs-and-criminals/).

The Boston Herald says that sex charges against TSA workers have also been filed in Virginia, New Hampshire, Nevada, and Georgia, as well as other states. And NaturalNews is aware of at least three additional cases -- one in Pennsylvania, one in Florida, and one in Maryland -- where TSA screeners have been arrested on charges of child pornography.

Scott Wilson, a former TSA worker at Washington International Airport in Baltimore, had his home raided late last year after an undercover agent downloaded child pornography images from Wilson's computer (http://www.thesmokinggun.com/buster/tsa/tsa-child-porn-arrest-759031). Wilson was charged with two felony counts of child pornography.

Thomas Gordon Jr., a former TSA screener at Philadelphia International Airport was arrested in early 2011 and charged with uploading explicit images of underage girls to websites using at least half a dozen phony Facebook aliases (http://www.naturalnews.com/032226_TSA_child_porn.html). According to the allegations, Gordon was actually found posing in his TSA uniform in one of the explicit photos he uploaded.

And Charles Bennett, a former TSA screener at Orlando International Airport in Florida was arrested in 2010 for allegedly molesting a young girl and trying to make her his "sex slave" (http://www.infowars.com).

Being a TSA screener is the perfect job for sexual deviants

As vile as each of these accounts is, they likely represent just a tiny fraction of the sexual deviancy that still takes place within the ranks of the TSA to this day. Each of these instances, after all, represents only those that have been brought to light -- many others, thanks to the TSA's lax "screening" process for its own employees, more than likely remain in their positions to this day.

And if you think about it, what better job is there for sexual deviants than to become TSA screeners? Virtually no other position in society gives them free reign to openly view the naked silhouettes of air travelers as they are forced to walk through naked body scanners, or to aggressively pat down innocent children whose families refuse to have their young ones blasted with toxic radiation in the naked body scanners.
