Derogatory 'Jeopardy' board launches TSA probe


STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Managers ridiculed gay men, African-Americans, lesbians, sources say
  • Board was made to look like categories in TV game show "Jeopardy"
  • TSA's Office of Inspection is investigating at the Orlando Field office," statement says
http://www.cnn.com/2010/US/01/30/florida.tsa.investigation/index.html?hpt=T2The board, resembling the TV game show "Jeopardy," includes categories such as "pickle smokers," "our gang" and "creatures," which sources said were names used by managers for gay men, African-Americans and lesbians.
A photograph of the board was sent to CNN. The Transportation Security Administration confirmed the investigation in a written statement but did not elaborate on when the board was in use, where it was displayed or how it was used.
I feel safer already knowing these true professionals, these credits to the honored field of law enforcement, these bastions of integrity, these guardians of our safety are on the job and protecting us from old people, gay men and Jimmy Walker.


Naw.

I've got respect for the real cops, not these police academy washouts who couldn't find a bomber if they were told 6 months in advance, had a picture of him and a description on where he'd shoved the grenade.
