My friend works for TSA. She started a few months ago, saying it was just a paycheck until she gets hired as a cop. I wonder if she still thinks that way. She'll be getting good at field searches and pat-downs, that's for sure!

The pat downs I've seen some TSA agents do in person and on Youtube would land a cop a civil rights violation.

Need some opinions...


My "plan B" department's hiring process is running considerably ahead of my "plan A" department. Plan B was applied with before plan A was even hiring. Otherwise I wouldn't have even applied because its not a place I really want to work (its a SO which means lots of politics, BS details and lower pay) and definitely not a place I want to live.

Plan A is a large city PD (by all indications a great agency) that pays upwards of $8k a year more and is somewhere I would love to work and settle down. Only problem is that their testing process is going to be a month or more behind plan B. (at the moment the GF is more likely to be able to get a job in this area as well)

Here the question: Should I even bother to test for plan B considering that I don't want to work there and that considering the time difference I'll probably have to drop out of their process anyway if I intend to pursue plan A?


I feel like its 4th and goal and a field goal isn't an option...I'm either going to win or loose.:supergrin:

When TSA came out I thought it might be a good thing. Now, without being irritated at the people who do the work that they are ordered to, I think it would be best to have something like this done primarily done at the state level, to the local level, with it being administered by the states, as to that type of security function. TSA on the other hand could stay involved in things like security on the airplane, or helping a company to maintain adequate security on an airplane, and being involved with other interstate and international matters concerning TS. For that matter they could increase coverage to having agents on buses, and be watchful of activity there, especially since that is how a lot of the prison releases travel. They could leave railroad security to the railroads as they have been doing that for years. Over federalization of activities has never been a real good thing for this country, yet look at how we have been willing to accept it.

That is the usual for just starting out in a federal agency, or going from one federal agency to another; with few exceptions. Especially at the lower pay grades. However, if you get yourself involved with the BOP and stay a couple of years you will be able to save up money for a move a little bit easier and be able to do that. Along with that with the present tax regulations you actually make a lot of your travel relocation expenses back when moving from one job to another. I unfortunately didn't have an astute CPA to look at things after my first year here, so I didn't take advantage of that. There are better than H&R Block for those kind of details. They are better for the simpler tax returns.

I don't see anything good ever coming from TSA. They are just federalized security guards and were a knee jerk reaction to make the flying public feel better. They are far too thuggish and overbearing for the amount of security they actually provide.

It would be nice if TSA went by the wayside in favor of private security employed by the airports. That would be a nice chunk of change not adding to the national debt.

Well, concerning local security issues that is what I am basically saying. However, there are some issues that are interstate, and should be looked after by the federal government in some things. Airplanes are a mode of travel for going long distances, so that is subject to federal oversight, in that it affects more than one state. Keep an air marshal on there, which is a TSA function.

Same with the buses, in that many bus lines are OTR interstate, and we could call them bus marshals. But, security at a bus station, or a train station should remain a local affair.

Railroad lines have been pretty good at taking care of their own law enforcement and security issues, so I don't think we really need too much federal involvement there, with some exceptions.

There are things that should be looked at concerning all things that affect interstate travel, movement of freight and passengers but the primary duties of law enforcement within the states, including at international airports, international freight areas and what have you should be taken care of by states with some federal oversight concerning areas that affect things like interstate commerce.

But, the trouble with some things is that even though they might have been meant for keeping them limited in their scope of enforcement they have gone beyond their limitations.

We, never did in my opinion have need of a Homeland Security Department, since the FBI are for internal investigations anyway. We did need more cooperation between departments and agencies, which could have been accomplished without a Homeland Security Department. FBI for example was USDOJ administrated; Customs was Department of the Treasury administrated. Yet, both cooperated with each other to the degree necessary before the formation of a homeland security department. With the cooperation that was there before there was in my opinion a better system of checks and balances, in that one department had different duties than another department, but because of the lack of cooperation at some levels you had competing agencies working against each other on what was essentially the same case on the same subject(s). But, with proper liaising that all could have been dealt with.

The railroad police are federal LEOs employed and paid by the railroads, I believe. Airlines and bus lines might be able to benefit by similar programs. Security on the airlines should be left to the companies involved with the feds stepping in only for necessary regulation and when there is an actual crime, but I am one of those minimal government under all circumstances guys.

I agree that we really didn't need Homeland Security. It's one more step in the bureaucracy to complicate things. If the fed agencies were a little less concerned with who has the larger reproductive organ and more concerned with playing for the same team the communications problem would not be. When the process is simplified there is less opportunity for things to go wrong.

Me and the woman celebrated our one year anniversary tonight. Dinner at Texas de Brazil, which was very good. I would be open to going again. After that we saw Born to Be Wild at the IMAX. Then spur of the moment we decided to ride out to the observatory. We saw some good shots of Saturn and three of her moons and could see the craters on the terminator line on the moon. Then saw the binary star pairs that make up the North Star and the middle star of the Big Dipper handle. Orion nebula and the M37 star cluster. And we got there just in time to see one of the brightest flyovers of the ISS they had seen in a while

Supposedly all their meat is prepared Brazilian style. It was good, better than most places you can get steaks, but completely within the realm of making myself. But I would never grill filet mignon for myself, let alone an "all you can eat" amount.:supergrin:

I remember being lectured by a RR copper and I thought he said they were federal certified and work for the railroad.

Yeah, I like corrections a lot, but at the same time, I like the idea of CBP. So I figure I'll stay on the CBP register for here locally, and try to go to BOP right now. If nothing else, I have a good federal position, with a lot better pay and benefits than I have now.

That's what I thought. At my agency, we have a pretty decent relationship with the state police, who would investigate anything like that in our facility, assisted by our internal affairs officer (a correctional captain). I can't imagine what would happen with a similar situation on a railroad right-of-way, especially in an area where there's considerable friction between the agencies involved.

It happened some years back when a train hit someone who jumped the crossing and the train derailed, which was carrying,and subsequently spilled a fair amount of metyl chloro isothia something or another. This was near Dow chemical in Midland. I remember everybody and their brother was involved, but nothing was getting done. I will try to dig up something in the archives.

Sounds like par for the course. We had a similar incident a few years back; 2006 or so. Train derailed in the next county south of here. Miraculously, that was actually handled pretty well. The local sheriff was a stand-up guy, and the National Guard's Civil Support Team (WMD/HAZMAT response unit) came in and pretty much took over, with LOTS of support from decent HAZMAT teams from the area. Still was scary, but it seemed to get handled pretty quickly, from what I've been told. I was in either basic or AIT with the Army at the time.

Trick: If you sense a cop will turn around and harass you, find a safe place to pull over QUICK and turn off the engine (and get out and loiter around looking for something in your trunk) before the cop has a chance to turn on his sirens/lights.

If he does not pull you over while the car is operated, he cannot issue a moving violation ticket and cannot technically pull you over for any other type of violation. He can technically try to talk to you, check your papers/license and question you about where you're going and why you stopped. Just tell them you needed to get something from your trunk. They will be hand-tied and either issue you a warning or let you go without saying much. I've saved myself a number of times.
Thanks for the tip. I guess the only that was unsaid was, let him leave first. Unless once he checks/ or warns you, he can not issue you a ticker once you get back in the car.

Conditional offer for GL-6 at FMC Lexington, contingent on a physical/urinalysis and background check. The HR Manager said that we'd probably start the soonest IF class after they get our physical/urinalysis results back.

Sounds very good. You know my name of course, so send me an email as soon as you get on. First initial and full last name at bop dot gov. It shouldn't take long to get to the physical, and the full background check lasts for about the whole probationary year. Make sure any financial obligations have been met, or in the process of being met; check your credit report; check for any past legal history. If you do that you should be able to compare it to what they dig up. Glynco is only three weeks now, but they push a little harder cramming it all in. It used to be four weeks. Rental cars are expensive there so you may want to take your own vehicle if it is allowed. And, watch for the geese. They for some reason prize their Canadian geese there, (unless it's changed). They used to have geese signs up there like a lot of places have for deer and such, lol.

That's how it is with the geese on my national guard facility. I'd planned on driving myself down if I could, if nothing else for the chance to get a bite to eat out on the weekends or something. I just completed the E-QIP, now I just have to get somewhere to print the signature cards and email them back in, sign the conditional offer and submit that, and call and schedule the physical.

Sure miss having a good shot of bourbon. For those who have never had it, never miss it. For those like me who have had it, I do miss it. It's not the alcohol, as I can get that in everclear or whatever. It is the flavors of charred oak that seasons and flavors the bourbon.

I had to go off of it due to taking a new medication that I am on for a little while. I look at a Canadian source and it says you can have a drink occasionally as in on social occasions, but US sources say you should not have any at all. It has something to do with how the interaction of the two, plus my other medications may possibly adversely affect the liver. I'm glad this one new one is temporary.

Meanwhile, I will enjoy a non alcoholic brew that tastes like beer flavored carbonated water.:beer:

The really ****ty thing is the shift supervisor has his back, because he'll pull the same shenanigans based on something he thought he saw on camera right at the end of shift. It's getting rediculous; bad enough that other supervisors are *****ing about it, too.

It should quickly become official. It takes a little time, but it will be done. FMC's are a bit different in that you will learn to deal with more of the sick, and the mentally ill.

At sundown today is Holocaust Remembrance Day, Yom HaShoah. Please take a little time to remember those who were lost to genocide through the ideals of the NAZI party. Please note, that I am also as many Americans are, part German. This is not something to disparage any people group, but to remember an era of history so that this is not repeated amongst our own peoples. This is to encourage also the continued working together of our various peoples for a better tomorrow, and to keep in mind that it is time to wake up those who would hide their heads in the sand concerning the Muslim version of the same that is attempting to make gains in the Western world.

I gave him a cool scrambled egg. Figured there wouldn't be much else he could eat with no teeth that would have all the nutrients an egg has. He devoured the thing.

Have him checked out at a trusted vet, and follow their instructions. Puppy formula if you can find it, or goats milk, and make sure any of the other puppy food is soft. You may want to find a dog sitter for the first month or two. After that he should be OK on his own.

Yeah. With the combination of meds that I am currently taking, until one of the treatments are over with as to taking one medication in particular I have concerns with the liver. Since I want to keep it intact I don't have my usual one beverage a day. According to one Canadian health information site I can have a drink occasionally, (not often), if I feel the urge. So, I have the occasional serving, or maybe a half serving a couple of times in the month. I am glad there is such a thing as non alcoholic beer. I prefer that over soda.

I like the Schlitz that they came back with, the original. It actually has a very good flavour for American beer. I could care less for Bud Light. It is beer flavoured carbonated water. Strohs used to be pretty good, but I have not seen that one for ages. Shiner is my most recent American favourite. Then, there were the pleasant tasting beers from Europe, and Canada, with Mexico having some good selections as well. I have not tried any of the Asian ones yet, except for maybe Tsingtao, nor any of the other various interesting ones out there. I would like another Bier La Garde style.
