Transcript for TSA Agents Fired
The new scandal facing security agents. The new video, what some agents are accused of doing as you pass through security. ABC's David Kerley covers aviation. Reporter: In video obtained by ABC news, a female officer unseen manipulates a scanning machine so that travelers a male tsa officer found attractive would be sent over to him. He's seen inappropriately patting down those male passengers, at least ten cases over several months. The two Denver officers fired in March, but not prosecuted. Just last week, a tsa supervisor at Laguardia airport allegedly fondles a young woman. That officer also fired, facing charges. All leading some to wonder if tsa may have to examine the way it screens its screeners. Today the head of the tsa said employees are held to the highest standards. Do these cases suggest that you have to change the way you screen to hire officers? I think what it suggests is that, uh, occasionally you have some bad apples in your employment. Reporter: But it's not just tsa officers. Look at this in San Francisco. That is a civilian wearing a blue shirt, posing as a security officer, calling over two women, taking them into a small room for patdowns. 12 minutes go by. Finally one of the real officers from the private security company knocks on the door. The man is arrested, but he too is never prosecuted because neither of the women complained. The company covenant says the airport took corrective action, more broadly, the tsa believes that training and zero tolerance will cut the number of these incidents. David Kerley in Washington, thank you.
