I think we can file this one under Derp.
A bumbling TSA agent “playing around” with a pepper-spray container at Kennedy Airport fired the caustic liquid at five fellow screeners yesterday, sending all six to the hospital, a source told The Post.
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.”
If you can’t tell the difference between a bottle of pepper spray and a laser pointer, how the hell are you going to identify actual threats? Furthermore, how did you manage to dress yourself in the morning? Maybe you didn’t.
