I'm sensing high levels of douchebaggery here. If you're an OFF DUTY pilot (per the article), you're not a %^&damn "TSA officer". And if you're so scared ****less of brown people that you have to carry a firearm in the (locked, secured, screened) cockpit, you're looking for a fight anyway.Trivett then identified himself as a “TSA officer” who is an armed pilot.
So, if somebody is talking unprofessionally, who is NOT your co-worker, and NOT to you until you butt into it, that gives you the right to touch them or grab at something worn on their body? I'll bet charges are dropped against her in return for her not filing assault charges on him. Regardless of what was overheard, or said to him, *he* made it physical.When he tried to grab at the ID tags of screener Lateisha El, 30, she pushed him and tossed a “full cup” of hot coffee on him, police say.
