TSA agent accidentally pepper-sprays himself and 5 others

I readily admit that it's difficult for me to disguise my utter disdain for one of the most vile, perverted, useless, and incompetent government agencies in existence. You can imagine, then, how hard it would be for me to pass up the opportunity to call attention to this TSA story from The New York Post:
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."

"They were playing around with it," said one Kennedy Airport official.

The screener sprayed five other TSA agents around him, sending all six to Jamaica Hospital and halting security checks at Kennedy for at least 15 minutes, police said.
Just another shining example of how the TSA keeps us safe.
