TSA Screener Hurls Cup of Hot Coffee at Pilot

Who doesn’t like a complimentary cup of coffee?

Well, here’s one instance where it wasn’t appreciated.

The New York Post reports that a Transportation Security Administration screener was arrested on March 28 at 5 a.m. for throwing a cup of hot coffee on an American Airlines pilot.

The Post reported the incident happened when off-duty pilot Steven Trivett, 54, was exiting a terminal and overheard a conversation peppered with plenty profanity.

Trivett asked them to tone it down and “conduct themselves more professionally in uniform and not use profanity or the n-word,” a source told the Post.

One screen told him to butt out.

When he tried to grab at the ID tags of screener Lateisha El, 30, the Post reported, that she tossed the cup of coffee on him.

The Post reported that Trivett wasn’t serious injured and El was given a desk-appearance ticket on harassment and misdemeanor-assault charges.

The petition, started by the liberal Progressive Change Campaign Committee, echoes a letter Democratic Sens. Richard Blumenthal (Conn.) and Charles Schumer (N.Y.) sent to the Justice Department last month.

To the DEA: Welcome to Bulgaria.

The agency has opened an office in the city of Sofia, according to the FOCUS News agency.

UThe opening of an office of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in Bulgaria is a sign for strategic partnership and cooperation between the US and Bulgaria,” Bulgarian Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov said at the official opening of the office in Sofia, according to the news agency.

“It is highly important that the opening of a DEA office in Bulgaria will strengthen the country’s role in the neutralisation of drug trafficking rings and now we become a much securer and more reliable external border of the EU, since Bulgaria has a geostrategic location in the Balkans,” Tsvetan Tsvetanov said.

DEA chief Michele Leonhart, who attended a ceremony in Bulgaria for the opening said: “The opening of a DEA office in Sofia is very important, because our access will allow us expand our activity in the region and other countries.

New Orleans Cops in Danziger Bridge Shooting Get Whacked at Sentencing

By Allan Lengel

A group of New Orleans cops convicted in connection with the shootings at the infamous Danziger Bridge got whacked at sentencing on Wednesday in U.S. District Court in New Orleans.

Four of the officers got sentences ranging from 38 to 65 years in prison. A fifth officer, who was just involved in the cover up, got six years, the Justice Department announced.

The sentencing capped an ugly chapter in New Orleans history.

Days after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the cops were involved in the shootings of six civilians. Two of the civilians died.

“We hope that today’s sentences give a measure of peace and closure to the victims of this terrible shooting, who have suffered unspeakable pain and who have waited so patiently for justice to be done. The officers who shot innocent people on the bridge and then went to great lengths to cover up their own crimes have finally been held accountable for their actions,” Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division Thomas E. Perez said in a statement. “As a result of today’s sentencing, the city of New Orleans can take another step forward.”

U.S. District Court Judge Kurt Englehardt the long sentences as follows:

  • Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, 40 years.
  • Sgt. Robert Gisevius, 40 years.
  • Officer Robert Faulcon, 65 years.
  • Officer Anthony Villavaso,38 years.
  • Sgt. Arthur “Archie” Kaufman, 6 years.
