TSA goon allegedly dumps human remains on the floor and laughs

From Orlando Sentinel…

John Gross remembers frantically trying to scoop up his grandfather’s ashes and wondering why the Orlando TSA agent who spilled them was laughing.

Moments earlier, Gross’s carry-on bag had passed through an X-ray machine at Orlando International Airport when he said he heard someone call out, “Bag check.”

It was about 7:25 a.m. June 19 and he was booked on an 8 a.m. United Express connecting flight to Newark and then home to Indianapolis with a small glass jar of his grandfather Mario “Mark” Marcaletti’s cremated remains.

But that’s when he said a female Transportation Security Administration agent wearing blue latex gloves opened his bag, twisted open the jar labeled, “Human Remains,” and accidentally spilled at least a quarter of its contents.

“It thought it was routine at first and then I thought, ‘What the hell was she doing this for?'” Gross said Tuesday in a telephone interview with the Orlando Sentinel. “I got upset. She was laughing right at me — not a chuckle — she was laughing.”

Sari Koshetz, a TSA spokeswoman in Miami, said the agency is investigating the incident to find out what happened.
