TSA Agent Leaves Grandpa's Ashes Spilled On The Terminal Floor

A man's attempt to bring the ashes of his grandfather home to Indianapolis ended with an angry scene in a Florida airport, with the ashes spilled on the terminal floor.

John Gross, a resident of Indianapolis' south side, was leaving Florida with the remains of his grandfather -- Mario Mark Marcaletti, a Sicilian immigrant who worked for the Penn Central Railroad in central Indiana -- in a tightly sealed jar marked "Human Remains."

Gross said he didn't think he'd have a problem, until he ran into a TSA agent at the Orlando airport.

"They opened up my bag, and I told them, 'Please, be careful. These are my grandpa's ashes,'" Gross told RTV6's Norman Cox. "She picked up the jar. She opened it up.

"I was told later on that she had no right to even open it, that they could have used other devices, like an X-ray machine. So she opened it up. She used her finger and was sifting through it. And then she accidentally spilled it."

Apparently the TSA can't be satiated

Violating the living is not enough. I honestly don't have any hope left for this country given that fact that we haven't been able to get rid of this thug infested organization after two years of previously unimaginable atrocities, and institutionalized sexual violation.

Thanks for a bump

It is hard to understand why this criminal organization is still allowed to operate...after all the abuse that was exposed...and now the move to drones spying all over America -- 1984 is here.

Laughing

I read that the TSA bitch was laughing as he was on his knees collecting ash and bone fragments. I hope she gets her karma, and quickly.

You are right...

She was not just smiling - she was laughing!
Here is that part of the article:

"She didn't apologize. She started laughing. I was on my hands and knees picking up bone fragments. I couldn't pick up all, everything that was lost. I mean, there was a long line behind me."

I hope she gets her karma as well.
Universe sees everything.
