Good job officer. I guess her coworkers are the reason the TSA stands for Thousands Standing Around. Now it all makes sense. HAHAHA

Great job Corporal. Notice how a trained Police Officer reacts without even thinking about it. Now that's training!!

Good Job! Nice to see there's a Sheepdog amongst all of those sheep that stood around and watched.

Bravo to the quick-acting off-duty officer! BRAVO!! Well, she isnt homeless any more! For at least awhile! Perhaps the TSA agents need some training on taking people like that down? Had it not been for that amazing officer, no telling what would have happened. Kudos, and great respect!

TSA agents, being largely affirmative action hirees, are not too bright, not too fit, not too brave. Consider: TSA agents like the "donut woman" who was assaulted, are America's first line of defense against Arab terrorists!

Notice the TSA wanacop on the far right just out of view ,You can only see his blue gloved hands as he WATCHES his co-worker get mugged, so much for team work, it takes a REAL cop to help and effect arrest

If TSA agent wasn't so fat and out of shape she coulda handled herself better. How about some physical requirements for these people 270 solid fat and gonna cut it

I thought the TSA employee did a pretty good job considering. No, she isn't a cop. No, she doesn't appear to be super fit. But, she hung on to that woman for dear life and didn't let her get past the security check point. Once she started getting beat on, she grabbed the woman and didn't let go until help arrived. That's much more than any of her coworkers appeared to have done to keep the airport secure. Kudos to the off-duty officer. It's always a risk to take action like that -- you never know who at your department will use it against you -- and only the brave are willing to do it.
