WASHINGTON (AP) — Some senior officials at the Federal Air Marshal service made fun of veterans, homosexuals and minorities, creating what employees described as an unpleasant work environment at an agency with a mission that requires operating mostly under the radar, government investigators found.
One example of discriminatory behavior described in a report from the Homeland Security Department inspector general was a mock "Jeopardy!" game board in the Orlando field office. The game designated categories for veterans, women, blacks, Hispanics and homosexuals with derogatory titles, like "Our Gang" for black employees. The report did not go into further detail about the game, only describing it as "extremely offensive." The game's creators do not work at the agency anymore.
