World Series
hero Sergio Romo was handcuffed New Year's Day at the Las Vegas airport  ... TMZ has learned -- after allegedly becoming belligerent with a TSA officer.

Law enforcement sources tell us, the San Francisco Giants pitcher was detained by cops because he couldn't provide the proper ID to clear security.

We're told Romo then got into it with a TSA agent -- becoming "angry and aggressive."  Cops then swooped in and cuffed him.

Romo was taken to the police station at the airport , where he was cited for violating airport rules and then released. Romo was not allowed to fly following the incident, and was subsequently escorted off airport grounds.

According to law enforcement sources, Romo appeared to be under the influence.

Not a good week for athletes named Romo.

I witnessed this. Sergio was shouting that Harvey is a shill for Kris Jenner (tm) and Sara Jessica Parker needs to pony up some cash for her makeup artist's legal issues.

TSA has molested more children than Jerry Sandusky.

Last month TSA in Dallas detained a sick 12 year old in a wheel chair, denied her mother access to her and traumatized for an hour before suddenly letting he crying girl go.

Perhaps TSA can explain how any of this is keeping us safe when TSA screeners haven’t caught or even identified one terrorist after 11 years and over $80 billion in funding.

We would like to know how having 104 TSA workers arrested in the last 24 months including 15 arrested for child sex crimes, 30 for theft, 12 for smuggling and one for murder is acceptable.

Can TSA explain how having over a dozen screeners smuggling drugs and guns through our airports in the past 24 months is essential to airport security?

Maybe TSA can explain how keeping a known pedophile, Thomas Harkin, working at Philadelphia airport six months after he was exposed is keeping our skies safe.

Or how humiliating and exposing a dying woman’s feeding tube at the checkpoint despite her request for a private screening is preventing a terrorist attack.

Can TSA explain how pulling the dress off of a 17 year old on a church trip and exposing her breasts to her classmates and everyone at the checkpoint is protecting her?

Maybe TSA can explain how stealing our property is going to prevent another 9/11.

No planes were hijacked between October 2001 and November 2010 without groping children, strip searching women and stealing our property. No malls have been bombed or attacks made on sports events and TSA is nowhere near those venues so they can't be credited with protecting airports either These abusive procedures weren’t necessary then and aren’t necessary now.

This agency has become a national disgrace and is endangering more people than it protects. It is long past time for TSA to be replaced with a sensible system staffed by reputable workers, not criminals.

TSA has done more damage to our freedoms than Al; Qaeda could have ever hoped to do.
