In the first two months of this year, a TSA baggage screener in Orlando was arrested for stealing valuables by hiding them in a laptop-sized hidden pocket in his jacket and selling the goods on Craigslist.

He sounds fat.

How the hell do you go through the checkpoint and not notice your laptop is missing? They make you take it out and put it in a separate tray.

If I put my laptop in the machine and when the tray came through 45 seconds later without my laptop in it, I am pretty sure I would (a) notice and (b) scream like a banshee that some farking TSA crook stole my farking laptop until I got it back.

Well, I think the lesson learned here is quite clear: don't bring any electronics or items of value with you when you travel.

Problem solved.

Ah-freaking-men. If it doesn't come through I would be screaming to high heaven. A good laptop is worth more than airfare, even if you add bag fees.

The agency says it has a zero-tolerance policy for theft and terminates the contracts of all thieves within the TSA. In the past ten years, almost 400 TSA officers have been fired for stealing, 11 of which were fired this year.

And how many of them were arrested? Imprisoned? Here's an easy way to stop this tomorrow: make any instance of theft by an on-duty TSA agent a felony punishable by a minimum 10-year prison term. Punishments for misconduct by on-duty police, government officials, etc., should be similar. Society must hold so-called authority figures to a higher bar.

Then they just taser you, drag you off into a side room with no witnesses, charge you with causing a riot or attacking a government official or some other such bullshiat, and then enjoy slapping their gloves on and cramming their whole fist up your ass to check for explosives. After you get out of jail you will find yourself on the No Fly list.

That makes sense. I guess the lesson is don't check anything of value.

A few days ago in the aerodrome the TSA happened to have a shift change while I was awaiting a full body scan. One of the incoming TSA dudes was wearing a backpack. They all went jovially through the regular metal detector. Detector went off when backpack guy went through it. Not a single fark was given. Smiles and "hellos" were exchanged all around. The new crew was officially on-duty.

What was in that backpack?

/don't even get me started on how local law enforcement peeps casually walk through security screening zones with their live-assed Glocks on their hips )and whatever other weapons are strapped to their legs(

//are they above being paid off to leave some pistols around for Atta's son and crew?

Since the TSA has no actual authority to touch me let alone arrest or detain me, no. I don't think so.

Look, TSA sucks enough balls as it is without having to make shiat up out of whole cloth.

It's doubly aggrieving because the whole thing is a waste of time and money. As taxpayers, we are footing the bill for being involuntarily harassed, delayed and having our shiat stolen. Exactly what OBL wanted.

Don't pack anything that looks good, including expensive clothes. If you have those, wear them. Well, at least none of my bras and panties have ever gone missing...then again I have n't done a lot of screening and I don't bring lacy.
 
2012-10-09 07:45:47 PM  
You're gonna miss your flight but by gods, call the REAL law enforcement.

Somehow.

Maybe I should go chat with the local po-po and see what they think.

How many times have you heard TSA page someone to come back for their laptop? Me, many, perhaps every 5th time I've been in an airport. Wouldn't be hard for a crooked screening team to simply put it aside - if the person comes back, hand it to them, if they board without it then take it home. They'd net several pieces of resalable electronics per shift.

Also, if I'm travelling long distance and checking a bag, then I'll put the laptop in the checked luggage. Maybe I should scuff the case up a bit :)

So you've never experienced jerks tossing the bags around looking for their own, missed your bag because some family has all six of their kids lined up and won't let you in, or had to chase down a thief who "accidentally" walked off with your luggage?

Lucky.

By the time the plane touches down, I'm ready to boot it the hell on out of there, anyway. Anything between me and the exit = no bueno.

Since 9/11 I have driven to Canada and Mexico and to the east coast from Iowa and of course back. I will be going to Vegas soon and I will probably drive there also but the wife wants to try Amtrak. I used to fly a lot, but not any more.

I like packing weird stuff in my carry on that might trigger a hand search. I put the items (wrapped in a bag) in a separate compartment with all my dirty socks and underwear.

Sometimes I make comments while they are searching for the hidden treasure...It's fun!
