in all fairness to the TSA, I believe that the "we" in "we steal all the time" was a reference to his racial cohorts, not his co-workers.

Hint: there hasn't been a white guy named "Pythias" since the Parthenon had a roof.

ParaHandy: 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.


You misspelled "NWO"

What a bunch of Freedom hating non-patriots in this thread.

I feel safer.

So, like, who checks their personal electronics anyway? My phone and my tablet (used to be a laptop) are carried onboard with me. If I traveled with an expensive camera, it would be in the carry-on bag as well.

/ baggage theft isn't a new thing - it's just way more precise now.
// why would I want my delicate electronics thrown around anyway?
/// and the TSA is always welcome to paw through my dirty skivvies whenever they want.

gilgigamesh: oren0: gilgigamesh: 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.

These thefts largely involve checked luggage. Good luck proving the contents of your bag.

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


Seriously. I've flown 6 times since 9/11 and have known this before that.

Yeah it sucked then, sucks now, but you live and learn and fit your laptop *and* camera *and* presentation posters into your effing carry ons.

Those non-portable cameras are a biatch to steal, man.

CapeFearCadaver: roadkillontheweb: Glad I have driven everywhere I need to go since 9/11.

Aaaaand this.


Driving is more dangerous. TSA needs a kick in its collective balls, but it's still a safer and faster alternative.

FTFA: Many officers don't care about their work and complain about low pay and being treated badly.

If they wouldn't steal crap and feel up dying people, maybe then they wouldn't GET treated badly.

A number of years ago, probably around 2004 or 2005, I was flying to New York and I had forgotten to take my ToolLogic out of my laptop case (mine was red, not purple). The TSA scanner saw the knife and called over her supervisor. He took it out of my bag, said, "I didn't know they came in red" and put it into his pocket as he walked away. He did not question me about it at all. In fact, I do not think that his comment was even directed at me. He just took it and went on his merry way. I was pissed off that I had "lost" it, but I was grateful that they scanner just let the issue drop and let me go on through.

oren0: 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.


Agreed. "Well I stole nearly a million dollars over a few years and was thus fired. Whoohoo, time to retire!"
I say we up the ante. Intentional misconduct by a TSA agent, as they are an 'active agent engaged in homeland security', is treason.

Your story, along with all the hundreds of other Farkers' stories of the TSA I've read here over the years, are the main reason why I choose to ship all my valuable stuff separately any single friggin time I have to fly.

Some enterprising law firm is going to realize that running national TV ads about their TSA-related practice plus associates hanging around in airports with cell phones ready to run to security = $billions in profits from a yet-untapped market.

If I have to fly again (haven't flown since 2007 and no plans to do so anytime soon if i can help it), I absolutely would pay some on-site landshark a non-refundable $100 deposit to have him ready to give the TSA goons a legal beatdown on demand so I don't have to choose between getting illegally abused or missing my flight.

what a bunch of whiners!       stop flying if you dont like the TSA! and who the heck needs to fly with massive amounts of cash? sucks to be them!"

That was an actual comment someone made on the news website. The government has got it made if people like this farktard keep blaming the victims except those actually breaking the law.
This argument is along the lines of:

"If those women didn't want to be murdered by their husbands, they shouldn't have gotten married."

Or: "If those women didn't want to be raped, they should have worn chastity belts"

Not real comments I've seen but it's the exact same logic.
