    Hmm, it is normally known as theft.

    I'm surprised states are willing to take this risk, given the 5th amendment implications.

    "...nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation."

    If you find your property at one of these state run flea markets, can you press charges?

    It's often "surrendered" under coercive circumstances. However there are also the dingbats who try to carry large knives, hammers and all sorts of potential weapons through the checkpoint. In those cases, I'm not too worried about them hijacking the plane but I'm also not real comfortable having someone too stupid to read the list of prohibited items sitting next to me with a hammer in their bag.
