    The Guilfordian: Transportation Security Administration agents violate passengers’ trust, steal money and property

    While there are TSA agents who do not steal, the justifications that the accused and convicted TSA agents are offering to the media suggest a disregard for protocol and passenger’s property. Assistant Professor of Justice & Policy Studies Sanjay Marwah identifies a rationale behind this pattern of excuses.

    “I think they were trying to justify their own behavior and argue that many do it to make themselves feel better and rationalize why they did it,” said Marwah. “This is called technique of neutralization in criminology, which you can see in the ABC News interview with them.”

    These responses from TSA agents leave many people feeling uneasy about past and future run-ins with airport security. Among those who feel uneasy are students from Guilford College who find themselves frequently flying throughout the course of a year.

    A small correction, Guilford College is in Greensboro, NC - about a 10 minute drive from my airport.

    Fixed that, as well as the spelling of "Carolina".

    It's refreshing to see that your local kids don't appreciate the "services" you & your colleagues provide, Rugape. There may yet be hope for this country.

    I would have said they violate the passengers and steal their money and property. But maybe that's just my take on it.
