    Another one bites the dust:


    9 years on the job, wonder how many of those years were spent stealing stuff?

    it is astounding they keep trotting out that tired and shallow mantra when obviously the organisation is riddled with liars, cheats, thieves and the incompetent...

    I love this article and this incident:

    http://www.examiner.com/page-one-in...er-accused-of-stealing-after-checkpoint-sting

    1. The local police conducted an active investigation at the TSA checkpoint and arrested the TSA perpetrator as she left the "secure" area with her ill gotten gains. This sets an absolutely fabulous precedent!
    2.
    (Finally someone points to the obvious: TSA employees are in no way "officers." To call them officers deminishes the title of real officers.)
    3. No kid gloves for the TSA in this article.

    Texas is setting a great precedent here. I am totally enamored with the idea of having TSA perpetrators investigated on the job by local authorities, then arrested and charged by those same local authorities when caught committing crimes. This is awesome! It proves the "federal checkpoints" are not "Law and Order Suspension Zones" after all. The perpetrators may not be arrested on the spot, (wouldn't want to interfere with a federal perpetrator in the performance of his/her "duties",) but when s/he leaves the checkpoint it's into the paddy-wagon with him/her.

    I wonder just what species of vermin they do consider them?

    I hope this continues, with loud and public spectacles of TSOs being arrested in front of the traveling public. I also hope some of them respond with "But we're fellow officers" and get laughed at hysterically by the police. Like...an LEO incapacitated, rolling on the floor with laughter, face red, sides aching, etc. Would send a pretty loud-and-clear message to the public that "These blue-shirted geTSApo thugs are NOT NOT NOT NOT NOT police."
