    Looks like Pissy & Co. might be getting some serious whiplash out of these latest developments ...

    ABC News Radio via East Idaho News: US Airline Passengers Claim TSA Ignoring Their Theft Reports

    Hundreds of air passengers reacted following an ABC News investigation into theft by uniformed employees of the federal agency in charge of airport security, some saying they were victims of theft and were ignored by Transportation Security Administration officials.

    How could there be "hundreds" when TSA never gets any complaints?:rolleyes:

    Regarding Ramirez, the bozo whose wife (yeah, right) coppied an iPad:

    The TSA said Ramirez was fired Wednesday, one day in advance of the ABC News broadcast, in keeping with its “zero-tolerance” policy for theft from passengers. Ramirez was the 381st TSA officer to be fired for theft, according to the TSA, and one of eleven this year alone.

    Is this the first time that TSA has admitted the actual number? ABC confirmed their experiences:

    But when one iPad wasn’t returned from an Orlando airport, ABC News filed a missing property report but no other action was taken. It was only when ABC News tracked the iPad to TSA officer Ramirez’s home that it was recovered two weeks later. Ramirez claimed at the time that his wife had taken the iPad but was later fired.​

    The TSA hires people to violate the interpersonal boundaries of innocent victims day in and day out. It comes as no surprise that TSA thugs steal. Stealing is a minor interpersonal offense compared to what TSA employees are required to do on the job.

    I consider every employee of the DHS(especially the TSA) a direct threat to me, my personal property and my rights. My experiences, the news reports and firsthand accounts, and the TSA's aagressive attitude towards assaulted and aggrieved passengers affirms this.

    I am forced to conclude that the DHS is the greatest threat to the U.S. we've faced in my lifetime. This highly political, thoroughly unprofessional, over-funded standing army is tearing us apart from within. As a result of the DHS's illegal activities we're all less safe, less free and less prosperous than ever before. Their strangle-hold on this nation will prove our downfall. The worse the DHS behaves, the more detractors they garner. Since everyone who recognizes the threat the DHS poses is labeled a "terrorist", this fear-mongering cancer will grow with be permitted to grow larger each time citizens try to scale it back.

    Janet Napolitano, John Pistole and their ilk will wreck this nation from within, blaming "domestic terrorists" and "anti-government conspiracies" every step of the way.

    Every Traveler is treated as a potential Terrorist.
    Every TSA agent/officer employee must be treated as a thief / pervert.

    Paul Sanchez "We already know you, Mr. Sanchez"

    Actually BDO Kathy Larson at COS was specific about that point, that passengers should look at TSA screeners individually rather than collectively based on arrest reports of TSA screeners. I told her I'd be happy to once the TSA stops collectively treating all passengers with suspicion, especially those that take photos of screeners in public areas. Easily the best hour I've every spent with BDO Paul Rose and Kathy Larson at COS. Be sure and take photos of him the next time you are at COS, he was quite insistent that I had no right to take a photo of him in a public area.

    I give no quarter to TSA personnel that like to make up rules to satisfy their emotions.

    I would also include the NSA under this assessment, ever since they've trampled over any number of protections under the Bill of Rights since the passage of the Patriot Act and before. I think it is reprehensible that they are hiding what they are doing in this regard, wrt our communications and financial transactions. Their refusal to come clean has little to with national security and a lot to do with minimizing political fallout.
