    And people still think the government cares about us, lol.

    It makes me wonder that if the TSA is this bad on homesoil, the stuff that American government agencies get away with in other countries must be obscene.

    .001% of cops are bad. Therefore, Cops are all bad.

    This is sensationalistic writing meant to drive traffic. The fact that its still being linked only goes to show how catering to a specific type of reader pays off because some people just want to be angry.

    You get fondled by the TSA whenever you go to take a flight in the US. Seems pretty bad to me.

    Show me where you got the .001 police number since we're talking statistics now.

    Where is this figure coming from? BTW, cops an internal police that police the POLICE. If it is such a small percentage then why have an Internal Affairs? :eek:

    I can't believe one would risk losing their job over an iPad. It's ridiculous.

    I don't like to generalize or anything, but it's no secret that TSA and airline employees are known for thieving passengers' property. I, for one, do not trust them. I always make sure to store my expensive property on my carry on luggage. Packing expensive property in checked luggage is not smart.

    To me this just means TSA agents (or any similar security personel) aren't paid enough. These people are supposed to be professionals in a career. What kind of professional would be willing to risk their career for a few thousand bucks on the black market? A highly underpaid one, for whom that few thousand bucks is a big deal.

    I used to work as a TSA officer. I would have never considered stealing someone's belongings. However I did work with a couple of folks lacking ethics. My point is that its not fair to condemn them all.

    That's like saying it is not fair to condemn the Nazi's because a few of them were good and saved some Jews.

    Like security guards paid minimum wage to protect valuable property. What the heck?
    Oh, and the TSA's uniforms are ugly. Where did they come up with that shade of blue?

    It just means that unethical people take every sort of job and the interview process is not good enough to filter them out.

    Just read threads in this forum where someone orders and pays for one phone, but two get shipped. How many people here with no morals say to keep the second phone?

    It's a problem with the degradation of morals in society in the US that will not easily be overcome, and it has nothing to do with how much a person is being paid.

    There's no such thing as morals, regardless of what everyone is taught in Sunday school. Everyone does what they have to in order to get by. Most of us will do the "right" thing when there's nothing to gain from doing the "wrong" thing; plus doing the "right" thing feels good. But if you give a guy a terrible job, no respect, unlivable wages, and practically nothing to lose, you can't act surprised when he takes some bread home with him.

    Rules of ethics only work when people have something to lose. We talk about TSA agents like they are scum, worst human beings. What do they have to lose?

    Convicted TSA Officer Reveals Secrets of Thefts at Airports

    http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/convi...als-secrets-thefts-airports/story?id=17339513

    It's not wages, it's just greedy jackasses and it goes all the way to the top. They would be a perfect fit with Halliburton in Iraq pillaging.

    Excuse me?

    No such thing as morals? I feel very sad for you.

    You watch way too much TV.

    These thieves are nothing more than thieves.

    They are clearly not starving, living on the street, stealing bread to keep their children alive.

    It is important to know that the average TSA screening goons are not police officers. According to the TSA, screeners receive an absolute joke of just 120 hours of training time. Police officers on the other hand typically need at least 4 years of college to even be considered for the job, and then pass a several month 24/7 training academy.

    What? Either the official purpose of the TSA has changed or you don't know how to do comparisons.
