Here is an update on the incident with Clayton Keith Dovel.
Clayton Keith Dovel, 36, of Bedford, Texas, was sentenced by state District Judge Sharen Wilson to three years’ deferred-adjudication probation, which means that he will not have a conviction on his record if he completes the probation without incident.
Think about that for a second, Clayton Dovel knowingly and willfully abused his position and victimized the American people and for his crimes his record will remain clean. He took the job and used it specifically for his own personal financial gain and got caught.
Dovel paid restitution of $4,746, split among six victims whose iPads were stolen as they traveled through DFW Airport. The restitution was paid before the guilty plea as part of a deal with prosecutors.
So Clayton Dovel had to pay out to replace the stolen property. His biggest mistake here was that he got caught and that is exactly what this punishment is. You got caught son, so pay back what you stole, stay clean for 3 years and then feel free to try again.
There is a reason there are pedophiles, thieves, and other predators working for the TSA. No one is punishing them. The TSA “zero tolerance” policy is a huge joke, doubly so when after committing a crime the rest of the legal system breaks down on holding them accountable.
So given the above, lets ask another question, why do we need them when we also have incidents like the following?
The TSA’s bungling reached a new low yesterday when a JFK Airport terminal had to be evacuated and hundreds of passengers marched back through security screening all because one dimwitted agent failed to realize his metal detector had been unplugged, sources told The Post.
At least they caught their mistake, but you mean to tell me that absolutely no one that got through security got on a plane and took off before the mistake was noticed? The TSA is A Security Theater, period, no exceptions. They do absolutely nothing to increase security and their effect is purely a placebo for sheep too trusting to understand how futile the TSA’s efforts are.
Clayton Dovel is nothing more than a shining example of why the TSA should have been disbanded yesterday. Doubly so since our legal system and government is doing nothing to limit the power of these tyrannical blue handed goons.
