It’s been awhile since we’ve come back around to the origination that gave me the idea for this list. For a quick history of this type of behavior:
Remember, these are the agents that were caught, there’s going to be a large group that are not caught. The TSA isn’t held responsible for lost and stolen items, they receive a free pass. There is no incentive for them to solve the problem other than bad PR. But we have a new bad agent to add to the list:
TSA baggage screener Sean Henry, 32, was arrested on Tuesday after a sting operation conducted jointly by the TSA and the Port Authority Police Department caught Henry leaving the airport with two iPads that had been planted as part of the sting, as well as numerous other electronics devices he had allegedly stolen from passengers.
I applaud the officers who did the right thing, but the fact is the government has created a situation that foments this type of behavior.
State Sponsored Criminal: Sean Henry
Because why shouldn’t a TSA be able to make some extra off the top from the people they’re already abusing.
