Hundreds of TSA officers have been fired for stealing, despite the fact that most of their theft victims have almost zero recourse once an item has been stolen.
Click below to see the rare ABC story worth viewing. Staffers tracked an iPad, using GPS and alarm features, from airport security in Orlando to the home of the TSA officer, Andy Ramirez.
Ramirez is of such low quality that he has been shown to have
1) transported an iPad which is not his from the airport to his home, apparently unaware that these devices are loaded or can be equipped with tracking, file wiping, and various other anti-theft features.
2) denied having it after ABC personnel announced that they had tracked it to his home via GPS
3) blamed the theft on his wife after the alarm was set off
Your Transportation Security Agency spends your tax dollars on such cowardly idiots as Ramirez.
The good senator is already an enemy of the TSA, and perhaps they were trying to show him who is boss by making him miss his flight to Washington DC. Senator Rand Paul scheduled to speak at the big Right to Life Event in Washington DC, and vote in the Senate today, but his schedule was interrupted by the gropers in Nashville.
A scanner indicated a glitch at his knee, and Paul lifted his trouser leg to expose the area. But that was NOT enough. The TSA officials wanted to grope the rest of his parts too. Rand Paul declined and was detained for some time. After a subsequent scan revealed no problems, the Senator caught a later flight to his destination.
This earned the Transportation Security Agency more bad commercials from Rand Paul’s father who is running for president.
Rand Paul himself has always opposed the over reach of the TSA, calling them clueless for targeting six year old kids, the disabled and others who are obviously not terrorists.
John Mica, Florida Republican is embarrassed by the TSA created in one of his bills. He’s chairman of the House Transportation Committee, and says that TSA should be scrapped and privatized.
The Transportation Security Administration has grown into a 9 billion dollar disaster, with rampant mismanagement of funds and resources, as well as questionable workforce which has become known for thievery and abuse.
Here’s Mica’s short list of the countries which run airport security using similar models as the U.S.: Bulgaria, Romania, Poland, and maybe Libya. That tells you something, doesn’t it?
