Yet ANOTHER TSA Goon Caught Stealing from a Traveler

Why doesn’t Janet Napolitano’s TSA just start using prison inmates to conduct grope downs and naked porno scans of people traveling through US airports? It would save a lot of time and money, and it wouldn’t be a departure from the fact that TSA workers have worked hard to maintain their reputation as thieves, perverts and criminals.
Yet another TSA agent has been caught engaging in criminal behavior. The regularity with which this occurs makes it look like committing felonies is a prerequisite to get a job in airport security.
“A Transportation Security Administration officer at LAX has been arrested for stealing from a traveler’s suitcase,” reports KABC.
“Ryan Driscoll, 31, was arrested on May 10 at Terminal 6. He faces a felony theft charge.”
The case is the 14th in just the last three years (which the TSA admits to) of its workers stealing large amounts of cash and other valuables from airport travelers. Back in February, TSA agents Persad Coumar and Davon Webb were arrested for stealing $40,000 dollars from a check-in bag at John F. Kennedy Airport. They were later discovered to have stolen an additional $160,000 in valuables from people’s luggage, mostly laptops and jewelry.
Just days prior to this case, TSA supervisor Michael Arato pleaded guilty in a federal court to multiple counts of theft, as well as admitting to taking bribes and kickbacks from another TSA worker to “look the other way”, while the agent he was supervising stole more money from travelers at Newark Liberty Airport. Arato stole up to $700 a day from passengers for a staggering eight years before he was caught.

We’ve documented numerous examples where TSA agents have been caught committing crimes both on and off the job, from molesting children, to stealing, to kidnapping, to assault, to drug smuggling. The list of cases is growing to biblical proportions and gets larger with each passing day.
The spoof call where a man pretended to be a sex predator while applying for a TSA job (he was treated seriously by the TSA staffer on the other end of the line), is starting to resemble less of a satire and more how the TSA does business.
Instead of locking up thieves, sex perverts, rapists and pedophiles at great expense to the American taxpayer, the federal government should just put them straight into a uniform and have them fondling 6-year-old girls and searching baby’s diapers for poop bombs.
Efforts by the Texas House of Representatives to make TSA grope downs a felony are not just about protecting our privacy, they’re about protecting us from a sub-human criminal underclass that has been given carte blanche by big government to unleash their predatory sexual and criminal fetishes on the traveling American public.
