There were 39 TSA employees arrested in 2013 including 3 for sex crimes, 1 for child pornography, 3 for smuggling, 17 for theft, 1 for murder, 2 for assault and 12 for gambling. These are just the ones who were caught and reported in the news, which based on other crime statistics implies that this is just the tip of the iceberg. Based on the standard 20% arrest rate for criminal activities, the real number is closer to 200 incidents, which is consistent with the hundreds of theft complaints that TSA refuses to address.

The media has been happily reporting all of the legally owned and carried handguns that TSA confiscated, so why aren’t they reporting a year end recap of the TSA crimes and abuses by instead of promoting this garbage?
