Just over six weeks into the year there have already been five TSA workers arrested, two complaints of unlawful strip searches and one charge of sexual assault by TSA screeners. This comes a week after a TSA screener revealed the rampant abuse of passengers by employees of the agency.
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.
There have been 136 TSA workers arrested in the last three years including 21 arrested for sex crimes including 16 involving children, over 35 for theft, 13 for smuggling drugs and guns through security and two for murder.
This is what we get when we “Federalize to Professionalize” as championed by convicted Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, D-S.D.
