It looks like TSA officers at DFW Airport have become bored with groping genitals and harassing old ladies. Now, they’re up for some good, old-fashioned stealing.
NBC 5 in the Dallas-Fort Worth area reports police arrested at least two TSA officers in a sting operation involving stolen parking passes.
According to the report, the probe began several months ago with an undercover investigation by the airport’s Department of Public Safety. Investigators discovered an American Airlines worker stole 100 parking passes from employee parking lots and recruited TSA officers to sell them for $100 each.
Although only two were arrested, as many as 20 to 40 TSA officers are suspected of being involved.
This is just the latest example of the classless individuals the federal government is hiring to grope us protect us from terrorists.
Last year, Natural News reported the federal conviction of a TSA training officer, resignation of three TSA workers and termination of seven others. They were involved in a bribery scheme at Philadelphia International Airport regarding payments for passing grades on their annual proficiency exams.
And, The Daily Beast outlined numerous other TSA scandals in an April 2012 report, including:
- The indictment of several TSA officers for corruption and drug trafficking at LAX
- The detention of Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) for refusing a pat-down after an “anomaly” with a body scanner
- The strip-search of an 85 year-old woman at JFK International Airport because she didn’t want to go through a scanner due to her defibrillator
- A sexually-suggestive note left in a woman’s bag after an officer found a “personal item” in her luggage
Of course, there have been plenty more scandals involving this arm of the fascist federal government. In that sense, it should come as no surprise that DFW TSA officers have been busted for unethical behavior.
Let’s hope that, one day, they’re arrested for violating our 4th Amendment rights – something that could actually get the TSA parasite out of our lives – and pants – for good.
