Like any government agency, the Transportation and Safety Administration attracts low-skilled Affirmative Action Blacks and other non-Whites because of the generous benefits and pensions paid for by the taxpayers, and not surprisingly, many of them are criminally minded:
A TSA agent convicted of stealing more than $800,000 worth of goods from travelers said this type of theft is “commonplace” among airport security. Almost 400 TSA officers have been fired for stealing from passengers since 2003.
Pythias Brown, a [Black] former Transportation Security Administration officer at Newark Liberty International Airport, spent four years stealing everything he could from luggage and security checkpoints, including clothing, laptops, cameras, Nintendo Wiis, video games and cash.
Speaking publicly for the first time after being released after three years in prison, Brown told ABC News that he used the X-ray scanners to locate the most valuable items to snatch.
But while Brown believes he might have been one of the worst thieves at the TSA, he imagines the agency’s culture makes it easy for others to do the same. Many officers don’t care about their work and complain about low pay and being treated badly, he claims, which prompts them to steal. To make it even easier to get away with, TSA managers also never search their employees’ bags.
The agency says it has a zero-tolerance policy for theft and terminates the contracts of all thieves within the TSA. In the past ten years, almost 400 TSA officers have been fired for stealing, 11 of which were fired this year.
In February, 2011, two TSA officers were arrested for stealing $40,000 in cash from a checked bag in New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport. Using an X-ray machine, the men found that the bag contained $170,000 and removed some of the money.
Brown was finally caught after selling a camera he stole from the luggage of a CNN producer. When he sold the camera on eBay, he forgot to remove the news networks’ logo stickers.
Anyone who passes through U.S. airport security checkpoints can’t help but notice that a huge percentage of the TSA employees who check your luggage and personal belongings are Black, and whenever that many Blacks are in one place at one time, there will be some sort of crime, even if it’s “trusted” security officers.
And notice how TSA merely fires most of these criminals who are caught stealing–they aren’t prosecuted for theft generally. If they stole from stores, they’d be arrested, but because they are Federal employees, they are given a slap on the wrist and fired. They obviously aren’t arrested because of Black Privilege–that skin condition whereby if you do the crime, you won’t have to do the time.
