Top 20 airports where TSA thugs are most likely to steal your stuff

(NaturalNews) A Freedom of Information Act request by ABC News has revealed the 20 U.S. airports where the most Transportation Security Administration (TSA) employees have been fired for stealing from travelers.

Overall, nearly 400 TSA employees were fired for theft between the years 2002 and 2011. Of the airports ranked among the top 20 in firings, 16 were also among the 20 busiest in the country - although their rank in terms of passenger traffic did not always correspond to their rank in terms of TSA theft. Miami International Airport fired the most employees, even though it is only the 12th busiest airport in the country. And Salt Lake City International, Washington Dulles, Louis Armstrong New Orleans International and San Diego International all ranked among the top 20 in terms of firings, but are not among the country's 20 busiest airports at all.

Every TSA agent is a thief,

collecting a paycheck from the boss tax-thieves in D.C. Don't be surprised that they sometimes do a little extracurricular thieving; once the moral principle that ALL theft is wrong is lost, you can't expect them to have ANY respect for property rights.

And a variation on the same theme: every government schoolteacher is morally unfit to have anything to do with children.

The top 20 statistic

It's interesting when people assume that if people are being fired over it, that it happens more. That might not be the case in absolutely all cases: I'm sure that in a few of those airports, proportionally more are being fired for stealing, whereas those same "employees" might have gotten away with it at another airport. It is good that thieves get fired. I wish they'd be arrested, too.

agreed

In some airports could be organized criminal TSA centered groups operating not just stealing stuff but also allowing for drugs to be passed through.

No surprise about Miami being the most thieving airport.

Not to appear "racist" but I worked for an airline (not in Miami) with a guy from Mexico who stole everything that wasn't chained down.

He would go through people's luggage every chance he had and then supposedly sell the stuff at garage sales.

Everyone knew he did it but even management turned the other way and seemed not to care.

People seemed to give him a pass by saying it was a "cultural" thing since he was Latino.

SO...

...No surprise to me about Miami.

Must be a "cultural" thing.
