    To add insult to injury, airlines expect customers to pay for this “service”.

    They’ll be getting hired by the TSA. They have both the experience and character that the TSA is looking for

    Why are they always non-white?
    You could say, in the ghetto:
    MLK = Mayhem, Looting and Killing

    Nothing new as far as that goes. If you want , you can look at most major airports across the country, And “you know where to look”, you can find easy evidence of bags intercepted before they reach the carocell upstairs, you can look down to the lower level and see bags “schredded” from more than just getting caught up in the rollers of the equipment. Bags are “Raided uptop” for exspencive items, then “thrown down to the floor below!” You look for your bags, but they never came up to your waiting area! Crooks got your exspencive stuff, and let the bag fall below.

    Have seen management at airlines involved in theft. They know exactly “how to”, as one supervisor was “going threw luggage left and right, on the pane. Stuff happens when a drug habit drives you.

  8. Robert S. says:

    Feds caught the guy by the way. They never think they will get caught. The “stuff that goes on”! Prison sentences are too light!

    Lets celebrate Martin Luther Kings birthday again. I have a dream on how to get rich without working.

    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close those bad cases.
    Corrupt FBI and DEA use no-knock warrants to enter suspect’s homes while they are away and steal items.
    They mostly steal watches, jewelry and less frequently expensive prescription drugs by returning a second time and swapping them with fakes.
    Some of them where stealing wear item parts off of cars, swapping them with old worn out parts from their personal autos and in some cases leaving the auto in a dangerous state. They can remove a car from your garage aparently whenever they feal like it. For us common citizens this would be called grand theft auto, for corrupt FBI and DEA employees this is allowed .
