  • TSA's Failed Employment Screening
    TSA is a corrupt and abusive agency and is doing nothing to improve the quality of its workforce. Just this week a local TV station discovered that TSA has employed a pedophile ex-priest employed as a Supervisor at PHL for a decade despite three background checks in that period. Last month they molested three children, a ten year old with a diabetes pump, a four year old who hugged her grandma and a seven year old with cerebral palsy, twice! They also sexually assaulted a Congressman, molested an elderly couple and robbed them of $300, closed two terminals for security errors and four TSA screeners were arrested for smuggling drugs through LAX. To top things off they lied to Congress and tried to destroy $200 million in new equipment to conceal their wasteful spending. A report from Atlanta indicates that they are allowing airport workers to operate in secure areas of airports without completing background checks and Congress took them to task for not reporting half of the security breaches at Newark.. There were a total of 91 TSA workers arrested in the last 18 months including 12 arrested for child sex crimes, over 25 for theft, ten for smuggling and even one for murder. Crime, abuse and incompetence is so widespread in TSA that even Kip Hawley, the last TSA Director, has called for its overhaul. If this is an example to TSA professionalism it is time to replace the agency in its entirety and prosecute its employees and management for criminal malfeasance.

  • DHS
    Boarder Patrol Agents do things like those mentioned because the pay is not compensatory to the job they perform. If they are not just plain greedy, a descent wage in proportion to the job they perform would take a measly $200 to $1000 bribe off the table. Hard economic times make small change very inviting to someone whose life is on the line everytime they are performing their job. Patriotism does come at a price but the real question is what price? This is something we should be address on every level of government.
