I had two laptops stolen by the TSA years ago. Baggage handlers and TSA agents in NYC and Florida were working together. The rotten TSA agents (redundant?) would identify the bags on their way to Florida with the “good” stuff and the baggage handlers in Florida would then open the bags and get the loot.
That was, at least, somewhat clever.
A TSA thug at the Newark airport, Alexandra Schmid, just swiped $5,000 cash from a passenger like a little kid stealing candy. The silver lining in this is that in addition to putting the agent, Alexandra Schmid (no relation to John Jacob Jingleheimer) the feds are now launching an investigation and have suspended eight workers for misconduct. Their deeds? Sleeping on the job, stealing and failure to properly screen baggage.
The money is still missing.
