Another TSA Agent
Accused of iPad Theft

ABC News, by Randy Kreider and Megan Chuchmach

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 12/7/2012 3:05:02 PM

A TSA agent was arrested this week and charged with stealing from passengers traveling through New York´s John F. Kennedy Airport, adding to the long list of TSA officers accused of theft of passenger belongings. TSA baggage screener Sean Henry, 32, was arrested on Tuesday after a sting operation conducted jointly by the TSA and the Port Authority Police Department caught Henry leaving the airport with two iPads that had been planted as part of the sting, as well as numerous other electronics devices he had allegedly stolen from passengers. Just as in a recent ABC News investigation of thefts

Comments:
With two earrings and a hoodie, he looks like a street mugger. This class of muggers is different; object to a probing in progress and you´re the one thrown in prison.

Can´t fix stupid. A phone call or a signal from an iPhone turns an iPad into a paper weight.

Now I understand why the unions, and government, want to include TSA workers. They will fit right in...

The question is: what happens to these "protectors of the People"? Are they tried like "ordinary" citizens and imprisoned, or do they receive favorable treatment because of their exalted status?

Well...the best i can give them is that at leadt they ran a sting operation.

Sounds like they need to send the TSA folk through security screening before they leave work.

#4, I suspect he will slither off into the maze of affirmative action government jobs where prior government work and his color will put him at the head of the line. His seniority probably will go with him. Being special, his record probably will be scrubbed clean.

Wouldn´t it be easier and faster to just list the TSA employees who haven´t stolen -- ´scuse me, who haven´t been caught stealing from taxpayer-travelers yet?

FTA: "TSA holds its employees to the highest ethical standards and has zero tolerance for misconduct in the workplace," said Castelveter in a statement.

Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha--EEP! Ooh, I think I hurt myself.

Looking at this... fellow, something Hillary said comes to mind. So, Hillary, if we "Federalize," we´ll get -- what was it you promised? That was available no other way but by making the screeners Fed employees?

#1: Think further about what you suggest. Should honest taxpayers have to go through all the grief, the [probably uninsured] loss of the device [setting aside all the other items stolen by TSA perps for now], and much more to protect themselves from the depredations of Federal "screeners" whose very salaries those taxpayers provide? Makes no sense at all to me. IMHO, it´s an utter outrage.

Oh -- and it took an outside, private company to bring the extent of TSA criminality so much exposure the Feds could no longer bury it.

Privatize the whole TSA operation with many smaller agencies who will hold their employees responsible.

Get rid of the TSA. These ignorant people definitely do not make anyone safer. They are ignorant, arrogant, and they are thieves. Airport security should be by private companies, and then they can be fired for bad behavior. I fly a whole lot less just so I do to deal with these morons.

I am sure he "didn´t mean nothing by it" and will ask for leniency, consideration of his color rather than character. His union will back him up because of the entrapment. He was only doing this to start up his own investigation of theft, right?

The only reason there are news stories about iPad theft is because they´re trackable, so the agents get caught.

This is only the tip of the ice berg. These TSA crooks need to be submitted to the same surveillance as their victims.

About five years ago in Las Vegas, they stole a gold bracelet from my checked baggage.

TSA = Thieves Stealing from America. They´re all a bunch of thieves or criminals.

But just remember: they´re keeping the airplanes safe for you to fly on.

Do you think any of them could be bribed to let bad guys and bad thinks on the planes? Let;s hope not.

Police are investigating three recent attacks in the city they believe are part of the “knockout" game, in which an unsuspecting person is attacked for no reason with the goal of knocking the person out with one punch. The three attacks this month have occurred in the 700 block of Main Street, the area of 87 Millbury St. and on Chatham near Main Street.

The 3.1 inches of snow that fell Monday night into Tuesday morning brought this season’s total to 94.8 inches, topping the old record of 93.6 inches set during 1880-81.

Nasa has collected more than 200,000 votes from members of the public who are on a mission to help the space agency select the spacesuit of the future. Voting ends at midnight ET on Tuesday for the newest iteration of Nasa’s spacesuit. The competition pits three suits – "Biomimicry", "Technology" and "Trends in Society" – against each other before the winner can be tested in Nasa’s facilities. The winning suit is expected to be built by November will be tested in vacuum chambers, at Nasa’s training pool and a false Mars surface. The Z-2 prototype follows 2012’s Z-1 suit, which

Baltimore — An evening bike ride for a cyclist turned violent after he was attacked by a group of teenagers–and it’s caught on camera. Rochelle Ritchie has more. The man was wearing a helmet with one additional feature his attackers did not know about–a camera positioned on top. Now that video is in the hands of Baltimore City Police, who are combing through the images. It was a dark Saturday evening when Mike Bowman, 32, peddled his way down Guilford Avenue toward Hampden, where he was meeting friends. “There’s a bunch of kids that hang there at Lanvale. Before I

New Jersey budget gap keeps growing

Four days after a downgraded credit rating, New Jersey has more bad financial news: Tax collections were once again short of Governor Christie’s already lowered expectations. This time, the gap was $145 million for March – a full 7 percent short of what Christie projected for the month, according to data released Monday by the state Department of Treasury. That means the Christie administration has to make up that gap with just three months left in the state’s fiscal year, time that includes the crucial income tax collection month of April. Already, the administration has said it cut nearly $700

Nashville, Tenn. — A bill seeking to allow Tennesseans to openly carry firearms in public without permits was overwhelmingly defeated a House subcommittee on Monday night. The House Finance Subcommittee voted 10-1 against the measure sponsored by Republican Rep. Micah Van Huss of Jonesborough, who later told reporters that he will abandon an effort to bypass committees and call the bill for a full floor vote. (Snip) The full Senate had passed its version of the bill on a 25-2 vote last week. The House panel voted down the bill after first adopting an amendment that stripped out projected $100,000

For nearly two decades, Barbara Garnaus maintained a modest, delicate life balance: keeping her part-time Orange County school district job and juggling her bills and credit card debt. Now 63, living alone, she counts every dollar, has no cellphone and commutes an hour in traffic so she can keep an affordable apartment in Laguna Woods. Having good health helped. Garnaus got by without medical insurance, relying on yearly exams at a free clinic. But that changed last year: Garnaus now needs treatment for cancer, and she bought insurance under Obamacare. Thousands of Californians like Garnaus are poised to reap significant

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
