    You know when you go through airport security, and they're all, "Put everything in the plastic tub, sir...SIR. I said EVERYTHING. YES, that includes that priceless pocket watch that belonged to your great-grandfather. What is that, anyway? A Breguet No. 5 housed in 18-karat yellow gold etched with a barleycorn guilloché motif? Yeah. That's what I thought. Real pretty piece o' clockwork you got there, buddy. Now put the damn watch in the tub before I call over Big Bob and his box of surgical gloves. You're holding up the line."

    Anyway, a 31-year-old TSA officer who worked at LAX, was arrested May 10th for stealing something — it's not clear what yet — from a traveler's suitcase. He's currently free on $20,000 bail.[/p]

    I'm not shocked at all. The bail should have been higher.

    It's posts like this that make me question the average intelligence on this site.

    My money is on jewellery, or money? I would blow my lid if this happened to me so I hope he/she loses out as much as the person he/she stole from did.

    I remember seeing something like this on the news one day. Airport baggage handlers were caught on security cameras going into work with little to nothing in their hands and coming out of work with big garbage bags full of stuff. What the did the airport do? They said, "We are not responsible for lost or stolen items." [​IMG]

    At least that TSA person had an action taken against him for doing what he did. He should have become a baggage handler instead, apparently.

    The airport is not responsible because they have an outsider (TSA) to do security checks, thus taking off the liability from them. The TSA are part of the Department of Homeland Security

    It is posts like this that detract from the subject and insult someone else's intelligence based on a fun and on topic comment that really show some people for the troll they really are.

    im sure it was worth much more than 25,000$ ; since whoever bailed him out wouldn't have if it weren't
