Rick Case's Pen: Grand Theft Charge Adds to Anti-TSA Ire
Our cover story this week deals with a subject on which pretty much everyone has a strong opinion: the Transportation Security Administration, tasked with frisking, scanning, and searching you before you get on a plane.
When I started reading this article I thought it was a joke. You're telling me that this punishment fits the "alleged crime"? An employee picks up what seems to be a stray pen, not left in "lost and found" but on a cabinet and he not only loses his job but also serves time in jail and faces those type of charges. This is extremely unfair and a waste of time.
Good. All TSA agents need to be prosecuted for any and all crimes to the fullest extent of the law. They should be ashamed of what they do. They are poor excuses for human beings.
