Just this week an ABC sting operation resulted in the arrest of TSA screener Andy Ramirez who stole the iPad from an Orlando checkpoint. One week earlier, TSA screener at Ft. Lauderdale, Andrew Smeal, was arrested for child pornography. He had been hired by TSA a month before while he was under investigation by the FBI. Clearly TSA is not properly investigating employees.
There were 100 TSA workers arrested in the last 21 months including 13 arrested for child sex crimes, over 27 for theft, 12 for smuggling contraband through security and one for murder.
TSA allows a known pedophile, Thomas Harkins to remain employed as a TSA Supervisor in Philadelphia five months after his past was exposed.
