TSA Officer Rips Off $500 From Man Who Complained

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) operates under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security. They were federalized under George W. Bush following the 9-11 attacks. Their supposed job is to make air travel safe. In reality, they have demonstrated that they do not make air travel safe, but rather are a nuisance. To add insult to injury they steal from citizens almost daily. One such man who has been convicted of theft is 60-year-old John W. Irwin.

The incident was reccalled by The Virginia Pilot:

According to a statement of facts filed with the court, the passenger advised Transportation Security Administration agents that he had a medical condition and needed to be patted down. The passenger then dropped $520 cash and a pen into a gray plastic bin.

According to the statement, he was also selected for additional screening in a private area. He complained about the screening before agreeing to go with the agent.

Irwin placed the passenger’s cash and pen into a TSA supervisor’s drawer. When the passenger returned from the additional screening, his property was gone, records state.

The passenger asked Irwin what happened to his money, and Irwin told him he had not seen it, records state. The passenger reported the incident to police.

Irwin initially denied to police any knowledge of the money, according to the court statement. He later told police he put the money in his locker, records state. In a statement to police, Irwin wrote, “when the passenger returned and I saw that it was the passenger who had given my fellow employees a hard time. I just didn’t let on that I had the money.”

Becky Akers, writing for LewRockwell.com, notes:

When a passenger complained about the TSA’s singling him out for sexual assault “in a private area” (perhaps the reporter is punning here, but in any case, that “private area” refers to a room, not the victim’s groin), one of his assailants stole $520 from him. The thief admitted that he dropped the money and a pen the gentleman also carried into a drawer; “when the passenger returned [from his ‘private’—- in both senses of the word — molestation],” the gate-rapist wrote in a “police report,” “and I saw that it was the passenger who had given my fellow employees a hard time. I just didn’t let on that I had the money.”

Irwin is set to be sentenced in December.

However, this is not an isolated incident. Ipads, jewelry and a host of other passenger items have been stolen, not to mention the naked body scanners that are a clear violation of privacy by the federal government along with the invasive pat downs and searches. While Irwin was caught stealing $500, watch the fellow below explain how he ripped passeengers off as a TSA agent to the tune of $200,000 a year!
