TSA Officer Admits Stealing

And his supervisor was in on it.

From CNN:
A New Jersey Transportation Security Administration officer on Thursday pleaded guilty to federal charges that he and his supervisor regularly stole from passengers during screenings at Newark Liberty International Airport, according to federal prosecutors.

Officer Al Raimi, 29, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Newark. He admitted that for nearly a year, he stole between $10,000 and $30,000 in cash from travelers as they passed through a security checkpoint at the airport.

Raimi admitted that he would "kick up" some of that money to a supervisor, who in turn allowed him to keep stealing. The supervisor, Michael Arato, pleaded guilty earlier this month to accepting kickbacks and bribes.


In one audiotaped conversation, Arato was recorded stating that he didn't feel bad stealing from foreigners because they were "leaving this county with our money," the original complaint states....
If you're traveling via airline, try to secure your possessions, particularly any cash.

So let me get this straight.

The screenings at the airports are to protect travellers from getting blown to bits by terrorists. These terrorists are usually (these days, they're always) Muslims. Yet, you guys have an AL RAIMI screening passengers and people wonder why he would be stealing money?


Alongwith the possibly Muslim TSA agent, you have a dhimmi. Its a great combination! They're leaving with our money!??? Seriously!!??

I love that his name is "Al". It's like he should be working at a Gas station in 1950's America.
