And so we add another chapter to the never-ending story of our beloved TSA's exploits and escapades.


A former TSA agent has admitted helping a man accused of running a drug ring repeatedly evade security and smuggle money through the Buffalo Niagara Airport.



She would steer them away from security lines where body image scanners or pat-downs might detect large sums of cash and escort them to their gates to they would not be pulled aside for random inspections, it was claimed.
Walker was arrested in March. On Friday, in federal court she admitted helping Derek Frank, who is also charged and accused of running a drug operation, of avoiding security checks.

Female TSA Agent...

At first glance it would seem this is just one more among many stories of TSA corruption and hatred for America and its inconvenient constitution. But somehow, all of these debacles are going to add up to more and more oppression for the American people. And less and less freedom in our daily lives everywhere we go.

It would seem to be inevitable. Another nod goes to Mr. Orwell.

You need to include a link when you quote material.

We can't verify what your saying is true if you don't.

ahhhh there it is

when they finally come across a real criminal, they let them go


where's the logic

So why are you attibuting this to the whole department of TSA? Sounds like one individual breaking the law and who got caught and is being prosecuted.

People in other lines of work also break the law but you don't seem to be making threads about them for some reason.

and what about all the other incidents?

no matter how unfair this might seem to you, it does reflect TSA as a whole.

This thread isn't about other incidents. Suppose there was no TSA and just regular security and this lady still did this same thing? Would there need to be a thread about it?

This lady's criminal activity has nothing to do with TSA or it's policy's. There is enough to criticize them on without stretching un-related events.

on that note, where are the ones that are going above the call of duty and catching criminals like this? where has the tsa done that?

once more tsa have aided aided criminals than have stopped them, it starts looking like the whole department is at risk, no?

This is the same ridiculous argument people make when only "one" police officer abuses his authority and someone dies because of it. People say, "It's just one bad cop don't blame all police." Yeah it is just one cop.... per day. After a few years the number of complaints of police abuse number in the 1000s, so it's a real issue that needs to be addressed and not blown off as just one isolated incident.

We hear many stories about the TSA agents breaking laws and abusing authority, it isn't just this one individual, it's this one individual being reported "today", tomorrow there may be another story.

Understood but this has nothing to do with TSA policy. This lady probably would have acted the same way if there was just regular security there.

i disagree.

she, as a TSA agent, should be stopping these people.
i thought TSA was created to increase security at airports?
that includes catching drugs-smugglers and the likes, if she fails to do so, she violates TSA policy, because she knew.

ETA:

HOLD THIS POST


was she working as an TSA agent at the time of helping this criminal?
the acticle doesn't make that clear, or i'm just reading bad.
if she was, my post still stands

Kro32, from my perspective, you seem to like being contrary almost to the point of trolling at times. And I'm not going there today. You and I will just have to agree to disagree on this one.

ETA: If I can wax a little philosophical for a moment: A tree is known by the fruit it produces. And the TSA has proven time and again they produce nothing but rotten lemons.

What other people are sexually molesting passengers, arresting them for non compliance and radiating them before they get onto a plane.

Tell me that and I'll tell you why there are threads about the TSA.

So if an employee of a company is involved in illegal activity you will blame the entire company on being corrupt? I doubt if you will find any organization, company or anything that hasn't had someone arrested for doing something illegal.

kro,

Many times I disagree with you, but this time you have it directly on point. And I must give you credit for this.

One agent breaking the law is not a reflection on anything other than that one agent.

For those who disagree let me ask you this.

Because one black man commits a crime, is that a reflection on every black man or black men in general?
Because one mother abuses her children, does that incriminate all mothers?
Because one Mexican is an illegal immigrant, does that mean that every Mexican is?

I knw someone will point out that I am being verly extreme here, but I am not. This is the exct argument that the anti-TSA crowd is using.

They don't want to be lumped in with those who the TSA are trying to detect, but they will just as soon lump all of the TSA agents with this one criminal

Typical stereotypical behavior and far FAR from intellectually honest.

Those are valid concerns but unrelated to helping smuggle drugs. There are many organizations and company's who have employees smuggling drugs but you don't hold the entity they work for responsible.

Wow I think I totally agree with you on something.... Maybe it's the final sign of the apocalypse??? lol

This lady is corrupt to the core. It is coincidental she works for a majorly flawed government agency, which IMO is way too "big brother". Had she been working at the 7-11 she probably would have been giving free slurpies to her friends.

no i don't.
but my overall opinion about said company will change in a negative way.

furthermore i challenge you on your second notion.
i can point to a dozen of companies that made it the 'legal' way without any rotten apples.

How many TSA agents have you seen that DON'T look like they come from crime-ridden areas? This story is not that surprising
