Four current and former security screeners at Los Angeles international airport have been arrested and charged with drug-trafficking and bribery.

The four accepted cash to allow large shipments of coc aine, methamphetamine and marijuana through X-ray machines, the US justice department said.

The charges allege 22 separate payments of up to $2,400 (£1,500) allowed drug-runners to bypass airport security.

A prosecutor said they "placed greed above the nation's security needs".

"The allegations in this case describe a significant breakdown of the screening system," Andre Birotte said.

"Airport screeners act as a vital checkpoint for homeland security, and air travellers should believe in the fundamental integrity of security systems at our nation's airports."

Haven't seen this posted yet. Is this the smoking gun that the TSA is not there for our protection? Usually if someone gets caught doing something illegal, its not far off to think that it wasn't their first time conspiring. Accepting bribes to bring in mass amounts of marijuana, meth, and coc aine. Letting through kilograms of drugs, while strip searching senior citizens for the same exact reason? What's next TSA?

Definitely going to be a blackout on these TSA events


Cue teenagers getting drunk on hand sanitizer. Crazy kids and their legal and extremely dangerous methods of getting high/drunk. Replay and reanalyze for 24 hours on MSM.

Exactly. I mean, the world must not know that the BeaurRats have gotten away with
installing another extremely corrupt agency, filled with criminals, that are allowed
to police the common people.
