I watched a report on this on 7-31 on WGN Channel 9 (Chicago) where they tracked a Ipad to a TSA agents house. The Agent denied that they had it. The Reporter used the Ipad tracking and it started beeping inside the house. Obviously this moron was fired promptly by TSA.
This is what happens when you give people absolute power, you get absolute corruption.
I digress before I start getting vulgar about this crap~
