    Does anyone know, since 9/11, where you can find the number of passengers arrested going through security here in the USA vs. the number of TSA staff arrested for stealing from passenger bags?

    Any one want to place a bet on which number is higher?

    From Wikipedia:
    "approximately 500 TSA officers have been fired or suspended for stealing from passenger luggage since the agency's creation in November 2001."

    Didn't come across hard data on total arrests.

    While TSA hasn't caught any terrorists, they do bust a lot of people for carrying drugs. I would guess that number is greater than 500.
     
  4. There have been 62 TSA screeners arrested so far in 2011. TSA has not provided any information in the number of passengers arrested this year, the reports indicate that the number is somewhere around 15-20 in the same period.

    But that isn't, not should it be, their job.

    Didn't you know, comrade? The War On Drugs is every good citizen's job.

    Nice they that catch drug users/dealers, but there job is to catch terrorists. Drug arrests don;t count in my book. If you want to look for drugs, put DEA staff at the airports.
