Is that an iPad in your pants or are you happy to see me? In a TSA officer's case it really was an iPad! He had stole it from a passenger's luggage and stuffed it down his pants. Smooth.
It's not the only thing he stole either! Over a 6 month period, Nelson Santiago, a TSA officer since 2009, has stole $50,000 worth of electronics from passengers traveling through Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport's Terminal 1. That includes computers, video cameras, GPS and more.
What a wonderful job the TSA does policing their own officers, right? No big deal! Not like we can avoid these woefully inept or terribly dishonest people! Santiago probably would still be running this gig had he not been caught stuffing a passenger's iPad down his pants. I know not all TSA agents are pricks but man some of them make it so easy to generalize the lot.
Santiago's been fired. [Brodward Palm Beach New Times]
