    WTG TSA! Another wonderful success story. Ah,ya gotta love em though...Or do ya?


    Two Transportation Security Administration officers who admitted stealing $40,000 from luggage at a New York City airport are going to jail.

    The Queens district attorney’s office says 44-year-old Coumar Persad and 31-year-old Davon Webb were sentenced Tuesday to six months in jail and five years’ probation. Both had pleaded guilty to grand larceny, obstructing governmental administration and official misconduct.

    The two TSA officers were based at John F. Kennedy International Airport.

    Authorities say they swiped the cash after spotting it in a piece of luggage while it was being X-rayed in January 2011. The cash was recovered from their homes.

    Persad’s attorney has said his client understands he made a mistake and wishes to move on with his life.

    I suspect we'll be hearing a whole lot of that 'Blame the Victim' stuff,which has become so popular on this Board lately. But the blame falls squarely on the TSA. They're the criminals.

    They were simply taking back the money that had been wrongfully withheld by this "rich" person who had stolen it in the first place.

    No question the TSA folks are to blame, but it's pretty high up on the stupidity meter IMO to have $40k in checked luggage.
