TSA Staffed by Crooks A security employee [Frank Ulerio, Jr] at John F. Kennedy International Airport was charged Thursday with stealing $80,000 in cash from a checked suitcase headed for Pakistan, the Queens district attorney's office said. . . Ulerio, a Queens resident, faces charges of grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property. If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison . . . The owner of the money did not declare the cash but . . . said he was never asked if he had anything to declare and likely will not be charged with a crime.
Those of you who read my blog know my opinion of the TSA, so I will not beat that dead horse. I think their agent's actions speak for themselves. What disturbs me is the fact that the writer of the story felt a need to mention that the owner of the money will not be charged with a crime. Does this bother anyone? Why is the act of traveling with large amounts of your own money something that should be suspect as criminal activity? Why do We the People continue to tolerate the tyrants who pass laws that make ordinary Americans into criminals? _____________________________________________
