As reported in several mainstream media reports today, a TSA supervisor at the ironically titled Newark Liberty Airport has pleaded guilty in a federal court to multiple counts of theft, as well as admitting to taking bribes and kickbacks from another TSA worker to “look the other way”, while the agent he was supervising stole more money from travelers Michael Arato faces a maximum potential sentence of 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for stealing up to $700 per day from passengers for eight years. Arato also allowed another worker to steal up to $30,000 in cash from traveller’s bags over a 13-month period, pocketing a share of the ill gotten gains himself. The court heard that the pair specifically targeted foreign travelers, mostly Indian women, who could not speak English and discussed how they should not feel bad about stealing from them because they were leaving the U.S. with “our money”. Arato was caught pocketing money on surveillance cameras last October when airport authorities began investigating complaints from passengers that their money and valuables were missing after their bags had been searched by the TSA. In one incident, Arato allegedly took a wad of cash and “gave the middle finger to the office security camera”. Sentencing will be passed in the case on May 24. This is just the latest example of how TSA workers are prone to criminal behavior. It is certainly not an isolated incident.

    The airport scanner as it's used in Canada likely would have offered limited security to the victims. I understand there is also a random passenger selection mat that decides who gets scanned vice pat down. Both the scanner and the mat are a waste of tax dollars, and yet another show of follow-the-leader (US) by our federal government. A more cost-effective approach would have been to use sniffer dogs, not only trained to sniff out drugs, but more importantly, explosives. I worked for three years in Iraq. In Camp Slayer, Baghdad, the Australians effectively used lab retriever to sniff out explosives. Consider the cost and the effectiveness of this simple but proved system. A well trained dog can sniff out explosives even if encased in a metal or other container, and readily on the carrier's personal belongings. One day we may see the light and make air travel safe and somewhat convenient again.

    Pam. If it wasn't for airport security I'd have no sex life at all. A scanner for Deer Lake is overkill.

    since the telegram is either on an all day lunch break or refuse to post my last comment i will reiterate my main point. Speak for yourself, I would much rather retain the rights and freedoms I have. They can't be taken away... except of course in a nation ruled by fear instead of reason where a forgotten book bag can evacuate an airport.
