A former Transportation Security Administration has been sentenced to three years probation for stealing electronics from passengers' luggage at Philadelphia International.
"Authorities say 37-year-old Troy Davis, of Willingboro, N.J., took five laptop computers and a PlayStation game in March 2009," The Associated Press writes. "An airline baggage handler spotted him hiding the items behind an explosive-detection machine."
Davis also must pay a $5,000 fine, according to the Philadelphia Business Journal. The Courier-Post of Camden, N.J., notes "Davis previously pleaded guilty to charges that included theft by a government employee."
The judge handling the case says he considered Davis' prior military service when determining his sentence, AP reports.
Why do people insist that the TSA is keeping us safe? They grope us, take naked pictures of us, confiscate our water bottles, and steal our belongings, while allowing weapons to pass through. How does that keep us safe?Answer Question

Saaweeeeetttt! So you can commit felonies if you work for the TSA and get away with it? You can steal high dollar stuff and touch people's goodies and all is forgiven? I need to go back to work!
Seriously though, couldn't the victims file charges for grand theft? Regardless of who they work for?
