TSA Finds Weed, Leaves Note . . . and Weed. Derp.

We don't need widespread surveillance when people are happy to advertise their own crimes on the internet.
Another TSA Officer Leaves Personalized Note In Passenger's Bag (After Finding Marijuana)

Apparently, a TSA officer getting fired for leaving a personalized note in a passenger’s bag has not deterred other employees at the Transportation Security Administration from editorializing on the contents of the bags they screen. This time, though, the TSA officer did the passenger a favor, by not turning him in for traveling with illegal substances. Indiana rapper Freddie Gibbs had packed marijuana in his checked luggage; when his bag was screened, the TSA officer must have noted Gibbs’ unique interpretation of the “mile high club.” On the official note informing Gibbs that his bag had been inspected, the officer allegedly wrote, “C’mon son.”

Gibbs did not take the avuncular advice very seriously, instead providing photographic evidence of his possession and transportation of illegal substances over state lines via Twitter:

Gibbs tweeted about the note on Wednesday, likely after flying to Denver to perform that night. While certainly a less intrusive note than “Get Your Freak On, Girl” (the one left by a TSA officer who discovered a vibrator), I imagine this TSA officer is going to get into double trouble for both leaving the note, and failing to act after finding something illegal in someone’s bag.

“ TSA takes all allegations of inappropriate conduct seriously and is investigating this claim,” says a spokesperson for the TSA. ” Should the claims be substantiated, TSA will take appropriate disciplinary steps and refer the alleged possession of an illegal substance to law enforcement.”

Friends, this is why we don’t tweet evidence that can be used against us (and those who did us a favor) in a court of law. . .

Indeed. One wonders how he expects to purchase more bags from his dealer after that.

That was exactly my reaction.

I mean if you're stupid enough to put a banned substance in a bag you KNOW is going to be searched, and get off with a note count your blessings and shut the hell up!

Meanwhile, senior citizens are strip-searched. Makes perfect sense.

The TSA is an exercise in psychology. It was devised to make people feel safer. Even in its hay-day, the TSA couldn't have stopped a determined hijacker or terrorist. But now, it's simply a joke. I don't think many people consider the TSA much of a safeguard. After all, it has been passengers, not the TSA, who have stopped all terrorist incidents since 9/11. The TSA regularly allows weapons through checkpoints (by the government's own account). And apparently, they allow illegal drugs through checkpoints in real-life situations. They also sexually harass and assault passengers at will. The TSA, while pleasing to the bureaucracy and a few fascists out there, is nothing more than an affront to American values. It is a menace to society, nothing more.

Is the TSA tasked with law enforcement? They aren't technically police are they? TSA rules about bottles of containers of liquid being smaller than 3 ounces isn't a law, it just a rule.

I still think "Midnight Express" should be mandatory viewing in HS.

Not sure about TSA vs. cops. But I do know that if you feel you have been sexually assaulted during the course of a TSA search, you are instructed to contact the police immediately. They will deal with the situation. That tells me the TSA is inferior to local police. But I don't know the intricacies of the law regarding this subject.
