TSA Screeners Look The Other Way for the Right Price

From the L.A. Times:


TSA screeners allegedly let drug-filled luggage through LAX for cash

The TSA screeners, who were arrested Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, allegedly received up to $2,400 in cash bribes in exchange for allowing large drug shipments to pass through checkpoints in what the U.S. attorney in Los Angeles called a “significant breakdown” of security.

What happens when Mohamed wants to bring C4 on board and has the money to buy his way through security?

Still feel safe?
