Another Day, Another TSA Scumbag

DFW TSA Creep Busted : Stealing iPads



How many of these stories have we seen over the past decade? 200? 500? 1000? Bottom line: if the TSA is NOT a work release program for convicted felons, it is a training ground for would-be felons. These people are immoral and dishonest and this has been proven hundreds and hundreds of times. And they are entrusted with America’s flying safety? And they have near-police powers over you and yours? And the government wants to increase their powers and extend their jurisdiction? And they still haven’t caught a single terrorist or found a single real bomb. Not one. Of either.

Oh hella no. Fire them all. Throw out the Patriot Act. Disband the TSA. Rethink the entire thing after taking a quadruple dose of common sense, then start over.


A Transportation Security Administration baggage inspector at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport has been indicted in the theft of Apple iPads from luggage over eight months.

Clayton Keith Dovel, 36, of Bedford was arrested Feb. 1 and has been suspended indefinitely, officials said.

The investigation led to the recovery of eight stolen iPads, including one that was among Dovel’s possessions at Terminal E when he was arrested, airport police said.

“suspended indefinitely”. Are you EFFING kidding me? Why was this mo-fo not fired on the spot, stripped of every last government perk and benefit, and then carted off to jail?

The indictments that the Tarrant County grand jury issued this week charge Dovel with theft by a public servant of items valued at up to $20,000. If convicted, he could face two to 10 years in prison. According to airport police, a traveler reported Jan. 24 that his iPad 2 had been stolen and that he had traced it electronically to a home in Bedford owned by Dovel.

While arresting Dovel in that case, airport police discovered another iPad in Dovel’s leather satchel. Dovel told authorities that the iPad was his but that he couldn’t remember where he bought it, according to police reports. Using that iPad’s serial number, police traced it to a Grand Prairie man who had reported that it was stolen as he traveled through Terminal E in May.

In the indictment, Dovel is also accused of stealing iPads in November and early January.

The TSA issued a statement calling the arrest part of a “zero-tolerance policy for allegations of misconduct or theft” at the airport.

Excuse me, but it’s APRIL. They caught this bastard red-handed back in February, and they KNEW that stuff was getting lifted from luggage - iPads specifically - since at least May the year before. a) Investigation my ass. The FBI or cops or whoever could have tracked this crap down months before. ONE THEFT is one too many, but two is enough to show a pattern; and b) is the DFW so buried in crime that a February arrest takes until April to come before a grand jury? Maybe the whole damn area needs some new brooms to sweep things clean.

TSA is little more than a uniformed mafia run by the government. The evidence is overwhelming that they are a debased and criminal enterprise. Fire them all. We don’t need 8 month investigations at the cost of millions. That’s make-work bullshit. Let’s turn the tables. Every single TSA employee, baggage handler, and anyone else in the security or luggage channels gets scanned or strip searched every single day and their possessions checked and listed, on the way in and out of the airport. One extra stick of chewing gum without a receipt and they are arrested. On the spot. We can’t trust them to be honest, so they ought to be treated like the criminals that they want to be. Hell, let’s take back their mall-cop uniforms and dress them in county orange. Might save time in the long run.

And don’t give me that “they couldn’t resist temptation”. Phooey. I used to be a cashier in the grocery store. I’d handle tens of thousands of dollars all the time. Sure, it’s pretty amazing at first. But after a couple of weeks it’s just work, no different than counting coupons. Once you work in the candy factory you lose your taste for chocolates.



Oy vey. Now, back to finishing off my tax forms. Thank you oh great beneficent and benevolent government, for granted us an extra two days this year to file the extensive paperwork necessary to get a small amount of our own money back from your sticky paws.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
