(NaturalNews) Americans might want to exercise more caution when dealing with the potential terrorists operating the security lines at the airport than those allegedly trying to get through them and onto planes. Another report of U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) misconduct released by USA Today explains that a former TSA agent has been put on three years probation for stealing thousands of dollars worth of computer and electronic equipment from passengers' luggage.

"Authorities say 37-year-old Troy Davis, of Willingboro, N.J., took five laptop computers and a PlayStation game in March 2009," wrote The Associated Press. "An airline baggage handler spotted him hiding the items behind an explosive-detection machine."

Davis pleaded guilty to the crimes back in October 2009. And although he was ordered to pay $5,000 in fines, Davis was not sentenced to any jail time because he allegedly served in the military prior to working for the TSA, which prompted the judge to adjust his sentence accordingly.

TSA officials in charge of hiring airport security agents seem to have a faulty screening process, despite the ironic fact that the agency serves as the primary security screening system at the nation's airports. Numerous cases of heinous crimes being committed by TSA agents continue to come to light, especially now that the agency has been given free reign to openly violate passenger privacy and molest travelers in the name of national security.

Last week, a former TSA agent out of Boston was arrested on child pornography charges (http://www.naturalnews.com/030787_child_porn...). Last month, an Orlando-based TSA screener was arrested for molesting a 12-year-old girl (http://www.clickorlando.com/news/22391933/de...). And earlier in the year, another Boston-based TSA agent was arrested for sex crimes against an underage girl (http://www.naturalnews.com/030787_child_porn...).
