The Transportation Security Administration was formed after 9/11. It used to come under the authority of the Department of Transportation but now operates under the banner of Homeland Security. Their screeners or “officers” who pat you down in airports have no arresting authority or federal law enforcement training. In fact, Chelsea told listeners that they don’t even have to have a G.E.D. or high school diploma if they have x-ray experience. In short, they have authority similar to that of a mall cop.

Unfortunately it gets worse. Although they are responsible for looking at your check bags, Chelsea reported that some TSA screeners have stolen money, iPads and even pain killers. Other reports include TSA agents who have been guilty of assault, assisting drug traffickers and even smuggling marijuana.

The TSA claims it’s not under the authority of Congress. So what’s the answer? Chelsea believes the answer is to privatize the system and give TSA officers law enforcement training so that the flying public can be treated like customers rather than suspects.
