There are two points here up for Discussion and you know how 'Peter pays for Paul'? Well you can see why this gives everyone a bad reputation. First he is Hispanic and second he is a TSA officer (Both categories don't seem to be favored in the USA at the moment), well he used to be. Have a look:

I have taken a lot of complaints over the years and even more recently of the TSA removing valuable items from people baggage. We get a lot of people who have tracking on their phones and laptops and they are able to track the phones or laptops to areas where only employees have access to like they were trying to take them home. This is not limited to TSA and it is not always limited to Minorities. I think a lot of TSA people are thieves and have seen some fired for theft.
Weirdest questions passengers have asked TSA. PEOPLE refuse to travel without the oddest things sometimes, such as their pet gold fish. But that's all in a day's work for the staff of the Transportation Security Administration. Source 1x.
TSA considering eliminating screening at smaller airports
The Transportation Security Administration is considering eliminating passenger screening at more than 150 small and medium-sized airports across the US, according to senior agency officials and internal documents obtained by CNN.
The proposal, if implemented, would mark a major change for air travel in the US, following nearly two decades of TSA presence since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and comes as the Trump administration has stepped up screening measures for items such as laptops and tablets.
Internal documents from a TSA working group say the proposal to cut screening at small and some medium-sized airports serving aircraft with 60 seats or fewer could bring a "Small (Non-zero) undesirable increase in risk related to additional adversary opportunity." Ref. CNN.
Wouldn't that allow terrorists to shift their focus? You can still do significant damage even on a small plane full with explosives.
We rest Transportation Security Administration TSA to share wisdom from the good old days:
