TSA searches valet parked car

Rochester, N.Y. -- She says she had no warning that someone was going to search her car after she left to catch her flight. So the woman contacted News10NBC.

 We found out it happened to her because she valet parked her car. Those are the only cars that get inspected.

 So if security feels it is necessary to search some cars in the name of safety, why not search all of them?

 Laurie Iacuzza walked to her waiting car at the Greater Rochester International Airport after returning from a trip and that's when she found it -- a notice saying her car was inspected after she left for her flight. She said, “I was furious. They never mentioned it to me when I booked the valet or when I picked up the car or when I dropped it off.”

Iacuzza's car was inspected by valet attendants on orders from the TSA. But why only valet parked cars? That's what News10NBC wanted to ask the TSA director about.  We reached him by phone.

 Berkeley Brean asked, “Are the cars in the short term lots and long term lots getting searched as well?”

John McCaffery, TSA, said, “No, those vehicles that are in the garage, short term long term parking, even if they carry pretty large amounts of explosives, they would not cause damage to the front of the airport. But for those who use the valet, the car could be there for a half hour or an hour so there is a vulnerability.”

News10NBC went to the valet parking and one of the attendants showed us the notice they put in the cars.

 We asked, “You're required, they tell you, you have to search the car?” Valet Parking Attendant Frank Dettorre said, “I have to do it.”

We also noticed a large sign that alerts customers that their vehicle will be inspected. The sign is on the kiosk window. Iacuzza says it was not there when she dropped off her car. “I think the public should be aware of the fact that if their car is going to be searched, they should be informed of it.”

Iacuzza said she doesn't mind the security measure. She just wants to be told if her car is getting searched.

 News10NBC asked the owner of the company that runs the valet parking when they put up the sign but he wouldn't answer.

 TSA says this is part of its overall security plan and that it's a proactive move. The attendants said they've only been doing it for about a month.

 A Long Island beauty says NYPD cops seized her iPhone and that one of them stole sexually explicit photos and videos meant for her boyfriend’s eyes only.

Pamela Held, 27, of Deer Park, is poised to sue the city and the Police Department, accusing a cop of invading her privacy by forwarding the provocative images from her iPhone. The steamy images of Held were sent to a personal cell phone that her lawyer said belongs to Officer Sean Christian.

If the description of events is accurate, then this may be tragic but justifiable. But that's a big if.

Are we to believe that trained police officers failed horribly in their duties by being unable to subdue a 95-year old man and lost control of the situation so much that they had to resort to a taser, which failed to subdue this nonagenarian, who remained a threat big enough that he had to be shot?

Really!?!

Something just doesn't add up here.

I can believe he might have - people do stupid things all the time, I'm not willing to exempt him. But even if he did, could this not have been resolved differently?

Can't these policemen - who are likely to be in decent shape and near their physical prime, have received hand-to-hand combat and practiced scenarios involving knife-wielding attackers - defend themselves and disarm a ninety-five year old?

That's just too much.

Frankly, by this admission alone they should be dismissed; clearly they're not physically fit to discharge their duties and can only rely on firepower.

Report: TSA employee misconduct up 26% in 3 years
CNN ^  | July 31, 2013 | Ed Payne and Rene Marsh

Posted on Wednesday, July 31, 2013 9:44:31 AM by george76

Some of the most serious violations include: Employees sleeping on the job, letting family and friends go without being screened, leaving work without permission, and stealing.

The Government Accountability Office report released this week says more than 9,000 cases of misconduct were documented over a three-year span.

More than 1,900 of the incidents were deemed significant enough to be possible security threats.

"There's not even a way to properly report some of the offenses, so this may be just the tip of the iceberg of some of the offenses," said Rep. John Mica, a longtime critic of the TSA who ordered the audit.

Theft by screeners

The report also details thefts by 56 screeners.

Former TSA employees Persad Coumar and Davon Webb pleaded guilty last year to stealing $40,000 from a checked bag at New York's John F. Kennedy Airport.

In 2011, Officer Al Raimi, 29, pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Newark. He admitted that for nearly a year, he stole between $10,000 and $30,000 in cash from travelers as they passed through a security checkpoint at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey.

Raimi admitted that he would "kick up" some of that money to a supervisor, who in turn allowed him to keep stealing. The supervisor, Michael Arato, also pleaded guilty to accepting kickbacks and bribes.

I didn't watch the video (his voice drives me *crazy*) but at least he doesn't read as obnoxious as he sounds. And, at least, from the article he doesn't just slam Obama which is his usual modus operandi. And rightly so - this bullshit has been going on for a long time, and both sides of the aisle are just as responsible with very people having stood up to warn us.

Our society has devolved so fast, it's fucking scary... In addition to the crazy shit already posted here:

  • You have an incoming FBI director who basically refuses to answer questions posed by members of the committee tasked with overseeing the organization he's in charge of. Ref: Wyden Press Release.
  • You have Mike Rogers' Congressional staffers threatening journalists and bloggers with defamation suits - a move that has a dramatic chilling effect on free speech in general. Ref: TechDirt article.
  • You have Chris Christie, a man with Presidential aspirations, publicly proclaim that libertarianism and opposition to NSA surveillance are "dangerous." Ref: Washington Post Article.
  • You have idiots like Stewart Baker - who served in legal roles at NSA and DHS - that believes that the NSA has "respect for the rights of Americans" and that what we need is more surveillance and less privacy, and that civil liberties are an outdated notion that will cost us the war on terror. Ref: Insane ramblings at Skating on Stilts.

I could go on...

The money shot from that article (at http://www.cnn.com/2013/07/31/travel/tsa-misconduct/index.html, btw) is the quote from the union representing TSA screeners, attempting to argue that the numbers show a majority of their members are doing a swell job!

These are the people that stole tens - perhaps hundreds - of thousands of dollars. Who slept on the job. Who let their friends go unscreened while groping your kid.

Great fucking job indeed.

Its absolutely insane isnt it? The stuff coming out of these peoples mouths is absolutely mind boggling, its like something straight out of an orwellian sci fi novel. How the hell are the people in this countryngrowing up with no knowledge or respect for our constitution or the rights the founders worked so hard to achieve for future generations? I feel like someone along the line people are being indoctrinated that rifhts are bad, the constitution is bad, and that the state and security are the only things that matter.... and this isnt a left/right thing....

I guess ots not suprising that its politicians amd federal government heads that are telling us to give up on outdated notions like rights and freedoms, lol.

Cleveland Police Disciplining 75 Cops After An Unarmed Couple Was Shot 137 Times

Cleveland Police Chief Michael McGrath
Cleveland police officials said Friday they're disciplining 75 of officers for their involvement in a police chase that ended in the shooting deaths of an unarmed man and woman, The Plain Dealer reports.

The pair were shot 137 times while in their car, parked in a middle school parking lot. No officers were injured in what police called a "full blown-out" firefight.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine told reporters in February that "there is nothing normal about this case. ... This is a tragedy."

In November, about 60 police vehicles pursued the two suspects in a 25-minute chase spanning three cities. One suspect, 30-year-old Malissa Williams, was shot 24 times, and the other, 43-year-old Timothy Russell, was shot 23 times.

At the time, police said the suspects fired shots at them near Cleveland's downtown Justice Center, according to The Plain Dealer. And a police dispatcher said that shots were fired at officers during the chase.

But after the chase ended in a gunfight near Heritage Middle School, police checked the car and realized neither Williams nor Russell was armed.

It isn't clear whether a shot was actually fired at the officer who initiated the chase. Some speculate the Malibu driven by Russell may have backfired.

A report from the state's attorney general shows the officers likely believe the suspects were armed based on erroneous information broadcast over the police radio. Officers told investigators they saw the suspects in the car with what looked like a gun.

Russell might have fled from police initially, fueling the massive chase, because he was high and driving on a suspended license. Toxicology results show that Russell was under the influence of cocaine and alcohol at the time of his death. Williams was also high on cocaine and had marijuana in her system.

The officers being disciplined for violating police protocol won't lose their jobs and did not partake in the gunfight at the end of the chase, but they did have a role in the pursuit. More than 100 police officers were involved in the chase in some way.

Nineteen of the 75 officers facing discipline for offenses ranging from engaging in a chase without permission to providing false information on police reports will have disciplinary hearings and might be suspended temporarily, according to The Plain Dealer.

In 2011, the newspaper published an investigation of reports of excessive use of nondeadly force by Cleveland police officers. The newspaper found that the police chief often overlooked inconsistencies with police officers' stories when investigating use of force incidents.

Many of the officers faced accusations of brutality on the force.

The other 60 cars were dispatched to an emergency; it was a vicious fight between a kitten and a toddler. Several Officers were decorated for gallantry and bravery for their conduct during that incident. The kitten and the toddler did not survive.
