TSA: Groping AND Stealing?

Yes, folks, the TSA agents, who aren't subject to psychological screening, apparently grope AND steal. From a Washington Examiner editorial:
If you've flown lately, the odds are good that you had a rubber-gloved Transportation Security Administration agent touch you in places that would otherwise result in the issuance of an arrest warrant for unwanted groping. Even so, despite years of imposing increasingly invasive new security procedures, the TSA has yet to catch one terrorist. By contrast, the Washington Post reported in May that "at least 23" TSA agents have been fired since 2007 for stealing from passengers. There were also "at least eight unrelated incidents involving practical jokes played on air passengers, drug use, leaving a security post and falling asleep on the job."
