    “…items that were left behind or confiscated ‘We say willfully surrendered,’ said cashier Roberta Siller”

    Willfully surrendered my ass…..

    “In 2010, the state’s general fund was enriched $300,000 by the storefront’s sales.”

    Great fundraising courtesy of the TSA and the Federal government. Looks like they can make some good money from “surrendered” items. :p

    Any time they confiscate…excuse me, “willfully surrender”…one of my items from me, I completely break it because I’m convinced that half the cool stuff actually goes in some of the TSA agents’ pockets.

    Had a beautiful, German made pocket knife one time that I just plain forgot about. You should have seen the look in that TSA agent’s eyes. So I broke the blade clean off. Broke my heart, but worth it to spite the bastard.

    Did it with a pair of tweezers (yes, such dangerous weapons) once and another time with a pair of small scissors.

    As for “willfully surrendered”, that doesn’t even make any sense–they “willfully surrendered” my pocket knife. But that’s the level of education you get in most civil service employees.

    Had an Italian cigarette case with a built-in lighter that a scumbag-tsa-puke at the Houston airport took a liking to. This after having carried it through airports all over the world. Shoulda seen his face when I took it back from him and broke the top off.

    Everything I’ve ever had confiscated was confiscated in Houston at Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH).

    I should go see if they have my Kuwait Zippo. How could I know that Zippos weren’t allowed, I was in Kuwait supporting OEF when that rule passed. It got on the plane home just fine.

    A while back there was a guy at one of the local gun shows (WAC) selling “TSA confiscated” items. I didn’t see anybody showing interest in his wares. My statement to him: “I’d be too embarrassed to set up here and sell stolen property.” Never saw him at another show; I guess that speaks well for at least some of the locals.
