Re: Air Marshall arrests

Interesting article about the arrests of Air Marshalls rather than arrests made by Air Marshalls. I am not sure which statistic is higher but it does show that everyone with a badge and a gun in the US is not above reproach. https://www.propublica.org/article/tsa-releases-data-on-air-marshal-miscon...
