this wouldn’t have happened if not for the oppressive boot of government on the neck of businesses

Humans be humaning. Would it surprise you if I said there were pilots at major legacy carriers who've been fired for stealing out of people's bags on airplanes?

Do have a source for this?

Google only mentioned an Air India pilot stealing from duty-free.

A few years back we had a CAL scab steal an iPad from a passenger while in flight. If I remember correctly the story had a happy ending, the scab died sometime after the theft.

A pilot at ExpressJet was stealing headsets out of flight cases in the crew room.

And selling them on eBay if I remember correctly. Oh wait, must be a different one...I think it was a pilot stealing the ship headsets that sold them on eBay.

They still had the logo on them or something like that. That's how the pilot got caught. Not the brightest...

In MCO they were stealing pax electronics. Happened so often news set up a sting and used the Find my app and traced it right to the smurf’s house. When they confronted him on camera he said his wife found it (who didn’t work at the airport).
