They just need to find where Stacks ditched the truck. Look in Jersey.

Was watching GoodFellas on my DVR this morning, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

Well it's pretty easy to steal $1.5M worth of Ipads when the box is only 2 ft x 2ft

Not really... knowing Apple, I'd bet that the moment those go online and report home, they'll receive an auto-blow-yourself-up command and the suckers that bought the stolen merchandise will have a nice paperweight.

Electronics that report to it's lord and master company and identify itself with the ability of being bricked are not a good "investment" when it comes to a burglary/heist.

This story just speaks to how truly safe you are in an airport thanks to the TSA.

How will that matter to the people who have already been paid for them

And by the way, look for them on sale in your questionable neighborhood electronics store soon.

A pair of brazen crooks punched another hole in the lax JFK security when they stole a trove of new Apple iPad minis - worth $1.5 million...

What Jimmy really loved to do, what he really loved to do was steal. I mean he actually enjoyed it. Jimmy was the kind of guy who rooted for the bad guys in the movies.

SInce we are talking about ..how many?... 5 or 6 iPads? One of the buyers should be able to lead the police to who sold it to her.

For as long as I can remember I always wanted to be a gangster. To me that was better than being president of the United States. To be a gangster was to own the world.

Technically, yes, they are thieves. But that's kind of a broad statement. This wasn't some idiot knocking off a liquor store. This was an Inside job. There were connections to organized crime. Pilfering adds to the cost of your products. It takes hard earned money money out of your pocket and feeds organized crime and does not affect the seller. The manufacturer will not absorb that loss. They pass it on to their customer. If you see someone who looks Italian, it's really just best to kill them on the spot.

Isn't JFK rated as having the highest theft rate of all airports in the US?

Wait until they find out they're really just mirrors and duct tape. That will be hilarious.

Actually you can. I flew to NYC recently and for kicks put a quarter-full standard tube of toothpaste in my liquids Ziploc. I even put the Ziploc in the tray with my shoes. No problem. I think they may have started to realize that the whole liquid business is absolutely farktarded.

The TSA is probably more run by organized crime than Homeland Insecurity now, anyway. The bosses put out feelers about what they want, the floor grunts steal as many as possible or claim they can't be flown with, and the box of rejects disappears at the end of the shift.

So, when these Mob customers find out their new iPad is bricked, who do they go to for warranty work?

/since Apple has the ID #s for all those stolen, won't they be nuked as soon as they use the internet?

Whenever we needed money, we'd rob the airport. To us, it was better than Citibank.
