ABC News 20/20's story "Travelers Beware" examined the nature of crimes committed against travelers at the nation's airports. Through the use of hidden cameras, police "ride-alongs," and airport surveillance footage viewers had a first hand look at the methods and practices of organized, sophisticated, well-trained thieves. The report examined how these thieves took advantage of lenient penalties due to the non-violent nature of their crimes, lax enforcement of security by airline and airport officials, and untrained or under-staffed law enforcement agencies and the crowded confused environment of the airport to operate with impunity traveling from airport to airport.
