More US Air Marshals have been arrested than they have actually arrested....

The math breaks down like this. They make about 4.2 arrests per year. Meaning 1 arrest per 1000 people employed by the Air Marshal Service.

Their budget is $860 MILLION a year. Meaning we spend $200 million per arrest....

Yet another reason why "Wars on [Inanimate Objects or Emotions]" are a waste of both time and money.

You know, I'm all for layered deterrence when it comes to security, but $860 million per year for Air Marshalls‽  I wonder if that money is actually paid to the airlines and if so, how much of a dent would that put into their already failing business model.

This is yet another gov't agency that has gone unchecked for so long that its power has corrupted the department.  It's really sad TBH.  I don't want to say that it should be totally dismantled, but good lord there's $855 million per year that could go to more worthwhile programs (NASA, border patrol, renewable/alternative energy research funding, small business incentives just to name a few).
