Congressman Duncan of Tennessee tried last June to make the case that the Federal Air Marshal Service was a bigger waste of money. It includes a couple of claims I have not checked out yet, but which I’m inclined to believe:

In fact, more air marshals have been arrested than the number of people arrested by air marshals.

and

Their thousands of employees are not making one arrest per year each. They are averaging slightly over four arrests each year by the entire agency. In other words, we are spending approximately $200 million per arrest. Let me repeat that: we are spending approximately $200 million per arrest.
