Woman accused of groping TSA agent

It happened on her way to Cleveland, Ohio. Airline passenger Carol Price says while going through security to catch her flight, a TSA agent groped her.

In response, the video shows Price put down her carry-on bags, turn to a TSA supervisor and grab her - allegedly without permission - to show the supervisor what Price says she went through.

...
Price is a former TSA agent who worked at the airport until a few years ago. She got along with some, but not all of her co-workers, and says her pat down was personal.

...
But Mills admits Price was already emotional that day.
"She was going to her brother's funeral," he said, adding that she did not make it.
Instead, Price was removed from the flight, taken to jail and now faces misdemeanor battery charges.

While handled inappropriately, I would give her a +1 for having the guts to do that.

Default great illustration of the problems with the TSA and federal bureaucracies

From the OP's link:
Quote:
The TSA says: "The pat down was conducted correctly in accordance with our procedures. Violence against our officers who work every day to keep the traveling public safe is unacceptable."
So, we have a TSA official actually admitting that the pat downs are the equivilance of violence when conducted against one of their officers without consent. Violence for them under the guise of a federal bureaucracies rules.

IMHO - the only reason for the TSA, and most of the rest of HS, is to keep the American people so frightened thay become unable to think about providing their own security. The TSA requires terrorists to justify its existance.

Doing to one of them what was done to you is just demonstrating what happened. Denying he the flight and putting her in jail is more like summary punishment for not being submissive than anything else. I would fire the TSA people for being inefficiently obnoxious.

Give an idiot a uniform and you still have an idiot. The TSA must have a hiring filter that keeps out the competent and retains the idiots.

I hope you can comprehend the fact that even if you disagree with what a law enforcement officer is doing, committing a battery is not a good way to express your dissatisfaction.

Either you have to admit that what they're doing is battery or you have to accept that it's not. Can't have it both ways.
