    If they had half a brain, they'd just let her off the airplane ...

    They refuse to let her off the plane, and then they have her removed because she's "interfering with the crew's ability to perform their duties"? If someone wants off, just let him or her get off!!! It's a lot easier that way.

    As for the wallet ...

    It's not like it is a small deal to lose your wallet. It contains your ID, your financial means, basically your right to exist in the modern world.
    Without it, you are DEAD in the water if you're away from home. You can't stay anywhere, pay for anything, etc. Having said this,
    this should have been a matter for the local constables and the airline. No reason to get TSA's incompetent nose stuck up this issue.

    It sucks losing your wallet. I've lost mine before. Ended up having to replace everything.

    I always take a copy of my credit cards and license, front and back, in a separate carry on. That way I can contact CC companies and cancel if it is lost. Hasn't happened yet but it's good to have a backup plan.

    I always did that with my passport, too, going back 30 years. And, of course, left copies for family members at home.
