    This is going on because the people at the top are allowing it to go on. This is being tolerated, if not actively encouraged, by Pistole and Napolitano. And it will only get worse. They are criminals.

    I just got off the phone with a therapist who treats trauma patients. She has a number of clients who have been psychologically triggered/re-injured by their experience at the hands of this national goon squad. This is just one therapist.

    She said they report the same thing, that they go to the ACLU but get nowhere, because the ACLU considers the TSA to be "sue-proof." Mass negligence and mass injury can't be sue-proof.

    The ACLU has completely dropped the ball on this. I told them so when they called asking me to renew my membership. I said I'll give money to my local chapter, but not to national hq. You guys have been worthless. EPIC is the only major organization going after this. And individual people fighting individual lawsuits. But the single largest civil liberties organization in the country can't be bothered.

    Take a step back and look what happened to this woman. All the TSA clerk had to do in this situation was step back, let her be thrown out of the airport, and there would have been no news. Instead, the clerk-ette displays the intelligence that TSA clerks have become renowned for, and aggressively presses charges for conduct that does not come close to the daily violations that the clerkette herself performs on people, thus handing TSA opponents a public relations COUP.

    All of these things are cumulative, the massive numbers of people being offensively treated, the 95 year old woman getting groped, this small woman having to physically defend herself, and so many others are being stamped upon the American memory and the TSA is increasingly seen as a hostile and dangerous presence. The TSA is neutering itself.

    nachtnebel, I hope so. But I fear it will have to get a lot worse before it gets better. Denial is a powerful thing.
