Yesterday I wrote about two cases where passengers who had been assaulted by the TSA were themselves charged with assault. Today comes news of yet another woman who, in trying to protect herself, has been charged with assault and battery.
“The more we do to you, the less you seem to believe we are doing it.”
That infamous statement, by an infamous monster, encapsulates perfectly the human capacity for denial. Indeed not just capacity, but eagerness.
The hits just keep on coming. Not content to abuse a few children here and there, the TSA continues its winning streak by singling out a 7-year-old girl in leg braces, a girl who's developmentally disabled, to boot. And not only do they scream at her family and terrify her at the checkpoint, they confront her again the gate, and demand that she return to the checkpoint for further humiliation.
