Dave,

What the article makes clear is that the problem is much more extensive than just TSA's initial over-reaction.

"A Boston judge ruled that Star must perform community service and make a public apology." That means she was found guilty of a crime. Not to mention "She has moved out of Boston in part because of recurring threats and attacks from strangers."

TSA created the particular incident, but they did not create the mass culture of destructive silliness in which TSA operates and which persists far beyond TSA's limited domain.
