This is one of the more stupid acts of the TSA
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.
