Carol Jean Price convicted of battery against TSA

by Lisa Simeone on July 12, 2012

Carol Jean Price, one of the few people in this country who has fought back against the TSA at the airport, has been convicted of battery against a TSA agent. The jury took only 20 minutes to reach a verdict.

So many of us who’ve been ringing alarm bells about the TSA have been wondering what would happen if a case such as hers ever reached a jury. Many said no jury in America would convict.

I guess this case put the lie to that.

I wrote in a comment just a few minutes ago, in answer to a reader’s question, that I believe we in this country are nowhere near a critical mass of people outraged enough at TSA abuse to do something about it. I’d say we’ve just seen evidence for that belief.
