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.
