There are good people and bad people in every walk of life. However at some point you are not just an employee of XYZ doing what your told so you can collect a pay check and feed your family. at some level we are all responsible for the choices we make. Do you know right from wrong? Are you contributing to something that is oppressive? Yes we all have bills to pay we all want to be able to put food on the table but what EXACTLY are you willing to do to do that. Are you willing to whore yourself out, shed your humanity, add to misery and oppression of others? Choice!
I believe that at some point everyone is held accountable for their actions. There is a higher law than the law of man. There is good and what is right and what is just. Yes there may be very nice people working for the TSA and in many other fields that are oppressive The truth is these types of jobs attract some real lowlifes who get off on pushing people around. I suspect most decent people would be turned off by this job. People usually don't line up to get a job where everyone dislikes them or one they will be ashamed to tell people about. They are filled by people who like that sort of thing or couldn't get hired elsewhere.

As a profoundly deaf man, skilled in lip reading with a strong voice and fluency in ASL, I'm very, very #ing annoyed with the TSA right now.
This has "lawsuit" written all over it and the TSA agent will wish he was deaf too because he'll hear a lot of outrage!

The two I know are a thief and a liar. Real upstanding people trying to support their families all right.
One of them belongs to a gang. Is that really the calibre of person you want putting their hands on you and your pockets?
Go ahead and defend the TSA. The fact is we know the truth about them. For all we know YOU are a TSA goon.
Boo hoo. Feel bad for the people who work for the TSA.

Update (June 12): The young author of the post alleging mistreatment by the TSA contacted Boing Boing to request that we delete/unpublish this blog post, explaining that he hadn't intended the story to "go viral." He then took down his account from his Tumblr (which, before this widely re-posted item, appears to have been a small personal blog read by a small number of real-world friends). Today, the TSA also published this post at the official TSA blog. Snip: "A close examination of the video during this timeframe indicates that officers working the checkpoint were professional and appropriate with all passengers."
