TSA Abuse of Power
Woman accidentally leaves a knife in her carry-on luggage, where it’s discovered by screeners.
She says screeners refused to give her paperwork or documentation of her violation, documentation of the pending fine, or a copy of the photograph of the knife.
“They said ‘no’ and they said it’s a national security issue. And I said what about my constitutional rights? And they said ‘not at this point … you don’t have any’.”
