more TSA destruction

Dick Move, TSA (R.I.P. Rand’s laptop):

Boy, did he. As I noted before, once you opt-out, or are selected for additional screening, you can’t touch your own possessions. TSA has to move them. Rand offered to help with his stuff, because there was a lot of it, but the agent insisted he could carry it all. He couldn’t. He dropped Rand’s laptop, cracking the plastic case, knocking off keys, and irreparably damaging the screen and it.

If you knew you had the time to waste, it would be time to call the police and file charges for destruction of property. It might get you on the "no-fly" list as well.
