The woman who took this video is accusing the TSA of keeping her off a flight just because an agent didn't like her attitude — and not because anyone thought she was a security risk.
I was not allowed to board a plane (even though I had already been through airport security) because I drank my water instead of letting the TSA "test" it. The TSA agent finally admitted that it wasn't because they thought I was a security risk-it was because the TSA agent...was mad at me!
In the video, the woman can be heard asking the agent if he thinks she's a threat, to which he replies, "No, but with your attitude..." She then asks him to confirm—
Let me get this straight. This is retaliatory for my attitude. This is not making the airways safer. It's retaliatory.
Huffington Post records his response as "Pretty much ... yes," but it's admittedly difficult to hear. Was this agent being cautious, or was he just being a dick?
