It sounds to me like the 'academy' is now teaching screeners that they have the 'final say' on whether or not they will deliberately physically harm a pax. There is apparently no longer any need to pretend that any harm inflicted is accidental or unintended.

Apparently the 'academy' is teaching screeners that the checkpoint and the sterile area are truly outside the protections of the Constitution. Sad to think so many ex-military are on board with this attitude. Fortunately they are ex-miltary; people with that kind of disdain for our fundamental Constitutional rights should never have been allowed to wear the uniform in the first place.

TSA HQ is clearly on board with these practices, because it continues to teach these practices at the 'academy' and to support TSOs who engage in them.
