I think the TSA and the RIAA are learning from each other. Both are pursuing tactics that would drive their organization into the ground in the free market, yet both are protected by the government and therefore immortal.
BoingBoing's recent tale of a five-year-old detained by airport security because of a mistaken identity is hardly surprising at this point. It's a wonder they didn't taser the kid when he cried.
"When his mother went to pick him up and hug him and comfort him during the proceedings, she was told not to touch him because he was a national security risk. They also had to frisk her again to make sure the little Dillinger hadn't passed anything dangerous weapons or materials to his mother when she hugged him."
