23. At some point, the vast number of people who keep complaining
of incidents such as this has to add up to evidence in and of itself that there is a very serious problem.

The TSA, at this point, basically expects us to believe that all of these people imagined (hallucinated) incidents that never happened and then insisted on going to the media or internet to complain about these hallucinations.

Is it believable that hundreds of people are suddenly hallucinating events and having the compulsive desire to publicize those hallucinations?

If so, why isn't it happening to anyone other than the TSA?

We should recognize that the TSA has the bureaucratic authority to prevent proof from being available in individual situations, so the lack of such proof doesn't mean that an incident didn't actually happen, but the fact that hundreds of people have individually, separately come forward and said that these incidents happened when they had no incentive to lie has to add up to evidence at some point against the TSA.

It has certainly been shown often enough that people with arbitrary authority tend to abuse it, and that the TSA, in particular, seems to tolerate and cover up abuses when they occur.
