59. Good luck with that
I witnessed a TSA agent flipping out at DFW over nothing more than a woman politely asking him which direction her boarding gate was in. I was afraid for her safety, and for mine if I spoke up. Whom do you think LEO would be listening to in that instance -- the passenger, or the TSA agent? In a time when a 72-year-old woman was recently Tased, they wouldn't even hesitate, and you know it as well as I do.

The woman in question already had an anxiety disorder. To watch her child being taken away by a stranger, on top of the knowledge that she was probably missing her flight and would be stuck in an airport for God knows how long, brought on that panic attack. Panic attacks aren't convenient, either.
