Passenger Arrested for Retaliatory Groping of Transportation Security Administration Agent

Turnabout is apparently not fair play, as a passenger was reportedly arrested for battery and resisting an officer after she allegedly groped a Transportation Security Administration agent in a demonstration of how the Transportation Security Administration agent groped her at Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers.
Carol Jean Price, who is 59 years old, was about to board an aircraft bound for Ohio when she was chosen for a “pat-down” at the airport security checkpoint. Angry about the extra screening procedure, Price supposedly asked to speak to a Transportation Security Administration supervisor and reached down to demonstrate by allegedly grabbing the leg and crotch area of the Transportation Security Administration agent, as she claimed had happened to her. She was reportedly arrested shortly thereafter.
Is it fair that you cannot grope Transportation Security Administration agents the exact same way in which they grope you during a “pat-down”? Is this a classic case of “Do as I say, not as I do”? FlyerTalk members discuss this topic, as well as debate the legal issues and their ramifications.
While I have no interest in groping Transportation Security Administration agents, I would like to know what you think of this story.
