One of the world’s top cellists had his rare and precious bow damaged after Transportation Security Administration workers at the airport in Chicago brutally and carelessly probed his cello case.

“My bow must have moved out of its cover,” Gerhardt stated in an interview, adding, “and instead of putting it back in, they just slammed the case shut and broke the bow that way over the bridge.”

I was carrying in a car trunk from Canada to USA. The border patrol simply made a hole in a fabric in front, then put a probe with a camera in. That was before TSA was established...

Seriously, this isn't funny.

Making light of it implies (however subtlety) the the TSA is excused of any wrongdoing in the simple court of public opinion.

This is, simply, another blow against freedoms in America.

It reminds me of the nazi thugs who destroyed the old man's, thick, bottle shaped glasses and then laughed because the glasses looked funny.

It is a travesty against justice and I don't find it the least bit funny.

I'm sure many of you don't, either. You are just so far beyond disbelief of these mindless, idiot GOONS that this injection of humor and ridicule of beauty, destroyed seems to now be some sort of coping mechanism. Groping our children and humiliating our elderly isn't enough now. They must also steal and destroy our belongings as they fondle our babies and degrade our grandmothers.

How long will we accept this insanity?

I totally understand why they would break his bow.

He's probably a terrorist who would use it shoot an arrow on the plane. To TSA, a bow is a bow.

Oh my!

They didn't want "no" bow-hunters on the plane!? Maybe the TSA guys used it for swatting each other!

oh yeah,

More S&M from the TSA.

Don't Be A Baby

Be a global patriot. Consider it a small sacrifice for the sake of being priveleged to fly safely. You do worship the state don't you?

In the TSA's defense, the bow

In the TSA's defense, the bow probably looked like terrorist

Yea, A $20, 000 Sacrifice Is Definitely Better Than Having Your

kids set on fire like a rubber tire..
