A new mobile app targets TSA abuse with real time reporting:

A new mobile app called FlyRights has been introduced by The Sikh Coalition, a civil rights advocacy group.  The app provides a real-time direct connection to the TSA and DHS complaint system.

The impetus behind the app is ostensibly the profiling of certain racial, ethnic, and religious groups, as The Sikh Coalition asserts has taken place after the September 11th attacks.  However, the very first complaint to come in via FlyRights was from a woman who disclosed that she was carrying breast milk and was subsequently "mistreated."  The second was in fact from a Sikh gentleman who said he was taken aside for special treatment even though he not set off any of the usual alarms.

App site: http://www.fly-rights.org/

Introducing a quick and easy way to report complaints of air travel discrimination in real time, right after the incident occurs.

It's kind of interesting to see software being used for things like this. Though, it is rather sad that it is needed... Sad
