    I don't think you understand.
    That Apple employee assault you, stole your possessions, and threatened you.

    Firstly.
    You are allowed to put whatever the hell software, whatever the hell firmware, you can even change the hardware on your iPod Touch. Apple doesn't have to service it once you do, but you have the legal right to change whatever you want on your piece of equipment.

    Dude, in all seriousness go back inot the store and give him a fake letter saying that you're going to sue him for 3 different things.

    Also he basically kidnapped you by saying you couldn't leave the store.
