TSA Continues Providing First-Rate Protection, Second Degree Sexual Assault

I don't get much of this hassle -- but then I'm not an attractive young girl.

For some reason -- Dana Loesch seems to get this problem a lot -- the TSA is pretty sure that most terrorists are attractive young women, and they're probably hiding their bombs in their vaginas and breasts.

So, now a 17 year old girl, daughter grand-niece of a Congressman, on a trip with her Christian youth group, has her breasts publicly exposed by the TSA.

What the government and the civil libertarians are quite certain of is that we must not racially profile people actually fitting the terrorist profile -- Muslim men between 18 and 40. So we let the TSA workers pick and choose. And what ends up happening is we get racial profiling of young women, aged 16 to 35, usually white and usually a C cup or better. They are not being selected for their likelihood of terrorist intent, but rather according to how much the TSA screener wants to touch them.

This is racial profiling too -- or sexual profiling, at least, and unlike the racial kind, it has no rational link to the sort of crime being profiled. This is just about personal sexual jollies.

Let's see. Walk naked past a window inside your own home and if someone walking past who has a child with them looks in and sees you, you are the one charged with a sex crime. Expose a minor's breasts to an entire airport full of people, oops. Sorry about that.

29 If TSA was interested in doing a proper job they would use (among other things) more dogs.

Big, black, friendly dogs.

The dogs wouldn't have to actually DO anything, just be there and be friendly. The screeners would just watch the reactions of the passengers to the dogs.

Select anybody who reacts negatively for closer screening.

30 Isn't TSA now going around and checking drinks of passengers who are now through security? You know, where those drinks have been purchased on the other side of the Thin Rapey Line since you can't bring stuff through yourself.


Oh and iirc one of the makers of the whole body scanners recently got busted for lying outright about the risks posed by the scanners.

35 I just recently used the TSA pre-pass at Salt Lake City Airport. Pre-pass is for either extreme road warriors or those of us who have more secure goverment passes( Customs Global Entry). You don't have to take your shoes or belt off, you can leave your computer in your bag (along with liquids) and just saunter through a metal detector. My daughter was 15 minutes in the regular peon line.

It was not unpleasant in anyway (even the TSA guys were nice). This is the type of security most americans should be subjected to if a reasonable amount of high risk profiling (not necessarily racial) was done.

38 Ace, on the negotiated statement about Benghazi. A good analogy is Maryland leaving the ACC yesterday. Officially the vote was unanimous. In reality a significant minority wanted to stay in the ACC, an informal vote was taken, and it was clear they would lose the vote. Then for the sake of institutional unity an official vote is taken that is unanimous.

42 I'd add that on my way back from HI in July, I observed the TSA screener who was supposed to be watching as the carry-on bags were being x-rayed playing on her iPhone for at least 2 minutes solid, while the carry-on bags whizzed by. I think it would have been possible to bring one of those cartoon spherical bombs with the fuse on fire right through on my carry-on bag. N.B., I was forced to eat or throw away an apple I had brought with me before getting into the terminal.

The last time I flew to Europe, as I was putting my shoes back on, I watched a TSA goon feeling down the front of a pilot's pants.

As I tweeted (but very carefully did not say out loud), if a pilot wants to kill a whole bunch of people with an airplane, he doesn't need to carry a weapon onto his plane. EgyptAir Flight 990, for example.

BTW: Bush has to take some of the blame for this. HLS and the beefed up rent a cops called the TSA are his invention. The sad truth is outside of Obamacare Bush did more to expand big government in this country than Obama has.

Yeah, that would also explain why she apparently didn't have a bra (unless great-uncle is exaggerating and her bra was exposed, not her breasts). So it is conceivable that it was an accident...or that the perv noticed the dress and knew that it was the type he could "accidentally" pull down.

Another good example of calling bullshit on the "If It Bleeds it Leads" claim the media is just sensationalistic. They are sensationalistic when it helps them.

Elmo is now an accused pedophile. The cheap, tawdry headlines are there to be written -- but no, the media is, for some strange reason, not wanting to go for the big easy headline in this case.

No, in this case they use long, boring headlines. Very dry. Actor resigns amid sex allegation. Nothing to see hear.

Yeah, that would also explain why she apparently didn't have a bra (unless great-uncle is exaggerating and her bra was exposed, not her breasts). So it is conceivable that it was an accident...or that the perv noticed the dress and knew that it was the type he could "accidentally" pull down.

206 [iMy standard now is if it takes longer than 10 hours to drive I don't go at all.

I've actually sat down with paper and pencil and figured out the time it takes to drive to the airport, park the car, get the bags checked, stand in line, wait in concourse, wait to board, wait on the tarmac, wait in line to take off, then finally take off, and calculated I'd be three quarters of the way across Pennsylvania before the plane caught up to me. It absolutely kicks my ass for the next 100 miles, but then it lands, and waits on the tarmac, gets towed to the gate, bags get unloaded, waiting to retrieve bags, waiting to get car, all while I'm whistling along at 72 mph. It's pretty close call, timewise, and gas costs money, but so does parking, and it boils down to a judgement call and how much radiation one wants to expose themselves to in order to even get on-board the airplane much less when they fly, versus watching the landscape cruise by at a more leisurely rate.

Throw in the obligatory genital foundling, and I'd rather drive, even though it is kinda fun to see the look of astonishment on a female TSA agents face.

232 Sixteen US airports use private screeners, with better results than govt. TSA goon screens:
"San Francisco International Airport (SFO) employs a private contractor for screening passengers and luggage. It’s one of only 16 airports (out of 450 in this country) allowed to do this. Last year the House Transportation Infrastructure committee conducted a study of how screening at Los Angeleschief airport (LAX) compared with SFO’s. The astonishing finding: SFO screeners processed 65% more passengers per screener than did their counterparts at LAX. That’s not a typo: 65%. SFO screeners receive the same wages and benefits as those hired and managed by the TSA, and SFO uses virtually identical procedures and equipment. The difference is that the private contractor in San Francisco has no sense of entitlement or feeling of permanency. Competition works. There is far less turnover of screeners at SFO, and the contractor saves money by using part-timers (all fully trained, of course) to meet peak periods rather than keeping full-timers waiting around for periodic surges."

This is what happened to our son (going back to his duty station):

Goes through nude scanner. Full-body pat-down. Hands tested for explosive residue.

At the gate they announced military could board next. We hugged and kissed him good-bye, and two TSA thugs pulled him aside for one final humiliating pat-down (he was in shorts and tee shirt) and one last check inside his Marine Corps backpack (with a change of clothes and his iPad).

I've also been singled out for the explosive residue test on my hands.

My husband never has to deal with any hassle.

They are hilarious in the winter, particularly in Anchorage. They just step over fences and wander where ever they feel like going. One stepped over a fence onto the hood of our neighbor's car, and pretty well ruined the engine block. And you sure don't want to hit one on the highway. The feet come right up and through the windshield. Nasty way to die. And the moose sometimes just walk away.

He is a WW2 vet and wears a baseball cap with that on it, and he gets pulled out every time we fly. It makes me crazy and the last time a woman in a full burka sailed right through TSA before him. I was livid and was very surprised they didn't call the police on me. I have decided to video his patdown everytime we go through it. Am I allowed to just whip out my phone and tell them I am going to make a video of this legal assult for his protection. Will I get my phone confiscated? Will they prevent me from flying? What are my legal rights with this?

315 This is why I haven't flown in several years. I refuse to use the scanners, and there's no way I'm submitting to a pat-down...and since I am female and kinda pretty or whatever, I'm assuming I'd get singled out. Again.

The last straw was a trip where I had on a light cardigan over a strappy camisole...the screener demanded that I remove my "coat." Me: "This is not a coat. It is a shirt that happens to have buttons down the front. A cardigan." Him: "I can't let you through unless you remove it and put it on the conveyer." Honestly, you could barely tell I had a camisole under the cardigan because I had buttoned it up nearly to the top. So when I was forced to unbutton it and take it off, it looked like I was removing everything above the waist. And the camisole was thin, so I'm sure you could see a lot of bra and my straps were visible. As someone who tries to dress modestly in public, this was aggravating and embarrassing.

I'm sure the screener loved watching me strip off my cardigan, and loved that he got to tell me to do so.

So, husband is on board with driving. Road trips together have been fun and involved getting to eat lots of different, tasty noms in various parts of the country. I don't miss the airport hassle one bit, especially men who aren't my husband demanding I remove articles of clothing.

317 @277, we knew a guy that went off the road and down to the bottom of a hill. He had his rifle with him and fired it whenever he heard his friend's cars on the road above. He was saving out a bullet for himself, but they found him before it came to that. He became pretty unpleasant to be around after that, as he thought his friends had ignored him purposely.

I had a hell trip home from work about two years ago. I had an hour and a half commute, all freeway. Just outside of town, the freeway was closed due to a semi blocking the road. It had hit ice and went sideways. Sat there for two hours while they cleared it, as they put the sign up about the road being closed AFTER the last exit in town. Then got to drive home on freezing rain and snow. It turns out old cop cars are not that good in ice. I went off the road twice. Fortunately, didn't get hurt but it took about five hours to get home. I didn't go to work the next day.

The good news is, I told the owner of the company about it. And they let me work from home now, so I've only had to drive in twice this year. For your trip, I'd recommend the usual warm clothes, food, beverages, etc. Light sticks are a good addition, as well as something to charge your cell phone with. I had a down sleeping bag in my car, which did come in handy.
