Longmont Woman Draws National Attention In TSA Groping Case

LONGMONT, Colo. (CBS4) – The Department of Homeland Security is taking the case of a Longmont woman who allegedly grabbing the breast of a TSA agent very seriously.

Yukari Mihamae, 61, was taken into custody at the screening area of the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport last Thursday. Police say she refused to go through screening and was argumentative. Officials say she admitted to grabbing a TSA agent’s breast with both hands and squeezing and twisting, but has not given a reason why. Mihamae, who had to spend a night in jail, is now charged with felony sexual abuse.

A CBS4 reporter briefly spoke to Mihamae on Sunday at her Longmont home but she said she had no comment about the case on the advice of her attorney.

Some Facebook users who are obviously frustrated with the strict procedures of the Transportation Safety Administration have set up a Facebook page expressing their support for Mihamae.

The “Acquit Yukari Mihamae” page had more than 1,600 supporters on Monday. News of its creation the brought some different reactions from travelers on Sunday at Denver International Airport.

“Calling it a felony is pretty silly and the TSA abuses people daily,” Drew Westphal, a resident of New York City, told CBS4.

“We have to play along for our security and the safety of the United States,” one traveler told CBS4. “I don’t think you should be able to put your hands on anybody, especially somebody who is trying to perform security,” Mike Garcia, of Brighton, said.

Mihamae told the New York Post in a phone interview that she is a frequent air traveler and that she runs into a problem with the TSA on a weekly basis.

  • sparks jabrones

    hahahaha, this is an outstanding story. August 1 is national grope back day. Every single traveler is being asked to rub ’em right back! if you are picked for a pat down, grope breasts, crotch, back side…you name it…there will be hundreds of thousands of arrests and perhaps the revolution will indeed be televised.

    • RobertG

      National Grope Back Day in honor of Yukari Mihamae is a winner! Oh please let me be on the jury.

    • wayne

      The TSA Should be charged with Felony sexual abuse by everyone that goes through being groped.

      • DanTheMan

        This woman is a hero. She had the guts to call their bluff. Now WE THE PEOPLE get to put TSA on trial. Where do I send my check?

      • DC

        TSA bases your choice to be groped or not to be groped on your choice to fly or not.

        Don’t fly and you won’t have to face the chances of being groped.

        Fly and you may be groped on occassion.

        Personally, I have never been groped nor patted down in either domestic nor international flights.
        I was personally interviewed in Schipol Airport in Amsterdam for changing my flight, but never groped.

      • hip_hop_abs

        TSA has no more rights than ordinary people. TSA or T&A are sexual abusers. Pull their funding by pulling your taxes.
        GOOGLE EXCLUDED INCOME. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

      • jerry

        Home Land Security will object to any one questioning their authority, even when they can’t even close the border. ( TSA)

    • Shane

      Yes, it is a “great” idea!

      With the ongoing debt crisis, the federal government needs all the revenue it can get. All of those $1000 to $10000 fines that idiotic air travelers will receive will really help out…

      • Danimal61

        Yo Shane, you need to go back to the country you came from since your obviously not an American, and anytime you want to step outside my friend just let me know…It would be a pleasure to punch your face. A real american(s) pleasure…Your not going to be so smart mouthed whn i finish with you…”boy”! And no this isn’t a threat..Its a fact :)

    • Sam

      Every person who interferes with TSA airport security, should be forever banned from commericial flights.

      • Rex

        TSA employees are just regular folk doing their jobs. Wasn’t that the justification given by many a Nazi – just following orders? It couldn’t have been wrong to gas Jews and incinerate their corpes if our superiors ordered us to do it. Surely it was for the greater cause of protecting the Father Land, for HOMELAND SECURITY. I hope you enjoy your Fascist States of Amerika, Sam.

      • john

        sam’s one of the people who are responsible for this mess. gladly vote for whoever will provide for them and not complain. good thing they weren’t around during the American Revolution, Sam would have been one of the ones perfectly ok with being taxed by Britain even though they didn’t get a vote.

        Nowadays, you get a vote without paying taxes.

      • OneOfThePeople

        Wow Sam what a good little brown shirt you are. Were you a teachers pet?

      • blaine

        if you really think the tsa contributes to any ones security then you are sadly misinformed .they do nothing but train the public to silently surrender their rights or effectively restrict the travel of law abiding citizen that do not wish to be sexually assaulted . the tsa has not stopped any kind of attacks at all and regularly fail test runs . the tsa needs to be banned and the people in charge should be charged as the crimminals that they are

      • tom

        Sam, you’re such a freakin’ government apologist lackey.

      • J.V.

        Are you an attorney who only represents sex perverts or do you go to the airport just to watch and to pleasure yourself while the TSA do their nasty deeds?

        I bet you can do little for yourself; always waiting for an agency to help you with it.

      • Rex

        Sam, You’re a clover.


      yes agreed! if they want to grope us and our children and grandparents then we should be able to grope them !! “unless” of course it is considered sexual assault- then -well then the TSA should be charged by EVERY local Sheriff for sexual assault on multiple counts! let the revolution begin!! i am in- I WILL NOT SUBMIT F*&^ you TSA

    • Filio Scotia

      The best way to fight these TSA terrorists is in the courtroom. Since she’s charged with a felony, she will be brought to trial. I am calling on the people of Colorado to find her Not Guilty. That should send a loud and clear message to the TSA that We the People are not happy with the way they’re treating us.

      • girlymctx

        Amen brother American.

  • titus

    What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

    • RajCaj

      The minute a plane runs into Sears Tower, because a young asian woman smuggled a tazer in her babies diapper bag, everyone will want to know HOW was a tazer allowed to get on the plane. People will call for other people’s heads to roll…blame will get thrown around, etc.

      Do you really think they are going to try this again with another middle eastern man, between the age of 18-27, dressed in full arabic garb? Or would they potentially use a demographic that is a little less conspicious???

      Use your head people.

      I’ll take a pat down any day, if it means I get home to my family safe.

      • CapitalSpirit

        TSA is security theater which makes us no safer, and which conditions the People to having their very persons violated just because the Government says it’s okay.

        Bin Laden may be dead, but I’m sure he’s whooping it up in hell because he’s managed to get Americans to surrender their bodies to a power-mad Government.

        The chances of being killed in a terrorist attack on (or by) a plane, statistically, are miniscule. The threat to our Liberties is clear and present.

        How many people died on 9/11? And how many innocent Americans have gotten needlessly traumatized at checkpoints in the past year? One of those is over and done; the other continues even as you read this. Which, then, is a greater act of terror?

        I shall die on my feet, before I ever live on my knees.

      • john

        You’re not very bright; a regular metal detector would detect a tazer. you don’t need the x-ray machine. we used the x-ray machines in afghanistan….until we realized they didn’t work. you’re better off with regular metal detectors and good human observation.

        WHen is the last time Israel had someone sneak onto a plane with weapons? they dont’ use these things and they have some of the best secured airports in teh world.

      • marg1

        False sense of security. You have been duped.

      • marcin

        You obviously don’t know history.

        You surrender your liberty for security, you will have no liberty and no security.

      • SilenceDogood

        Good grief. Tazers [sic] are already getting on planes.

      • Dave

        I would rather than happen than give away any more rights

      • Bucko

        RajCaj, what are you mumbling about? You sound like you’re broadcasting from another planet.

        HELLO?! That’s the very point so many are making. There are reports and witnesses that claim the TSA waves through people wearing full Muslim garb for fear of being “politically incorrect.” Waves them through and strip-searches the Scandinavian-looking little-old-lady.

        What part of the oh-so-simple equation don’t you understand? It’s a sham. You’ve been cozened and conditioned. Get your head outta the sand.

      • CleanFun

        RajCaj, You’re a sniveling coward who needs to take his own advice about “Use your head”. Your concept is adolescent and poorly thought out.

        Terrorism only stops when we stop allowing it to effect us by stripping us of our freedoms. When you give in to terrorism, like condoning TSA, it’s like feeding a starving bear. It only serves to energize them and increase their appetite.

        You realize that 9/11 hijackers didn’t even have tazers right? They had box cutters. And those are still being snuck on to planes today.

      • c

        “because a young asian woman smuggled a tazer in her babies diapper bag,”

        Most have no issue with TSA searching diaper bags… your point is a fail.

      • Matt

        “I’ll take a pat down any day, if it means I get home to my family safe.”

        I would rather die a free man in a terrorist attack than a man enslaved by a socialist tyrannical government.



        1776 IS THE ANSWER TO 1984

      • LTCB

        Matt, below, you’re part of the problem. You’re a sheep and don’t even know it. Our ancestors fought and died over lesser issues than what we willingly let the TSA do to us today. Your lack of concern borders, if not exceeds, that of treason. If you ever took the oath to serve and defend, then you’re in violation of that oath. It doesn’t stop just because you “got out”. The oath is a lifetime affair and especially so for all citizens who have served in the military or government. Every TSA agent in the nation should stand up for the nation and rrefuse to violate the rights of our citizens. You should all quit your jobs. Same goes for those of you in the air travel industry. Boycott the suckers. They understand the pain they feel in their wallets.

      • Kestrel

        You are an idiot –TSA has never stopped a terrorist going through security. They never will… that is because anybody with a little technical background can evade TSA security and/or take an aircraft down. If the terrorist really wanted to nock aircraft out of the sky they would be doing it on a routine basis. The naked body scanners are about making money – the groping is about intimidating people to accept the naked body scanners.

      • Bob Dobalina

        I would rather die as a victim of a “terrorist attack” than be spied on, treated like a criminal at every turn, and live in a police state. How many “terrorists” has the TSA actually caught? ZERO! You are more likely to be struck by lightning TWICE in your life than to be a victim of a “terrorist” attack. You are more likely to die from a bee sting or snake bite than be a victim of a “terrorist” attack. Over three hundred thousand people die as a result of prescription drugs each year, but the Feds aren’t subjecting the Big Pharma companies to stricter standards. If you think the Feds are actually concerned about your safety… The TSA patdowns are about psychological dominance and control grid conditioning rather than “safety”. Better to live 1 day as a lion than 1000 days as a lamb.

      • ertdfg

        Exactly, the TSA stops this.. which is why they found a stun gun on a plane last week… because the TSA was there to… find it after someone took it on the plane through security.

        Oh, the TSA didn’t catch it? So your hypothetical could happen with or without the Thousands Standing Around that you expect to stop this sort of thing?

        Oh well, at least they’ll still be groping people, hassling the elderly, and stealing from your luggage… the few things they’ve succeeded in doing since implemented.

        Be proud of the rude pervy thieves that you’re defending… admit the only things they’ve succeeded in doing. Or maybe keep lying… yeah, that’s probably a better idea.

        There’s a bigger chance your plane crashes than a terrorist attack. Time to take the tit out of your mouth and grow up and stop relying on a corrupt system.

      • KJPS

        None of the terrorists on 9-11 wore “full eastern garb”. Nothing security is doing at checkpoints will prevent another 9-11. A HUNDRED 9-11s will not justify the incompetent breaches of person going on. If you want to live in a slave society, feel free to hide in your closet when the rest of us come to take back our dignity and liberty. It’s where you belong.

      • Yankee Doodle Retrocon

        There is a solution, but TSA isn’t it.

        Here it is… Let all licensed concealed carry permit holders carry when they travel. You will NEVER have another hijacking again, and the flight attendants will be far more courteous.

      • SK

        This isn’t about keeping us safe. If it is about protection, then why aren’t they following Israel’s example for screening potential threats? The TSA is conditioning Americans for a police state. Why else are they bypassing Muslims, picking out old women and small children for humiliating searches, forcing family members to watch and do nothing?

      • Yankee Doodle Retrocon

        Hmmm… “asian woman” huh…


      • jerry

        They found a tazer on a Jet Blue plan, no one knows how it got there. Good work TSA.

      • jerry

        After a groping can I get back in line? Seems pretty selfish not to reciprocate.

      • jshuey

        A sheeple answer. You willingly surrender your rights and dignity for a promise of security that can never be kept.

      • Bill Fisher

        Clearly, you have no idea what you’re talking about. Learn the facts before you spout of nonsense. TSA is a useless and abusive agency and provides no real security to anyone but job security for criminals.

      • PowerPC

        Using your logic, the perfect way to get a weapon or bomb on an airliner would be a young Middle Eastern male decked out in full Arab garb! You said that they would never try it again and the TSA thinks a lot like you do. So, the best way is in a way the TSA does not expect. They think that a 96 year old grandmother or a 6 year old or a 18 month old in diapers is going to be the next terrorist threat. After all they get all of the attention.

      • Gary Chambers

        How do you know that’s what it means? TSA is not/will not/can not guarantee you anything. How did you come to expect that?

      • Alan

        Security does not exist in nature nor do the children of men experience it. Avoiding risk is no safer in the long run than exposure. If you need Mommy and Daddy TSA to wipe your backside for you, perhaps you should just place yourself under house arrest so you can completely fulfill your exchange of freedom for security and leave the rest of the world to people with courage.

      • Not Flying

        Yes, I do. Because TSA refuses to profile so middle eastern men are not being referred for secondary screening. Just the disabled, the elderly and small children. Apparently molesting middle eastern men isn’t enough fun for the TSA agents. Those who are willing to sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

      • Paul Mendez

        Raj, ever since 9/11 happened, the citizenry without the TSA will never let another terrorist act follow through. You forget Todd Beamer and Flight 93? Though they were obviously not proactive in their last moments, they took down the terrorists. Can you say that about the TSA? Has the TSA ever caught a terrorist? The answer is they never will!! The citizens onboard (using common sense and relying on each other’s safety) will be looking out for terrorists without being politically correct and do stupid pat downs. And that Raj hero, will be the ultimate deterrent. Not a bunch of touchy feely nonsense TSA workers.

      • Mac Daddy

        So RajCaj, how will the tazer in the diaper bag be found if the TSA agents are all busy squeezing woman’s breasts and crotches? How does the tazer in the diaper bag get found if the TSA is busy squeezing my chest and crotch? Did you know Muslim doctors are implanting explosive devices in the rectums and in the skin of terrorists (who are still young Muslim men from places like Yemen)?

        I can understand feeling up Muslim breasts but are you willing to submit to fingers up your anus? I don’t know about your anus but mine is tinged by a sign which reads “Severe Tire Damage – Do Not Enter”

      • BigDaddyDK

        Feeling up little children is child molestation too. What’s your point? Is it OK to do because they’re “just following orders”? I think we ruled that out as a defense at Nuremberg.

      • Mac Daddy

        Big Daddy, Mac Daddy couldn’t agree with you more!

    • CrispyJay

      It’s not sexual abuse if there is no sexual intent or sexual pleasure derived. No more than kicking or punching a man in the testicles during a fight. You may claim that is assault (perhaps justifiable) but not sexual assault unless there is some missing information. If mere contact with breasts or genitals is a sexual act, then doctors, nurses, AND TSA SCREENERS are guilty of the same thing.

      • John

        CrisyJay you are wrong! Sexual assult/abuse is about POWER and CONTROL rather than sexual intent or sexual pleasure. This is commonly known and universally accepted in modern psychology. Since Power, control, humiliation, and domination is exactly the goal of our government over us then the TSA agents who act for the government are literally sexually abusing the public. Thats right: your government is sexually abusive. America is becoming a police state. I for one appreciate what this woman did. I see her as a hero who stood up to tyranny. There are plenty more people who are fed up too. We come in all shapes and sizes. We will prevail in the end.

      • girlymctx

        Who says they aren’t getting any sexual gratification? I think I read somewhere that the TSA had hired a criminal sex abuser. Criminals are being hired.mark my words. Once Obama is out of office we will be getting to the truth of all these deceptions!

    • Bob Dobalina

      Sexual abuse indicates that a sexual organ was abused, right? Breasts, even big juicy breasts, are not sexual organs. Breasts are on the female body to feed the chillwrens. Only in a country with such puritan laws could anybody be ignorant enough to consider a breast as a sexual organ.

      • WestHoustonGeo

        “Such Puritan Laws”?
        I invite you to go and critisize the “putitan laws of Iran, Saudi Arabia, et al.
        Speak loudly and grpope fervently and examine the results.

      • BigDaddyDK

        Try that defense in court when you grab a woman’s breasts, or when you rub a child the wrong way on the bottom. Sexual abuse under the law is not limited to the sex organs, but constitutes an entire array of acts that are sexual in nature.

        Based on your comment, you, sir, are a complete idiot.

      • Celeste Christi

        Following your logic Granny can’t be charged with sexual abuse.

  • ivanthedestroyer

    Yes, Americans, How Dare You Question your Authority? You know, if your founders could see you now, they would spit in your face. A people so cowardly that they will not defend their own children from being molested by strangers deserve neither liberty nor freedom.

    • David

      I couldn’t agree more. It’s pathetic what we’ve come to in this country just to feel an illusion of safety. Ask many of the air travelers and they’ll say “better safe than sorry”. I’m looking forward to the logical next step of a mandatory anal probe.

      Too late. I think they’re unionized thanks to Odummer. More votes for a desparate man.

    Seems perfectly reasonably to me, good for the goose good for the gander.
    How do you like it you TSA idiots!

  • Touchy-Feely

    If I were a terrorist, I would certainly use the TSA role as an entry point to secure areas – more so than impersonating a 90-year-old grandma. Citizens have a responsibility to extend the TSA procedures to all for the benefit of society.

    • symptomchecker

      Yes someone gets it! This comment is great and makes me laugh a little too. It seems that most of the U.S.A. citizens get it, liberals and conservatives and moderates too. There istoo much government involvement in our lives which in fact does not make us safer. I hope for CHANGE that will use common sense and the tried and tested security which has been used successfully in Israel for years. It will take time and perhaps the people applying for these jobs will have to be capable of more thought than “hmmm did I miss a spot under her breast, better go over it again…” in order to pardon the pun, handle the job. Perhaps the next inhabitant of the Whitehouse can handle the TSA union or not like Reagan handles the air traffic controllers who went on strike. And put a common sense system into place, private or public.

    I hope it doesn’t come to this, but it seems like it will only take another 9/11 type incident to make people realize that a pat down is NO BIG DEAL, and for your protection. How quickly we forget. You can drive if you’d like, or take a boat if needed to get where you are going. People need to get over it.

    • Robert

      Raa.. If I wanted to take down a plane, I would simply slap a magnetic bomb to the bottom an airplane. I would cross the tarmac .. probably wearing an airport staff jumpsuit … I would be going into the building and waiting in the grope line! The infuriating thing about all this is that is not EVEN trading freedom for security .. it is trading freedom for nothing.

      • Robert

        I mean of course that I would NOT be waiting in the grope line.

    • ivanthedesroyer77

      Idiot. There were no bombs, guns, or missiles used by the 9/11 hijackers. You are a Stupid Sheep. Give me Ten Strong-Men and Tomorrow I could easily take control of a Plane. I could let the TSA play with my BALLS ALL GD DAY!!!


      • truther

        Thank you Ivan… and Americans have become such weaklings that you could most likely do it with 3 not the 10 you state.

      I ask simply, R, can you name one TSA groping that prevented anything? Just one? Thought not.

    • spaceman

      Oh yea, no big deal. That silly little thing called the 4th Amendment.

      • Rex

        The problem with the Fourth Amendment is the weasleword “unreasonable.” Guess who gets to define “unreasonable?” Yep, the government.

    • ertdfg

      Exactly, sure they grope people, soil the elderly in their own bodily wastes, and steal from thousands of bags.. but they stop 40% of weapons during tests… and that will save us.

      Only by having a 40% solution can we feel safe; and knowing these people who are standing there catching slightly fewer than half of all proscribed items passing through the gate are doing this job makes all the robbery, offense, delays, and rude behavior worthwhile..

      Who wouldn’t willingly be robbed and groped if they knew that someone who wanted to kill them only had a 60% chance to get a weapon through to do so?

      Oh, and the TSA has quit allowing reporting of their success/fail rates on weapon/bomb tests… any guesses why?

    • truther

      You need to get yourself a copy of the Federalist Papers and read them. They’re free, just google it. Once yoou have completed the prerequisite study you will be armed and informed, possibly even prepared to understand the real picture! Untill then please go away and let the grown ups talk.

      “A People who would sacrifice a little essential freedom for a little temporary security will deserve neither and loose both!” — Benjamin Franklin–

      • Rex

        Actually, everyone should read the anti-Federalist papers. Those guys all predicted that the Constitution, if ratified, would give us the government that we have. The fact that the rabid nationalist, Hamilton, so vigorously fought for ratification should give pause. If Hamilton was for it, that should have been a good enough reason to oppose it. I say go back to the Articles of Confederation.

  • Michelle

    LOL, the evil TSA fails to see the irony.

  • mda

    I’ve flown twice in July and have not flown in the last decade. I have no record and was searched twice! I guess being a white middle aged male makes me TSA-feel-up bait!!! I have no been out of the country for 20 years… The TSA are a Nazis-based organization t intimidate Americans! They should be thrown in jail and the liberals who supported them should be fired and charged with sexual assault!

  • Ranger01

    The airlines lost my business when the TSA got involved and started naked screening and groping. I will drive. I will not go abroad until this is stopped.

    • Goldie

      Take a ship abroad.

    • Dee Jay

      I also refuse to fly or ride the rails (VIPR alert!) .

    • Not Flying

      Me too. Drove from AZ to NY to visit my family

  • bandejo

    The pat downs do no good as they cant pat down peokle in burkas or young middle eastern men but must be politically correct and concentrate on children and grandmothers. This woman should be givenb a medal and elected to congress.

    • Frank

      Is it possible this is done to humiliate Americans? This is causing considerable harm and must at all costs be stopped. Federal and State laws consider unwanted touching as a crime, yet to travel if you refuse the grouping, you don’t get to travel. As we’ve seen recently, if a parent stands up for his/her child, they are arrested. Also, we should look at the TSA agents. What type of person wants to go to work to do GROPING on strangers? Do they have criminal records? Badge numbers and names should be accessed and checked out because a normal person wouldn’t be interested in touching ‘junk’ as a job description. Let’s get real. The other day, while TSA was groping the plane load of passengers, a woman was allowed onto the plane with a 3″ knife. Not once, but twice. Where does this get us but humiliated. This must stop.

    • swmchick

      Well said!

    • Nativam

      Right on, Bandejo.

    • Hammer

      Because protecting us is not the purpose. Treating you like your a prisoner and breaking your will is the purpose. I would warn them first that touching me inappropriately that legally is sexual assault as we see by the tsa response to this event, will result in me “defending” myself. We need to back up anybody at the airport that faces this problem.

    • LTCB

      This could become a “Bunker Hill” moment, if they don’t go into some sexual perverse behaviour enmasse. The TSA should be disbanded. The give you no actual security for the un=Constitutional searches they conduct daily. I don’t care if you don’t mind it or “want to be safe”. That’s a crock. Our ancestors fought this form of dictatorship all over the world only to have it land on our own back yards. Impeach the rascals, prosecute the perverts and return to the Constitution.

    • Michael Mowry

      “GD” the TSA criminal organization. This woman has internal fortitude. Not like most american Sheep 7 Slaves! 1776 Now! “V”

    • SK

      Want to bypass TSA security? Wear Muslim clothing when flying.

    • Darkhorserunning

      Ever notice how more potential mass murders on airplanes have been stopped by their fellow passengers than have ever been stopped by any TSA agent?

    • Mike

      TSA needs to criminally profile terrorists, like Israel does on EL AL flights, and concentrate on them, instead of groping people with no probable cause or even a hint of reasonable suspicion. The FBI profiles serial killers, why don’t we profile the people likely to kill us on airplanes?

    • kerry

      As they say you will only get the Tyranny you are prepared to put up with . This is not the freedom that so many died for . She is a hero .

    • Daniel Montgomery

      If only everyone would grope back. It’s called self-defense. You grab my junk, I grab yours. If she goes to jail then I have lost all faith in the government. Nevermind that ship has sailed. Give her a congressional medal of honor for standing up to fascist sexual assaults by playing them at their own evil game.

    • Mark Jessup

      This most interesting comment leads me to what I consider a stroke of genius: ALL U.S. citizens should begin wearing veils, robes and burkas, carrying Korans, and just murmur a bunch of nonsense about ‘allah-this, allah-that, allah-99-dollars-plus-tax’, etc., and be included in that immune group of travelers who are NEVER patted down or subjected to the fascist groping of the federal T&A goons.

      this is to you and all the other dumb-as-ses out there- if you don’t want the security don’t fly- they may not be enjoyable and are surely a pain in the butt but if it stops one fu–ing retrard from killing hundreds of people so be it- as far as this stupid wench she should be arrested and put in jail for a long time- I don’t fly often but when I do at least I can feel a little safer doing so- the tsa people are not the friendliest things in the world but look at what they have to deal with- alot of stupidity-so if you don’t want to go thru security you should not be allowed to fly-everyone is concerned about their rights but when you are dead you don’t have any to bring you back- tsa keep doing what you do and the devil with the people think.

  • squeekeron

    Abolish the TSA now!

  • Donna Franklin

    You go girl! Too bad none of the “parents” had the balls to stop their children from being molested.

  • C. Brown

    She totally is a hero. These people need to be, AT THE VERY LEAST, jailed. U hope her case is one that returns us to the constitution.

  • Lance burton

    They will make an example of her, and find some “friendly” judge to throw the book at her. All designed to get you to comply.

    • Kingfish

      Well at least Holder can get a job at the TSA sniffing baby and old peoples depends for explosives.
