No Felony Charges For Longmont Woman In TSA Groping Case

LONGMONT, Colo. (CBS4) – No felony charges will be filed against the Colorado woman who allegedly sexually assaulted a Transportation Security Administration agent in Phoenix.

On Tuesday the Maricopa County district attorney decided to turn the case of Yukari Miyamae, 61, of Longmont over to city prosecutors. She could still be charged with a misdemeanor.

Police say Miyamae grabbed the female agent’s left breast, squeezed and twisted it with both hands on July 14 at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Miyamae was getting ready to board a flight from Phoenix to Denver.

Miyamae’s attorney Judd Golden says his client was violated, endangered and threatened by the actions of TSA agents. She denies doing anything wrong.

Golden released a statement Tuesday, saying Miyamae is a self-employed translator, author and radio producer. He used the following words to describe how the situation unfolded:

Ms. Miyamae says she told TSA agents she wanted to be screened by the metal detector gate. She did so out of concern for excessive radiation exposure from the full-body scanners, as she is a frequent business traveler.

Her request was denied. She was soon surrounded by TSA agents. One TSA agent, a tall woman, approached Ms. Miyamae, who is only five feet tall.

Ms. Miyamae felt panicked and experienced a volatile aversion to the TSA personnel violating her personal physical space. She felt endangered and threatened based upon prior traumatizing security pat-downs, repugnance at the prospect of being touched again in such a violent and undignified manner, and instinctively pushed the female TSA agent away.

Golden says Miyamae is considering offers to do interviews but so far hasn’t committed to doing one.

Some Facebook users who are obviously frustrated with the strict procedures of the Transportation Safety Administration set up a Facebook page over the weekend called “Acquit Yukari Mihamae” expressing their support for Mihamae.

A different Facebook page was set up by friends called the Yukari Miyamae Legal Defense Fund.

      How about we have special flights just for you morons who don’t want to be searched for your own safety. You can all be in danger together without endangering people who understand that it is necessary

        Obviously you lack the understanding of “Security” – TSA has not found a single terrorist, and in point of fact has allowed more than one to fly. All that at a $1 billion plus a year and Americans being “Guilty until proven innocent” Stalin, Hitler, and Chairman Mao would be proud of people like you.

      2. Terry Black says:

        Sign me up. Taking a trip without being groped or radiated. Sounds like I.ll be taking a lot more trips.

      3. TexanPatriot says:

        We would love to oblige you ma’am. We’ll just take over Southwest Airlines, let our passengers carry their guns on board. We don’t need no stinin’ Air Marshals who just boot a paying passenger out of their First Class seating, and just simply sleep through the flight. We’ll give young men in long flowing robes the critical eye.

        Hijacking problem solved!

        So please, write Obama and TELL him yes, that’s the solution we rednecks in Jesusland want.

      4. Anisha says:

        Ok Moron, just how are u safer when TSA sticks their hands down a child’s pants or in the diaper of a 95 year old who couldn’t take over a plane if their life depended on it? You obviously don’t get any and enjoy being molested by strangers. But don’t make the rest of us – and our children – suffer these indignaties in the name of this security sideshow. You’re a thousand times more likely to be murdered in your community than suffer a terrorist attack aboard an airplane, yet we don’t allow police on the streets to randomly grope a child’s crotch in the name of crime control. I’ll keep my liberty and take my chances.

      5. Kris Long says:

        Apparently you have never seen any sort of reality outside what the television feeds you, but for the *entire* history of flight, and still in much of the modern world, the “morons”‘ system, what we used to call air travel, works and has worked without your pet draconian measures. How many terrorists have actually been stopped BEFORE they got on an airplane by this invasive and, yes, unconstitutional system of compulsory violation was put in place? And don’t go :”Well before it was in place, 19 got through and turned our world upside down” because a> those people could still likely get on planes today b> we still have almost no accountability from the systems that WERE in place on 9.11.2001 and c> we continue to have threats end up on planes fairly regularly no matter how ridiculous and misanthropic TSA procedures become. Where does it stop? Apparently not when terrorists cease to effectively blow anything on a plane up for a decade😦

        No, you can have the special flights. we’ll call ours “air travel” and yours can be “Super Secret Squirrel Rape Airlines” or whatever you want to call it. Just keep it the hell out of my pants and those of the people I love.

      6. American Man says:

        Well Sandy, obviously you like to be violated, and you are delusional , brain washed very well , that this is the answer to everyone’s safety. The made you so scared that they can just have you do anything , because they are in control and you need to submit.
        Are your brain waves accepting the new wave of implanted devises in suicide bombers, and lets not forget the method of concealing explosives in the intestinal track?? How will you feel when you have to back up to a machine which sends a camera probe up your interior back side !! Oh I understand you would need a clean sanitized probe, of course. Well at least we are safe, right, even though Israel doesn’t do any of this, just good observations, and picking out the suspicious ones. Oh well what do all us morons know!!

      7. GregoryAZ says:

        I agree with the replies We are not any safer, just voilated and irradiated. After reading this story i found another

        http://stlouis.cbslocal.com/2011/07/20/boy-scout-leader-jailed-for-bullet-in-fanny-pack/

        To skip to the highlights…this is the wrapup “It’s unclear how the bullet was not detected by security at Kansas City International Airport and in Nassau.”

        Yes..so much safer.

      8. Dilligas says:

        Sandy,

        I don’t need to be searched for MY own safety. If you do, I’m sure that someone will be happy to provide you with a place you can stay where they can look after you for YOUR safety around the clock.

      9. saveup says:

        Sandy, you need to seriously consider living in North Korea..It would be heaven for you. Violation of individual rights from every orifice.

      10. Bucko says:

        Sandy in Ohio — I have a better idea: we have NORMAL flights where normal people get on board a plane and fly without requisite molestation — and if anybody tries any funny business, the normal people know what to do.

        THEN, we can have a “special” type of flying arrangement that caters to sheep-like, insecure individuals like you. You can get groped, prodded, probed, and felt up to your heart’s content so that you can “feel safe.” You can be abused and manhandled so that you develop a false sense of security. Oh, but anybody with Muslim garb will still get waved through without any scrutiny to board your “secure” flight. (Wouldn’t want to be politically incorrect, after all.)

        How does that sound, dear?

      11. BigDaddyDK says:

        Apparently the concept of the 4th Amendment has eluded you. The TSA is a government agency conducting searches of people without probable cause. There would be less reason to complain if airlines conducted their own security because at least then it would not be the government doing it to us. However, the limitations on the government codified in the Constitution are not intended to be applied at the whims of the government. They are there to protect the rights of the individual. If you cannot comprehend the magnitude of the government’s intrusion on individual liberties then I invite you to hand over everything to them and relinquish every shred of individuality you have.

        Sandy Ohio is my cousins baby sister, and she is 285 LBS, and gender confused.
        She hasn’t worked in 10 years since the insurance co she worked for fired her for falsely filing a sexual harassment suit against her manager, a married man.
        He was supposed to shrivel up and crawl away, but he fired her instead. She has been sponging off her mother and father ever since.
        I wish Sandy would get a job, and stop bothering folks who have serious issues with the TSA.
        My aunt is so impressed, she emailed my wife the link to this page so we could all laugh at her and her hokey username, she is really Sharon, from Long Island.

      17. Arthur Carlson says:

        You are the type of linguine spined wimp who will stand by and watch their wife and daughter be violated by the soldiors because in some subservient rationalizing part of your brain you feel it will be necessary to your security. All the brave real men that fought and died for your freedom and you just throw it away, you sir sicken me.

      18. pcon says:

        How about we have a special country for you morons who don’t want the BIll of RIghts, and who are willing to be searched without probable cause, spied on and molested by the agents of a police state.

        I actually do endorse your idea. When the flights reserved for the clueless sycophants and government shills are canceled due to low demand, the market will have disproven the government’s lie.

        We’ll just form two lines – one for those who value freedom, and one for those who cower in fear and require a BIg Sister to look over them.

      19. Stacey in Texas says:

        A million thanks to all you champions of liberty who replied to ignorant Sandy Sheeple in Ohio. Sometimes I feel as if no one but my husband and I understand how wrong these degrading, humiliating and ILLEGAL searches are. The United States of America may not be perfect, but I love my country and she was founded on the concepts of life, LIBERTY and the pursuit of happiness. Without freedom, the others are meaningless. I do NOT want to live in a police state where stripping people naked an/or sexually assaulting them for nothing more than the desire to use modern modes of travel is seen as normal and *safe*. From my heart, thank you again–your responses to this pathetic excuse of an American gives me hope. I am so grateful that there are still other people here who know what this country is based on and know that security theater is a very poor substitution for liberty.

    Hero! TSA agents should be tarred and feathered!!

    1. Granby says:

      She is a hero! TSA must be made to pay for their crimes!

    2. Avery Windcastle says:

      Agents don’t make the rules, they just follow them. Tar and feather the administrators who make the rules.

      1. infowars.com says:

        Note to all TSA employees: Revisit the Nuremberg Trials. Those who follow orders are NOT exempt from the crimes they have committed and WILL BE held accountable.

      2. Marc says:

        They enjoy their “power”. Tar and feather them all.

      3. HHB3 says:

        The guards at Nazi concentration camps made the same claims. “I was just following orders”

      4. Lee D says:

        This is the same excuse made throughout history by those who do wrong in the name of the government. The Agents choose to follow the “rules” rather than their common sense. If they, collectively, chose not to abuse their fellow Americans then the TSA would have to change their rules.

      5. Mike Landry says:

        Yep just like the nazi’s go after the ones that give the orders not the ones that carry them out. We will all be on the train soon enough

      6. CSATexan says:

        That is what the cops said during the civil rights movements. I wonder how proud they are of unleashing dogs on black teenagers.

      7. Ed says:

        TSA Agents WILLING follow the rules and sexually assault people. They are not FORCED to do it.

      8. truthmatters says:

        Yes we will be on the trains to the incinerators built to kill us en mass. One of those train death camps is at FEMA’S Beech Grove IN death camp facility. YES these death camps are very real and await US patriots for incineration when they begin the process of elimination. Do your own research and learn the truth about what those wonderful European monarchs and super rich bankers have in store for America. This is being done right under our noses and we sleep like sheep waiting to be led to our slaughter.

      10. SmarterThanLibs says:

        That is the same thing Nazi concentration camp guards said when they were arrested for war crimes.

        “I was just following orders!”

      11. RJM says:

        Thats what Nazi concentration camp guards said in their ‘defense’ of their own actions “Just doing my job.”

      12. Susan says:

        The nazi’s and the SS were also following orders! Duh!

      13. CKCM says:

        The Nazi concentration guards tried that excuse at the Nurenberg Trials; it didn’t wash. They went to jail,. The point being that individuals have an obligation to refuse an order which is perceived to be immoral or unethical.. Even in the military, under the Law of War, soldiers have a right to question an order which they in good faith perceive perceive to be illegal. As happened in the LT Calley incident in Vietnam.

      14. James says:

        Yes, I was only following Herr Hitlers’ orders.

      15. Michelle says:

        Yes, but the TSA agents DO NOT have to work for the TSA. They choose to so they are in cahoots with in this instance.

      16. IraqVet says:

        As long as people are willing to go along with and follow illegal rules, they are all guility of complicity…I was just doing my job and following orders defense failed at Nueremberg.

      17. Anisha says:

        Nazis just followed orders but we still hold them accountable for not using their heads. Just what kind of degenerate molests children all day for a living? I don’t care if they were told to do it, these perverts are criminals and should be in jail.

    3. Paul Roth says:

      She is no hero. We are continuously being assaulted by foreign nationalists who want to kill us. Granted, its no fun having to pass through security, pat downs and machines. However, welcome to 2012. I’d much rather be screened, touched, and pat down than find out someone got through with some dangerous device. My take -if you don’t like that pat downs, find some other way to travel.

      1. Marc says:

        Paul, The line has to be drawn somewhere. I mean, patting down grandma and 6 year old kids? Get real. This is more about conditioning us as a society to accept a police state than actually securing the planes. You’re a good little lemming. I’m sure the TSA appreciates your blind acceptance.

      2. Adam Smith says:

        Absolutely. The TSA is all about breaking people to the state. They fondle and molest you when you know you are no threat and they know you are no threat. You are expected to have TSA agents leering at nude pictures of you, trading them with others, fondling you and your children and to kowtow to all of it because they have a badge and are doing the will of Obama and Big Sister. The 2012 election cannot come soon enough.

      3. pred3000 says:

        You sound like you work for the TSA. If you truly believe this, then you volunteer to be patted down every single time you go into an airport.

      4. Durazac says:

        That is patently false – this was a domestic flight – show me a list of say – 5 foreign nationalists who recently boarded a domestic flight and was caught. I know you want to say 9-11 – but those men were PERMITTED to travel with razor knifes. And yes, I did find another way to travel. I used to fly once a month or so but have been able to drive instead for the last year. It’s slower, but far more enjoyable.

      5. thomas jefferson says:

        they found a TASER in one of the southwest planes last week,,,, do you feel safer now that you got your junk touched….. its all a false sense of security….. become self reliant and protect yourself! Manup

      6. ChurchSox says:

        What? How about, if you’re afraid to fly without an invasive screening, YOU find some other way to travel? There is no consensus that TSA procedures do anything at all other than comfort the cowardly.

      7. Dilligas says:

        Paul, It must be difficult for you to get up every day and leave the house (and I am making the presumption that you do leave the house). The chance you have being killed randomly by just about anything (drunk driver, car crash, being hit as a pedestrian, etc.) is much greater than you dieing in a plane – let alone a terrorist attack on a plane. To put it in perspective, if I recall the stats correctly, you’re at least 8 times more likely to die from a lightning strike. You have a better chance of winning the lottery (more than once). So, as others have mentioned – if it scares you that much, then the terrorists have won (against you) and you need to find another way to travel.

      8. Bucko says:

        Time to clean out your headgear, Paul. Get some new perspective. You sound well brainwashed and conditioned. People like you are a totalitarian’s dream.

    5. TexanPatriot says:

      What REALLY happened is a simple get away from me gesture that happened to “touch” an agent….TSA Goons typically inflate their statements to the cops, they’ve been caught in THAT LIE before.

      If you bad mouth them they call the cops and say you are using profanity and to arrest you for disorderly conduct. If you decline the pornoscanner, you are treated like a criminal — on purpose.

      Time to impeach this Impostor visiting this upon us….!

        For some people, flying is necessary. We should never have to give up a constitutional right in order to enjoy a lawful activity. What the TSA is doing is not about national security, but about power.

      1. Alice Polarbear says:

        I suspect that Christopher FanSaw Franzen is either a TSA drone or at very least a koolaid-drinking Obama voter.

      2. Pilot.Dave says:

        “I suspect that Christopher FanSaw Franzen is either a TSA drone or at very least a koolaid-drinking Obama voter.”

        Wouldn’t he be both ? Assuming its a “he” and not a “she” writing from 601 South 12th Street, Arlington VA….

        Now, if after years of $1 billions per year TSA actually caught a SINGLE terrorist, maybe the Sheelpe could have something.

    2. rick says:

      Get a grip on reality! The TSA is creeping and expanding their “mission” as much as they can get away with. Buses, trains, checkpoints on the roads, malls, ball games. If it doesn’t stop, they will be molesting up your teenager all in the name of “safety” at your local mall soon!!

      Christopher I challange you to find out why people are up in arms about this. instead of name calling look into why the FBI and Police are NOT allowed to touch you inapropriety unless they are making an arrest. Look up innocent ntil proven guilty. Look up privacy and why Americans are able to have privacy while other countries such as China does not. Seek the truth. You have the power.. we all do. We must all stand together or we will all hang together. Tyranny is at your front door. These machine were put in by Michael Chertoff who makes money off of them and his cousin wrote the propaganda hit piece about 9/11 in popular mechanics which no factual info was given.

    8. Richard says:

      Christopher:

      1 – Abolish the TSA

      2a – Buy a pair of Depends(tm) and fly, wetting yourself in private because you are scared of the one-in-billion chance of a bomb

      2b – Rent a limo and a teddy bear, and be driven to your destination in comfort. Depends(tm) are optional.

      Why should pro-fourth-amendment Americans be told to drive? Let the panty-soiling fascist fraidy-cats drive. Afraid of six year olds with plastic dinosaurs? Drive. Afraid of 6 ounce shampoo bottles? Drive.

      Optional Step 3 – Move to Saudi Arabia where their hatred of freedom is more in line with your personal beliefs (ironic that Islamic whackos and allegedly anti-Islamic whackos are nearly indistinguishable on their attitudes towards freedom).

      Christopher,

      So I guess any time the government comes in and hijacks free enterprise industries through totalitarian and police actions, that we have to exit that free market due to their actions…or that is a reflection of our bad judgement? What a central planning communistic idea! Maybe you should run for elective office, and by the time elections are also done away with and our leaders are “appointed”, you’ll be in a position to help completely destroy liberty and free enterprise.

    11. chris Newman says:

      Yes, it’s perfectly OK to be groped by the TSA goons. If you don’t like it, even if you are a young child or an octogenarian, you are a moron. If you grope back you are committing felony sexual assault. Had enough government yet ?

    12. disapointvet says:

      you obviously miss the point, which is they have no right to search you like this in the first place. It’s the “illegal search” part of illegal search and seizure. What crime was this woman suspected of that she was going to be physically searched? if you are willing to just give up your rights, you deserve whatever happens to you. can you say baaaaaaaaaaa.

      You cowards who are willing to sacrifice “freedom” for security don’t deserve freedom. ONE of Your founders said that …WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE … MORON!

      BTW,

      The Above poster is Correct: Following Orders is not an Excuse to commit Crimes. Many Germans Hung for Following Orders. America set the standards for judgment and it is not exempt.

      Additionally, the 9/11 hijackers did not use anything that would have been construed as a weapon. They could do it again today if they wanted. People like you are just plain Stupid and YELLOW.

    17. Michelle says:

      It is the right of a free people to speak out when injustice occurs. The TSA does not keep us safe because it does not screen each individual or use proven screening techniques that work. Not to mention that as these travesties continue to occur and become more intrusive, the airline industry will nosedive and no one will be flying. Thanks to people like you.

    18. Pilot.Dave says:

      “Christopher FanSaw Franzen”

      Show us the LAW !!! I did NOT consent to sexual assault or illegal x-ray scanners (every state in the US has laws that all x-ray workers wear dosimeters at all times while using them, among other aspects being violated by TSA)

      No sir, the only “consent” is “We the Sheeple” not wanting the extra hassle of standing up for their rights. For this woman, I could see it in court – “so the accused did the exact same action as the accusing agent? Case dismissed”

    19. BigDaddyDK says:

      Hey, @$$hat. Some of us have no choice because we must travel internationally. I got news for you. I cannot drive my care to Europe or Asia. Read your Constitution — carefully. The 4th Amendment protects individuals from unreasonable search and seizure, which means that the government cannot search you without a warrant and/or probable cause. Choosing to travel by aircraft does not in and of itself constitute probable cause as no clear intent on my behalf to do harm is established by that single act.

    20. Bite Me says:

      So now you not only want us to comply with illegal search under the 4th amendment, you also want to supress our freedom of speech. Good little socialist, Stalin would approve.

  8. Templar X says:

    The TSA goons are about as sharp as bowling balls!

    Not guilty. I hope more people ‘spread the wealth’ right back to the TSA like this fine woman did.

    YUKARI MIYAME FOR PRESIDENT!

    you go girl

    1. Ruell says:

      and philly T, i’m sure you’re responsible for Obama being in office as well. you knee jerk reaction fools. If it feels good do it, right? Wake up people. When did this country lose its values and it’s people lose respect for one another? I have an answer, it’s when we kicked God out of schools, and the courtroom, and the military, and just about everything else. United we Stand, Divided we fall. We are falling ladies and gentlemen. Eventually all Empires fall, and y’all are doing your part to make sure this one does.

      1. D says:

        Actually it lost it’s values when we didn’t let Buddha into schools, courtrooms, and the military.

      2. This Jig Is Up says:

        @Ruell, God should never have been in the schools to begin with. It started a lot further back than than you think. News flash: the world was not created 3000 year ago in just 7 days.

  12. Rod Boone says:

    More Courage than Rosa Parks!

  13. Stephanie says:

    Case in point, it is a violation of our privacy and an abuse. Thank you, Yukari! If you can get charged with assault for doing the same thing they do to you, it is not security — it is abuse.

    1. Christopher FanSaw Franzen says:

      uhhhhhhh no. just no. When you CONSENT to it it’s not a violation of your privacy. You want to use a GOVERNMENT SERVICE, then follow the rules.

      1. Philly T says:

        airlines are privately owned, they’re not GOVERNMENT SERVICE< unless they're military craft, or
        Air Force One

        what a clown

      2. Don Woodson says:

        Franzen, you are a total twit. I hope you don’t dare call yourself an American citizen, because you are far to weak of a sheep.

      3. Taipan2900 says:

        The airlines are private, the TSA was forced on us by losers like you.

      4. Yirmin Snipe says:

        The ability to travel freely is a basic right people in a free country have, to expect that you need to consent to molestation in order to exercise those rights is insane.

      5. Christopher FanSaw Franzen says:

        Morons, TSA is gov’t. The airlines aren’t but you CANT GET TO THEM UNLESS YOU GO THROUGH TSA. Get a clue.

      6. COMMONSENSE says:

        AIRLINES ARE NOT GOVERMENT SERVICE YOU MORON,AND NO ONE HAS CONSENTED ANYTHING,THIS IS PLAIN AND SIMPLE .ITS AN ASSAULT ON OUR FREEDOMS

      7. Christopher FanSaw Franzen says:

        Taipon, Republicans forced this on America? I thought it was muslims…

      8. JustAGuy says:

        Uninformed sheeple!

        I have a family member who’s so compromised that she thought Republicans are the ones who want to raise taxes on us.

      9. Taipan2900 says:

        Christy, I knew you were a weak Liberal..It was Tom Daschle who is a Dem that pushed the TSA through the house. Bush sign the Bill, but he sided with the Progressives his last 4 years.

      10. TimG says:

        Republicans introduced it and Democrats reinforced it. Welcome to the two-faced one-party system. The only time one party argues with the other is for the purpose of Kabuki theater. The two-party system is a farce when both parties go after the same agenda of restricting people’s personal and financial liberties for the sake of freedom or fairness. It’s a rouse and I suggest you wake up.

      11. JustAGuy says:

        The “make-you-nude” scanner was introduced during Bush, but Bush had enough decency to NOT use it. Then Obama becomes president and now we get to have naked images taken of us and perfect strangers feeling us up!

        Welcome to the United States of Obama!

      12. Christopher FanSaw Franzen says:

        Commonsense, use your name dude. You did consent by buying your airline ticket and showing up. THAT IS CONSENT. And learn to read.

      13. NOMERCY55 says:

        YOURE NOTHING BUT A SHEEP….

      14. COMMONSENSE says:

        DO AS YOURE TOLD,FOLLOW YOUR MASTERS YOU PUPPET

      15. Todd says:

        Oh, I didn’t know air travel was a government service? Did Obama Nationalize the airlines too?

      16. Wilhelm says:

        She did NOT consent and flying is NOT a government service.

      17. infowars.com says:

        Last time I checked the government wasn’t allowed to break their own laws. Child molestation laws, sexual abuse laws, etc… We have rights in this country. Beleive me when you let them take your rights away you will have to fight like you never fought before to get them back. If you’re tired of hearing about this then maybe you should switch sides. Help us get rid of the criminals and still have your safety without being molested or having your rights taken away. Old ladys in wheelchairs and young kids are not a real threat. TSA has the requirement that they have a high school diploma OR one year experience. YES they can have NO high school diploma and ONE year experience in able to molest Americans. Do you really trust a person who can’t complete high school to do security? Really? If you feel that comfortable then all the drop outs should be patting you down everyday. Then you could really feel safe. As we went through school and received an education they were skipping class and now they are our masters telling us what is right and wrong and molesting kids and grandmas when they couldn’t pass a simple test in high school. Yeah.. not a good idea to trust these folks.

      18. Stephanie says:

        Where are the dogs, Christopher? No human needs to touch me inappropriately when there are other ways to legally “secure” a person while guarding their right to “be secure in their person”. Seriously, dogs work cheap. Cheaper than those scanners and 45 agents to surround a little white chick traveling with a 4 year old.

        Wake up, Christopher. We are not criminals. It is illegal for anyone of authority to treat Americans as such. It is illegal to search without a warrant. Buying a ticket is NOT consent to TSA assault on anyone. How else am I to see my mother in law in California on a week’s vacation? This abuse was just forced on us. I’ve since stopped traveling with my daughter – and the GOVERNMENT did it. Just don’t fly? That doesn’t cut it. I am American, and this is the absolute worst security theater in the world. Your argument is a joke.

      19. nunya says:

        Listen, the TSA was forced over private airlines. It is a violation of our rights, I know you feel safer, but dont be scared, you will never get out of this world alive anyway. Its obvious you are trying to backpeddle from your original statement. Obvious…..’dude’.

        You said it yourself, we cant get to the planes unless we go through THEM. What part of being allowed to move FREELY dont you understand? I bet cash you dont pay taxes and can barely vote.

        DING DONG … (CHRISTOPHER THE COWARD) THE GOVERNMENT IS THE PEOPLE!!! “Servants of the People:” ARE NOT ALLOWED BY THE CONSTITUTION TO CONDUCT “SEARCH AND SEIZURE” WITHOUT A WARRANT. You cannot just go searching people without “probable cause,” and in the case of CORPORATE AIRLINES, THEY DON’T EVEN HAVE A CASE!

        IF THE GOVERNMENT OWNED THE AIRLINES … STUPID … THEN THEY COULD TRY SOMETHING LIKE THIS Provided THE PEOPLE ALLOWED IT. THE GOVERNMENT IS FORBIDDEN FROM INTRUSIONS UPON PRIVATE ENTERPRISE.

        THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS TO SMACK THE GOVERNMENT ON THIS IT STINKS!!

        STICK TO BEING STUPID AND THROWING INSULTS …MAGGOT!

      23. Michelle says:

        Flying is NOT a government service. The airlines are privately owned. Unfortunately the government thinks it runs the airline industry and all flying in general. The government itself is NOT FOLLOWING THE RULES by using fear to promote the direct violation of the 4th amendment. When they show me the warrant and have probable cause then they can pat me down.

  14. T Bonham says:

    I like the idea of Tar and feathers. They can grope you but its sexual assult if you grope them????

  21. Hank Warren says:

    Rosa Parks of the anti-TSA movement. Useless TSA, yet another violation of our rights. Add it to the list of gov’t violations of our rights:
    They violate the 1st Amendment by placing protesters in cages, banning books like “America Deceived II” and censoring the internet.
    They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns.
    They violate the 4th and 5th Amendment by molesting airline passengers.
    They violate the entire Constitution by starting undeclared wars for foreign countries.
    Impeach Obama, vote for Ron Paul.

    1. Todd says:

      Hank, Hank, Hank. You had me until I read the fiction. I have to agree on violations of the B.O.R and the current administrations use of the Constitution as toliet paper but the whole 9/11 conspiracy is a bit much. It totally negates your argument.

      1. MD*EIT says:

        Todd, you may think his argument is negated, but a growing many of us find it more compelling. Upon a close examination of real evidence (not just the official gov’t story), and expanding the mind beyond the magnitude of its implications, you may indeed realize that those planes could not have destroyed those THREE buildings in the way they fell. Take it from an engineer. Or more than 1500. Look at ae911truth.org if you do really care about truth.

        9/11 truth isn’t conspiracy theory, though many conspiracy theories come from 9/11 truth. But the truth of the event is the first step…

  22. Brian says:

    Hey, I don’t like the TSA either. They are just another inefficient Government program that is a waste of tax payer money. Having said that, flying in a plane is not a right under the Constitution. If you do not like the process in place to screen passengers, you do not have to fly commercial. Fly charter, drive, or stay at home.

    1. John Steele says:

      You going to feel this way when the government starts doing this at malls, theaters, your car on the Interstate — all for your “protection” of course. The government have become the worst threat to American freedom that the terrorists. All the terrorists can do is kill you, the government is making you live like a subject not a citizen.

    2. joe says:

      why don boot lickers like you drive?

      violating basic human rights in order to fly is wrong, wrong wrong.

      1. Bill says:

        basic human rights? to fly without being searched? hmm..

        you’re right someone is wrong wrong wrong..

        and dont go with the claim its groping by TSA agents.. I fly every 3 out of 4 weeks and never been or seen anyone touched inappropriately

      2. Iam Wendy says:

        Well, Bill – then give me a call. I have been subjected to unwanted and inappropriate touching so much I gave up flying. I never could understand why having metal between my knee and ankle required my breasts and buttocks to be inappropriately touched.

      3. James says:

        BS …just BS! I probably fly more in a year than you do in your lifetime. I’ve never experienced this type of behavior from the TSA. If you were really violated than file a lawsuit but your just trying to exaggerate to support your ill begotten understanding of human rights.

      4. DeadMeatDad says:

        Yes Bill, basic human rights. The right not to have my ass and crotch touched by someone without my permission, or without probable cause. The right to travel interstate without having to “show your papers”.

        I fly often as well, but unfortunately I wear a below knee prosthesis. I get jacked up EVERY time I fly. I opt out of the naked scanner because I have to go through the secondary screening regardless, so I see no sense in exposing myself to unnecessary radiation.

        I especially love the new tactic of the TSA putting the biggest, ugliest and meanest looking agent in front of the metal detector in order to intimidate you into going through the naked body scanner. I walk right up to them and tell them that I am opting out.

        Additionally, now they want to X-ray (yes, X-ray) my leg from five different angles every time I pass through security. I just take it off and hand it to them and tell them to run it through the X-ray machine.

        And spare me the argument that I have the option of driving instead of flying. coast-to-coast driving is not an option, nor should it have to be considered just to avoid repeated invasive and illegal searches of my person.

        Some of us don’t have the option of leaving everything metal in our carry-ons in order to breeze through airport security Bill. And I, for one, have a problem with letting some DMV flunkie see me naked or touch my junk Bill. You go ahead and lay down and submit without a fight Bill, it appears to be in your nature. I may lack the power to change things, but I will certainly not make it easy for them to violate my BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS.

      5. Dr.McMurr says:

        Congratulations, you’re the ideal police state citizen. You’ll be receiving extra good citizen points for your positive attitude and happy cooperation.

      7. len says:

        Bill, you’re clearly lying.

      8. Tex A. Montana says:

        Well, at least Obama can count on CBS as supporting Obama and his freedom hating henchpersons (Napolitano, Holder,etc.). Perhaps you can lead us all in bowing to Mecca (or where ever the “boy king” deems appropriate)!

        then you must be blind, troll.

      11. joe says:

        bill,
        it is a basic human right to not be photographed naked.
        it is a basic human right to not have someone force their hands down you pants.
        it is a constitutional right to not be searched without probable cause.

        weak little babies like you are no safer due to these abuses and our whole society is suffering because of your apologies for tyranny.

      12. John Sheridan says:

        Bill, It is hard to believe that anyone that has the intelligence to type on a keyboard could make such a comment unless you were a propagandist for the TSA. Of course, since this is a CBS affiliate, the network of Dan Rather et al, you could just be doing the administration’s bidding. If you do not realize how this deprives everyone of their rights, you are not smart enough to be allowed to vote. Here’s a flash Bill, even a sworn on duty police officer would not be allowed to do this to you unless you were under arrest and going to jail. Even they would not be allowed to grab your balls.

      13. rufus levin says:

        still having eyesight problems, Bill??

      14. Don says:

        Are people really this stupid?

        1) Comparing TSA agents to Nazis.. COME ON. REALLY?
        2) People have a choice as to what method they want in regards to being searched. Pat down or body scan. To say, I’m afraid of radiation is ridiculous. Do you have a cell phone? Willing to bet they put out the same amount of dangerous radiation. NONE.
        3) You don’t have a RIGHT to fly. To want to fly means agreeing to being searched by the methods in place. Don’t like it? Drive.

      15. Bob says:

        Oh well, I guess it doesn’t exist then. So by that logic, I guess mass starvation doesn’t exist, either, or the molestation of a child. Doesn’t exist, simply because by your “logic”, since it doesn’t directly affect you, it must not be real.

        Get a clue.

      16. DeputyMarshal says:

        Perhaps WIlliam, you are too repulsive to be touched Sir! However, don’t give up. Hope springs eternal… PS a bath or shower might improve your chances. Good Luck, friend!

      17. Me Me Me Me Me says:

        So since “YOU” have not seen it, and not experienced it, everyone else is lying and making it up????? Putz.

      18. Mike says:

        What is “appropriate” for you may differ than someone else’s view.

      19. arthur mann says:

        A lot of people have Bill, so what is next, ? maybe special papers to go back and forth to work.

      20. robertsgt40 says:

        “…allegedly sexually assaulted a Transportation Security Administration agent in Phoenix. Bill is another lemming headed for the cliff. Every time a TSA agent touches someone, it’s an assault. But then the 4th Ammendment is gone like many others. No matter the screening devices have already caused cancers in TSA screeners. Some people enjoy being herded. I stopped flying 5yrs ago. Wake up folks. Your country has been taken from you.

      21. erik says:

        For the sake of argument, we will say TSA groping/genital touching does not exist.

        What part of unalienable do you not understand? Flying is not a right, the 4th amendment is a right!

        I can’t understand why people defend unwarranted searches. You are far more likely to kill yourself than be murdered, let alone die in a terror attack.

        Don’t let fear change your definition of freedom.

      22. James says:

        I’m a person with rational thought and logic where you’re incapable of neither. There is no human rights violation occurring with these searches. They are more than reasonable since it is required for the safely of all flying on the plan. I’ll be damned to give the advantage to a terrorist to board a flight with a bomb or to allow them to mutilate innocent people just so you’re stupid notion of human rights is maintained.

    3. Aeternalis says:

      That’s correct. Flying in a plane isn’t a right under the Constitution.

      However, protection from unreasonable search and seizure is. Check out the Fourth Amendment sometime.

      1. infowars.com says:

        You have the right to move freely around the country. Planes didn’t exist back then and moving freely has changed a bit since then but the INTENT of movely around freely without showing papers without being searched still exists. And yes it is covered by the consitution. Don’t kid yourself or beleive the main stream media. As the Rupert murdoch scandel now shows they are not to be trusted. The government is bought and paid for by corporations, cia, etc.. that is called fasicm or corporatism. It is not called freedom. It is tyranny. Infowars.com if you can handle the truth.

      2. Ralph E Berkeypile Jr says:

        Amen

      3. kirsti says:

        the keyeword here is “Unreasonable”… check out what happened on 9-11. Security isn’t perfect, but TSA is working to make it better everyday. Right now, this is the most accurate way to ensure the safety of people like you and me.

      4. robertsgt40 says:

        Aeternalis–finally, someone thinking clearly. Our rights guaranteed(not established) are systematically being eradicated. Our rights aren’t established by the Constitution. Our rights are God given. Which means they are not freely taken by the govt without due process. We no longer live under the rule of law, but under the rule of men. Big difference.

    4. Jennifer says:

      Driving isn’t a right either; the government can regulate it, just as the government can regulate flying. However, just because it can be regulated does not mean the government can take away your constitutional right preventing unreasonable search and seizure. A police officer must have justifiable cause for putting his hands on your person. At an airport you are guilty until you prove yourself innocent by submitting to an unreasonable search. Demanding to see someone naked and giving pat downs that would normally require justifiable cause is the definition of unreasonable. If you don’t agree, then I guess you won’t mind getting a body search the next time you get in your car, ride a bus, or hop on a train.

      1. James says:

        I’m sorry but did September 11, 2001 escape you memory?

        When I drive my car I can make the decision about who is in the car with me. I can’t make that decision when I’m on a plane full of strangers. We are all suspected terrorists when boarding a plane. It must be that way for safety. My and others livelihood supersedes you obscure view of constitutional rights. The constitution wasn’t around when plays were being flown for commercial travelers. One of the most powerful aspects of our constitution is its ability to change. So if we need an amendment to put a stop to your foolish concerns about human rights then let it happen. Comply or just don’t fly and let the travelers fly with the right to fly safely.

      2. Buckster says:

        Completely spoken like a true communist. You and your mentality are the wave of the liberal future! I applaud your brazen attitude to stand up to all the neanderthal knuckle-dragging rednecks who believe the UNIVERSAL unalienable rights as defined in the Declaration of Independence and the spirit upon which this free country was founded. The future is yours! Take your place in the annals of history alongside mao, stalin, hitler, castro, bush, obama, and all others who have robbed liberty in the name of “security”. I can’t wait to lick your boots.

      3. James says:

        This is too funny to even have a rational response. An airport is not your car or your home. I’m actually a fiscal republican but support the need for means to prevent terrorist from having an advantage on innocent people. You however actually support the actions of terrorism through your bloated misunderstanding of constitution rights. As for the Declaration of Independence: It has NOTHING to do with human rights. The Declaration of Independence was about separation and relinquish of power from England over the US you fool! Are you suggestion we need to declare our independence from rational thought? If so then I guess you made your point.

      4. rufus levin says:

        you might want to turn to the Constitution and Bill of Rights for the correct information concerning our freedom and liberty. You are correct about the declaration, except that it establishes the nation as created by WE THE PEOPLE, not by We the Government.

      5. kirsti says:

        you sir, have a twisted view of reality. How do you plan to protect the thousands of people who fly on a daily basis? What is your alternative solution. So far all i have seen from your lot is complaining and whining and comparisons of the TSA to nazi germany… which I shouldn’t even need to point out are COMPLETELY rediculous and off the wall… but not once have i seen a viable solution…nay, any solution for that matter from you people. You live in a fantasy if you think we can do nothing and keep our citizens protected at the same time. Yes because that is what they are doing – they are protecting YOU. If you don’t want it, drive or take a train. But TSA can’t risk the safety of the other thousands of people just because you have a stick up your ass.

      6. Ralph E Berkeypile Jr says:

        Kirstie, what a miserable slave you are. You actually believe that you’ll be safer if the government responsible for carrying out 911 fondles your genitalia? No, Kirstie. What will make us more secure is to bring to justice those in the US government who are responsible for the terrorism.

      7. Jame says:

        No you are the slave to illogical thought! No one ever thought a plane could be taken under control by a handful of utility cutters.

        The best means to insure safety for all traveling is to provide no exceptions to anyone. All I need to read or experience is some 80 year old right wing Christian women extremist having a bomb in her depends and managing to destroy the lives of many innocent people. The cost of such a scenario while unlikely is too huge to endure. It would not only crush the airline industry it would crush the economy. You just don’t understand the cost of another successful attack on airplane. The companies can’t afford and the country can’t afford it to happen again.

        So get over the pat downs or don’t fly.

      8. Buckster says:

        First off James, if you’re so scared of terrorists, then exercise your right to drive YOUR car and leave those of us in liberty to take the risks that come along with life and flying. We’ll handle grandma and the exploding depends without your intervention.
        Second, terrorists can blow up anything they want given the chance. A plane today, a shopping mall tomorrow, a trainstation next week, a bus stop with crowded people, a sporting event…whatever!!! You want the TSA at EVERY possible event all the time?
        How about the government mandates the sexual molestation of EVERYONE, every 15 minutes, all day long in ALL public places so that we lessen the likelihood of a terrorist bomb and stay consistent with your logic. Will that suit you?
        I just hope you and Kirsti talk your bosses into wearing flavorful boots so we don’t have to taste tar and gravel military boots soles for the rest of eternity. Do us at least that favor.
        …and it is the Declaration that talks about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness you moronic communist. A “fool” like me got it the first time I read it. Idiot.

      9. James says:

        Hey Huckster, there will always be limitations to the searches. In a plane you have no means for escape when a terrorist attack takes place …just like a train. Public institutions like malls are certainly difficult to insure safety and I honestly don’t have a sure answer as to how you insure safety in those public institutions. I’ll leave that up to the experts. However, I can throw a mall into a building like I can fly a plane into one.

        There is no molestation going on with the searches. It’s some twisted and distorted view that you need to manage personally. I’m not sure what in your past makes you feel you are being molested with a pat down. It seems to be a more personal issue than a social issue. But hey! While we are at it, do you want to prevent searches of prisoners being searched by correctional officers as well? Hell, since they are not proven to have commit a crime while incarcerated then how can we allow searches on these prisoners.

      10. Buckster says:

        Hames,

        You’re all over the place on this. Get a clue. Stick to the fundamentals of what work for freedom, not totalitarianism…unless you are against freedom which you are. You’ve spoken like a true commie, and thats that. You need not attempt to justify you’re position any longer. Sense will not rule this day with you.

        Freedom will prevail in the end. The just will rise up against tyranny and overthrow it. Its history. We can argue about it all day, but history won’t change. Have fun with your ‘social’ dates at the security checkpoints. Obviously you enjoy the touching so there ya go!

      11. Michelle says:

        What James doesn’t understand is that the government and it’s TSA minions are already destroying the airline industry. Just wait a few years and no one will be flying thanks to James unAmerican government.

      12. rufus levin says:

        James, you are living proof that Americans like YOU allowed the terrorists to WIN…willing to give up freedom RIGHTS in AMERICA because you are AFRAID.
        You disgust me.

      13. James says:

        You amuse me since you have no idea the advantage you give terrorists with you so called human rights violations and the fact your human rights are NOT violated with the searches makes it even more amusing.

        I hope I disgust you enough so that you stop flying.

      14. Tim says:

        Where can I sign up for frequent, intrusive, searches?

    5. Hairy Herry says:

      It’s called House Bill (I think 1300? It does have two zeros to end and is in the lower thousand number group) An annoying Texas congresswoman has already introduced such a bill to INCLUDE BUSES AND TRAINS with this. Face it Brian, the Borg is doing it’s dangest to infiltrate us and our children, so your argument is now dated. This is simply unacceptable. If you didn’t know what I just said – you’re being made aware of it NOW. To the rest of you, let’s make certain this bill doesn’t leave committee. The budget deal bill could well become an insidious way to sneak in this sort of nonsense as was the business-killer 1099 form nonsense in last year’s ObamaCare (thank God that portion was killed off at least)

    6. Marc. says:

      Actually Brian, I would argue that, as a Citizen of the US or as a legal resident I have the self evident right to travel, peacefully anywhere within my country by any means I see fit. The 4th amendment secures this right by making all searches unreasonable except for probable cause accompanied by a warrant, supported by oath or affirmation and specifically stating the places and/or persons to be search and items to be seized. At this point I don’t know of any constitutional amendments that have created any exception to this guarantee.

      Are sure you want to abandon the 4th amendment so easily? After all, the TSA already claims the right to use any procedures it deems fit for access to aircraft, hotels, buses, stadiums, public buildings, high school proms.

      Will you less accommodating if you are required to be scanned/search before given permission to access a freeway, after all I have heard that driving is a privilege as well…

    7. NotFittheProfile says:

      Another Ignorant American. Why don’t you educate yourself? Your constitution does not limit the rights you have. It limits what the government can do. Powers not granted to the federal government nor prohibited to the states by the Constitution are reserved, respectively, to the states or the people.

      Where in the constitution does it authorize unreasonable searches without cause?
      Where in the constitution does it authorize the government to limit the freedom to move? Servs in Europe were not allowed to travel by the Aristocracy, can you point which of the founders consider himself or herself the property of King George?

  25. Chicago Nick says:

    I’ve said this time and time again, that if my employer required me to do these things I’d sue THEM and quit, it’s that simple. And to you who say “that’s easy to say” well take this: I was an 911 dispatcher part time overnights for 8 years until last April, when I quit because I refused to service people who couldn’t speak English and that’s that.

    They tried moving me and I refused and quit and told them to take that shiite and shove it.

    My response to them was “I’m not there to help people who don’t belong here and if they can’t speak English and are living in Chicago they’re illegal aliens since to be a citizen one must have command of the English language” And not being a minority PC boo hoo “sue sue sue” American I walked.

    SO I put my money where my mouth is and expect others to do the same. I wouldn’t hassle American citizens for a paycheck if my freaking life depended on it. Period.

    1. Richard Halavais says:

      Chicago Nick, if more so called Americans were like you we’d have balanced budgets, less crime, lower taxes and a much more civilized society, oh and no Obama and his minions to have to undo.

If you ever run for public office let me know, I”m in California but you’ll get a donation from me.

    When the TSA fondles your privates it is called “security and safety for our own good” but when the same thing is done to a TSA rent-a-thug its abuse and sexual harrasment? Anybody see the blatant hypocrisy and of the perverts and bullies at TSA or is it just me?

    1. T*ts & A*s says:

      Right. Fundamental “Law” that does not apply equally is not “Law” but tyranny. We seem to have forgotten that beginning with the First Fascist, Dishonest Abe.

It used to be said “This county has its problems but where else would you want be?”. Pretty soon the answer may no longer be the USA. Progressives have been around for years, the more they have their way…..the less you as an individual truely have…Free Speech—Gone, Property rights-gone. Right to be secure in your own person, dwelling -Gone. Habeus Corpus-Gone. The Right to Life, Liberty,& pursuit of happiness–gone. “Those who would give up Essential Liberty
    to purchase a little Temporary Safety,
    deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” Jeffeson & Franklin……When the monthly SSI Check buys only a loaf of bread & The government can violate our women and children, I fear violent revolution is near…much worse than whats going on in other countries. Always look at the big picture and your place in it…A wise man learns from his mistakes. A wiser man learns from the mistakes of others.

    1. John Sheridan says:

      Unfortunately, you and millions of your fellow Americans still don’t realize is that this two party system is a facade for the complete control of this government by the Globalist Banking Elite. When they call, congressional leadership and the President jump. Each party gains more tyrannical control slowly, according to their own ideology. Each administration closes in on ultimate control, often using ’emergencies’, whether real, imagined or self-initiated, as excuses to separate us from their liberties one at a time. It does not help to have most of the citizens so uneducated in history, government and the Constitution so as to not realize that the Constitution is there to PROTECT us from government, not to permit government to do thins to(or even for) us.

    Will you fools who can’t handle a full body scan or pat down stop going to airports? Take a bus, or drive a car, or just stay home. I travel 70% of the time out of the year and have never experienced or seen abuse from the TSA. They just want to do their jobs and earn a wage like everyone else. People with issues with search need to get over themselves since no one is enjoying the pat downs on your bodies.

    The women charge should be fined heavily for her immature actions.

      They’re gearing up to work at bus and train stations, James. Get over myself? You mean lay down and take it, asking for more, as you do. I wonder how you’d feel if if Bush installed the scanners and pat downs… Nevermind. I know the answer to that. I know you sold your soul long ago. If you hadn’t you wouldn’t tell those with self respect that they deserve none. What about dogs? Is the fascist way the only way? Maybe for you. Not for me.

      Did you scream over the PATRIOT Act? I did. Did you then lay down and take it as the democrats expanded and renewed it & then ran with it after crying of its abuses for years? Get over myself? It’s not about enjoyment, it’s about legality.

      1. James says:

        Good it needs to be done at buses and train stations as well. I mean comply for the safety of all and get off you so called human rights violations. You don’t understand that human rights includes the right to be safe when you board a plane, or train, or bus. These are all public access transportations so they are all vulnerable to a terrorist attacks. Eliminate the avenues for terrorists is what I support but you prefer to empower terrorists which is foolish.

      2. Stephanie says:

        Wow. We have legal basic rights granted to us by the BOR. Because of “terrorists”, you want to give the government ANY power (even if it makes no sense) in order to make you FEEL safer… Got it.

        So TSA pulling aside old ladies and children and pawing them make you feel safer. Awesome. Keep chasing that unicorn through Lollipop field. Must be fun in your world.

    By squeezing the breasts of japanese flyers, we can finally put an end to their blowing up planes with their breasts. Do we have any camps we can send her to until her breasts are declared safe for air travel? If someone squeezes a breast and it explodes, that will still kill people, won’t it? I think from now on, I will only date women that have been breast tested by the TSA. Is there a safe breast list out there? If not, then how about a procedure to squeeze breasts in public before you date a woman?

    Let’s say I find a woman I want to date, and she’s interested in me, but I’m afraid her breasts will explode. Do I have to put her on a flight to have her breasts checked, or can I have her check in at the airport, get breatst tested, but not fly so I can save the cost of a flight?

    It’s easy for a TSA agent to administer the processes ordained by the National Government…but not easy for the tables to be turned. This TSA woman discovered what others have experienced since this ridiculous rule was passed. As far as the TSA is concerned, it is another example of the blind leading the blind (sorry to those with sight impairments) or yet better put…idiots leading idiots…and it starts at the top!

  72. John says:

    Of course, it would be nice to see a woman naked too before I date her, but she probably won’t allow it. How about a package deal from the TSA. How about $50 and I drop off a woman I want to date, they check that her breasts won’t explode, and print out a checklist of how hot she is naked. I think with that I should be able to safely date her that day.

  73. Brad says:

    Because of TSA, I only fly when there is no alternative. I don’t know what I would do if groped, but at least I would protest and have my wife video it for a future lawsuit.

    So I guess any time the government comes in and hijacks free enterprise industries through totalitarian and police actions, that we have to exit that free market due to their actions…or that is a reflection of our bad judgement? What a central planning communistic idea! Maybe you should run for elective office, and by the time elections are also done away with under martial law and our leaders are “appointed”, you’ll be in a position to help completely destroy liberty and free enterprise.

  80. Drew703 says:

    Comparing the TSA to the Nazi’s and even throwing the Nurhemburg Trials out to sensationalize the problem is not only foolish, but it’s reckless and diminishes your argument. The same is true about painting the screeners with the brush of pedophiles and perverts. You honestly think these employees making $10 bucks an hour are there to feel you up and see you naked?? Really think about it and tell me if you’d like to feel up your high school lunch lady. You want to make the radiation argument about the AIT machines, fine, there might be some actual concern there, but as for seeing you naked, get over yourselves. There’s a thing called the internet, and last time I checked, there’s some nudity readily available.
    The current measures are not satisfactory to anyone…inside or outside the TSA, hence the constant changes to procedures. The reality is that TSA is still in its infancy as an agency. It’s been around for 9 years and if you look at the first 9 years of ANY government agency, I’m quite certain you’ll find gaping holes and huge mistakes. This is not to excuse the current “enhanced pat downs” and the unprofessional contact of the 1 or 2 screeners around the country that results in infowars.com calling for the entire agency’s head on a platter. I’m just pointing out that the vast majority of these people are doing a job, that, at its core, is trying to keep you safe while you fly. These are not soldiers at Auschwitz ushering you to your deaths. These are not guys that are going to end up on Dateline with a bag of condoms and vodka looking to jump in a hot tub with a 11 year old. These are Americans doing a job. Period. Again, I agree, CHANGE IS NEEDED in the entire screening process, but wouldn’t all this energy that is being used to highlight the obvious problems and demonize the screeners and the agency be better used in coming up with solutions that focus on constitutional freedoms while ensuring safety as well?

  81. truthinMotion says:

    Completely spoken like a true communist. You and your mentality are the wave of the liberal future! I applaud your brazen attitude to stand up to all the neanderthal knuckle-dragging rednecks who believe the UNIVERSAL unalienable rights as defined in the Declaration of Independence and the spirit upon which this free country was founded. The future is yours! Take your place in the annals of history alongside mao, stalin, hitler, castro, bush, obama, and all others who have robbed liberty in the name of “security”. I can’t wait to lick your boots.

    1. Drew703 says:

      Wow. You throw that “communist” word out there as your buzz word to make your point and then put Hitler in the group of examples??? You might want to check your high school history books before you lump Hitler in as a “communist”. This is just another reason it’s hard to take people like you and infowars seriously at all. You throw out the words like communist and facist like they’re interchangeable. You actually compare the screeners to Nazi death camp guards and then blindly hurl insults at anyone who opposes you. You all would rather just try to one up each other with more explosive references comparing your fellow Americans as Nazis and pedophiles then actually look at the problem in front of you. Instead of going for the same tired, cheap insult, why don’t you all ever try to work out a solution?

  82. James says:

    I’m a person with rational thought and logic where these so called human rights experts are incapable of neither. There is no human rights violation occurring with these searches. They are more than reasonable since it is required for the safely of all flying on the plan. I’ll be damned to give the advantage to a terrorist to board a flight with a bomb or to allow them to mutilate innocent people just so you’re stupid notion of human rights is maintained.

      JAMES … MORON … THE TERRORISTS HAVE SAM PORTABLES. 9/11 Hijackers STRONG-ARMED THE PLANES. THEY MADE IT THROUGH SCREENING WITHOUT A PROBLEM, because THEY packed “nothing that could be construed as a weapon.” They could do it AGAIN …easily.

      It is considered: sexual abuse/ harassment to put your hand on the clothed “private parts” of an individual. It is Illegal, TRY IT, MORON! DO IT TO A CHILD AND IT’S A DOUBLE PENALTY.

      Why are you so afraid? I bet you still sleep with the light on?

      The government has no legal right or authority to claim probable-cause in mass, and without such, the constitution forbids search and seizure. Probable cuase constitutes the perpetrator caught in a criminal act, which is how COPS can Search Your Vehicle if you run a light -and they smell POT- after pulling you over for the light misdomenor. Misdemeanor offenses constitute probable cause, “without” a COP cannot SHAKE YOU DOWN (or search you) WITHOUT A WARRANT!

      TSA IS NOT EVEN LAW ENFORCEMENT!! Government has no right interfering or regulating affairs of private businesses. Airlines are Corporate Businesses, independent from government, and therefore, no such government interference is even justified.

      FEAR is not a Reason to Allow Insanity. Perhaps, the people who are so afraid need to see their doctor for a good anti-anxiety/anti-psychotic medicinal regimen. NO 9/11 type events have taken place since 9/11 … WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE!!!

  83. John says:

    I don’t know what I’d do if a woman’s breast exploded while on a date. It’s not like you can call a tow truck. It would be very awkward, I wouldn’t know what to say. It is hard to stare at potatoes for very long when stuff like that happens and she would start to notice that I didn’t know how to repair a flat breast.

    Thank goodness that the DA excercised some common sense in this case. Common sense is something we have no seen in a long time from our government and especially Homeland Security and the TSA. I think they should let her off completely but a misdemeanor and a fine is a lot better than what she was facing. I think the worst TSA agents should be given a taste of their own medicine by citizens waiting for them in the parking lot. Wait for them to get off work and let a group of 4 -6 fed up citizens search them for confiscated items that were to be turned in instead of taken home and sold. If this was done on a random basis maybe these agents would dial it back a notch.

    Jesus f***ing christ people! Do you see the words coming out of your fingertips??? You are comparing TSA to NAZIS!!! REALLY!?! Come on!!! Apparently most of you have indeed forgotten about 9-11… you know, when terrorists slammed airplanes into our world trade towers and killed american citizens. Yeah, i guess that is easy to forget when you have something as important as a TSA agent assaulting some lady by having her tits squeezed… by the lady?? wait…. Morons.

    1. Joe says:

      Yeah, guys. The Nazis only asked “Papers please”. lets be fair.

    2. James says:

      Well stated Kirsti

  88. Kenny West says:

    Did the TSA agent get charged for grabbing and twisting Ms Miyamae’s breasts? Same crime, right? If it’s okay for one of us to do it, it should be okay for all of us to do it under that old, fashioned, outdated, funny old Constitution, created by all those dead white guys, right?

    1. James says:

      Hey Kenny you have it right about the women. However, those old guys also designed the constitution to be an instrument of change which is its most powerful attribute. Most here fail to understand that. The constitution was written before planes flew in the sky yet the foolish ones here think it covers the right for commercial flight. Many here are only empowering terrorist with their ill thought understanding of the constitution.

It is just gives morons a false sense of well being. SHEEP love turning over their rights to feel all safe with nanny government. Disgusting.

  91. BobLiberty says:

    Yeah right. Like a 5 ft. asian woman has ever been a Terrorist. The TSA Obamanazi’s are out of control. It’s getting serious. Obama is directly responsible. He appointed the worst Homeland Security Chief of all time. Nappy Janet.

  92. joe says:

    this woman should run for congress

  93. Ralph E Berkeypile Jr says:

    The TSA can’t file crimional charges, or they would give legal ammunition to everyone who wants to file criminal charges against the TSA for sexually attacking them. To charge someone for doing exactly what the TSA is doing to everybody would be a legal admission that such acts are criminal. The TSA would be cutting its own throat.

  94. MB-Venice says:

    I travel on occasion. When I can, I drive. When I have to fly, i get there early to deal with all the inconveniences. But I’m not sure I’d want to be waived through because some people get all up in arms about being put through security. The reason it is such a pain is that some bad people thought “hey, I’ll bring some box cutters on a plane and crash them into buildings.” So now we need to prevent that from happening. And we can’t just check 30-year-old brown men. The bad guys are smarter than that. They’ll get things through with old ladies and little girls.
    I just don’t see what the solution to this is. Other than avoiding air travel. I have to get on a plane tonight. I’m not thrilled about it. I’ll get there early and deal with the indignities that everyone around me will also have to deal with. Thanks, Al Queda.

  97. jury nullification even if she was charged there is no way you can find a full jury of people who dont hate the tsa so bad that even if this woman sodomized the agent would find her guilty, hell i would give her a standing O when she entered the court room and shout HERO!

  98. Drew703 says:

    Comparing her to Rosa Parks? Comparing the screeners and the TSA to Nazi’s perverts, and pedophiles? Brilliant. Except the minor detail of the screeners not escorting people to their deaths and where Rosa not giving the white bus driver a nipple twist… If you really want change, (and I agree change is needed) then focus on the solution. Demonizing these screeners is tired and an act of a true lemming that you claim everyone that doesn’t want to burn TSA to the ground to be. Making her into a folk hero for dealing with the situation like a 4 year old is just another example of so many people’s and certain website’s need to sensationalize the injustices rather than have a rational discussion about the solution.

Given your name, I guess that’s the type of paranoid response we should expect… Lacking coherence and no semblance of an argument.

  99. Robert DeBeaux says:

    The blame to the TSA agents is only partial, just like the BROWN shirt youth of Hitler’s army, they carried out the orders regardless of the validity or moral consequences. Here the TSA is doing the same.
    They KNOW it is wrong but are convinced they are doing the right thing.
    Should any case actually go to a grand jury, much less a trial, a process called JURY NULLIFICATION will take place. Have you noticed that only charges have been filed? No actual indictments? This is because the pat downs are unconstitutional and clearly violate the 4th amendment. keeping it out of the courtroom permits the brown shirt equivalent to keep the People in terror and in line.
    Stand up for your Rights

  100. Jack says:

    This is not surprising the Feds backed down.
    Suppose YOU were on the jury hearing this case; and now suppose you are a frequent traveler. Further, think the Feds really want to open up airport security to all kinds of scrutiny? Best just to let it go.

  101. pat says:

    Same thing happened to my wife. She made a comment about TSA procedures. I was behind her and saw a woman smile, signal another, then walk over to a third. They instantly surrounded her and hassled her for minutes on end. Her offense was asking not to go through the naked picture machine.

  102. GozieBoy says:

    I am from England. My wife and I always took our skiing holidays in the US. Following a distressing experience at LA with your Immigration when visiting friends we decided never to return to the US. There are thousands more like us in the UK who have given up having holidays in what was our favourite destination.
    I can tell you that if authorities here tried to copy what you are experiencing at your airports there would be a public outcry and it would be swiftly overturned. It is sexual harrassment by any other name.

  106. Don says:

    James, right on.

    These people need to figure out that a pat down is not molestation. HOWEVER, grabbing a person’s breast and twisting it is.

    Besides, if you don’t like a pat down, go through the body scanner. I don’t understand how seeing an image with no body parts showing is a problem.

    1. Ringo says:

      mo·lest [muh-lest]

      –verb (used with object)
      1. to bother, interfere with, or annoy.

      2. to make indecent sexual advances to.

      3. to assault sexually.

      According to the 1st definition TSA searchers are molestation.

      1. Drew703 says:

        By that logic, so are mosquitos, traffic signals and most internet radio hosts…

      2. James says:

        Man Drew703 response that I have nothing to add but see Drew703’s response to that poor definition of molestation.

        Okay maybe I do: To keep in context of this discussion on molestation, it needs to have a sexual premise. You have to prove the person searching you was doing it for some sexual satisfaction. Seriously! When you have a line of about 100 people behind you to get through security, the last thing a TSA person is thinking about is satisfying some sexual need.

  107. Loretta says:

    This woman is my new hero. Good for her1 I hope she sues the TSA and makes their inappropriate molestations huge news. Enough with the gestapo-like tactics. Enough of the fear mongering. Enough of the invasion to our privacy. Enough of the sexual harassment. The government/TSA has violated us on every level and it is time to stand up and say enough. I applaud this woman. Congratulations.

  108. Jmac5280 says:

    For those demanding that they be molested for their own security remember, it is better to die a free man, than to live as either a coward or a slave. If anybody deserves to be charged with a felony it is theTSA agent.

  109. Tim says:

    When you are subject to such a search, start moaning wildly every time they touch you. Shake, fall to the ground, and ask for more.

    If that happens a few times, the searches will cease.

  110. Buckster says:

    Well, thinking this through all the way, if a “prisoner” is detained, even though he may not have been “convicted”, if the system is working correctly, he was arrested for PROBABLE CAUSE!….unlike ME boarding a plane. C’mon, think these things through before you fire them out.

    1. James says:

      You can’t comprise you stance here! Just because one was charged of a crime that put them in jail doesn’t make them liable for subsequent searches without evidence they have committed another crime. If you go by the literal tem that you proclaim is accurate on “reasonable search” then the criminal can apply the same right that you are applying at airports.

      It seems to me you only want the so called human or constitutional right to apply to you when it is convenient and not based on its true meaning.

  111. James says:

    It’s not totalitarianism to requests a pat down before boarding a plan. Have you read the definition of what totalitarianism is?

    I support a financial capitalism so does that also make me a commie. What a redneck backwoods ideologue you are.

    I’m against facilitating terrorism with silly thoughts of human rights over a pat down. Think of it this way, terrorist support you idea of prevent searches at airports. It’s exactly what they want. Also, you approach does support a prisoners position of unreasonable search so you seem to be on the wrong side to me. It’s really that simple.

    Enjoy the pat downs at Airports since while you wine you still have to go through one if you are requested to. So in the end you already lost this argument before it even started. Those searches will be there long after you stop declaring you so called human and constitutional rights.

  112. Eyeball says:

    The government probably dropped the charges because they figured she would make a good TSA supervisor instead. You can always use a good agressive titi twister on the patdown line.

    ANY candidate that promises to prosecute the TSA and their bosses if elected will get my vote, Doesn’t matter if they are white, black, purple, smell bad, no teeth; I will support them.

  114. john lennon says:

    Come together … riiiiight now…. over Miyamae

  115. Ty Young says:

    James – in a perfect world, you might have a point. To state that there is NO instances of molestation is uninformed. You might not have seen any happening, but that doesn’t mean that somewhere, at sometime, it hasn’t happened… and there are plenty of reports from people who felt they were assaulted and demeaned. Most TSA agents are conscientious, however, there have been too many reports of lawless behavior from their ranks to categorically rule all of these pat downs as proper. Obviously in the case of Ms. Miyamae (sp?), she had reached a point of frustration after numerous “pat downs” where she felt assaulted. It could have been a single TSA employee in the past who was overly aggressive.

    But the bottom line… and one of the reasons I am sure the case was dropped is that the government would have been required to produce results to show that the pat downs accomplished actual security goals. This probably cannot be quantified or verified and they would then have nothing to base their position on.

    As to snickering about planes not being invented at the time of our forefathers – that argument is facetious at best. There WERE means of mass transportation in their day and posed the same types of risk. Further, while the Constitution may have the need to be amended, until the Bill of Rights is changed, it is the foundation of our laws and your comments about adaptation are irrelevant.

    Now terrorists are talking about implanting bombs where they cannot be detected… so what is the point of fondling a child? Technology will always outstrip the means for identifying the threat. But here is a problem with our society… they are so risk adverse and want guarantees about everything to the point of immobility that they empower a quasi police force (TSA). The news is replete with excesses, theft – both petty and grand larceny – and recently Honolulu had 26 agents fired for not doing their jobs (not monitoring carry ons). 26 in one location… and while the flights are domestic, they have many, many foreign travelers. Still think you are safer?

    I also fly regularly… usually two flights a week… and have had only minimal problems with TSA. Most of that is that I see no reason to make a scene and comply with their suggestions regarding how to get through with the least amount of hassles. But I know the type of individuals that are employed there and far too many of them remind me of the cops in Clockwork Orange when he gets out of prison…

    Kristi –
    Most of the people who commented were not referring to TSA agents as “nazis” – they were stating that the excuse “I was only following orders” is a defense that has been proven to have no weight. If you had a young daughter come over to my house and I put my hand on her genitals you would be justifiably alarmed and probably take immediate action. So, why the complacency with regard to a government lackey doing the same thing?

    1. James says:

      Ty,

      Thank you for a well thought out argument. The issue I have is that there is no real evidence of TSA sexual assaults during pat downs. These are merely accusations and cannot be considered fact. Just because there have been a dozen or so complaints doesn’t make those complaints accurate. I can’t go by facts since there is no evidence of wrongdoing by the TSA. One possibility that we are dealing with is an overly sensitive society with pat downs because they have never been subjected to one in the past. They are probably decent law abiding citizens that has lead to accusations that while, in their minds is real, are actually just corporate procedure followed by workers required to follow those procedures.

      I think the issue here is more subjective and not objective among many complaining here. These people want to believe that the TSA is doing something wrong because they lack serious trust in government and corporations. However, none have actually witnessed any occurrence of wrong doing.

      more to come on responses

      1. Ty Young says:

        James,

        Given the nature of human beings (and TSA agents are human which might surprise some here) I would have to come down on the side saying that at least some of these reports/accusations have validity. Painting all TSA agents the same is obviously unfair, however, it is also turnabout as fair play. Because of the possibility that one person with evil intent may board the plane has justified the searches that we are speaking about. What is on many people’s minds in these columns is that – while it may be a one in a million chance that an agent is getting their jollies fondling children – there is the possibility. And with our society being so paranoid about “sex offenses” they are arguing to avoid that slim chance…. just as TSA argues the odds of a terrorist threat.

        I have gone through the scanners several times (heck, most evenings I am on the town begging for someone to want to see me naked) and don’t give a hoot one way or the other about the radiation… you make a valid point that cellphones and microwaves are likely just as bad – however, how many times over the last couple of decades did someone “suddenly” discover that this item or that was far more harmful than advertised? The problem is that we really never know and many feel that while exposure to any of them periodically is likely okay, but adding one more item to contribute to an unhealthy buildup takes them closer to the straw that breaks the camels back.

        BTW… talk to many of the people on the sex offender lists about there being no proof… just a he said/she said accusation and you will find that the lack of proof doesn’t really have bearing in these types of situations. Unfortunately, things types of events are subjective… the pat down you receive may not make you feel uncomfortable, but the proximity of another (same sex) person’s hand near my genitals is offensive to me for who knows what reason. Same agent, same event, different impressions.

        Lastly, as others have opined, there is no proof that any of the methods and their inconvenience to millions of travelers has made flying any safer. Failures in their methodologies have missed potential threats (see numerous reports of weapons in carry-on luggage not detected). Since safety seems to be a side issue all too often, then for what purpose beyond control of a population is going through perpetuating these exercises?

      2. ivanthedestroyer77 says:

        James … You are a traitor and a disgrace to the human race. Thank God for the internet because if I ever heard a fool like YOU …BOOOOOM, COMRADE!

    2. James says:

      Regarding mass transportation Ty I completely disagree with you. Just because there was mass transportation, society back then never had to witness the power a simple bomb can occur on someone in a train or what a train could do if crashed into a countries’ major economic hub. It never occurred in those times. While you had train robbers, you never had terrorist hi-jacking trains for idealogical reasons and for the purpose of creating server harm to others.

      Give me evidence or a specific amendment that actually proves that rights are being violated by these searches. And please don’t you the reasonable search argument since that argument was provided for the very reason we have searches at Airports. It can be deemed reasonable to search someone boarding a plan since it suits the need to ensure safety for all boarding that plan. The idea of reasonable search comes with a great amount of interpretation that can be argued on both sides.

      1. Ty Young says:

        Actually, trains were not in existence at that time either. Probably the most notable means of mass transportation would have been sailing ships. Piracy (terrorists) was commonplace… so there was a platform for though in this area. Why do you think the Marine Corp was formed by Thomas Jefferson (Barbary Pirates).

        While I disagree with you regarding 4th amendment violations, a recent Cincinnati court ruled along the lines of your argument. They did find the TSA wrong on a procedural issue, but stated that at this juncture it is too late to turn back. The ruling will be appealed of course.

        Playing devil’s advocate though… why does a terrorist have to get on the plane? Just go into the airport and get themselves dead center among the several hundred people in the TSA line and then set off their bombs? Probably get just as many people killed and injured as getting on the plane. This is one of the weaknesses I see in the way TSA congregates everyone into a small area making it vulnerable to a mass attack by some lunatic (who they will paint as a right wing nut job intent on trying to harm the gov’t – guess we need more controls!!).

    3. James says:

      Ty,

      While I make this argument; I do so with heeded concern, the fact that there have been no terrorists attacks on a plane since the security policies have been put in place is evidence it has made flying safer. I only hope it continues for the sake of everyone.

      I’ll continue to argue where others say their human rights are being violated by these pat downs, my human rights for safety for all boarding on a plane has been made increased due to these policies. It’s not about courage or some misunderstanding of rights taken away as much as it has been that it is far for difficult for a terrorist to hi-jack a plan since these procedures have been put in place. I’ll concede some of my rights of privacy for the sake of everyone being able to board and land on a plane safely.

      The best argument I have is that many terrorists side with these “so called” human rights of search or scans since it better enables for them to destroy lives, rights, and countries without these procedures.

    4. James says:

      The first railroad was built in 1764 in New York but I’ll concede you are correct that it should not be considered mass transit. Overall, there is no assurance of complete safety from terrorists. The best we can do is marginalize the destruction they can create.

      As for the 14th amendment I do not think it is violated by the TSA pat downs. Actually the I can argue the equal protection clause in the 14th amendment supports the TSA pat downs and searches.

      1. CKCM says:

        James, the 14th (XIV) Amendment was dated 1866 and deals with the definition of citizenship and other matters. Nothing to do with freedoms from unwarranted search or seizure. The 4th (IV) Amendment, however, prohibits searches without specific probable cause or without specific warrant.. You are picking out words and phrases from the Amendments which sound good but have no bearing on the question.

    NEWS FLASH!

    Security is a myth. Of which only the most ignorant would buy into hook, line and sinker. From the day we’re born we’re at risk. Be it disease, violence or even our own ignorance, we’re all terminal. So get over your hysteria-driven security-phobias folks. This terrorist threat business is just that, a business; a scam to get more of your monies and liberties. Of which it doesn’t look like there having any problem getting these days!

    Look at the little child in NY just walking home from school. When will you get it America that we have far more to fear from the criminals on our streets and in our government then we do from those on the other side of the freak’in planet?

      Oh Boy! Speaking of a missing brain stem, when did you lose yours? Let us follow your silly notion of security is a myth. Security is a myth; so why not absolve our military, police forces, and while we are at it get rid of the secret service. Since “security is a myth” we should just resort to anarchy since security doesn’t insure safety for all 100% of the time. Man, it’s not a lack of courage here from others it’s a lack of common sense on your part.

      1. Pilot.Dave says:

        James,

        Security from Police – they have laws they follow and groping a child without probable cause WILL put them in jail. Security from our Military – show me any other that can beat them, or one of our Brave Souls groping ANY female in public in Bagdad w/o being shot and maybe we will question it.

        But SERIOUSLY, security from TSA ?? LOL Show us a SINGLE terrorist they have caught for the $1 billion a year we pay, any you might have a point. Instead, look on YouTube and you’ll see plenty of TSA abusing innocent Americans.

      2. Majorthinker says:

        Just look at the Mexican Border, talk about a” Security Myth” bright boy.

    2. James says:

      Pilot Dave,

      It’s not about who you caught as much as what you have prevented. No well skilled terrorist is going to walk through a security checkpoint because of the policies in place now. If we were to have kept things at status quo after 9/11 then many box cutter copycats would have followed. The fact that we restrict their ability to kill in mass has prevented many potential terrorist acts.

      Police now have the right to hold sobriety checkpoints to stop drunk drivers. At these checkpoints you can be asked to have your car search for almost no reason at all. You may not even be inebriated when police make this call. Many sobriety checkpoints result in more arrest not related to a DUI than the DUI itself. So do you really think police are any less restricted than TSA?

      1. Ronald says:

        LOL, what has the TSA prevented???
        You can prove what the TSA prevented by who they have gotten arrested!

        It is 62 year old grandmothers with no criminal history who incur the TSA’s wrath!
        Have they gotten anyone with a criminal background arrested?

        People with criminal backgrounds are used to security checks by REAL LAW ENFORCEMENT, do you think they can’t get by the TSA who are NOT as well trained as Police officers!!!

      2. Pilot.Dave says:

        “James”

        News flash, real terroist HAVE gotten my TSA – underware bomber Chistmas in Detroit, “boy scout leader with live ammo (OK, if he were a terrorist he could have used it) http://stlouis.cbslocal.com/2011/07/20/boy-scout-leader-jailed-for-bullet-in-fanny-pack/

        The list of what TSA has let on is actually so funny. Maybe you are one of these agents ? Were you fired from guarding Wal-Mart because you were eathing their food? LOL

  117. MisterJones says:

    How about getting rid of the TSA and everyone (21 and above)carry a pistol this will keep any B.S. from going on .

    1. James says:

      Great idea! Let’s create environments on airplanes like it was during the old west since the old west was far more safer in preventing assault and terrorism than it is nowadays. The hits keep coming with some of you!

      1. Buckster says:

        Absolutely! Terrorism across the board (including all forms of muslim and government terrorism) would go down if Americans would increase the amount of people who carry and won’t hesitate to use a gun for their defense and the defense of those around them. You’d see crime drop out of sight as well as terrorism. 250 million guns on the streets and we have to have “homeland security” and TSA protecting us? How about a national “everybody carries” campaign, get people educated, and really promote that initiative. I’m for that all the way. Love to see 50 armed civies on a plane. I’d fly that plane any day. In fact, I may just fly for the fun and safety of it!

  118. A. Gabe says:

    Should have twisted the boob right off. . .

    1. James says:

      Yeah! You’re so right since I’m sure you had personally witnessed the assault that was incurred on this “poor old women”. Do you think all TSA employees should be shot? I think you do!

  119. ajl says:

    One of those idiots actually tried to take my insulin pump from me. In case you are not familiar with an insulin pump, it is attached to your body. I have been violated time and again and looking back, I wish I had reciprocated the way this lady did. Maybe we all should file a class action law suit against tsa.

    1. James says:

      Did you inform them in advance you had an insulin pump? Did you inform the person at the check-in counter about it as well to determine if it would have alerted any security checks?

      I watched many people who were handicapped go through checkpoints without issue. I have an Aunt who travels with an insulin pump but she never complains about the TSA.

      It sounds like an isolated issue to me!

      1. ajl says:

        Yes, I informed them. That is when they typically detain me, swarm me like I am a threat, swab my hands/pump, wand and pat me down, then empty my bags. As an adaptive response to this unwelcomed treatment, I have learned to remove the pump before passing through security, stick it in my purse and reconnect it after passing through. Then no agents take issue with it. In case you still don’t understand James, the point is, if it were really a threat (bomb) tsa wouldn’t notice it in my bag, but takes issue only if I am wearing it. Where is the logic in that? By the way, I am a grandmother in my 50’s, and a retired Federal Law Enforcement Officer with 27 years experience in REAL security. I am very familier with security procedures. I am not questioning the need for prudent airport security. I assert my above examples depict a common ineptitude, poor reasoning and unprofessional conduct, that pervades throughout many of the airports I have recently traveled through. Their procedures are obviously questionable, needing better supervision, and an emphasis on training of how to deal with innocent human beings.

  120. James says:

    They won’t prosecute because they know they have almost no chance of getting a conviction if it’s a jury trial. They’ll keep downgrading the charges until it becomes a case that can be tried by a judge alone. The TSA/DHS also don’t like all this attention being drawn to their useless and most likely illegal procedures and policies.

    1. James says:

      I’m the James with rational thought where you’re the James relying on obscure speculation.

      Give me one reason why you think like you do about the TSA that is a real life experience and not just what you read. Do you really travel?

      1. Ronald says:

        TSA hasn’t made news by struggling with real terrorists… they made news by strong-arming an innocent grandmother.

        Real terrorists get past security without making a commotion.

      2. ajl says:

        James, I refer you to my previous post, it is real and factual. Also, FYI, your post-pubescent naivete’, nor your unwillingness to actually consider the honest accounts of other people offering life experiences beyond yours, does not justify your implication that I am lying. This is my last response to you.

      3. ronald says:

        James, when the TSA makes news by getting a real criminal arrested instead of a 62 year old grandmother with no criminal history, THEN you can tell me they are doing their job.

  121. Majorthinker says:

    Everybody fly NAKED, problem solved. If you can’t seem to deal with that you can be issued a paper coverall to put on in a changing room.

    1. James says:

      Good idea – We have hospital gowns so why not airplane gowns before boarding. Issue resolved!

      1. ronald says:

        Great James, You lead…. be an example and go thru the airport naked to show your support for the TSA.

        But you are simply a keyboard warrior who lives in fear of the world.

  122. Follow The Money says:

    TSA screeners were supposed to replace private security that was provided by the airlines and it worked, then Janet Napolitano and John Pistole decided to turn wal mart trained security guards into their own personal police force complete with badges that are primarily used for trying to get out of traffic tickets and blue vinyl gloves to protect them while they are molesting men, women and children at our nations airports, every day americans who refuse to use rapcion full body scanners that were being peddled by former TSA administrator Michael Chertoff, are forced to submit to some of the most degrading acts in the name of state security.

  123. Chris Smith says:

    She’s lucky TSA didn’t steal her Ipod and jewelry. TSA is nothing more than a den of perverts and thieves.

  124. pokahontess says:

    we have been dooped into submission,we are no longer a free nation,how did this happen..the progressive left has taken over, did we not hear.”I AM A CITIZEN OF THE WORLD” what axactley do you all think that ment are we voting like the osrich?..how did this happen..go back to when it started..to become a reality..in the 60ty’s prayer baned from schools..sexual sceans became more and more a norm in T.V and movies..now dont spank your children..tsa stats lowered for all children to get a passing grade,no child left behind..not new it happened long ago..professors from radical backgrounds teaching anti- americanisum..all manner of debouched life styles are glorified by hollywood, freedom of spech means one can freely use the F” word ”BUT DONT YOU DARE SAY JESUS ..it’s offends others… mothers dressing like tini boppers, teachers seducing teen boys..why is all of this happening..because we have allowed the left to push GOD OUT OF THE USA…

  125. ontie1 says:

    TSA falls into that category of jobs saved, no one can prove anything but it sure sounds great, the problem is they are government union employees and the Feds wiil not go to a cheaper more efficient type of private contractor and stop wasting taxpayer money by using the TSA as a deemer voting block….

  126. Ronnie says:

    It is sad to think that the terrorist have won. But it will be even sadder once a plane is brought down by someone so willing to die. Then where will the out cry come from? If only we had taken more measures to stop such a brutal act commited by such a violent people, will be the headline. Then complain about an inconvient body search, as we watch the body bags be loaded, one by one.

    1. ivanthedestroyer77 says:

      Ronnie,

      Hey, ding dong … the terrorists have SAM portables. However, if they wanted to Strong-Arm another plane, sure, there is nothing to stop them! DON’T THINK FOR A SECOND THAT TSA IS EVEN AN OBSTACLE! NO BOMBS ARE NECESSARY, nor Anything that can be construed as a WEAPON, MORON. That’s the tactical Operations of the 9/11 attacks … STUPID!

  127. Bucko says:

    This woman should be hailed in the same spirit as Rosa Parks.

    1. Bucko says:

      Sheesh, just after posting that I searched the page for the word “Rosa.” That thought about Rosa Parkst just popped into my head. Guess I wasn’t the only one, not by a long shot. Sort of obvious, huh?

  128. Cappy Hamper says:

    Victory for travelers.

  129. Jon Weiss says:

    If she were to go to trial, and I were on the jury, I have to vote for “self Defense.”.

  130. Alex says:

    Typical – minority privilege. You know they would have if she was White.

  131. Buckster says:

    Terrorism across the board (including all forms of muslim and government terrorism) would go down if Americans would increase the amount of people who carry and won’t hesitate to use a gun for their defense and the defense of those around them. You’d see crime drop out of sight as well as terrorism. 250 million guns on the streets and we have to have “homeland security” and TSA protecting us? How about a national “everybody carries” campaign, get people educated, and really promote that initiative. I’m for that all the way. Love to see 50 armed civies on a plane. I’d fly that plane any day. In fact, I may just fly for the fun and safety of it!

  132. divegoddess65 says:

    I travel quite a bit and am wondering why I have not had similar experiences as most of you. I was patted down one time and was more annoyed then violated. I’ve also flown to middle eastern countries and will tell you that security is much tighter then in the US. I also would not want to end up on a plane with someone seeking to do harm. I guess I value the lives of my family, friends and strangers more!!!!!

  133. justinc says:

    EVERYONE NEEDS TO DO THIS TO TSA. They can’t arrest EVERYONE. Sick of the abuse. Sick of our rights being eroded. Sick of big government. Do something about it. She did.

  134. pete sommer says:

    PROFILE and look for the bad people – as they do in Israel.
    The rest of it is a WASTE OF TIME and MUCH MONEY.

    1. The Jig Is Up says:

      Oh yes, let’s emulate that fascist little apartheid state that drains America of all its money. They profile, yes, but they have armed soldiers on every street. No thanks. That is not the kind of country I want for my kids. “But they have to protect themselves!” you bleat, right? Right, but why did things devolve to that point? Because Israel treats everyone around them like absolute sh t. Then they wonder why everyone hates them.

  135. Sam Smirks says:

    The TSA is nothing but a bunch of pedophiles and rapists committing thousands of instances of felony sexual assault every day. Those who [pretend to] support sexual assault as a condition of travel clearly are part of that klan and need to be given the TSA prison shower experience for their rapes and child pornography trade.

    TSA pedophile positions are advertized on pizza boxes which is why so many of them are fat, acne-faced dopes who barely graduated high school. If they had any class or initiative at all, they would be real people with real jobs.

  136. Gary says:

    You know what is really crazy. I work for the U.S. government in Afghanistan. When I get on a plane from Dubai (Non-Stop) to Atlanta I dont get searched. They scan your bags and you go through a metal detector. Thats It. OMG were all gonna die! I dont get raped until I hit my connecting flight already in the U.S. So how are we more safe with what TSA is doing.

    1. Gary says:

      Please don’t bash me for working for the government. As a 15 year veteran of the U.S. Army I would rather have a job working at home, but there arent any. I’m awake and remind soldiers of their oaths as much as I can get away with.

    2. Buckster says:

      I as well have worked in Iraq and Afghanistan as a contractor and was amazed at the lack of post 911 security at their airports compared with our police state. On one such occasion at KWI (Kuwait), next door to Iraq, I exited the gate to find a package (small suitcase) sitting all by itself about 30 feet from the security gate. No one was around or making an issue. Coming from America, I got the attention of security and pointed it out. They walked calmly over to it as they had not noticed it yet. After a few minutes of “checking it out” it was casually removed with no fanfare or media attention.

      I was shocked at the perceived security they do have and applaud them for not “freaking” out and needlessly destroying rights of the people through ridiculous and unwarranted searches and seizures. ….and thats a muslim county!

    I started a facebook group.

    Its called STOP starting facebook groups about every little thing & Stop including that someone started a facebook group in news reports.

  138. B.J. says:

    I CURSE THE tsa!! DAILY!!

    TtHIS WOMAN IS A HERO AND MORE TSA AGENTS SHOULD BE ASSAULTED
