Female Passengers Say They’re Targeted By TSA

Women passengers complain that TSA agents are targeting them for extra screening.

“I feel like I was totally exposed,” said Ellen Terrell, who is a wife and mother. “They wanted a nice good look.”

“I think it’s sexual harassment if you’re run through there a third or fourth time,“ responded Texas State Representative Lon Burnam of Fort Worth. “And this is not the first time I have heard about it,” said Burnam, who adds that a number of his constituents have voiced concerns about privacy.

CBS 11 News dug through more than 500 records of TSA complaints and found a pattern of women who believe that there was nothing random about the way they were selected for extra screening.

“After that, I saw him going to the private room where x-rays are, to speak to the guy on that room.”

“I know he went to that room to see my naked body through the machine with the other guy.”

“When I looked around, I saw that there were only women that were “told” to go through this machine. There were no men.”

Fortunately, this will no longer be limited to the airports.

"We are not the Airport Security Administration," said Ray Dineen, the air marshal in charge of the TSA office in Charlotte. "We take that transportation part seriously." The TSA's 25 "viper" teams — for Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response — have run more than 9,300 unannounced checkpoints and other search operations in the last year. Department of Homeland Security officials have asked Congress for funding to add 12 more teams next year.

At 2:55, classic Ron Paul.

Makes you wonder how many terrorists are in the making because of this type of treatment. People only usually lash out when life becomes too unfair.

Americans are not lashing out at all.
I'm really not sure why.

Americans will protest and put it on video.

I cannot believe that Frank Zappa is standing in the line to be groped!


[color=#FF0000]The TSA is not about making Americans safer. lt is about generating income for those government employees who hold stock in the companies that make the airport scanners and those government employees who get large sums of cash from the lobbyists for those companies.

While innocent Americans get scanned, groped, leered at, and have their credit cards photocopied and their belongings stolen by TSA henchmen, TERRORISTS are walking into the USA from Mexico across the Arizona/Mexico border unmolested, unhindered, and free to proceed at their own leisure.

If you want more FREEDOM and less FASCISM, then stop electing Democrats and Republicans!!!

My little boy would love to go to America, just to visit Disneyland/world, however bearing in mind i've always told him that anyone, and i mean anyone touches you down there, you kick, punch, bite, scream or whatever to make sure you inflict injury on them, i dont think we would make it past passport control. He's also been taking martial arts for the last 2 years.
There is no way i'm allowing my family through one of those scanners, so the only option is sexual molestation (not happening) or the US not getting my vacation dollars, it might not be much but more people that stop travelling hits everyone

Well, they'll just be portrayed as exactly that "irrational terrorists" or "extremists" that "hate us for our freedom" or some other nonsensical reason.

Errr, what freedom? The freedom to get sexually violated and molested?

And this pretty much sums up the hypocrisy of big government.

You're fooling yourself if you think Ron Paul can win.
Maybe in a fair election, but it's so obviously rigged.

Yes the system is rigged but can he win? Absolutely.

Anyone can win as long as they have the support of the people. So we have to build support and spread the message. As the fraud becomes increasingly blatant, it will crash the system.

i think it's fair to say that any type of "law" enforcement attracts mentally unstable individuals to it's ranks.

This all goes back to the coming Fascist Revolution. The Fascist's fill government agencies to the brim with Psychopaths(people with no conscience) who see nothing wrong with doing garbage like this. That causes people to lose faith in government agencies and in the government itself.

The reason why their first attempt failed was because people still had faith in government and faith in government agencies.

So these last 40+ years have been about destroying it. So when the day comes they can march in, round up the bureaucrats and politicians, and do what fascist's do. All the while they will be cheered on and loved for it.

Because we are already accustomed to living in a fascist society. Remove the psychopaths, and add in competent individuals: people would happily go along with it and revel in their new found "freedom".

I often question if it is worth it trying to speak to the deaf, or motion signs of warning to the blind.
