Typical ATS stupid responses.

The woman broke the law by putting her hands on the TSA worker without the TSA workers permission.

The End.

Not agreeing with TSA security enforcement is NOT grounds to assault someone.


if you search you will see that the law has no jurisdiction for the citizens who are offended, molested and groped by the TSA, so why should they have any for the workers?

double standard if you ask me and should be challenged in court as such. if you go to the airport you are no longer covered by the constitution nor the bill of rights.

I guess i lucked out over the winter when i had to take a few trips to FL.

I had absolutely no issues with the TSA nor did my sister, it was like normal airport security but with a fancy uniform. Hell the guys even joked around with us and kept us interested while we were waiting in line.

My last visit, I refused the Back-Scanner and opted for the "Pat-Down". The TSA agent was obviously perturbed about having to "go to work" so when he patted me down, he rammed his hand up into my scrotum so hard, it all most made me keel over. I felt the pain all the way up to my gate and for several minutes after I'd sat down. What a colossal waste of time and money.

buying a ticket does not grant them the right nor does it mean you consent or waver your rights in anyway ,

people loose their lives in numeros wars only for the people they faugth for to be held up and treated like animals in cages,

way to go ,




you didn't read a single word i wrote did you?
i didn't say anything about any rights, i said when you buy a ticket you are consenting to their rules, so it isn't sexual assault.

this is like any business, you give consent by paying them, this includes following the rules they set. if you don't follow the rules as you agreed to, they will kick you out and refuse you service.
this includes airports and the TSA giving pat downs. you refuse the scanner or a patdown, you don't get to fly, deal with it by either following the rules or don't fiy.

let me ask you, other than the uncomfortable nature of what the TSA does, what about their job is taking your rights way that is any different than say a club doing the same? clubs also pat down people, to make sure they don't have weapons.
do you considered that a violation of your rights? even when they do it to protect the club goers, including you?
the airlines have the right to search people to protect fliers, or else no one would fly out of fear.

don't get me wrong, i understand why people don't like it. they feel that the TSA agents go too far when doing the pat downs, i get that much. also no one wants their space invaded by people they perceive as unwanted.

the thing is, i don't believe half the stories, because the media always skews it, and so do a lot of people that experience it. they end up exaggerating their experiences because they read about other peoples experiences and it turns into a big fish story, where it seems to get worse as the story gets retold.

Why don't they find a real job and just walk out on the TSA. It would be hard for them to enforce this crap if no-one wanted to work for them.

If you work for the TSA for 5 years you get health insurance for life, along with other benefits.
It's not hard to see why people would work for them. Not saying I would (not saying I wouldn't)

#ing ridiculous people. We bitched and complained about how are nation was not safe...we need to stop terrorists. We've taken that extra step with TSA which I have to agree with. I've been patted down and while it was a little uncomfortable I knew they had a job to do.

I don't know about you guys but I sure in hell don't want to blow up on a plane or dive bomb into a building because some terrorist shoved something up his butt hole.

The people that get pissed are the ones that read stupid stories like this and get their defenses all up expecting to be groped. If you don't want to take that chance then you can drive.

They pressed charges to use her as an example I suppose. It's good that they dropped the charges and she wasn't made into an example by the judicial system.
Can you at least choose the gender of the person that is going to pat you down ?

The TSA uses a double standard just like the paparazzi does with taking photos of people. It's alright for the TSA to put their hands on you, but it's assault for you to put your hands on them.

It's alright for the paparazzi to sit in a tree and take photos inside a persons home, but it's illegal for everyone else because it's classified as invasion of privacy and stalking. But when a celebrity fight back they are sued. There is no difference here with the TSA. The law states, a person has to give consent before they are legally allowed to be touched and this goes for the police as well. Unless a person is unruly, in danger or under the influence, an officer of the law must ask permission to touch the person of interest.

Maybe if more people sued the TSA, they would get the hint that what they are doing is not right. Of course, a person doesn't even need a high school diploma to work for the TSA. So maybe they won't get the hint.

It hurts thier feelings when you tell them they aren't doing it right and then show them. Why don't they find a real job and just walk out on the TSA. It would be hard for them to enforce this crap if no-one wanted to work for them.

I'd love to be on the jury on this one!

That is the most asinine bull# I have ever heard. We CANNOT give the government permission unless we INDIVIDUALLY give them permission. They do not have the right to insist on us allowing them to violate our fourth amendment rights.

If it was a choice by the private airline and not a govt. mandate and it was enforced BY the airline and NOT a govt agency, then and ONLY then would we be agreeing to it as terms for using their private service. If the govt is doing it, it is the most blatant violation of the fourth amendment ever PERPETRATED on the American people and people like you who want to give away MY rights out of YOUR cowardice make me sick to my stomach....
