Thread: TSA Groping Out Of Control

    TSA workers complain about security crackdown

    Harriet Baskas
    Nov 23, 2010

    Airline passengers aren’t the only ones complaining about the Transportation Security Administration’s new enhanced security procedures. Many TSA employees aren’t too happy, either.

    The American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), the union that represents TSA workers, is urging the TSA to do more to protect its employees from abuse from airline passengers angry over the new security methods.

    The union reports that some members “have reported instances in which passengers have become angry, belligerent and even physical with TSOs (transportation security officers). In Indianapolis, for example, a TSO was punched by a passenger who didn’t like the new screening process,” the union said in a Nov. 17 statement posted on its website.

    Union President John Gage called on TSA to provide an educational pamphlet to each passenger describing both their rights and the details of the new procedures, which include full-body scans and enhanced pat-downs.

    Polls Indicate Americans Waking Up To TSA Tyranny

    Majority against groping measures, more are turning against naked body scanners

    Tuesday, Nov 23rd, 2010

    A new national poll indicates that the majority of Americans are against the enhanced TSA pat-downs that some have likened to sexual molestation, while more travelers are turning against the full body scanners as they learn more about the risks associated with the technology.

    The issue has been forced into the mainstream right in time for Thanksgiving, which coincides with a national opt-out day, during which thousands traveling to see their relatives will refuse to co-operate with over the top TSA security procedures.

    The latest Washington Post/ABC News poll, conducted Nov. 21, reveals that public support for the radiation-firing imaging machines has dropped to 64%.

    This still represents a strong majority, however it is encouraging to note that an earlier CBS News poll conducted Nov. 7-10 found that 81% supported the machines.

    This means that in the space of just over one week, public support of the scanning machines dropped by around 17 percentage points.

    If you factor in travelers who say they are less frequent fliers, support for the scanners drops to 58%.

    In total, 32% now say they are opposed to the machines, according to the Washington Post/ABC poll.

    There can be little doubt that this shift in popular support is a direct result of the increase in media attention regarding the dangers of the scanners and the threat to privacy that the machines represent.

    The Drudge Report in particular has carried links to such stories among its top headlines for a fortnight now.

    In addition, the decision on behalf of pilots and flight attendants to speak out regarding the adverse health effects associated with the backscatter x-ray devices has clearly influenced public opinion. Both pilots and flight attendants have now been granted exemption from the machines.

    It will be most interesting to see if the percentage figures drop even further next week as the surveys catch up with the height of the news coverage.

    The latest poll also indicates that a majority of Americans are against the enhanced pat down procedures that the TSA now operates, with 50% saying the thorough pat-downs, which allow workers to grope breasts and genitals, go too far. 48% say the searches do not go too far, though it is difficult to imagine how much further they could go, without being full cavity searches.

    The dramatic difference in terms popular support for pat-downs, compared to support for the scanners can be attributed to the influx of horror stories from travelers all over the country, detailing TSA transgressions during pat-downs.

    'Officials have warned that American citizens who opt out of the naked body scanners and intrusive patdowns will be arrested. Basically if you do not wish to have your genitals molested by a LOW IQ TSA goon than you will be thrown into jail. Welcome to the new world order.'

    Ron Paul: Crotch Groped by TSA, Calls for Boycott of Airlines

    Kurt Nimmo
    Prison Planet.com
    Tuesday, November 23, 2010

    Appearing on the Alex Jones Show today, Texas Congressman Ron Paul expressed his outrage and disgust with the TSA and its unconstitutional naked body scanners and genital groping under the transparent pretense of protecting the American people from terrorists in distant caves.

    “If we tolerate this,” Paul said, “there’s something wrong with us.” He added that the American people deserve to be humiliated and demeaned by the government if they refuse to stand up and resist.

    Paul predicted Americans will eventually boycott the airlines to put an end to the intrusive searches and the unconscionable use of dangerous backscatter radiation naked body scanners. “Maybe the Congress will get off their duffs and do something in January,” he said, “and insist we reign in the TSA.”

    Responding to Alex Jones’ assertion that the TSA’s actions are akin to what the Nazis did in Germany during the 1930s, Ron Paul said that we long ago capitulated on “showing our papers” and now routinely provide Social Security numbers to employers and show our government issued driver’s license as an accepted form of identification. “Now the government wants us to show them our genitalia and they want to take pictures of us and put their hands into our pants,” he said.

    Paul said due to pervasive coverage of TSA abuses by the corporate media, the American people are now beginning to ask serious questions about government conduct.

    “I think it’s a healthy wake-up call to a lot of Americans,” Paul told Jones. “I just hope they can work that in to the whole concept of what’s been going on with our country for a long time – the government is too big and intrusive and abuses our rights and they do the things the shouldn’t be doing and they forget about the things they were instructed to do.”

    Congressman Paul said in the course of his work representing the people of Texas he has to endure TSA abuse, including the latest “enhanced pat down” that verges on sexual molestation. “I have to go through that all the time because I have metal in my knees,” he explained. “I get prodded all the time and it is disgusting and I tell them so.” Paul admitted that the TSA has groped his crotch.

    He said he believes a boycott of the airlines will be necessary if we are going to force the government to back down and stop acting like a sexual predator. “I am going to be doing everything conceivable to try to change these rules because they are not making us safer, they aren’t better for us – it’s just to enhance the power of the state.”

    Police State USA: TSA Gestapo Empire

    11-24-2010 02:57 AM

    'It doesn’t take a bureaucrat long to create an empire. John Pistole, the FBI agent who took over the Transportation Security Administration on July 1 told USA Today 16 days later that protecting trains and subways from terrorist attacks will be as high a priority for him as air travel.

    It is difficult to imagine New Yorkers being porno-screened and sexually groped on crowed subway platforms or showing up an hour or two in advance for clearance for a 15 minute subway ride, but once bureaucrats get the bit in their teeth they take absurdity to its logical conclusion. Buses will be next, although it is even more difficult to imagine open air bus stops turned into security zones with screeners and gropers inspecting passengers before they board.

    Will taxi passengers be next?* In those Muslim lands whose citizens the US government has been slaughtering for years, favorite weapons for retaliating against the Americans are car and truck bombs. How long before Pistole announces that the TSA Gestapo is setting up roadblocks on city streets, highways and interstates to check cars for bombs? That 15 minute trip to the grocery store then becomes an all day affair.'

    Peep-and-Grope (Body Scanners and Invasive Pat Downs): Coming to Subways, Trains, Boats and Federal Buildings?

    Washington’s Blog
    Nov 24, 2010*
    For those who think that the resistance to TSA groping and naked body scanning is over-the-top, take a look at [video=youtube;RhkQoiaf7Uc]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhkQoiaf7Uc&feature=player_embedded"]this video[/URL] and these quotesblow up the terrorists (please ignore the religious smear).

    Of course, it would help if we stop creating new terrorists. See this, this and this. But that would be bad for the handful of guys raking in big bucks from the protection racket.

    Ron Paul is calling for an airline boycott, :

    If we tolerate this there is something wrong with us.

    But this may not be limited to airlines and airports. Janet Napolitano, head of the Department Homeland Security and Senator Joe Lieberman, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, appear to be pushing for the use of body scanners in subways, trains, boats and federal buildings.

    And in July, USA Today noted:

    Protecting riders on mass-transit systems from terrorist attacks will be as high a priority as ensuring safe air travel, the new head of the Transportation Security Administration promises. In his first interview since taking over the TSA, former FBI deputy director John Pistole told USA TODAY that some terrorists consider subway and rail cars an easier target than heavily secured planes. “Given the list of threats on subways and rails over the last six years going on seven years, we know that some terrorist groups see rail and subways as being more vulnerable because there’s not the type of screening that you find in aviation,” he said. “From my perspective, that is an equally important threat area.”*

    Indeed, as Forbes’ Andy Greenberg notes, mobile backscatter x-ray scanners are already being mounted in vans and used on American streets:

    The same technology, capable of seeing through clothes and walls, has also been rolling out on U.S. streets.

    It would also seem to make the vans mobile versions of the same scanning technique that’s riled privacy advocates as it’s been deployed in airports around the country.


    “It’s no surprise that governments and vendors are very enthusiastic about [the vans],” says Marc Rotenberg, executive director of EPIC. “But from a privacy perspective, it’s one of the most intrusive technologies conceivable.”

    “Screw Big Sis”: Man Strips Down In TSA Opt Out Protest

    Paul Joseph Watson
    Prison Planet.com
    Wednesday, November 24, 2010

    A man kicked off today’s National Opt Out Day protest against TSA screening measures in a bold fashion, stripping down to his speedo’s with the words “Screw Big Sis” scrawled on his back before passing through security at Salt Lake City International Airport.

    Telling screeners that he was stripping down as a “safety precaution,” a TSA worker barked, “put your clothes back on,” before fetching a supervisor, who asked the man to put his shirt back on but stopped short of saying he was legally obligated to do so.

    The man refused to put his shirt back on and walked through the metal detector, telling TSA agents he was making a “political statement,” before TSA workers responded in a mocking fashion.

    “Why the speedo? With the way TSA screening is going it only seems like the next logical requirement for getting on an airplane,” writes the blogger behind the protest. “Soon TSA will be having us strip down to make the screening process more efficient, but not if we take a stand. In this sense Jimmy was merely obliging the TSA, but he was also exposing the ridiculousness of their policies. With the full-body scanners and TSA agents putting their hands down our pants, let’s be honest, a speedo is pretty modest.”

    “As I walked away an airport employee jokingly turned to me and said, ‘Big Sis is watching you’ and I couldn’t agree with him more,” states the man.

    “And I think it’s about time that she knows we’re watching her too.”

    Poll: Majority oppose body scans, nearly half seek alternative to flying

    Eric W. Dolan
    Raw Story
    Nov 24, 2010

    The use of backscatter x-ray machines to scan travelers’ bodies and new pat down procedures at airports will cause 48% of Americans to seek an alternative means of transportation, according to a Zogby International poll.

    Of the 2,032 likely voters polled between November 19 and November 22, 61 percent said they oppose the use of body scanners and pat downs.

    The findings of the Zogby poll strikingly contradict an earlier poll of 1,137 adults conducted by CBS News November 7 to November 10. That poll found only 15 percent of respondents were opposed to the use of body scanners at airport security checkpoints, with four out of five saying they’re in favor.

    A Washington Post-ABC News poll of 514 adults conducted on November 21 found over half of respondents supported the use of body scanners and 70 percent supported the use of profiling at airports.

    Another poll, conducted by USA TODAY/Gallup and published today, found that most travelers are bothered or angered by pat downs.

    TSA Gropers Prone To Predatory Criminal Behavior

    Deviants, perverts and rapists are attracted to airport pat down jobs

    Paul Joseph Watson
    Prison Planet.com
    Wednesday, November 24, 2010

    News that a TSA employee abducted a woman before sexually assaulting her is just the latest example of how TSA workers are prone to criminal and predatory behavior particularly targeting women and children, emphasizing once again why they are attracted to jobs that allow them to sexually molest and ogle vulnerable members of society.

    “A TSA employee based at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport tried to kill himself after allegedly abducting a woman, sexually assaulting her then giving her a suicide note to deliver,” reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

    49-year-old Randall Scott King kidnapped the woman after she had accompanied him from the airport. Whether or not King abused his power as a TSA officer to make the woman accompany him is still being investigated by police.

    The story arrives on the same day as another incident highlighting once again how TSA workers transfer their predatory sexual behavior from their private lives to their jobs.

    A young woman with ample breasts was targeted by TSA workers for extra screening after they ogled her body.

    “It was pretty obvious. One of the guys that was staring me up and down was the one who pulled me over,” said Eliana Sutherland. “Not a comfortable feeling.”

    Working in airport security seems to attract perverts, rapists and pedophiles because it gives them legitimate cover through which to exercise their deviancy. Indeed, a prank caller who pretended to be a sex pervert phoned the TSA about applying for a job and was treated seriously by a TSA staffer.

    Back in March it emerged that TSA worker Sean Shanahan, who was employed at Boston Logan International Airport to pat down passengers, had been charged with multiple child sex crimes targeting an underage girl.

    Similarly, 57-year-old Charles Henry Bennett, who worked at Orlando International Airport as a TSA screener, was arrested earlier this month in connection with the molestation of a 6-year-old girl whom he planned to make his “sex slave”.

    Stories about TSA officials and other airport security workers abusing the use of naked body scanners have become commonplace.

    44-year-old Rolando Negrin beat his supervisor with a police baton after he had cracked jokes about Negrin’s small manhood when he walked through a naked scanner as part of a training exercise at Miami International Airport. The story underscored the fact that authorities had been lying all along about the claim that the scanners did not show sensitive details of genitalia.

    Indian film star Shahrukh Khan told a BBC talk show that naked images of his body from the scanner were printed out and circulated by airport staff at Heathrow in London. Heathrow denied the claim but Khan himself never retracted the story, and had no apparent motive for making it up.

    Heathrow authorities were unable to deny a later example of the scanners being abused, when it emerged that a Heathrow worker had perved over a naked image of a female colleague after she passed through one of the devices, before commenting, “I love those gigantic tits”.

    Jo Margetson, 29, reported John Laker, 25, to the police after she had entered the x-ray machine by mistake and Laker took the image before making lewd comments.

    Airport security staff workers are among the least trustworthy people to operate these machines. Such individuals are routinely caught abusing their authority for their own ego trip or sexual perversion.

    TSA workers have also been caught in other abuses of power, including stealing laptop computers, sabotaging sensitive screening databases, and joking about planting drugs on travelers.

    The naked scanners are being manned by people like a shortly after he got off duty at LAX earlier this year.

    The fact that the most deviant, perverted, megalomaniacal and criminally-minded dregs of society are attracted to TSA pat down jobs tells you everything you need to know about the nature of the Transportation Security Administration and how its role has nothing to do with preventing terrorism and everything to do with ritualizing the degradation and humiliation of the American people.

    TSA Administrative Directive: Opt-Outters To Be Considered “Domestic Extremists”

    Mac Slavo
    SHTF Plan
    Nov 24, 2010

    If the information recently acquired by Doug Hagmann of Northeast Intelligence Network is accurate, then something really big is happening in America right now – and it’s most certainly not a step towards individual liberty.

    According to Mr. Hagmann, he was contacted by a source within the DHS who provided an alarming memo detailing a new administrative directive agreed upon by DHS chief Janet Napolitano and the head of TSA John Pistole. The memo, according to Doug Hagmann, “officially addresses those who are opposed to, or engaged in the disruption of the implementation of the enhanced airport screening procedures as ‘domestic extremists’.”

    The memo leaves no doubt as to who, exactly, is leading the charge to label Americans who refuse current security measures due to health and privacy concerns as extremists. “The measures to be taken in response to the negative public backlash as detailed [in this directive], have the full support of the President,” it says.

    Under the new labeling procedures, those who choose to opt-out or are perceived as being troublemakers will be detained, questioned and processed for further investigation:

    The terminology contained within the reported memo is indeed troubling. It labels any person who “interferes” with TSA airport security screening procedure protocol and operations by actively objecting to the established screening process, “including but not limited to the anticipated national opt-out day”* as a “domestic extremist.” The label is then broadened to include “any person, group or alternative media source” that actively objects to, causes others to object to, supports* and/or elicits support for anyone who engages in such travel disruptions at U.S. airports in response to the enhanced security procedures.

    For individuals who engaged in such activity at screening points, it instructs TSA operations to obtain the identities of those individuals and other applicable information and submit the same electronically to the Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division, the Extremism and Radicalization branch of the Office of Intelligence & Analysis (IA) division of the Department of Homeland Security.

    The United States government, under complete control and direction of our elected President, is now actively labeling anyone who exercises their 4th amendment Constitutional right which protects against warrantless and unreasonable searches and seizures as, essentially, engaging in terrorism as defined by Section 802 of the USA Patriot Act:

    Section 802 [USA Patriot Act]

    (a) DOMESTIC TERRORISM DEFINED- Section 2331 of title 18, United States Code, is amended–
    ‘(5) the term `domestic terrorism’ means activities that–
    ‘(B) appear to be intended–
    ‘(i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
    ‘(ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or
    Though it may seem a broad interpretation, the definitions for domestic terrorism are very vague, allowing for a variety of views depending on who happens to be making the decisions. The very fact that TSA is allegedly going to label opt-out travelers as ‘domestic extremists’ suggest that they are, by today’s standards, considered no different than terrorists – and thus – may have their Constitutional rights stripped and be held without trial. In a previous article we discussed Matt Kernan, who may have found a Constitutional argument that works to avoid enhanced security in the airport. But, what if the-powers-that-be determined, by whatever vague definition, that the Constitution doesn’t apply?

    With the outrage from American travelers and the pressure being put on corporate profits, the President and TSA may eventually change their tune. But if they don’t, then we can expect more intrusive checkpoints from our government in the very near future. Ms. Napolitano has already publicly stated that DHS is looking at other mass transit systems like buses and trains as the next target.

    Something big is happening. And either the American people are going to force the change – starting with each individual making a personal decision to stand up against policies that can be described as nothing less than tyrannical – or the expansion of surveillance and control systems will continue to spread.

    If the American people fail this time as we did with bailouts and healthcare, the end result will be backscatter machines in schools, malls, stadiums, and any other public venue which is deemed a security threat by our government.
