Thread: TSA Groping Out Of Control

    Did TSA cave on scanners for Thanksgiving rush?

    Daniel Tencer
    Raw Story
    Nov 25, 2010

    News reports on Thursday declared the National Opt-Out Day protest against TSA screening procedures a bust, noting short wait times at airport security screening and TSA reports that there wasn’t any spike in passengers opting out of body scanners.

    But reports from travelers and local news sources suggest that at some of the busiest airports in the US the TSA has backed down and resorted to using the old screening procedures — metal detectors and less-intrusive pat-downs.

    And anecdotal reports from airports across the country suggest lighter-than-expected passenger traffic, suggesting that some travelers may have decided to “opt out” of the screening procedures by not flying at all.

    “One day before the the pre-Thanksgiving wave crests, Atlanta’s airport was notably subdued, vendors and travelers said, with minimal wait times and limited, if any, use of the controversial full-body scanners,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Atlanta-Hartsfield, a Delta hub, is the busiest airport in the nation.

    TSA Tip of the spear

    Sovereign Man
    Nov 25, 2010

    Military tacticians and historians often make use of the term ‘tip of the spear.’ It refers to a combat force that is used to puncture the enemy’s initial lines of defense, to be quickly followed by concentrated forces which destroy any remaining threat.

    Tactically, the tip of the spear is a bit of a blitzkrieg– an unexpected onslaught of firepower and destruction that takes the enemy by surprise, scatters his resources, and fractures his morale.

    I’m convinced that what we’re seeing right now from the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is the tip of the spear in the government’s battle for increased control of the public.

    The groundwork has been laid for years– legislation empowering the TSA has gradually eroded civil liberties to the point that airports in the United States have now become ‘no rights’ zones. “Please remove your shoes” has now become “Take out your prosthetic breast so I can check it for explosives.”

    Passengers who show up to an airport in the United States are now given two options: (a) go through the radiation bath [don't worry, the government says it's safe...] and let the TSA see you naked, or (b) let the TSA thugs grope you and fondle your children’s genitals.

    This is not enhanced security protocol, this is a systematic desensitization to government intrusion. The idea is to get people used to new procedures, then continue to add more layers of government control.

    Certainly, people will complain. They will be outraged… YouTube videos will abound of TSA agents stroking women’s breasts and disrobing 5-year old boys. The government will hold firm, though, responding that the tactics are necessary and that they will ‘look into’ egregious violations.

    To be clear, some of the tactics are designed to be scaled back as concessions. It’s like turning up the volume from 0 to 10… everyone starts screaming that it’s too loud, so the government turns it down to 8. People think, “ah, that’s not as bad…” and eventually become accustomed to the noise.

    In time, the government turns it up from 8 to 20. People pour into the streets again, protesting until the government turns it down from 20 to 15. People once again become accustomed to the noise as the new normal. This cycle escalates until no one can remember the sound of silence any longer.

    It’s fairly easy to do– there will always be politicians and bureaucrats who can invent stories about innocuous white powders and men in caves that scare the daylights out of people.

    Similarly, there will always be long lists of sociopaths, perverts, and pedophiles who are attracted to a job description that authorizes them to grope, fondle, humiliate, and intimidate others.

    And of course, there will always be spineless nincompoops who stand by without protest as their wives and children get violated by government agents… and then rationalize their inaction as a necessary sacrifice for safety.

    When I was in Bali the other day, I was flipping through channels on the TV and saw Mike Huckabee interviewing Whoopi Goldberg on FoxNews. “Now there’s a couple of intellectual luminaries,” I thought to myself. Whoopi wasted no time in summing up her intellect when she had this to say of the TSA’s tactics:

    “… if it’s going to keep me from getting blown out of the sky, you can check anything you want; and if you feel something you like and squeeze it… what am I going to do? [acknowledging laughter from Huckabee]”

    This coming from a woman who used to be a prostitute speaking to a man who thinks the earth is 5,000 years old.

    The fact is that body scanners are as ineffective at threat detection as metal detectors. Furthermore, the government has ruled out the idea of scanning air or seaborne cargo… because, clearly, cargo would never be a target. The little old lady with the prosthetic hip? Definitely. Cargo? No chance.

    These tactics are not about security… they’re about submission, obedience, and cultivating the slave mentality– that people should be afraid of their government and happily yield to authority without question or hesitation.

    To be fair, it’s not just in the US; I woke up this morning to a front page photo in the Wall Street Journal of a machine gun toting policeman in Germany cruising a passenger train because of some hackneyed terror threat. Much of the world is living in a similar state.

    This is the tip of the spear, and what comes next can only be worse. I don’t say this to stir emotion or create a sense of panic, but rather to appeal to reason:

    The threat is very clear– we need not fear men in caves or silly powders, but rather the malignant intentions of our governments and the perverse men who are attracted to its works. If these aren’t the clearest signs of a police state, I don’t know what else could be.

    I’m really interested to hear from you about this– what have you experienced during recent travels? Are these offenses -finally- enough to make you consider leaving? If not, where is the limit?

    Confirmed: TSA Switched Off Scanners To Defuse Opt Out Protest

    Newark airport controversial scanners are barely used on busiest travel day

    New Jersey Star-Ledger
    Thursday, November 25, 2010

    RELATED: Scandal: TSA Turns Off Scanners To Undermine Protest In Crude PR Stunt

    The choice between a “virtual strip search” and a “grope” was strictly academic Wednesday for most holiday travelers flying out of Newark Liberty International Airport.

    The majority of Newark’s full-body scanners were idle throughout much of the day, depriving most passengers of the chance to opt out of the controversial screening procedure even if they had wanted to.

    All in all, Thanksgiving eve was a non-event at Newark Liberty, reflecting the relative calm reported at airports around the country.

    “Things have gone very, very smoothly,” said Ann Davis, a spokeswoman for the Transportation Security Administration. “Wait times have been kept to a minimum, and we’ve been very pleased to hear quite a few compliments and thank yous coming from passengers.”

    Sanitary Towel Prompts TSA To Grope Sexual Assault Victim

    Forget concealed guns, knives, explosives, the real threat comes from gladrags

    Via Fly With Dignity (Left image courtesy David Vincent Wolf, right image courtesy Max Trombly)

    Steve Watson
    Thursday, Nov 25th, 2010

    Menstruating women beware. If you intend to travel, your panty-liners are now considered suspicious objects, after all you could be concealing a bomb in there.

    The latest insane TSA transgression answers questions that were raised last week when it was revealed naked body scanners can also detect sanitary napkins.

    New York Times reporter Joe Sharkey wrote Monday that he was getting a lot of requests for information from female frequent fliers.

    “Do the imagers, for example, detect sanitary napkins?” women wanted to know. “Yes,” wrote Sharkey.

    “Does that then necessitate a pat-down? The TSA couldn’t say. Screeners, the TSA has said, are expected to exercise some discretion.” the article continued.

    “And what about tampons?” asked the blog Feminist Peace Network. “They look kind of like sticks of dynamite. Are they going to ask us to pull them out and show them just to be sure?”

    The answer, judging from one woman’s written testimony, seems to be yes.

    A customer of popular women’s health company, Gladrags, relayed her recent experience at the hands of the TSA via email.

    In short, she was asked to walk through a radiation firing naked body scanner and complied. The scanner produced a naked image of her, but because her sanitary towel was obscuring her most intimate parts from prying eyes, the TSA agents pulled her aside for a full groin search. Not something to be relished by any person, let alone someone who has previously suffered sexual assault.

    Here is the woman’s email in full:

    “This email isn’t going to be as polished as I would normally send, but I’m upset and I don’t want what happened to me to happen to anyone else (if I can stop it).

    I recently traveled via air, and was subjected to that new scanning device. “No problem,” I thought. I was wearing jeans and a linen tanktop, bra, panties, and one camouflage pantyliner.

    I’m a rule follower, so I never have any problems at the airport. Not this time. I was stopped, and then held for 15 minutes while they tried to find a female supervisor. I couldn’t get to my bag, my shawl or my shoes; just standing there while the TSA agents kept me in one place.

    Now, I don’t want this to be about bad TSA agents; they were doing their job, they were as delicate as they could be, etc., etc. But what ultimately happened is that I was subjected to search so invasive that I was left crying and dealing with memories that I thought had been dealt with years ago of prior sexual assaults.


    Because of my flannel panty-liner. These new scans are so horrible that if you are wearing something unusual (like a piece of cloth on your panties) then you will be subjected to a search where a woman repeatedly has to check your “groin” while another woman watches on (two in my case – they were training in a new girl – awesome).

    So please, please, tell the ladies not to wear their liners at the airport (I didn’t even have an insert in). I’m a strong, confident woman; I’m an Army vet (which is why those camo liners crack me up), I work full-time and go to graduate school full-time, I have a wonderful husband, and I don’t take any nonsense from anyone. I don’t dramatize, and I don’t exaggerate. I’m trying to give you a sense of who I am so you won’t think that this is a plea for attention, or a jumping on the bandwagon about the recent TSA proposed boycott.

    I just don’t want another woman to have to go through the “patting down” because she didn’t know that her glad-rag would be a matter of national security.”
    Chalk up another ritual humiliation at the hands of the TSA, protecting us from terrorists by forcing women to remove their underwear napkins and groping their vaginas in public.

    When will this insanity end?

    TSA Hired Sex Offender Despite Prior Convictions Of Harassment and Stalking

    TSA Worker Accused Of Assault Had Prior Record

    WSBTV 2
    Thursday, November 25, 2010

    Channel 2 Action News has learned a TSA security worker accused of abducting and sexually assaulting a woman had previously been convicted of misdemeanor harassment and stalking.

    Randall King remains hospitalized following a suicide attempt. Police said last Wednesday, King agreed to drive a woman home from the airport. Instead, investigators said King took her to a MARTA station parking lot and placed novelty handcuffs on her.

    Channel 2 Action News reporter Tom Regan reviewed court records from Clinton County, Pennsylvania. According to the records, King was charged with nine offenses of harassment and stalking by communication in January 2001. A court clerk told Regan that King pleaded guilty and spent three months in jail for skipping a court appearance.

    TSA has a long list of “disqualifying offenses” for employment at the federal agency that operates airport security. Those offenses include felonies, violent crimes, theft, and crimes involving security and transportation. Regan checked the list and found that it did not include misdemeanor offenses of harassing and stalking

    Brent Brown, a security expert who runs a company in Smyrna, told Regan that he believes a job candidate with a record of stalking should not be hired by the TSA.“This type of misdemeanor, this is harassment. You’re putting a person in a public area. I would say that would disqualify him for employment,” said Brown.

    Daily Kos Obamanoids: TSA Just Following Orders When They Sexually Molest Your Child

    Prison Planet
    Thursday, November 25, 2010

    Comment: The establishment left has been in a fever over the past two days attempting to poo-poo* concerns about two things that happened under the Bush administration – 9/11 and the TSA, running defense for the status quo no matter who is in charge as per usual. The Daily Kos says that TSA goons are just following orders when they sexually molest your child, therefore they are not to blame. Even their own readers go off big style in reaction to this putrid and pathetic defense of the indefensible.

    There’s a lot been said — and left to say — about the new TSA screening procedures. The right is, predictably, discovering a hitherto-unmentioned concern for civil liberties and using the issue to attack Obama. Equally predictably, they’re pushing privatization, as if it’s who issues the paychecks and not what the policy is that matters. But while many of the objections from the right are disingenuous at best, there are legitimate questions, such as those about whether naked pictures and enhanced groping make us safer or are security theater and an expansion of the police state.

    But as you travel this holiday week, here’s something to keep in mind: The TSA screener monitoring the scanners, or touching your body, did not make the policy. They’re just doing their job, and not one they have a lot of control over.

    Check out the comments from Daily Kos’ own readers.

    Body Scanners: The Terrorists Have Won

    Andrew Steele
    America 20xy
    Nov 26, 2010

    There was no greater reflection of the political leadership we live under than seeing Hillary Clinton this week, when asked about the*new pat-downs, give some dry mad-lib, fill-in-the-blank style statement attempting to justify herding innocent Americans through radiation baths to see through their clothes, or having their genitals groped. When asked if she would be willing to go through the same ordeal herself Clinton gave a smug smile– like a college student admitting that she never goes to a class in which the professor doesn’t keep attendance– and said not if Icould*avoid it, then eerily cackled.

    Since the body scanner story caught fire in the mainstream press countless horror stories have been coming out about a man’s urostomy bag being opened, a woman’s prosthetic breast being exposed, and …all personal humiliations in which the victims are given only the cynical reassurance by their government that their dignity is collateral damage in the fight against Al CIA-da.

    In the 21st Century the people of the world are being told by leaders who can hardly keep a straight face that they need to let glorified mall security guards in uniforms with the honorary title of “agents” dig around in their underpants before they get onto an airplane. This is because some guy who was helped onto a plane last Christmas by intelligence officials unsuccessfully tried to light his shorts on fire. There are no boundaries when it comes to the plebian flyers, we’re told, because out of those masses of business men, soccer moms, grandmas, and toddlers anyone is a potential terrorist…except for that influential minority who have already proven themselves to be mass murderers– they don’t have to be body scanned or groped at all.
    I’m talking about the people who have occupied the Presidency.

    Mark Hemingway recently wrote a story*proposing that*President Obama put himself and his family through the same enhanced pat-downs that his own family was forced to go through when they went to the airport.No doubt, if the innocent people Obama murdered were killed by commercial airlines instead of predator drones, and if he wore a turban and spoke to the nation from a cave instead of the Oval Office, he would be considered the world’s number one terrorist. (That is, of course, if you first believe that the original guy in the cave who caused three skyscrapers to fall because of fire was actually the one who managed to “pull it” off). Certainly, in such a scenario Obama’s family still wouldn’t have to endure a pat-down or be body scanned, and would likely be flown to safety, because the United States has been known to help the families of alleged terrorist masterminds escape the country in the aftermath of big attacks before.

    Obama joked last year about using instruments of mass murder– predator drones– while speaking at the annual Correspondents Association Dinner. Bush event.* These are the people causing Americans pain…not underwears bombs or printer cartridges… because even if you still manage*to somehow*believe the “official story” of 9/11 and the “official stories” of everything else they blame on people with hard to pronounce names, it is the pursuit of corporate American empire that began the war of terror from which such events arose, and the American people have been chess pieces in this war as far back as almost everyone alive now can remember.

    Even if you can’t see the obvious– that the body scanners are a way to train the modernized world to submit to big government and for Michael Chertoff to make a profit– then settle on this simpler reality– that the body scanners are a lazy, police state reaction to the hornet nests that the military industrial complex, which all modern presidents have represented, kicked over in their pursuit of profit and personal power. Because of these few peoples’ crimes and not because of their own Americans are being asked to submit. From the actions of people like Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr., and Obama an old man found himself humiliated and covered in urine, people who were molested as children now have to avoid flying for fear of terrifying memories coming back to them from being touched or leered at, and mothers have to explain to their children that while nobody else is allowed to touch their privates, people in uniform are because all the stuff they learned in school about America and the “Home of the Free” is now just a silly myth– like Santa Clause or the Easter Bunny.

    When people say that the body scanners are an indication that the terrorists have won, they have no idea how true that statement is.

    At TSA, the hits just keep on coming

    Bobb Barr
    Nov 26, 2010

    Perhaps the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) recently has received reliable intelligence that al Qaeda has been busy recruiting cancer survivors as sleeper terrorists, and grade-school students travelling with their parents as suicide bombers.* Or maybe TSA’s leaders recently reminded the agency’s many thousands of security screeners that using common sense when deciding which airline passengers to subject to the most intrusive and demeaning security check possible, would result in an unsatisfactory rating on their next performance evaluation.

    Whatever the reason, and despite a rising tide of criticism and resistance from the travelling public, the parade of *horror stories emanating from airport security check points continues.

    A North Carolina breast cancer survivor was forced to remove her prosthesis during a “pat-down.” *At Detroit Metropolitan Airport a male bladder cancer survivor was forced to remove his urostomy bag, during his screening by a TSA agent so devoid of decency that the passenger wound up covered in his own urine.

    In Salt Lake City, a young boy was pulled aside for “secondary screening.” *A video of the incident shows a TSA worker patting down the shirtless child while his father stands behind him watching.

    The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) recently has documented more than 900 complaints from passengers, whose experiences at the hands of TSA left them feeling violated and humiliated by screeners who went too far in carrying out their duties.

    TSA Tyranny: ACLU Receives Over 900 Complaints In One Month

    Travelers detail purposeful humiliation and violation at hands of federal government

    Steve Watson
    Friday, Nov 26th, 2010

    The American Civil Liberties Union has received a huge wave of complaints within the last month following the TSA security crack down at airports, contradicting the establishment media spin that naked body scanners and invasive pat-downs are being meekly accepted by a compliant public.

    “These complaints came from men, women and children who reported feeling humiliated and traumatized by these searches, and, in some cases, comparing their psychological impact to sexual assaults.” the ACLU website notes.

    It states that recurring themes in the hundreds of reports they have received include:

    • The searches are extremely invasive

    • Many travelers are reporting intense feelings of violation and humiliation

    • Some report being physically hurt by the searches

    • Some feel their searches are punitive

    • Reports of gawking by agents

    • Reports of seemingly unnecessary repeated touching of intimate areas

    • Many vow not to fly any more

    • Any traveler may be forced to undergo one of these searches

    Following a Freedom of Information request it was recently revealed that last year that there were over 600 formal complaints about the use of the naked body scanner devices in airports. Judging from the number of complaints to the ACLU in the last month alone, that number has clearly increased exponentially as the devices, in addition to the new pat-down procedure, have become more widespread.

    Comments from passengers subjected to excessive experiences at the hands of the TSA have been published by the ACLU.

    “The TSA agent used her hands to feel under and between my breasts,” said one woman. “She then rammed her hand up into my crotch until it jammed into my pubic bone.”

    Another woman described the TSA groping as more invasive than her monthly breast exam with her GP:

    “She ran her hands all the way up and into my crotch with force,” the woman said. “When she finished with the front she did the same with my back to the point that she, what I would call groped, my butt. She went under, in between, and on my breast.”

    A New York man described how he was publicly humiliated by TSA agents simply for refusing to go through a scanner:

    “Three or four TSA employees came over, basically surrounded me and very loudly proclaimed what a jerk I was for refusing the scan,” he said. “The ’supervisor’ then spent 15 minutes examining every part of my body – it was intrusive, humiliating and without a shadow of a doubt, intended to punish me for electing to not be irradiated.”

    The full list of passenger quotations provided by the ACLU can be read at the foot of this article.

    Over the past couple of days several corporate media outlets have been running with stories of how the “opt out” protest against the TSA procedures failed to materialize, insinuating that Americans have absolutely no problems with enhanced security measures.

    The Boston Herald even suggested that the TSA had been “handed a victory”.

    However, it soon emerged that the TSA turned off many of its naked body scanners across the country, and scaled back the invasive searches for one day in a hastily crafted PR stunt to mute the impact of the protest.

    This move came despite the fact that a TSA administrative directive stated that “Opt-Outters” should be considered “domestic extremists”.

    In this sense the protest represented a resounding victory for the majority now opposed to TSA tyranny, proving that direct action can influence the government’s actions.

    The organisers of the protest emphasized this point in a statement on their website, optoutday.com:

    Despite claims to the contrary, National Opt-Out Day was a rousing success. The entire point of the campaign was to raise awareness of the issues of privacy and aviation safety at TSA checkpoints, with the ultimate goal of influencing policy – to ask the question “are we really doing this right?” In that, the campaign was a success.

    It was always about getting attention to the issue, educating the public and putting pressure on to change the current procedures. With near daily headlines on the front page of newspapers and debates on television and radio news, the mission was accomplished – our voice was heard. By the time November 24 rolled around policy change had already been set in motion.
    This success highlights that EVERY day must be an opt-out day, only then will the TSA and the Department of Homeland Security be forced to change the unconstitutional procedures they wish to not only see normalised at airports, but in shopping malls, train stations and at sports events.

    As the Charlotte Observer reports today, even if airports are pressured to replace the TSA with privately contracted security companies, the TSA procedures will remain. You may not be barked at so loudly, however you will still be faced with a choice of having harmful ionising radiation fired at you to produce an image of your naked body, or being felt up by security personnel.

    The only way to defeat this tyranny and prevent it spreading to American streets is to follow the example of pilots and flight attendants and flat refuse to submit to it.

    More complaints to the ACLU:

    (These quotations have been lightly edited for clarity and length. Please be aware that due to the nature of these searches, these complaints often include graphic and sometimes disturbing language.)

    I opted out and was sexually molested in public. The method used to search my body was on par with a sexual massage by a stranger of the same sex. My penis was touched by a man. My anus and groin were rubbed by a man. My scalp was rubbed by the same person. How can this be acceptable…? These TSA agents are not qualified to deal with the psychological or ethical responsibility of this technology.

    - Joe in New MexicoThe pat down was so invasive that the woman doing it stuck her thumb through my jeans into my vagina, significantly more than simple resistance. She cupped each of my breasts, and ran her hand inside the waistband of my jeans…. I am upset, humilated, degraded and feel abused and criminal, when I am guilty of nothing.

    - Janet from Maryland [no form]I was visibly upset and when he started to fondle me inappropriately I yelled “I want to see your supervisor!” I asked (emphatically) if he was legally allowed to grab my genitals and the supervisor said he was. After fondling my genitals he groped my buttocks and told me to have a good flight.

    - Allen, NebraskaThe TSA agent used her hands to feel under and between my breasts. She then rammed her hand up into my crotch until it jammed into my pubic bone…. I was touched in the pubic region in between my labia…. She then moved her hand across my pubic region and down the inner part of my upper thigh to the floor. She repeated this procedure on the other side. I was shocked and broke into tears.

    - Mary in TexasIn and around breasts, both arms and legs, inside of legs, up to and including genitals (although I clenched the top of my thighs to limit the officer’s groping. Legs a second time, but from the rear (where her hand ran up my bum crack). Entire inside waistband of pants, both from the front and rear. Lifted up my hair (already in a ponytail), inside collar of shirt.

    - Sharon, MassachusettsShe ran her hands all the way up and into my crotch with force. To get graphic she could have felt if I had a feminine pad on. When she finished with the front she did the same with my back to the point that she, what I would call groped, my butt. She went under, in between, and on my breast. It was more intense than my monthly breast exam.

    - Paula M. Hamilton, Corydon, IndianaIn the 4 times she explored the area where my inner thigh met my crotch, she touched my labia each time, and one pass made contact with my clitoris, through 2 layers of clothing. I told her I felt humiliated, assaulted and abused…. In my work as a nurse, if I did what the TSA did against a patient’s will it would be considered assault and battery, and I did not see how the TSA should have different rules.

    - ChrisTSA says he is going to run the back of his hands on my buttocks and the front of his hands on my groin area…. He feels my bare arms and upper body including my balding scalp. …

    - Randy Spencer

    This is the most humiliating experience of my entire life. Having another male on his knees in front or behind me and feeling my private areas. And in full view of other passengers. It is a disgusting sight. I now can not sleep due to the thoughts of these agents on their knees feeling my private areas…. I have never, ever been so humiliated and will never, ever fly as long as this policy is in effect.

    - Ron Wilson, CaliforniaI have a history of having been raped. I was subjected to what I have since learned is a new TSA “enhanced pat down”…. I cried throughout the groping and have had intrusive thoughts since. It was humiliating. I felt powerless. It brought up emotion I could not explain.

    - Woman in her 40sI was shaking and crying the entire time. I was begging them to hurry up but they kept stopping and telling me to calm down. It is impossible to gain composure when a stranger has her hands in your underwear. A crowd gathered and watched and I never felt so humiliated. After it was over, I ran into the ladies’ room where I vomited and cried until my plane was boarding.

    - Melissa, MassachusettsI felt molested and sexually harrassed by their search.

    - Gweneth from CaliforniaI would not hesitate to say that I felt sexually assaulted by the agent.

    - Vince from KansasThis was, by far, the second most humiliating, and personally violating event in my life – the first being a date-rape in college.

    - M., ConnecticutThe entire affair was very punitive, and humiliating and time consuming and emotionally distressing. When I retrieved my things, I walked into the women’s restroom and wept.

    - Rosemary, VirginiaWhile in the “private room”… the agent inappropriately touched my genitalia (more than once) and made me feel incredibly uncomfortable. The agent also pulled down my shorts (about halfway), and I had to ask the agent to let me pull them back up. I was inappropriately touched, groped, rubbed, massaged and sexually harrassed. The procedure was violating, degrading, invasive and humiliating.

    - Scott in New MexicoSimply, I was sexually assaulted. My breasts were caressed in an almost amorous manner. And on the second canvassing of my groin, single-finger pressure was applied to my labia majora – the plane of which was near-broken, during which the agent made a wildly off-color remark.

    - B. from MarylandIn all of these years and the thousands of flights and millions of airlines miles I have never been so humiliated. If my choice is to risk having my genitalia spread all over the internet and my body exposed to unknown radiation or to have my testicles bounced and my buttocks stroked I will not fly any commercial airline…. our humanity and our dignity are being violated. I HAVE HAD ENOUGH!

    - Dennie from TexasI am concerned about the exposure and I am equally concerned that someone saw my precious daughter as if she were naked. I was then put through as well and was humiliated and felt as though I were in a peep show. Before this trip, I honestly felt the scanners were a good idea and a price to be paid for travelling – after living it first hand, I have to say it is flat out WRONG.

    - Celeste in Florida

    The TSA agent did not give me the option of going through the screening machine. She put her hand forcefully in between my legs and took it all the way up into my genital area. She then pressed on my breasts just like a doctor would during a breast exam. She then lifted my dress and put her hands inside of my leggings around my waist…. It was so rough that I felt the effects of it throughout the day.

    - Dina Pember, Kennesaw, Georgia

    3 or 4 TSA employees came over, basically surrounded me and very loudly proclaimed what a jerk I was for refusing the scan, were laughing at me, repeatedly berating me. The “supervisor” then spent 15 minutes examining every part of my body – it was intrusive, humiliating and without a shadow of a doubt, intended to punish me for electing to not be irradiated.

    - Aaron from New YorkI was wearing a sanitary napkin, so the agent notified her supervisor that I had a “foreign object.” It took about 10 minutes for her to walk 70 feet, speak with the supervisor, and return. Then she collected my carry-ons and began swabbing items in each of them. This process took a verrrrrry long time…. It was obvious to me that this was punitive for refusing the body scanner…. Finally I was told to remove my sanitary napkin. By the time I got to the gate the jetway had been removed and I was not able to board.

    - Suzy in CaliforniaGoing through the body scanner I said, “I want you to know I do not like this machine. ” the TSA agent asked me if I would like to opt out. I said “no, I don’t want you to touch me like that, I think it’s worse,” to which she snickered and replied, “well there’s a good chance we’re gonna do that anyway.” When I went through, she said I did need a pat down, and then she said she need to check my butt and rear crotch…. It was demeaning and indecent….

    - Tiffany from Nevada

    4 other male and female TSA agents watched while she ran her hands up and down my body, starting with my hair and then going all over, including my breasts and vaginal area.

    - A physician, Michigan

    My genitals were touched no less than 4 times with the index finger as the screener’s hand was slid up my leg until it could go no more into my crotch.

    - Marlene, CaliforniaThis new procedure was absolutely humiliating. She touched my limbs, my torso, my breasts, and rubbed my vagina with her fingers three separate times. I might have understood one rub. Three rubs was NOT acceptable. My pants were thin cotton…. As soon as I left the security area, I began to cry. My husband and I had spent one of the best weeks of our lives together for our honeymoon, and it was destroyed on the way home.

    - Tiff, North CarolinaThe female TSA agent did not advise me of an alternative and after she directed me through the scanner she conducted the “pat-down” WITHOUT my permission or WITHOUT warning that she would be making direct and forceful contact with my genitals FOUR times! I felt sexually violated and yet afraid to protest for fear that I would be put on some kind of no-fly list or miss my flight.

    - Kim, HawaiiThis was a very different and, I maintain, a deliberately abusive experience…. the agent not only felt the inside of my upper thighs but also probed my vagina three separate times. I made it to the end of the search, but then broke down…I cannot and will not allow this to happen to me again…. I continue to have nightmares about this experience.

    - Charlotte in California, female, 68I was with two strangers, one of whom now had both of her open palms moving slowly across virtually every part of my body. She barely moved them as she groped both of my breasts. And most disturbingly, her hands karate-chopped their way a full two inches up into my vagina through my slacks. She performed this maneuver not once, but twice: once from behind me, and then once again, standing/bending in front of me.

    - Alex, Washington state

    I will do everything in my power to drive rather than take any commercial flights if this is the new standard of TSA screening.

    - Max, North CarolinaMy daughter was forced to cancel her plans to join us for Thanksgiving because she did not want to subject her children to either the exposure to x-rays or the patdowns. We have cancelled our plans to fly north for Christmas and will drive instead.

    - Janet, FloridaThe TSA agent squeezes my thighs and runs his hand up until they touched my testicles on both of my legs. This was done in full view of everyone in line. This was very uncomfortable, humiliating and seemed very unnecessary. If given the choice, I will do everything in my power to drive rather than take any commercial flights if this is the new standard of TSA screening…. I do not feel safer. I feel violated….

    - Max, North Carolina

    When I asked the agent politely for her badge number, she said in a sharp, loud tone, “If you want to know my badge number you can talk to my supervisor!”

    - Heather from New York

    I have Type 1 Diabetes and wear a wireless insulin pump. TSA supervisors… informed me that since I have to wear a medical device, I will be subject to the enhanced pat-down every time I fly. It’s not okay with me to have a stranger grope my genitals once, much less 12-15 times per year. Please, please, please help those of us who are being given no choice in this matter.

    - Laura Seay, GeorgiaI didn’t set off any alarms, apparently I was searched because I was wearing a ‘loose fitting shirt’. My T-Shirt was not tucked in.

    - AnonymousI walked through the xray machine… with flying colors. And out of the blue a women said I had to get a pat down.

    - Heather from IllinoisI was the only female in a crowd of men. Even though I was not next in line, I was called over to the body scanner. As I got closer to the scanner, I could clearly hear him say “got a cute one, some DD’s.” … I was appalled and decided at that point to “opt out” of the scanner…. I was then put through the pat down procedure which I only can only describe as sexual assault.
