Why is the TSA being allowed to sexually abuse children and adults? Do you care? What if it happens to you or your loved ones?

May 21, 2012

According to an article in the Guardian, the following motto is displayed at the TSA’s air marshal training center: “Dominate. Intimidate. Control.” Why is there no outrage over this?

“They make our lives completely difficult...She’s not a threat to national security.”-- Dr. Joshua Frank, a Long Island pediatrician, who is the father of 7-year-old Dina, who has cerebral palsy and is developmentally disabled.

“Dominate. Intimidate. Control.”

Yet another child abused by TSA
http://tsanewsblog.com/2572/news/yet-another-child-abused-by-tsa/

"This three-year-old boy, in a cast, in a wheelchair, was singled out by the brilliant minds of the TSA to be manhandled, pawed, and swabbed, while his parents look on. The little boy is crying and asks his father to give him a hug. The TSA, as they always do, say, “Don’t touch your child.”"--by LISA SIMEONE on MARCH 19, 2012

"Lisa Belkin of Huffington Post writes about a letter she received from the mother of a 10-year-old boy who was groped by the TSA. In a private room, with his mother at his side. He has diabetes and wears an insulin pump.

He set off the machine and was told by officers that he could not touch or move the pump, his mother says, and that the only option was a pat-down of his genital area."

Passengers' Stories of Recent Travel
http://www.aclu.org/passengers-stories-recent-travel/

The ACLU maintains an ever-growing database of these indignities, many so graphic they're illegal to broadcast over public airwaves. Actions that violate FCC standards are embraced by the TSA. "Mary in Texas" reported:

"The TSA agent used her hands to feel under and between my b******. She then rammed her hand up into my c***** until it jammed into my pubic bone ... I was touched in the pubic region in between my l**** ... 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."

A woman named Chris said:

"In the four times she explored the area where my inner thigh met my crotch, she touched my l**** each time, and one pass made contact with my c*******, through two 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."

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
