    this to me is the scary part: the supervisors of the employees realized that this was a gross abuse of their authority and fired them; but the guy who was groped couldn't tell the difference between a "normal" pat down and outright sexual harassment.

    should airplane passengers who go through TSA have to assume that they might be sexually harassed when they are randomly pulled aside for a pat down?

    i was already against the system, so it goes without saying that i think it needs significant overhaul if we have come to this

    Because the victims had no choice but to be groped by this man the crime was illegal confinement because the stopping was not legitimate. Further the crime was forced sexual contact by a person in authority over the victim so that boarders on rape and certainly felony sexual misconduct and with these event being on video tape there need not be a complainant. Several counts of rape through coercion should get this guy and his helpers some jail time not reassigned.

    There are a lot of things that we have targets on our back for, but supporting another country is not one of them.
    Wait, your'e saying our Support of Israel hasn't caused a backlash from Islamic Countries ?

    Thats just willful ignorance.

    If I had to guess the passengers didn't realize that what was being done was against TSA rules and the law or were just too embarrassed to say anything

    If the purpose of same gender pat downs is to avoid groping, then indeed homosexuals should not be patting down their own gender. But that then means homosexuals would not be able to do their full job. I think the only solution is to not require gender specific pat downs and simply go after anyone caught groping on either gender.

    Apparently the palm forward is a rule not a law, because if the authorities watch someone commit a crime, there doesn't need to be a victim coming forward,... right? Hence no crime, but reason for dismissal. That's the best understanding I have. Clearly what he did didn't rise to the level of sexual assault, perhaps it's a misdemeanor and then has to have a victim, ???

    Do note that I recognize that there's a problem with pat-down rules when viewed regarding homosexuals. I just think the hysteria about trying to call it sexual assault needs to be dampered down.

    In the end you don't actually get a choice, just as you don't now. It is interesting that you have so little faith in your own gender.

    We brought the war there when after WWII we allowed our allies to set up the people in power.

There are tons of examples from the past that show how we brought the war to the middle east ourselves and while we sure don't deserve any attacks, to say our hands are clean is less than dishonest.
