    Sexual assault in airports

    I don't think I'm gonna fly any more. This is really outrageous.

    But it costs too much in taxes to hire quality security personnel

    I'm kind of put out. I've flown almost 60k miles this year and NO ONE has fondled me. Not even once. And you would think that since airfares to some of the places I've had to go have been $800+, I should have been entitled to a little fondling before Delta bent me over and financially raped me.

    and here I was getting all excited because I thought this was going to be a Larry Craig thread.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    As a business traveler who hates being bogged down by infrequent travelers in TSA lines, and who enjoys having empty middle seats, I can only applaud your decision.

    I would have an easier time believing this if it wasn't on the Alex Jones show. From what I've seen of that guy, he's kind of a freak.

    Have you flown out of Denver lately? The woman in the video clip said she was okay getting from Austin to Denver, but the hassle came on the return trip.

    A friend of mine reports:
    This actually happened to me two weeks ago. I was flying home from
    Pittsburgh and they had just installed the new full body scanners. I did
    not know that I was supposed to empty my pants pockets before walking
    through them. So, when I went through, they pulled me aside because of the
    cash that I had in my front pants pocket and the wallet in my back pocket.
    Without saying a word to me, one of the TSA guys came up to me and put his
    hand in my back pocket and started to remove my wallet! I had a completely
    visceral reaction. Without thinking, I grabbed his hand that was in my
    pocket with my right hand and grabbed the front of his shirt with my left.
    Then I started to cuss him out (loudly) and push him back at the same time.

    Like I said, it was a completely visceral reaction, like if I caught
    somebody trying to pickpocket me. I do not know who was more startled, him
    or me. They did threaten to arrest me, but eventually let me go.

    All in all, it was a REALLY bad experience!
    Maybe the answer is to dress like a Muslim and carry a Koran; then TSA might leave you alone for fear of a profiling lawsuit from CAIR.

    Oh good grief, hyperbole much? First off, I've never had an interaction with TSA where a TSA officer put his/her hands on my body without asking first. In fact, they are trained to be scrupulous about it. They usually say something like,

    "Ma'am, I need to pat you down and check for something we saw on the machine. Do I have your permission to search you, or would you prefer a private search with a female officer?"

    I've been search 3 or 4 times this year, for a variety of reasons. I've gone through security checkpoints about 50 times or more, in almost every region of the U.S. Zero problems.

    If your "friend's" description was accurate, she should have asked for a supervisor, IMMEDIATELY, and reported the officer's behavior. There is almost always a supervisor on duty at any checkpoint.

    Sexual assault? Somebody needs to get out more.
    Don't work out, work in.
