    Can someone point me to the link where the woman was being searched? Someone claims to have this video but I'd like to see it. I've only seen the excellent video where she reciprocated.

    I still want to know which "officer" she's accused of "resisting."

    I would venture the arresting LEO, since the TSOs do not have arrest/apprehension powers and that charge is usually reserved for those with LEO status. We have not seen the (at least, I have not seen) the video of the actual arrest at this point. There have been claims that the actual patdown was online, but I have also missed that if it is there.

    You know the TSA calls its minions "officers." Contrary to what Rugape claims, I don't believe Price touched an actual law enforcement officer, just the smurf.

    Resisting an officer is a fairly specific charge in most locales. We do not have arrest powers, therefore the resisting (in most cases based on my understanding of that particular charge) would occur only with a person with arrest powers, whether federal or local. The charge of battery on an officer is a bit more vague in its definition based on the locale. I am interested in finding out more about that particular charge as well. I may be wrong, and will freely admit it if it turns out to be the case. After reading more, I am not certain, it is listed as "resisting arrest without violence" which indicates that no physical confrontation took place, it could have simply been attmepting to leave after being informed of the charges or pending charges. I do not have enough information to give a firm read on that particular charge. Maybe we will be able to more clearly define it as more information comes out.

    It's this same Fox article that's already been posted in this thread. You see Price being groped, then you see her demonstrating to the chief smurf what was done to her:

    And again, contrary to what Rugape claims, there is no evidence or indication that Price touched a cop.

    Blah blah blah.

    Yukari Miyamae was arrested for the same thing, as you well know. So was Andrea Abbott. So was Phyllis Dintenfass.

    None of them touched a cop. They all tried to protect themselves from you blue-shirted thugs.

    Ya know, for as much as you kiss Pistole's (expletive deleted), I sure hope he gives you a promotion.

    I was merely pointing out that a resisting charge is not something that I would think would be applied in reference to a TSO. The battery charge, yes, the resisting indicates something else entirely - and resisting without violence indicates that no physical resistance with additional battery took place, leaving an attempt to depart after being informed as the most likely reason for that charge (again, based on previous experience with these types of charges and what I have read).

    By the way, it'll pop up on the automatic feed, but in the meantime, at TSA News:

    You're still dancing around the fact that you and your fellows call yourselves "officers"-it's even sewn into your shirts.

    That's because their shirts are part of a costume designed to evoke "authority," because their actions certainly don't.

    Off-topic, I know, but who in their right mind would choose the moniker "Rug Ape"?

    Tensing your arm when being handcuffed is considered resisting arrest in some locales. This is a bullsh*t charge thrown in to beef up an otherwise NOTHING arrest. That's the best they could do. It means she did nothing. If she had done something, the charges would have been assaulting a police officer. Face it Rugape, You and your fellow clerks are committing violence under duress on us and when it's done to you, you don't like it at all.

    I wonder if Rugape has ever groped someone at a checkpoint? Or does he leave the dirty work to others and just defend it?

    Well, the subject is the groping of people at checkpoints. I have an honest question.

    And we've seen from past exchanges (usually not involving you :) ) what this sort of question deteriorate into.

    Discuss the subject, not poster.
