    Just-don't-fly is not the right answer to this outrage. Spread the video and the petition.

    I don't think anyone deserves this treatment. I think deciding whether to fly or not to fly is a personal decision each person has to make for themselves. For myself I do know that I would never offer to pull my pants down in order to prove to the TSA I wasn't hiding something.

    Given the direction TSA is going why do you think you would have the choice of pulling your pants down or not?

    TSA is out of control. The only means available is for Congress to get off their lazy asses and do something to reign in this agency or for us to avoid all contact with TSA which means no flying commercial, walking away from trains, buses, or other modes of transportation if needed.

    Some people fly for work.
    I judge her not for showing those imbeciles --"ma'am, please don't"-- nada.
    Protest I admire includes the guys wearing kilts who go commando.

    Which is why we will win this "one grope at a time".

    I just wouldn't get on the plane. I'd find another way to get where I needed to go. I'm retired - got lots of time. The TSA could threaten me with a fine, being arrested, whatever and I would not allow them to do what they did to this woman. Does my attitude stop me from convenient travel? It sure does but my husband didn't spend 20+ years in the Marine Corps for me to give up my Constitutional rights.

    Not flying is the BEST answer to this outrage.

    When the airlines are finally about to go belly up or shrink to nothingness, they will put an end to this stupity, and that's probably the only way it will ever end. It will not end without severe economic pressure on the airlines because the airlines love the financial arrangement of the current security scheme: It shifts a large cost center (screening) to the government, limiting airlines' direct out-of-pocket costs to what they were paying for screening sometime around 2002.

    Airlines today are only reporting profits because they are SHRINKING, reducing schedules and expenses to match reduced demand.

    Airline traffic has stangnated the last two years while rail & auto traffic has soared. Everyone should be contributing to that trend.

    As long as you keep flying, you are contributing funding to both the airlines and the TSA.

    Becky could be right on the mark here, namely that the "protrusion" was simply a lie to enable them to abuse this person.

    Becky Akers @ LRC Blog: What a Way To Start the Day!


    Travis Holte continues his campaign to nauseate me. Here a victim describes her sexual assault and humiliation at the TSA's literal hands. These sadists repeatedly lied that they had found an "abnormality" between the passenger's legs, then used that as an excuse to digitally rape and publicly shame her. But as the lady herself says, "I am a normal woman, as my husband and OB-Gyn will testify."​

    Maggie Buckenmayer's abuse is a sick game of domination between the TSA and its prey. When will we rise against these unspeakable deviants? "But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government..."

    Amy Alkon chimes in: Disgusting Abuse Of 58-Year-Old Woman By TSA

    This is America? The America you want to live in? Watch what happened to San Diego's Maggie Buckenmeyer at the TSA checkpoint in Birmingham, Alabama, and speak out about it.

    As she says, "This needs to be stopped. Why the TSA is allowed to emotionally and sexually abuse passengers...I don't get it. If some stranger did to me what one of these TSA agents did, that stranger would be convicted of sexual assault and sent to prison" ...

    Hitting the mainstream media, this from an Alabama station ...

    CBS 42: Woman says TSA assaulted her at Shuttlesworth Int'l

    A San Diego woman claims she was sexually assaulted by TSA agents during a routine screening at Birmingham Shuttlesworth International Airport.

    Maggie Buckenmayer, 58, was going through security November 1st when her artificial knee set off a metal detector. As is procedure, TSA preformed a pat down search.

    "The female assistant began her pat down and was very, very, extremely, extremely invasive with her hand pressure between between my thighs, between my legs, on my female body parts," Buckenmayer said.

    Buckenmayer says she was told a protrusion was discovered between her legs and that she would have to go through another pat down.

    "This one is so invasive, so uncomfortable, so painful that I would consider it sexual assault," she said.

  11. Glad media is picking it up. I sent the CBS link to Drudge.

    I don't see it going anywhere. The TSA is going to claim she's lying because she claims they used a hand-held metal detector, and the TSA threw all of those in the trash back in 2010 - or so various TSA employees have claimed.
