    And Rugape and his TSA co-workers are proud how they are fighting the war on terror.

    Problem is TSA are the real terrorist!

    It's enough to gag a maggot.

    God only knows what happened to this woman in the past to cause that reaction - it must have been horrible, as was her having to stand there while that scum ran her hands over her body.

    Added to the Master List.

    Every time I try to comment at the Daily Mail, I get bounced from one error page to the next. Someone might want to tell them that it was a 3-year-old boy in a wheelchair, not an 8-year-old.

    The story is getting coverage, even picked up by the Washington, D.C., CBS affiliate:

    Video Captures Woman Sobbing Uncontrollably During TSA Pat Down

    I'm very sorry that this woman (or any man, woman, or child) was treated in such a disrespectful manner by TSA but glad that it was caught on video to help demonstrate exactly why people find the so called pat downs unacceptable.

    I wonder just who the sicko was that approved that policy?

    I'd like to say that it will make a dent, but we know it won't. I can hear the naysayers now:

    "Drama queen!"

    "Melodramatic!"

    "Quit your bawling."

    "Grow up."

    "What's the big deal?"

    "She clearly has 'issues'."

    Blah blah (expletive deleted) blah.

    We all know who that sicko was. John Pistole. And every one of his superiors, including every craven member of Congress who tolerates this. And, of course, the sicko in chief.
     
  11. Yes. But the naysayers should be reminded that this woman didn't complain, as far as we know. She stood there and took her punishment like a good sheep. For all we know she's horrified that the video is on the internet. This doesn't appear to be an Amy Alkon-style protest, it's someone who really does have "issues" like many many women (and people). Issues that the groping aggravates, issues that should not be dismissed, lest us non-issued people find ourselves with the exact same issues through no fault of our own.

    The worst part of the video to me is how the smurf walks off and leaves her there alone, looking like she's about to throw up. I would hope, had I been there, I would have gone over and offered her a sympathetic word.

    Yes, that's the worst part for me too. My heart just broke when I viewed her body language afterwards. Nobody offered her one bit of comfort. She not only felt violated, she felt alone. What the TSA does is inhumane but those who would pass this woman by without a second look are just as guilty in my opinion. How long would it take to stop and ask someone if they are ok and if there was something you could do for them?

    What do you expect from the type of people that they hire?

    they're Brits. They originated the practice of drawing and quartering.

    Which was usually after you'd been hanged (short-drop ---> strangled to death) and then cut down while you were still sufficiently alive to appreciate the rest of the spectacle.

    But they were nice chivalrous chaps, those Brits. They'd never think of doing this to a woman.

    Women were burned at the stake.

    The story is making it to Australia, and TSA is now blaming the victim ...
