    Get your hands out of our crotches, quit touching our private parts and feeling up our children. Stop violating basic human mores and our Constitution. Those are HUGE things. Then, and only then, can we talk about SMALL things, like making 4 year-old Suzy mind us. You're an adult, YOU should know better.

    Nobody has ever tried to paw at one of my children's private parts, and certainly not in front of me. Both children are trained in martial arts. They've been trained to start with a simple "No!" and follow it up with devastating blows to the bridge of the pervert's nose, floating ribs, crotch, eyes, ears, neck and other universally vulnerable targets.

    I'm a big fan of "A simple 'No!'", but when it doesn't work a child needs to have a second line of defense.

    The federal government's Thug Sexual Assault program is a direct assault on children's rights to be secure in their persons against unreasonable searches. It is a pedophile grooming program sponsored by our federal government, and no parent can in good conscience tell their child to "submit" to such depravity and retain any credibility as that child's protector or advocate.

    The vomitous mass that spawned this outrage is so fired. The American voter is waking up, just in time for the presidential election. Good-bye Holder, Napolitano and Pistole. May you spend the rest of your existence in the company of your own kind, never wielding power over another human being ever again.

    Elisabeth I would pay money to watch a kid disable a smurf in such a manner. It's only a matter of time and pistoles perverts aren't gonna have a leg to stand on, as it's self defense. Would only hope the injuries are permanently disabling( but alive to remember for eternity) to teach a lesson to the rest.

    A parent or guardian can not legally give consent for a child to be sexually assaulted, nor can a child legally give consent to sexual contact with an adult. The farce of TSA screenings will implode when a child defends him or her self with necessary force. I hate to see anyone injured, but TSA screeners are asking for it when they pat other people's children's buttocks and genitals.

    The reality of what the TSA is doing is hard to write and it's hard to read. It must be incredibly hard to say "I'm going to rub your son's genitals and buttocks now. Tell him he must stay still and endure this perversion without protest or else I'll start shouting aggressively and call over more thugs to help me terrorize you both into submission." No wonder the TSA uses all the euphenisms they do. Plain speaking would make their job at least twice as unpleasant.

    Well, they have been and are being arrested left and right, and, needless to say, self-defense is not being accepted as a defense:

    While I do NOT wish TSA bad touch on a child, I'm also curious to see what would happen when a child defends themselves from such. And the overkill knee jerk reaction TSA would come up in response.

    All air travelers must submit to being physically restrained with cuffs and blinded folded before we're searched?

    Oh, sorry. I didn't realize the discussion was only about children. I must've missed something earlier in the thread.

    And you know lots of people would be just fine with that.

    I moved several unacceptable comments to the moderation forum. If you can't stick to some semblance of facts & issues, you're better off not saying anything.

    My point is simply that children are a protected class.
