    The TSA perverts at LAX are doing a bang up job of abusing the American public!

    Reports in the Twitterverse today that the 17 year old grandniece of US Rep. Ralph Hall (TX) was literally stripped during a "routine" "pat down" during Security Circus. I imagine all proper procedures were followed.

    According to tweets, the 17 year-old female was en route to Australia for a trip with her church's youth group. Nothing says TSA is keeping us safe from terrorists better than exposing the breasts of an innocent teen.

    Apparently since it was a member of Congress the TSA was able to locate the tapes and, AND make an apology. The rest of you can just sit back and take whatever these asshats dish out.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
  2. It's her own fault, apparently, for wearing a loose fitting dress. That's right. God forbid the girl wear something comfortable for the plane. Not the gropenfrau's fault for rubbing her pervy hands so hard on the girl's belly.

    Way to offer a dignified and respectful screening, (expletive deleted).

    Yup, they got right to it and blamed the victim -- classic abuser behavior.

    The tweets are public, so I've extracted all of them from the Twitchy article:

    Here is the video (news report, not the raw child porn from the checkpoint):


    I can't embed this video here, you have to use the link above, but TSA News could embed it. Here is the HTML embed code:

  6. Not the first time it happened, though. We had that poster, Holycowjenny, or something like that? She had the same thing happen with a kind of tube-top dress. Our whole country is a loss if we're expected to dress for battery when we all we want to do is get on a plane.

    Another flyer sued them for the same thing.

    The TSA pond scum only 'fessed up because this girl has a very high-profile uncle.

    When they're not exposing breasts, they're fondling them. We quit flying after my wife was groped UNDER her bra.

    The woman who was exposed by TSA in MCO posted her story here and I wrote it up with her help for TSA News. TSA blamed her for wearing a loose fitting dress and her complaint never went anywhere.

    Ach, der shoo ist on der ozer foot! No sympathy. As a federal politico, he brought that onto her.

    I might change my stance if he introduces the bill to dismantle TSA and prosecute every one of them, but I am not holding my breath.
  11. Oh yeah, the one where the male screeners were standing around laughing, and one of said assclowns told the young woman he was going to go watch the video? Didn't she get a settlement that wouldn't even make a wallet bulge?

    Only $10K and they ridiculed her when they settled.

    Internal Investigation?-what a joke. Nothing will turn, nothing will happen and nothing will change. except the smurf getting patted on the back and promoted.

    hmm Rep Ralph Halls office is not to far from me...may have to make a trip. I think sexual assault of child would be a appropriate charges for the smurfs involved, there supervisors and managers.

    JD Journal: TSA Earns Congressman’s Ire after Exposing his Grand-Niece’s Breasts

    We all know the TSA goes too far. Who hasn’t heard a story about some elderly man having his walker probed for explosives or some “suspicious looking” teen invasively searched? When it happens to the relative of a politician, they finally get put in their place. Or that’s the hope ... Nothing like an apology that minimizes its own faults (“two years ago”)!
