    Just reported on the local Dallas NBC affiliate. TSA agents at Love Field (DAL) violated a woman who has a feeding tube and compromised immune system. Reportedly TSA agents viewed the feeding tube, handled the feeding tube and swabbed it, then that not being enough confiscated medically necessary food items from the lady.

    Complaint has been filed but who wants to bet that TSA Clerks didn't do anything wrong, at least according to TSA?

    edit to add:

    Story here:


    The report I heard on the Dallas NBC affiliate did state that TSA did handle the gastric tube and did swab it.

    If this is true I want to see the video, then the family needs to go after that (expletive deleted) from criminal, civil charges and last but not least practicing medicine without a license.

    Bob will lie like always does, and the AFS crowd will buy it hook line and sinker

    They only way they can fix this is by getting rid of 60,000 really stupid people.

    Unbelievable stupidity, day after day, ad nauseam.

    I disagree, the public should be able to demand accountability from TSA and its employees. It's time some TSA workers ended up in jail for assault or on other charges. Charge them and let a court sort out the facts.

    from the article:

    I'll bet they will. They don't want to help this story. This one they're hoping and praying has short legs.

    NBC (Ch 5 in DFW) posted this on there facebook page and has gotten more then a few nasty responses calling for heads. A link to TUG was posted referring to the master list of TSA crimes and abuses thread, so may get some people headed this way.


    Sorry cant access the FB link from where I'm at currently.

    Starting to make the rounds:

    While this was a travesty, with any kind of luck this will be the screening that broke the camel's back for the TSA.

    I'm sure Rugape will be along to tell us how TSA treats all people with respect and how TSA has a policy against such things.

    The person charged will be the victim or the family after the Pedosmurf becomes a lamp decoration out in the White Zone.

    I would hope so but I'm not holding my breath. I'll believe when the pelt is nailed to a post.

    Yeah and we have heard those lies from him before. He has no leg to stand on as he doesn't have the knowledge or training to know how much danger they put this person in. I do and if I did something Luke this my license would vaporize before the SHTF.

    ROFLMAO heck of a mental image... Touché and well played sir...Well played.

    I sent a link to Drudge. Would ask for others to do the same. Let us get the attention of folks over at Drudge.

    In other words, the TSA has done exactly what many of us have predicted for quite some time.

    It's the TSA, folks. They're going to cross that line EVERY TIME they think they can get away with it.

    That'd be why those people are TSA employees, and not out working a real job.

    If TSA employees were part of the Solid Waste Industry they wouldn't be the collectors.

    I don't think you could trust them even to decompose consistently.

    I would love to believe that Bob bangs his head against a wall every time something like this goes public, wondering how these people can screw up yet again. But something tells me he just shrugs his shoulders before he puts up his normal attempt at a defense.

    I don't think he can bang his head against a wall. He'd have to perform a rectal autoextraction first...
