Usually, you pay double for that kind of action, Cotton.

The episode left deForest in a state of "humiliation, rage, and frustration," according to the report

I bet, no one like's being left black-n-blue balled.

You're the one that chose to fly commercial. Now moo like a good cow and get on the damned airplane.

You can get that for free now?!?

Minorities and poor people get 'stop and frisk" and random strip searches in public.

Now rich folk get to experience the same thing.

Why do we put up with this shiat? There can't really be that many docile, lobotomized sacks of meat walking around this country, can there?

Y'know, I remember Ghastly joking about how the TSA grope-downs might make him spontaneously say things like "now spit in my mouth and call me a whore", but I didn't expect the TSA to take it seriously.

As someone who opts out every time I travel, if I was assaulted by a TSA employee in the manner described in the article, then I would leave the airport in cuffs, and the TSA agent would be leaving in a stretcher. ITG all you want, but I'll take my chances with a federal grand jury, composed of taxpayers who are about as fed up as I am.

I make sure I bring my computer with me too, and I never check my luggage. Sometimes it takes two of them to bring everything over when I opt out.

This is genius. Allows them to cop a feeling, and if the person reacts out of pain, get a cop to arrest them for assault. Otherwise, you get to perform sexual acts while being paid AND protected.

Me too, and we'd both be in jail right now. For punching a guy who just slapped our fu*king balls. That is not right.

The TSA gets me closer to murder than anything else. Even Illinois Nazis.

You slapped my testicles!
 
Are you going to file a formal complaint?
 
No sirree, I was just wondering where the tip jar was, I haven't had the pleasure of such intimate contact since last June, when I found myself on a crowded F train.

I look forward to the day some TSA officer gets a couple of really good gropes and the media gets ahold of it. Pretty soon people will be suing left and right because they're now terrified of flying because the TSA brings back strong memories of getting molested in the past, and they want compensation.

If he does that, the screener gets a kick and a visit from the cops.

Screeners do not have free reign on things like that, it might be under the scope of security. And few judges will find testicle slapping under the purview of the security mandate.

TSA fails on ALL levels.

I recommend decommission, madams and sirs.

Thank you.

P.S. The recent mortally ill woman humiliated for sport is unacceptable business. That is all.

P.P.S. To lead by example is the most difficult road to follow, but it rides on the peaks of mountains, and the view is amazing. Let us ride on the mountains together.

Nothing's stopping you from earning enough money to own your own plane.
Then you don't have to be manhandled by morons anymore, in fact you would never have to think about those people and what they do or what happens to them ever again.

TSA is never going away, it's never going to get better by hiring better people. It's a big 'ol addition to the cage we've been building around ourselves.  The people who have their own planes or government passes to bypass the groping probably laugh their asses off at these stories.
 
2012-10-10 07:25:20 PM
I've never opted for a pat down but I wonder how they would deal with a trans person like myself if I chose to opt out. I can't imagine any scenario where the outcome is pleasant. I can see I either get a male screener to grope me innapropiatly while people wonder why that girl is getting a pat down by a dude. Or a female screener who thinks I'm hiding something in my pants and/or thinks I'm some kind of creep trying to get felt up by a lady. So my choices are either cancer, humilation, or being subjected to a full on strip search. isn't America grand...

Interesting choice of words.

I have passed the TSA many times and never been manhandled.

Are you expecting a revolution or something?

Most people, I suspect, would rather endure the body scans and pat downs than the potential (no matter how minute) of someone actually smuggling something dangerous onto the plane. I'm not saying I agree with the TSA or their operations, but that's probably the mindset of the average traveler.

Yeah, any mishandling of my nuts elicits a reflex "HULK SMASH" response from me. I'd definitely end up tasered and hogtied.
 
2012-10-10 07:33:23 PM
Much as every aspect of the TSA is asinine, my only experience, so far, has been "reasonable" (insofar as any warrantless search can be). My guy was polite, asked why I didn't choose the scanner (and commiserated that, if blasting tons of x-rays at people proves harmful, he'll probably be among the first to know) and told me everything he was going to do prior to doing it. The agents are normal, poorly-paid folks--the system and a-holes who put the whole thing together are the ones to blame.
 
2012-10-10 07:33:38 PM

Indubitably:
I have passed the TSA many times and never been manhandled.

Then you chose to get a dose of radiation from the scanner.
Also TFA happens to point out an incident where something happened to someone other than you. You might look into the whole phenomenon of things that happen to other people, because occasionally what happens to them happens to you.

"The obvious goal of the TSA is to make the pat-down embarrassing enough for the average passenger that the vast majority of people will choose high-tech humiliation over the low-tech [testicle] check," Goldberg concluded. If deForest's disturbing testimony is accurate, then Goldberg might just be right.


By definition, a terrorist organization. Perhaps someone can do a drone strike on these people.
 
2012-10-10 07:33:52 PM
Well,m if they weren't in the TSA they would be two bit criminals.

I feel safer.

Never go roundhouse, you turn your back for an instant. Always go straight kick. It's faster too. But if the guy is leaning down you might just use your knee.
