Skip to comments.TSA PAT DOWN & GROPPING of 10 YEAR OLD GIRL
Posted on 01/03/2016 11:04:45 AM PST by BBell
Maybe I'm over reacting ? I would have no problem submitting myself for a pat down, I support a high level of security, but I feel invasive touching of Children crosses the line, unless credible evidence exists.
On 12/30/15 TSA ordered a full Pat Down of my 10 year old daughter & detained us for over an hour (see YouTube video of the Pat Down, the link is below)
TSA policy states PAT Downs of children under 12 should be method of last resort.
In my 10 yr old daughter's case, after clearing metal detector, a forgotten Capri Sun juice pack was found in her hand bag by x-ray & agent swabbed bag resulting in a false positive.
Rather than retesting bag or alternate screening methods, my daughter was immediately ordered to submit to a full body Pat Down, and I was told I could not record the process. Luckily I knew the law regarding video recording and agent subsequently allowed me to record.
TSA policy states children under 12 will receive a "Modified Pat Down" yet my 10 year old received a full adult pat down. I feel it was intrusive, invasive, and unnecessary.
TSA made it clear I would be arrested if I resisted the search of my daughter.
TSA attempted to persuade me to allow my daughter into a private room, I felt safer with the general public surrounding us and refused several efforts to whisk us away.
TSA agent repeatedly touched my daughters buttocks and other sensitive areas with her palm & fingers not back of hand.
I don't know about you but I fell safer knowing the TSA is being so vigilant.sarc
I don’t think I’d trust any source that spells “gropping”.
Because that isn’t a word. Only a mentally challenged drunk blogger would try to spell “groping” like that.
If there was ever was a job custom-made for perverts, this would be it. We could probably save a lot of money and get them to work for free. I’m certain that they would be very thorough...
What? We are no longer allowed to misspell words? Especially we are under duress? Fine. Turn the Internet off when you leave.
She got the Joe Biden pat-down
what have we come to in this society to let this happen
Profiling is the way to go. But in this case I suspect the author’s truculence had a lot to do with how long it took.
At some point you have to say, “Arrest Me” the publicity might get viral, and the TSA agent will be transferred to a desk job scanning cookbooks
The bad part is they are not watching.
They are just being jerks
Perverts gravitate to this kind of work. Paedophiles love to become youth ministers or Boy Scout Leaders or work anywhere where they deal with a bunch of kids. Airports would attract all sorts.
Folks, go to your local airport and actually see and hear TSA agents in action. Not exactly rockets scientists, are they?
I'm stuned. I thought at least it would involve a beeber-like device.
They profile and they have some other unintrusive methods that are apparently 100%.
I’m sorry but that’s grounds in my book,to start a fuoo blwn Irish Donybrook; THEN & THERE!
Maybe he’s a bloger.
Your posts are usually good. That one sucked. Seriously. Her 10 year old daughter was essentially sexually molested by the TSA and you go Grammar Nazi?! Wow.
I saw the video. It registered a so-what on my give-a-crap meter. They patted her down all right. One can make the usual arguments that they should be profiling rather than following some strict rules-based process if some kid leaves a drink in their bag or something. The whole thing is rather silly. But as far as this particular pat down it seemed like the agents did their usual deal to me.
A few years ago my wife was recovering from brain surgery and had just got out of the ReHab hospital and it was still hard for her to walk, we was flying home for Christmas and she needed a wheel chair to make it through the airport. What the TSA put her through was outrageous and it was all I could do to keep my mouth shut so we could go and see the Grandkids. That was six years ago and we haven’t set foot on a plane since, nor will I until the useless gang of thugs call the TSA is disbanded,
I said it before and I say it again. If the flying public was to band together and do just a two week boycott of flying the airlines would be brought to their knees and the Feds would have no choice, but at least clean up the TSA and put a much needs leash on what is clearly and out of control agency.
I know it won’t happen as there isn’t enough back bone collectively among the flying to stiffen and earthworm.
So keep flying, but stop your bitching and lay back and enjoy the molestation.
