  • TSA Sexual Assault Redux

    World News Bureau ^ | April 25, 2017 | Gina Miller
    Back in February, I wrote a report on being heavily groped between my legs by a woman with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. I labeled what she did to me sexual assault, to which some people took offense in the comment sections where the column was posted. However, what she did fits the definition of sexual assault as provided by the United States Department of Justice. You can nit-pick definition and intent all you like and can call it what you will, but I will call a spade a spade, and just...

    Colorado's six-time Olympic gold medal winning swimmer Amy Van Dyken-Rouen says agents with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) humiliated her. She took to social media Sunday to detail her experience getting through security at Denver International Airport. She said agents made her go through a full body search even though she has Pre check. "They go around your breasts, they basically go under your butt and the just grab things, not grab, they touch things that are not appropriate and it's really embarrassing," said Van Dyken-Rouen. Van Dyken-Rouen said as much as she and husband Tom travel all over the...

    (Watch video at link) Father Kevin Payne is outraged after what he has deemed as a line-crossing two-minute pat down of his 10-year-old daughter Vendela by TSA at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport. The additional security was triggered by a juice pouch Vendela accidentally left in her carry-on bag. "It was excessive, it was invasive, I was pretty much boiling in my head," he told ABC News. (source) Payne recorded the pat down on his phone and uploaded the video to YouTube despite the fact that the TSA agent lied and told him that filming was not allowed (it absolutely...

    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...

    Denver International Airport authorities have released internal videotape of a former Transportation Security Administration screener at DIA allegedly groping male passengers last February. CBS4 obtained the redacted videotape Tuesday after filing a Colorado Open Records Act request for the tape. Authorities had refused to release the tape for months citing an ongoing criminal investigation. But in July the Denver district attorney said there would be no criminal charges in the case clearing the way for the release of the videotape. Although no criminal charges were filed, TSA fired screener Ty Spicha and his coworker Yasmeen Shafi after the alleged groping...

    A college student was sexually molested at LaGuardia Airport by a uniformed TSA agent who demanded she go into a bathroom with him after she got off a flight so she could be searched for a weapon, sources told The Post. The 22-year-old victim, who is Korean, had gotten off a Southwest Airlines flight from Salt Lake City around 8 p.m. Tuesday when the agent, identified as Maxie Oquendo, 40, approached her near the B4 gate of Terminal B. Ogendo then asked her to follow him so she could be searched to see if she was carrying a knife or...

    The Transportation Security Administration is getting an earful from angry Americans after the agencys spokeswoman tweeted a photo of the contents of a travelers suitcase $75,000 in cash for all the world to see on Tuesday. If you had $75,000, is this how youd transport it? Just asking! TSA @ RIC spotted this travelers preferred method, tweeted Lisa Farbstein, TSA spokeswoman at headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. The public reaction was fierce and included some of the following comments: So taxpayers are paying you to tweet photos of their luggage? image: http://www.wnd.com/files/2015/06/TSA_Lisa_Farbstein.png TSA_Lisa_Farbstein What other perfectly legal possessions...

    Over the course of my six years with the TSA, the leveraging of rules and surveillance tools to abuse passengers was a daily checkpoint occurrence. Has the TSA screener searching your luggage suddenly decided to share with you the finer points of official bag-search procedure just as your final boarding call is being announced? Theres a good chance that he or she just doesnt like you. Or in some cases, as weve seen, it may be that the screener finds you attractive and wants to use the TSA rules as an excuse to get his or her hands on you.

    By now, you may have heard the story about how two TSA agents at Denver International Airport were fired recently after it was revealed that they had worked out a scam by which one agent was able to grope and fondle the genitals of male passengers he found attractive. The plan involved him signalling to a colleague who was working the scanning computer. That agent would tell the computer that the individual being scanned was female, which apparently would set off an "anomaly" alert for the groin area, allowing the male TSA agent to conduct a "pat down" of that...

    A CBS4 investigation has learned that two Transportation Security Administration screeners at Denver International Airport have been fired after they were discovered manipulating passenger screening systems to allow a male TSA employee to fondle the genital areas of attractive male passengers. It happened roughly a dozen times, according to information gathered by CBS4. According to law enforcement reports obtained during the CBS4 investigation, a male TSA screener told a female colleague in 2014 that he "gropes" male passengers who come through the screening area at DIA. "He related that when a male he finds attractive comes to be screened by...

    I’m wondering whether the Transportation Security Administration is a valuable part of government. Not because the bureaucracy does a good job, but instead because it does so many foolish things that it helps convince more people to become libertarians.Consider these horror stories.o Confiscating a plastic hammer from a mentally retarded man.o Detaining a woman for carrying breast milk.o Hassling a woman for the unexplained red flag of having sequentially numbered checks.o Demanding that a handicapped 4-year old boy walk through a metal detector without his leg braces.o Putting an 8-year old cub scout on the no-fly list.oStopping a teenager from...

    Last Saturday, Kahler Nygard took a Spirit Airlines flight to Denver to visit with friends. When he departed from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, Transportation Security Administration agents patted him down and allowed him to board his flight. When the plane landed, he was singled out and ordered to exit before the other passengers. After he exited the aircraft, TSA agents approached Nygard and demanded that he go through an additional pat-down and a screening of his luggage for explosive materials. He had already arrived safely at his destination in Denver and simply wanted to leave the airport. After an argument,...

    You Blew It! TSA Literally Becomes a Joke TSA is the gold standard of airline security. John Pistole, director, TSA (Thousands Standing Around) Last week, roughly 2,000 people joined me for the annual FreedomFest conference in Las Vegas, and it offered an opportunity to poke fun at the TSA, a federal agency that seems to probe and prod a bit too aggressively even when encountering innocent and harmless passengers. We performed a modern-day version of Camelot as our featured entertainment during Saturday evenings gala and included a humorous scene of Sir Lancelot trying to arrive from France to aid...

    The wife of a man with prostate cancer posted on her blog a scathing assessment of how Transportation Security Administration agents treated her husband during a security checkpoint, explaining how one proclaimed loudly his state of incontinence while a second one grimaced and snickered. The woman who posted her story without giving names wrote that her husband battled prostate cancer and, as a result, now suffers from an overactive bladder and is forced to wear adult diapers, The Daily Mail reported. Usually when they fly, hes forced to explain his situation to security agents but that the...

    The Transport Security Administration has been criticized for humiliating a cancer survivor at a security checkpoint for wearing an incontinence pad. The man's wife has told that he suffers from OAB (overactive bladder) after a battle with prostate cancer and wears adult diapers for his condition. At an airport security checkpoint recently, he was forced to explain his situation multiple times to TSA officers, one of whom announced that he was wearing a diaper for the whole security line to hear, and then underwent an embarrassing back-room search. The man's wife, writing anonymously, described her husband's ordeal on the forum...

A Colorado woman, Jamelyn Steenhoek, was recently subjected to what she felt was the equivalent of a gynecological exam by TSA and filed a criminal complaint, only to have the Denver District Attorneys Officerefuse to prosecute. Cherry-picking DAs dont want to fight the feds. Now comes word of an incident this past Wednesday in which an award-winning Jewish author, Phyllis Chesler was singled out for special attention by TSA agents in JFK Airport.

    A Transportation Security Administration agent has been accused of threatening to shoot coworkers at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, according to multiple media reports. Jeno Vernelli Mouton, 35, has been arrested and charged with making a terroristic threat, a felony, the Houston Chronicle reported. According to the Associated Press, documents say Mouton told an airport supervisor on Jan. 25 that he wanted to vent instead of come back and shoot up the place. KPRC-TV reported that Mouton, who has worked at the airport for five years, was disgruntled with management and made the remark with coworkers and passengers nearby.

    My pained relationship with government security had started three years earlier. I had just returned to Chicago to finish my bachelors degree after a two-year stint in Florida. I needed a job to help pay my way through school, and the TSAs call-back was the first one I received. It was just a temporary thing, I told myselfside income for a year or two as I worked toward a degree in creative writing. It wasnt like a recession would come along and lock me into the job or anything. It was May 2007. I was living with a bohemian set...
