24. No one said a thing about sexual assault.
Edited on Sat Oct-17-09 03:06 PM by merh
Her rights were violated. The constitution is pretty clear about unreasonable search and seizure. To require any citizen, whether it be a man or a woman, to unzip their pants/slacks/jeans and expose themselves in public, in the presence of the opposite sex, is a violation of the civil rights of that citizen.

That happened on camera and is so sensitive, even the TSA blurred the image. The blurred image is proof that the TSA considered the viewing in public to be unfair to the woman.

I dislike any authority figure or person holding a job of responsibility who abuses that position to violate another's civil rights and who refuses to use compassion when performing their job.

Simple compassion and a lot of common sense would have had this woman through the process in a matter of minutes without the need to blog.

I have a problem with TSA claiming transparency when there is time missing, when the video is not complete and when they have to blur images.

Edited to add: I find it most comical that you complain about the woman exaggerating in her blog as you exaggerate and distort the truth in your posts.

Most comical indeed.
