Woman Singled out by the TSA, Cuffed to a Chair, Her Ticket Ripped up
Youtube ^ | GeorgeDonnelly

Posted on 11/10/2010 8:18:34 PM PST by citizenredstater9271

The TSA chose Meg McLain for special screening. They wanted her to go through the new porno-scanners. When she opted out, TSA agents raised an enormous ruckus. When she asked some question about what they planned to do to her, they flipped out. TSA agents yelled at her, handcuffed her to a chair, ripped up her ticket, called in 12 local Miami cops and finally escorted her out of the airport. Listen to her story as she told it on radio show Free Talk Live last night. Things are truly getting scary.

I support security measures but the way she's describing it makes me think it needs to stop or change.

do they have these scanners at MIA yet? Last I heard they didn’t, though I only use a couple of concourses there.

It is this regime's intention to cease our ability to travel and move about freely, I am convinced. You didn't hear this stuff happening to this extreme before Big Sis took over. Eventually, people will just stop traveling, which is what The One and his Puppet Master want.

Where I live we recently got rid of our highway photo radar cameras, and you can really tell the difference by the way idiots are driving now. So they obviously had the intended effect. BUT... it is also apparent that these tools, IN THE WRONG HANDS, are ultimately more dangerous to us in ways we can't even fathom yet. Therefore, I supported the removal of the cameras. Why give them more opportunities to track our movements?

You and me both. Quit flying in 2002. Broke down and bought a SUV in 2005 when I realized that almost nothing could get me back to flying.

I do not believe it. Tearing up her ticket is destruction of private property. 12 police to arrest her? Handcuffing her to a chair is almost kidnapping. If this is true then I think a thousand lawyers would be contacting her to sue TSA, MIA, the airlines, etc., etc., etc.

She was unconstitutionally detained...kidnapped, if you will. Ripping up her ticket violated the 4th.

TĂ sounds like the cơr of a beginning Civilian Defense Force or perhaps just Brown Shirts. I suppose they are all SEIU members. If so then the outfit is probably just about already to go into real action.

Al Qaeda has succeeded in taking away many of Americans’ freedoms. Its just that they are getting the US Gov’t to do it for them.

Its done in the name of “security” but in fact is done due to political correctness. We know who the enemies are - its just that it is not politically correct to do anything about it.

Being that I don’t see this as something the left would appreciate either I would call for a day that nobody uses the airport. Pick a hard day. Cost major and use different modes of transport if possible. Our government is out of control.

I think what we have is Stockholm Syndrome plaguing our national psyche. You’ve heard Michael Savage say liberalism is a mental disorder, he’s not being facetious, he is very serious. Liberalism is a break with reality... need examples? See Nancy Palosi, Chris Matthews and our fearless leader, BO... liberalism is feeding into this Stockholm Syndrome to such a degree that we are seeing Nazi style antics being foisted on normal everyday citizens by folks who’s brain waves are on the same level as the terrorists who would do us all harm...

If you recall, that was a big part of Hillarycare back in 1993. You couldn’t travel outside of our “medical zone” without registering your itinerary with the Feds and getting permission. We are going to get this sort of thing no matter what. I don’t think Congress can really affect it much any more. It is in the Courts’ hands now and too many judges have been appointed to be revolutionary legislators. Everything has to go to the USSC and that docket will be overwhelmed pretty soon. I wonder how seriously the Left, especially the Ayres and/or Chicago Left has considered that in reality there is only one human being standing in the way of total control- one Supreme Court Justice. If Thomas or Scalia or Roberts should have a heart attack, or an unfortunate accident...

Yes, she certainly was. The TSA appears completely sadistic in the way they treated this poor young woman. They also purposely used her as an example in public to scare the hell out of anybody else who dare question having a naked picture taken of them or being touched on their genitals by some creepy half-witted pervert. They publicly humiliated her to break her spirit and that of anybody who has a problem with their Nazi-like behavior.

How does this make these TSA agents any different then any common terrorist who uses fear and intimidation to get their way?

I hope she sues.

If they keep this up it will destroy anything left of airline travel and send all the carriers into bankruptcy.

It is kidnapping and it is false imprisonment. It is a major portion of what we went to war about in the 1770s. Just wait until these porn machines start showing up in courthouses and schools. THEY WILL.The point is humiliation of the citizenry in the service of converting citizens into subjects and trained cattle.

She would be me except I don’t think it is in me to be peaceful or cooperative with sexual aggressors.

I can’t let anyone sexually molest me for any rationalization. I am the one who decides to touches my twat and how they touch my body and when they touch my body - not Jan the Man. Good grief!

It already sounds like even the pilots and flight attendants are also complaining about the scanners and groping. I wonder what the airlines themselves think about all this. More of these stories will only hurt their already dwindling bottom line if more people opt out of air travel because of this nonsense.

I’m beginning to wonder about “the tiny amount of radiation” involved. Yeah, it’s only some small fraction of an x-ray...but how many people get 1,000 x-rays during their lifetime? And I know that some (some) of these machines use non-ionizing radiation, but the jury is out on that too.

Furthermore, airline personnel are ALREADY exposed to more radiation than the general public, because of flying above most of the atmosphere - especially in over-the-pole flights, where the magnetic field dips down.

You can find plenty of scientists who will state that there is NO zero-risk dosage of radiation.

I took the plunge and bought an RV. I profile Muslims, and if I find one, they cant ride with me. Its just that simple.

The waiting lines to get into my RV are less than a minute. Because of my High-Tech screening process, my guests can carry weapons of all types. Even knives, and I never worry about getting beheaded. My method has proved to be 100 percent effective.

Even the Flying Imams could not get into my RV. My security is that tight. In fact, Imam Obama could not get into my RV.

The typical TSA person has probably never been in a position of power before in their lives. It goes to their heads. I’ve seen their arrogant and overbearing behavior at the airport myself.

They have no sympathy for the traveler. It’s all about them. I guess if you “opt out,” it’s a challenge to their authority and they feel obligated to teach you a lesson. That’s what it sounds like, anyway.

You got to do what you got to do. I go to see my parents 4-5 times a year in Florida from Memphis. It is a 10 hour drive but I still prefer it to flying. And I used to fly 5-6 times a year from 1992-2002. Quit cold turkey after I used up my flight miles in June, 2002.

The young lady said that the law enforcement and TSA’s response to her questions was that it “wasn't about her and not about them; but about the greater good.”

That, people, is a scary statement. Resist, resist, resist I say.

The big difference is that TSAPersons are on our payroll. At least the terrorists pay their own salaries (IRSPersons excepted, of course).
