Other info in the article indicates John A. Christina, 51, Simsbury, Conn. may have been joking.

It also states.... that Christina said he has a history of medical issues, including two metal implants, a colostomy bag and a fused right wrist.

I swear. If I had to suffer the indignity of having a groper feel up my colostomy bag, you can be damn sure it would be full.

(At least it would be when the assault started. After that... The TSA groper would be WEARING the contents of said colostomy bag.)

Tawianese Animators on the TSA (Totalitarian Sexual Assault) Experience

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBL3ux1o0tM&feature=player_embedded

TSA = “The Sexual Assault” (Yes, On Children)

Gee, this is all innocent and for our safety, right?

There aren’t any alleged perverts working for the TSA, are there?

Oh wait a second....

Winthrop Police were searching this week for 45-year old Sean Shanahan, most recently of 26 Shirley Street apartment #3 on five charges including two counts of statutory ****, two counts of enticing a child and one count of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14, after the alleged victim’s parents reported finding disturbing and explicit text messages on the child’s cell phone.

And where did Mr. Shanahan work?

Shanahan, a Transportation Security Administration employee at Logan Airport, has not appeared at his job in several days and has also not been back to his apartment on Shirley Street, following an initial search of his residence by police, which resulted in the confiscation of a computer and cell phone from his home.

What a wonderful screening process and background check you perform on your employees, Janet Napolitano!

And you wonder why I’m not going to allow my daughter to run your grope-gauntlet eh?

Wonder no more.

PS: Yes, I know that’s from earlier this year. The point stands - I submit that your “background checks” for employees are either non-existent or they suck.

Update: Sign the petition to stop invasive TSA screening! http://bit.ly/bxqrqv

Help spread the word about invasive TSA screening by visiting and sharing: http://bit.ly/c0n2FL

TRENTON— Senator Michael J. Doherty (R-Hunterdon, Warren) and Senator James Beach (D-Camden) today announced they will present resolutions to the Senate and Assembly calling on the U.S. Congress to end TSA screening procedures requiring full body scans and pat downs at U.S. airports Their action comes in response to widespread concerns over privacy and radiation, as well as reports of inappropriate conduct by TSA agents during the screening process.

“The pursuit of security should not force Americans to surrender their civil liberties or basic human dignity at a TSA checkpoint,” said Doherty. “Subjecting law-abiding American citizens to naked body scans and full body pat downs is intolerable, humiliating, vulnerable to abuse, and is fast becoming a disincentive to travel. Particularly concerning to us is the fact that physical searches result in children being touched in private areas of the body. Terrorists hate America because of the freedoms upon which this great nation was built. By implementing these screening measures, the TSA has already handed a victory to those who seek to destroy our freedoms.”

Hubby was at the grocery store tonight and noticed a youngish female in the self-checkout line. She was wearing a TSA uniform. A “red-neck” with two-day’s-worth of stubble on his face noticed her, too. He said, “How do you like all this groping of American citizens that goes along with your job?” Her response, “I don’t like doing it any more than they like having it done.” She left the place quickly. As in, hubby tried to find her in the parking lot to see her facial expression or to glean whatever he could from her demeanor. She was gone. I’ve never seen a TSA employee in our area. Never. But it’s interesting that hubby would have witnessed this today. Hubby thinks they want to shut down the airline industry for whatever reason.

In school they teach children to not let a stranger or anyone else touch them where they wear their bathing suit.

Now. the public schools are going to have to stop teaching about improperly placed hands and stranger danger.

Are we not allowing our children to think it is all right for a stranger to grab their crotches?

I think THEREIN you found the important pressure point.

These TSA people doing the work are flunkies who are merely carrying out the orders from on high, mere foot soldiers like low level Nazis, but otherwise in all respects, our fellow citizens also struggling and trying to make a buck. She probably was square when she said "I dont like it as much as they don't" in response to all the feeling up and lewd viewing, and therefore the pressure to put a stop to this government largesse nonsense must also come upon TSA from within. i.e. somehow, legally, and with constitutional protection and peacefully, the American People need to consider making it an uncomfortable and embarrassing proposition to the TSA officers as much as to the American People, so officers starting saying internally "you know boss, we gotta knock this stuff off".

I think you have to approach this bottom up (in this respect) as well as top down, which is where people like Limbaugh on a mass national basis come in, blogs, TV shows, etc. etc. come in.

Bottom line is, it emanates from Obama and his cabinet, and it should all end up back in his lap.

The TSA at Ohare must keep the white employees locked up in the back, because there aren’t many in the public areas.

I was wondering with the wife, “isn’t this some sort of reverse discrimination?” because it appears that 90% of their employees are black, which does not in any way shape or form represent the ethnic make up of this nation. I mean, is race a factor in getting a job there? Do they give extra points when hiring based on race? Or do white folks just not need jobs that bad that they don’t apply to TSA? Or is it just O’Hare that is like that? (we were picking up a relative, so we didn’t check out other airports).

Just curious.

Newark and Philly are like that too, almost all black.

I think it's an inner city jobs program. And I suspect many are muslims that are sympathetic with AlQaida, Osama and Obama.

I am now beginning to think it is social training. If a Black man or woman can put his hands on your crotch, whats wrong with taking your money? Spreading the wealth around?

This is desensitizing everyone to all moral boundaries of personal property. At least “My Junk” was off limits until Obama became president. He wants my wallet, and now my dignity.

I say F@#k them all, opt out and don't fly. We need to shut down the industry for a month or two until they get the god damn message.

Identity chips would be useless. You could cut them out of dead people, put them in your skin, walk right on the plane.

No, this program was designed in Washington for all the reasons we here hate it with a passion. It is intentionally taking away all dignity and moral boundaries. It makes the scumbag in the oval office feel like God.

The Jackass in the Oval office wants to be in charge of the doctor that puts his finger in our bodies, so having his inner city goons roll our testicles in their hands is normal to him. We are no more than maggots to these people in the white house. My body is off limits. If they want to fondle my jewels, they can come to my house and ring the door bell and ask nicely. I'll have a baseball bat waiting for them.

They have an “issue” with the easy mobility that the airlines offer. Mobility of the subject population is always a target of the left. They need their subjects to stay in one place. That is why they are always trying to eliminate private cars in favor of public transportation. On buses and trains then can keep a record of where people go and when. They can on airplanes, too, but the range of mobility is much too great for people who are not members of the ruling class.

Typical government SNAFU. Fewer air travelers means fewer TSA employees needed. Fewer air travelers means MORE unemployed. Fewer air travelers means airports will get shutdown.

Meanwhile, travelers will use buses and trains to go visit Grandma.

I’m thinking of getting a card printed up to hand to a TSA sexual predator (should I ever fly again):”WARNING: The bearer of this card has his hands registered with the (insert city, state) Police Fepartment as “deadly weapons”. APPROACH WITH CAUTION. REACTION TO PROVOCATION WILL CAUSE DEATH.” The sign it R. U. Nutz, Police Chief

Actually, that pretty much reflects the demographic of ALL federal employees, and yes, it does “prove” discrimination. In my experience, most TSA mouth-breathers are black females. . .why is that?

The question needs to be asked: what person with a shred of self-respect and dignity would want that job. . .than the petty tyrant.

If you said TSA employees were federal employees you would be correct. And merely being employed by a federal agency does not make them "officers."

Moreover, referring to them as “officers” in the context of this situation/thread reflects you considered them law enforcement officers, which they are not. To expand further, if you are referring to them as “officers” in the context of serving as an officer in a corporation or agency, you are mistaken, they are neither.

They are simply federal employees. Nothing more. Nothing less (and it is hard to imagine anything less than being a TSA crotch-groper and bum-sniffer).
