Woman claimed U.S. airport security staff singled her out for her breasts

Posted on 11/25/2010 3:30:21 PM PST by HeartlandOfAmerica

A woman has complained that new US airport security measures saw her picked out for further screening because of her breasts.

Eliana Sutherland was flying from Orlando International Airport and said she felt violated by security workers.

It was the latest revelation to hit the Transportation Security Administration which imposed the checks and whose officers have been on the receiving end of a series of allegations.

Her claims come after thousands of Americans reacted furiously to the imposition of new airport security measures, including full body scans and hands-on patdowns.

And experiences like those described by Sutherland could see increased support for boycott of the TSA's controversial checks.

Sutherland told her local news station that two male TSA workers had been staring at her chest and singled her out for additional screening.

'It was pretty obvious. One of the guys that was staring me up and down was the one who pulled me over,' she said. 'Not a comfortable feeling.'

Just a couple of days ago a lady complained that a TSA employee followed her out to her car through the airport. Now this.

I think it's high time to start asking some SERIOUS questions of the TSA such as:

What kind of background checks does every TSA screener get?

What kind of background checks do the TSA bureaucrats get done on them.

Has the TSA and it's minions ever heard of the 4th amendment that requires PROBABLE CAUSE OF A CRIME HAVING BEEN COMMITTED TO SEARCH A PERSON?

EXACTLY what kind of justification and reports does a screener have to make for EVERY "suspicious" person that gets flagged for all this extra security.

Why don't they start racial profiling to try and target suspected terrorists instead of aiming their hatred at US citizens who have a .0000000000001% chance of being a terrorist.

Can't believe they're wasting all the resources on this ridiculous invasion of privacy.

Godspeed

PS: Oh. There's a pic of her though fuzzy at the source article.

lol. I must be more of a guy than you. All I did was try to determine whether her breasts were worth the special treatment?

I didn't see anything spectacular.

Don't understand why this is being allowed. I was my thought when Barry was running for prez, also. And for everything else he has his fingerprints on.

I just don't know how they can justify this in any way, shape or form.

The people they're searching are not criminals and the odds of them being terrorists are so astronomically small that it's almost 0.

So they search a million people like this. And they don't find anything? So start on the next million.

I'd love to know how much all this extra security is costing us per hour.

And, when you think of it, Zero has done more harm to the United States in a shorter period of time than any other foreign-born terrorists.

It is zero, they haven't caught any.

They might have to plant one soon though for some credibility.

That TSA elected to treat everyone as a terrorist until they proved themselves IS to invoke public terrorism - just what the Islamists do.

I had a friend complain that the several times he went through Israel, he was “intrusively” questioned about his travel. I asked why he - as an American - traveled with an Israeli passport; of course he didn’t, but he expected to be treated as one.

They made a big deal out of the “No Fly List” assuring us that it would prevent terrorists access. As we all know, that turned out to be false, and mostly delayed or prevented valid travelers with no ties to terrorism. I can tell you that the only way I will fly now is in manacles and leg-irons with armed guards, as I will never willingly forgo my oath to “protect and defend” by acquiescing to terrorist demands as a condition of buying a flight ticket.

Congress should defund and disband the TSA, and revert security back to the airports and airlines.

Yes there certainly is!
The story is that my Photoshop skills have finally gotten to the point that someone actually thought one of my handicrafts was real! YIPPEEEE!!! :)

The other two photos are real, however.

Photoshopped

Look, I know that this is all in good fun and with the best of intentions and only meant to illustrate how fed up we all are with all of this fascist thuggery. However, I am going to suggest that you give that photo a rest for one reason. What has actually happened and has been documented is outrageous enough to shut down this regime of would be tinpot dictators without giving them the out that we are making stuff up.

Not trying to be hard on you at all; it is a good photoshop job, and I think it a marvelously good joke myself, but still, better for now we all stick to the facts which are alreayd plenty outrageous enough.

I am as much up for a good laugh as anyone on this forum except maybe Laz. And I am all for heaping as much scorn and ridicule on these fascist thugs as can be heaped.

I am only suggesting that we be a little careful. While humor is a potent weapon, this is serious business, this hunting down those in high places who despise our constitution and I just want to keep this focused on them and their outrageous acts, and not have it come back on us where we have to do some splainin. Sorry, but I have seen it too many times.

Look, I am not attacking you. I am merely suggesting that you put it aside for now, and you can take the advice or leave it as you see fit.

If I were to attack you for real, you would know it. I would bite with canines and hold on for all it is worth until I left a gaping bleading wound. But I have nothing to attack you for. I have no sense that you are an anticonstitutionalist bent on cooking up phony high-sounding arguments for why it is right to destroy all we hold sacred, and so I have no argument with you.

What I find most disturbing about the enhanced TSA screening is that it is not a temporary measure that we must endure until terrorism is defeated. It is a permanent intrusion on our liberties that will only get worse over time because we have no plan for victory. Hell, our government won’t even name our enemy or say the word victory!
