Skip to comments.Female Passengers Say They’re Targeted By TSA
Posted on 02/14/2012 11:13:31 AM PST by rawhide
A Dallas woman says TSA agents repeatedly asked her to step back into a body scanning machine at DFW International Airport. I feel like I was totally exposed, said Ellen Terrell, who is a wife and mother. They wanted a nice good look.
When Ellen Terrell and her husband, Charlie, flew out of DFW Airport several months ago, Terrell says she was surprised by a question a female TSA agent asked her. She says to me, Do you play tennis? And I said, Why? She said, You just have such a cute figure.
Terrell says she walked into the body scanner which creates an image that a TSA agent in another room reviews. Terrell says she tried to leave, but the female agent stopped her. She says, Wait, we didnt get it, recalls Terrell, who claims the TSA agent sent her back a second time and even a third. But that wasnt good enough.
After the third time, Terrell says even the agent seemed frustrated with her co-workers in the other room. Shes talking into her microphone and she says, Guys, it is not blurry, Im letting her go. Come on out.
Ellen and Charlie Terrell are convinced that the extra screenings were unnecessary, possibly even voyeuristic.

Fired? Probably promoted for diligence.
Federal employees don’t ever get fired.
There is no situation in which someone who sees you naked professionally should be saying you look "cute", especially a woman's figure. "Your outfit is cute" is entirely acceptable, but this sounds exactly like far too many of the TSA people I've dealt with. BTW, I have traveled with a very cute woman, and she gets the same treatment and the same extra scans. This invasion of privacy is not worth the "reduced" risk of terrorism, not when the actual benefit is negligible.
The most voyeuristic are potential IRS hires.
I’m willing to bet that there is a TSA agent writing a ‘tell-all’ book about what goes on behind the scenes at the TSA.
To think that some dude is *really* enjoying his job looking at some of these screenings wouldn’t seem a stretch. To think that there’s been instances of TSA agents playing games with passengers would seem likely.
First of all, this stuff is against the constitution.
Second, women should be viewing women and men viewing men.
Third, I’ve stopped flying. There’s no place or person I want to see that’s not within driving distance.
I am fully aware of the reality that some people have to fly in conjunction with their employment. But I ask of the others: is it really worth it to feed the monster which is the TSA which is the federal government by flying voluntarily?
The airlines are obviously not fighting the system. It’s up to the passengers.
TSA thugs need to be tarred and feathered.
IIRC, the newer scanners do not show your actual body, just a generic body with any suspicious areas highlighted.
In my book, the most despicable Americans, yes even the non-english speaking ones with a wet-ink green card are:
1. TSA Employees
2. Congressmen/women with more than three Terms
3. Senators of any term length
4. Personal Injury Lawyers
5. Disability Insurance Lawyers....
Of Course, Obama/Biden/Pelosi are at the very tip top of the list, but that’s a given.
Every time my wife has gotten the “pat down” she says she feels her boobs have been groped.
This is none of your affair, move along Citizen...
This was a woman TSA agent saying this to a woman.
Maybe I should not fly because I would have asked for a supervisor right then.
Nor would I have consented to get radiated 3 times.
The indignity of the grope at least does not potentially cause cell damage.
Nonsense. The govt is the perfect hiding place for faggots and perverts. Remember jack kennedy and his whore wife? How about bj klinton?
This is probably total BS. She is probably so sure she is so important, she refused to stand still.
They are probably suing on Wednesday!
that’s why there’s a D.C. lamp post with space reserved for Michael Chertoff when the Revolution comes...
That what "reassignment" is all about. They've already determined you have the qualities to be a federal employee. They just have to find a venue that utilizes one's true talents.
The incident occurred at DFW International Airport earlier this month. Wife and mother Ellen Terrell was asked by a female TSA screener Do you play tennis? When Terrell asked why, the screener responded, You just have such a cute figure.
Terrell was then told to go through the naked body scanner not once but a second time. She then heard the TSA screener talking into her microphone saying, Come on guys, alright, alright, one more time.
After Terrell was forced to undergo a third blast of radiation from the body scanner, the male TSA agents in the back room who were obviously enjoying the show tried to send her through yet again to see more images of her naked body.
Guys, it is not blurry, Im letting her go. Come on out, the female TSA screener said, finally ending the ordeal.
I feel like I was totally exposed, Terrell told CBS 11. They wanted a nice good look.
Does not explain then what the guys were ogling? Is the TSA lying and the old machines are still being used?
The one at the Austin airport only shows an outline, not the details this one does.
What- are you another shill for Big Sister? I am more willing to believe them than I am to believe a pack of union-wage sexual predators sanctioned by our own government to humiliate and degrade Americans while doing nothing about the real problem- MOSLEMS.
Can you say harassment and shakedowns? We have a bunch of rapists at the TSA running about.
With a system like this without accountability and balance of power, our TSA is becoming as perverted and friendly with Islamic terror and rape.
It’s not a “Body Scanner.” It’s a “Booty Scanner!”
I'm not saying your wife is part of this crowd so don't take it this way but if the TSA agent is a super hot male women enjoy it while if the agent is an ugly male it's a affront to their constitutional rights.
There was a hilarious sexual harrasment scene about this subject on SNL some years back.
My wife asked for the pat-down at Austin, Texas, last week. The agent told her to step thru the scanner. My wife is under-going chemo treatments and does not want exposure to scanners. There was a lot of back-and-forth comments with the agent, who assured my wife there is no radiation (yeah, sure). Finally, my wife points to a sign that says you have a choice to opt out of the scanner. She said, it’s my choice, isn’t it. She finally got the pat-down. Damn nazi TSA.
I concur - the "generic body image" is merely a veneer that was designed to quell the objections. The scanners can still see everything they could before (and probably more), and there's probably a function key or some memory review system that can call up the actual, unmodified images.
I wonder how many of these female passengers were later contacted by Big Sis for a possible date.
I know conclusively, but I’m not trying to convince you.
The airport in question would not have the newer equipment anyway, so it’s a moot point in this case.
You are nuts. Nothing I posted says I believe the TSA OR THE UNIONS, nor the people that sell these machines.
Of course they’re lying.
They lied when the said the machines lacked the ability to store images.
They don’t tell the truth until they’re caught.
This TSA whole operation is a socialist pervert’s wet dream.
Need to sue them individually for sexual assault.
Unfortunately, that is not always relevant - not with certain softball coaches, PE teachers, and TSA "women".
