TSA Molests Miss USA, Makes Her Cry… For Your Safety
from the feeling-safer? dept
Since the TSA “enhanced patdown” experiences started last fall, I’ve heard from a variety of people who came out of the experience feeling seriously violated, with more than a few asking about legal actions they could take after feeling sexually assaulted and molested by the experience. It really is a lot more common than you might think. Many of those I’ve spoken with have decided that they didn’t want to go public with the story of their own experience and their own feelings, because it felt so intrusive and so personal, that having to “relive” it by fighting the TSA would be just horrible. This is part of what I find most nefarious about the TSA groping brigade: like many sexual assault victims, they’re put in a position where after it’s over, doing something about the assault only forces you to relive the experience.
Thankfully, some people are speaking out. The latest is former Miss USA, Susie Castillo, who has posted an emotional video right after being groped by the TSA and feeling totally violated, leading her to break down and start crying:
In a blog post about the experience, Castillo notes that she’s gone through the patdown before, but this one was much more invasive than previous ones:
Well, this pat down was completely different. It was MUCH MORE invasive than my first one at LAX, just a week before. To say that I felt invaded is an understatement. What bothered me most was when she ran the back of her hands down my behind, felt around my breasts, and even came in contact with my vagina! Honestly, I was in shock, especially since the woman at LAX never actually touched me there. The TSA employee at DFW touched private area 4 times, going up both legs from behind and from the front, each time touching me there. Was I at my gynecologist?s office? No! This was crazy!
I felt completely helpless and violated during the entire process (in fact, I still do), so I became extremely upset. If I wanted to get back to Los Angeles, I had no choice but to be violated, whether by radiation or a stranger. I just kept thinking, ?What have I done to deserve this treatment as an upstanding, law-abiding American citizen?? Am I a threat to US security? I was Miss USA, for Pete?s sake!
Yes, for your safety, the TSA needs to sexually assault Miss USA.
