Ladies we have all the power. We book our family vacations and as Easter and the summer break approaches use your money to show the airlines and the administration that we are not going to go to the airports and be patted down, humiliated and let pedophiles look at our children’s bodies. The new scanners that Janat Napolitano wants to use show body parts including the breast and penis. It is just disgusting that we citizens are going to be treated this way. Who are the security guards? Pedophiles will be flocking to these jobs so they can see your child’s naked body. And then if they believe you are suspect you are in a no win situation where you have to allow them to pat you down, touch your body and touch your child’s body. One woman told me she recently had a security guard touch her inner thighs up to her pelvic bone because they saw something suspicious and it was her zipper. She was complaining and she was told to shut up or get arrested. What is next cavity checks? Why on earth are we allowing this? The only way is to not fly. To show them we will not tolerate this treatment.
We are patting down young girls but not profiling Middle Eastern Men? And it’s going to get worse. Bring on the body scanners. Where you can see a full outline of a woman’s breasts, man’s genitalia and your children’s bodies.
So a guy with known terror connection who bought an airline ticket in cash and boarded an international flight without a passport is allowed on a transatlantic flight?
While Americans are walking around without shoes on and Grandmothers and Children are being pulled out of line and patted down by Government workers?
I just heard a story about a father and young daughter pulled out of a security line. They patted down his daughter and went through her Hello Kitty backpack. He asked them “why.” They said “Because you look friendly.” Why are we bothering teaching “good touch bad touch” to our kids when they can be patted down by strangers in public because of political corrected-ness?
Meanwhile, four Middle Eastern men behind this family went through the security line without being stopped.
Yesterday, Janet “Pat” Napolitano told reporters during a briefing that the United States is scheduled to deploy 300 additional advanced imaging scanners at U.S. airports in 2010, and may deploy more.
From The Guardian…The rapid introduction of full body scanners at British airports threatens to breach child protection laws which ban the creation of indecent images of children… Ministers now face having to exempt under 18’s from the scans or face the delays of introducing new legislation to ensure airport security staff do not commit offences under child pornography laws.
Doctors go through years of de-sensitivation training before they start doing physical exams (2nd year med school). And here we are going to let government workers looking at images? What training are they going to go through?
Enough is Enough!
