“When the TSA outlaws nipple rings only outlaws will have nipple rings.”
The bungling “Boobs” of the Transportation Security Administration are at it again. Instead of keeping Americans safe while flying, they seem more concerned with the rape and sexual molestation of American citizens while ignoring the real threat of Islamic Terrorism that threatens our “Friendly Skies”.
From Michelle Malkin:
A Texas woman who said she was forced to remove a nipple ring with pliers in order to board an airplane called Thursday for an apology by federal security agents and a civil rights investigation. “I wouldn’t wish this experience upon anyone,” Mandi Hamlin said at a news conference. “My experience with TSA was a nightmare I had to endure. No one deserves to be treated this way.”
Hamlin, 37, said she was trying to board a flight from Lubbock to Dallas on Feb. 24 when she was scanned by a Transportation Security Administration agent after passing through a larger metal detector without problems. The female TSA agent used a handheld detector that beeped when it passed in front of Hamlin’s chest, the Dallas-area resident said. Hamlin said she told the woman she was wearing nipple piercings. The agent then called over her male colleagues, one of whom said she would have to remove the jewelry, Hamlin said.
Hamlin said she could not remove them and asked whether she could instead display her pierced breasts in private to the female agent. But several other male officers told her she could not board her flight until the jewelry was out, she said. She was taken behind a curtain and managed to remove one bar-shaped piercing but had trouble with the second, a ring.
“Still crying, she informed the TSA officer that she could not remove it without the help of pliers, and the officer gave a pair to her,” said Hamlin’s attorney, Gloria Allred, reading from a letter she sent Thursday to the director of the TSA’s Office of Civil Rights and Liberties. Allred is a well-known Los Angeles lawyer who often represents high-profile claims. Applying pliers to the torso of a mannequin that had a peach-colored bra with the rings on it, Hamlin showed reporters at the news conference how she took off the second ring.
Personally, I don’t blame the frontline screeners for this invasion of privacy. I blame the Supervision and the Upper Brass of the TSA for crap like this.
Having spent 3 yrs of my life that I will never get back with the Transportation Security Administration, I can personally testify that many of the so called “Supervisors” are nothing more then drooling idiots who would stand behind a podium and shout orders to screeners to force attractive young ladies to remove jackets and sweaters so as to reveal what little some of them were wearing underneath so as to satisfy their depraved desires for a private trip to the bathroom after watching a Pittsburgh Steelers game in the airport bars during peak travel times. (Yes, that really happens)
When the TSA first formed in 2002, they were in such a hurry to place people in the nations airports that they hired and promoted every idiot they could pull off the streets. People with little or no leadership experience. People with little or no experience with Law Enforcement or Security were placed in positions of authority, many simply because they had a friend who knew a friend that could get them a job. Cronyism runs rampant and is at an epidemic level within the Dept Of Homeland Security and the TSA.
I fly all the time and realize that Airport security is a necessary evil. But would it be asking to much from the TSA to practice some common sense?
As a former Security Screener for the TSA, I encountered men with nipple rings on several occasions and would simply explain to the passenger that I was going to use the back of my hand to pat down the sensitive area. No visual inspection and no request to remove was necessary. But then again, as a experienced Law Enforcement officer, I used something rarely used these days…..Experience and common sense.
My personal experience has taught me that the TSA’s illusion of Security is just that. It’s nothing more then an expensive three ring dog and pony show of smoke and mirrors.
Have the followers of the cartoon like prophet now developed a Booby bomb? When did nipple rings all of a sudden become a security threat?
These are the same people that two other boobs want to put in charge of our health care system. Presidential Wannabe’s Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama.
When it comes to Airport Security, the Israelis have it going on. Profile, profile, profile. They profile people, not scissors, tweezers, or nipple rings!
TSA= Tits Security Admirers
