3-year-old Mandy Simon was passing through security with her dad at the
airport in Chattanooga, Tenn. She started crying when she was asked to put her teddy bear through the X-ray machine. This made it difficult for her to walk calmly through the metal detector and she set the machine off twice, which meant she “must be

Agent thrusts hand down man’s pants:
Radio host Owen JJ Stone (“OhDoctah”) went through airport security last weekend. He was told that the rules had been changed and was offered a private pat-down screening. When he asked what the procedure entailed, the TSA agent responded, “I have to go in your waistband, I have to put my hand down your pants.” And that’s exactly what the agent did, thrusting his hand into Stone’s trousers.

TSA agents fondling passengers’ penises, inserting finger into rectum and vagina:
A November 16, 2010 exclusive (to subscribers) Wayne Madsen Report asserts:
There are reports from across the nation of invasive pat down searches involving male TSA screeners forcing their hands into the crotches of male passengers, fondling their penises and testicles, and even putting their fingers in rectums. As far as women passengers are concerned, female screeners have fondled the breasts of women and placed their fingers into the vaginas of passengers, including underage teen girls, elderly women, and even a nun.
Thousands of scanner images saved in Florida:
government rulers assure us that the pornographic images of passengers taken by those invasive full-body scanners will not be saved and will never be made public to ensure our privacy. The latest government official ruler to say so was Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano who, curiously, declined to be scanned herself at the unveiling of porn scanners in JFK Airport.
Now we learn that U.S. Marshals operating the scanner in the Orlando, Florida courthouse had improperly — perhaps illegally –saved 35,000 images of the scans of public servants and private citizens. Through a FOIA request, a Gizmodo investigation obtained 100 of the photographs saved by the Gen 2 millimeter wave scanner from Brijot Imaging Systems, Inc. You can see a video of those images on the Gizmodo website.
