TSA Reminds Us All Who The Real Terrorists Are
Distressed woman filmed receiving full body grope down, cameraman told “do not talk to her”
July 26, 2011
A new video of a distressed woman receiving a full body pat-down after going through an AIT body scanner reminds Americans that they are the real targets of the TSA and the Department of Homeland Security’s crackdown at airports and other public places across the country.
The woman was filmed at Chicago O’Hare International Airport by a bystander who was initially concerned by the fact that the TSO attending to her was pregnant and in close proximity to the radiation emitting body scanners.
“While waiting for my now chronically delayed flight from ORD, I noticed a pregnant TSO working around the AIT.” the man explains on the flyertalk forum.
“The TSO was performing pat-downs, but was constantly moving near the machines. I found it concerning that (1) a pregnant woman would willingly expose herself to a radiation-laden work environment with no protection and (2) that her employers would allow her to do so. At the very least, couldn’t they assign her duties that don’t have her working right next to the machines.”
The bystander then noticed that the woman the TSO was patting down was visibly upset and attempted to reassure her by saying he was filming the incident and would happily provide a copy of the video.
