A woman in Colorado claimed that she was groped to the point of sexual assault by a female TSA Agent. Thirty-nine year old Jamelyn Steenhoek found out yesterday that the DA would not file charges because they could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt the pat down was an assault.
I travel frequently (I have to or I would not use the airlines) and I always refuse to go through the X-Ray machine so I end up getting the pat down. I have never been assaulted but then again I am not a woman and I don’t look like someone who can be taken advantage of. I don’t know if Ms. Steenhoek fits that bill but she is a woman and they are often the target of sexual assault.
It is no surprise that the DA decided not to file charges against the agent. The entire system is rigged so that the thugs of government can’t be held accountable for their misdeeds. Look at Chicago. Rahm Emanuel is selling bonds to raise money and a large sum of the money raised will go to pay off civil suits against the Chicago police. Once again those who committed the offenses will have their misdeeds paid for by others.
TSA Agents are not accountable to the people who pay their salaries so they abuse us.
I traveled recently and refused the X-Ray so they pulled me over for the pat down. While they were debating who was going to do it a guy was told he had to and he expressed his displeasure by using an expletive “Oh, GD it.”
They don’t like it because they want people to be compliant sheep. The pat down does not bother me (personally but it bothers me the Constitution is violated) and it is worth it to make these slugs do something they do not like.
My rights are violated but I am used to that.
I live in Maryland.
Never surrender, never submit.
