Mother Arrested After Objecting To Her Six Year Old Being Groped By TSA
Sadly, if you want to travel by airplane in this country, groping is your only choice thanks to the federal government.
A 41-year-old Clarksville woman was arrested after Nashville airport authorities say she was belligerent and verbally abusive to security officers, refusing for her daughter to be patted down at a security checkpoint.
Andrea Fornella Abbott yelled and swore at Transportation Security Administration agents Saturday afternoon at Nashville International Airport, saying she did not want her daughter to be “touched inappropriately or have her “crotch grabbed,” a police report states.
After the woman refused to calm down, airport police said, she was charged with disorderly conduct and taken to jail. She has been released on bond.
The mother objected to going through what is described as the x-ray machine too, though I don’t know if they’re talking about the metal detector or the nude image scanner. Either way, she may have been behaving a bit unreasonably at the security checkpoint especially given that she had to know these tactics were waiting there for her.
Regardless, who can blame American citizens from tiring of the TSA’s nonsense? We’re treated like cattle. We’re humiliated, and our rights are violated, for no other reason than because we want to get on an airplane.Tags: airport security, tsa
