Maybe the TSA Has Gone a Little Bit Too Far...

The mainstream news cycle has dropped the story of TSA airline passenger abuse, but that doesn't mean it isn't still happening.
From comes this little tale. Claire Hirschkind, a 56-year-old woman with a pacemaker, was unable to go through the TSA's porno scanners due to potential dangers to her life-saving device. Instead, they demanded to give her an "enhanced patdown" - which is a nice euphemism for being finger fucked. Ms. Hirschkind, a rape victim, refused: "I told them, 'No, I'm not going to have my breasts felt,' and she said, 'Yes, you are.'" She was pushed to the floor, handcuffed and arrested. Of course, this gross violation of the Fourth Amendment would be disgusting without the added circumstances, but in her case it is decidedly an even greater outrage...
