TSA humiliates cancer survivor, shows idiocy
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), or as I heard it called in a bathroom stall, the Tyrannical Sex crime Administration, is trying to dehumanize every group of people in America. Their latest victim is a cancer survivor and the blue gloved goons left him covered in urine.
He was also a retired special education teacher so they should earn double the hate points from the public for that. I’m also very upset at the fact that it happened in my home state of Michigan at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport.
“I was absolutely humiliated, I couldn’t even speak,” said Thomas D. “Tom” Sawyer, 61, of Lansing, Mich. in an MSNBC story.
Sawyer is a bladder cancer survivor and he wears a urostomy bag, it collects his urine from an opening in his abdomen.
“I have to wear special clothes and in order to mount the bag I have to seal a wafer to my stomach and then attach the bag. If the seal is broken, urine can leak all over my body and clothes.”
Combine something delicate like that with the untrained hands of the TSA and surprise! Someone who isn’t a bad guy gets treated like one anyway.
Saywer told MSNBC that he went through the security scanner at the Detroit Metropolitan Airport on Nov. 7. His bag may have been picked up by the nudie scanner because he was selected for a pat-down.
And as an airline passenger you apparently give up your rights, so there is no way he was allowed to say no, they expected him to just submit and accept it so it makes their day easier.
Sawyer wanted to be screened in private and of course the below 100 IQ employees rolled their eyes at him. He insisted so they took him to an office. He had his belt off because he had to go through the scanner and when they put him in the office his two sizes too big pants, which accommodate his medical gear, fell down.
He had to ask them twice if he could pull his pants back up, and when he tried to inform them of his medical condition they kept insisting that they didn’t know need to know about it.
They said their usual procedural crap before patting him down and then they removed his sweatshirt and caught a glimpse of his urostomy bag. That’s when they began to act interested in his medical condition.
“One agent watched as the other used his flat hand to go slowly down my chest. I tried to warn him that he would hit the bag and break the seal on my bag, but he ignored me. Sure enough, the seal was broken and urine started dribbling down my shirt and my leg and into my pants.”
He got no apology; he got no help cleaning up. They only thing they did was tell him that he was free to go about his travels, they were done with him. He wasn’t a bad guy after all.
When you hear craziness like this you realize that it is not surprising that a former police officer of 24 years is saying in Gizmodo that the TSA's draconian procedures may end in public rebellion and/or a terrorist attack. Usually the cops take the side of the establishment. Not this time.
Yes folks this stuff is really happening. If you are one of the people who feels that anything the government needs to do to keep us safe is ok, I feel sorry for you. Maybe, instead of depending on the nanny state to protect you can bash the brains of a potential hijacker in yourself if it ever comes to that.
That way they can get rid of some of these failed burger flippers and drop them back down the idiot hole where they came from.
This is Thomas Sawyer, 61. He looks threatening right? He provided the picture to MSNBC himself.
