Sexual assault by an employee of the government is still a crime

With news that there are LAWSUITS LAWSUITS LAWSUITS flying at the TSA now, and the volume of the issue being driven to a hysteria (seriously, I am pleasantly surprised that I get to refer folks to Drudge Report as a courtesy for his excellent coverage of the whole thing)… there’s only one thing I want to convey to Hammer of Truth readers, and anyone else who values their rights and dignity:

Report all TSA employee violations of your rights to local law enforcement. TSA employees are not above the law, they are not exempt from the law, they can be arrested for improper contact (molestation, sexual assault or otherwise). Just “following TSA orders” or procedures (AKA the Nuremberg defense)* is not an excuse that will stand up in any sane court. Send the clear message that any illegal conduct is rejected in the strongest terms, by phoning REAL police.

Penn Jillette tried this and won VIP status, because he knows his rights. Now it’s time for the rest of us to step up, fight back and watch each others backs against Big Sis’s police state, and the numerous attempts to demoralize and degrade our rights.

UPDATE: From ABC Channel 7 in San Francisco “The San Mateo district attorney’s office has a warning for all TSA personnel at SFO — anyone inappropriately touching a passenger during a security pat down will be prosecuted.” This will spread…

*UPDATE: Added link and AKA for Nuremberg information.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.

  1. You can report a case of sexual assault to the San Mateo District Atty’s office. The phone number is:
    (650)652-RAPE (7273). I will certainly have them on speed dial the next time I have to fly through an American airport.

  2. She said, “Well, you know a LOT about this.” I said, “Well, it’s not really the right word, but freedom is kind of a hobby with me, and I have disposable income that I’ll spend to find out how to get people more of it.”

    Amazing excerpt from the Penn blog.

    1. He’s probably one of the greatest salesmen for anything liberty-related. Would love to see him urge his followers to embrace the civic duty of activism by showing up to one of the OPT OUT DAY protests at their local airport. All they’d have to do is google around a bit.
