CrimeDime: How TSA Patdowns Meet the Definition of Sexual Assault

I guess the topic can be put under “along those lines”.

She never said no. She knew what was going to happen, but she went along with it anyway. Touching other people’s bodies is normal. It’s your duty to let someone else touch your bathing suit areas. You have to let people in a position of power do what they want to you, even if you don’t like it. You shouldn’t argue about being touched in sensitive areas if it’s for your own good.

We should be ashamed that our society has gone so far as to support the continued sexual assault of citizens at the hands of government employees with no actual benefit to security. Even if there were a benefit, would it be worth it? What price security? How far is too far?

I agree to the statement that society should be ashamed. Good questions as well.

I don’t think it’s worth all that.

As Ben Franklin said, “They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

True, and anybody gets what he deserves. Some people ask the government to do something just to feel secure. And they go and cut civil rights to obtain the feeling of security. Good for them at least.
