• Documents Reveal TSA Officers Allegedly Groped Passengers’ Breasts, Genitals

    Transportation Security Administration officers allegedly sexually assaulted passengers at three major U.S. international airports, according to documents obtained by a government watchdog group.

    Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security, after the TSA failed to respond to a March 5, 2014 Freedom of Information Act request, and received 58 pages of sexual assault allegations.

    Victims of the sexual assault allegations said they were “shocked,” “violated,” and “humiliated,” documents show.

    One report showed that a passenger “was struck very hard in the groin area” during a pat down at Denver International Airport on April 7, 2013.

    A TSA official questioned an elderly woman about her colostomy bag, according to the document. She told the officer “It’s only poop. I can’t blow up a plane with poop!”

    The officer then made her “touch her bag so I could then test her hands,” the report said

    Another woman in Los Angeles in October 2013 was allegedly molested by a female TSA agent who “placed both palms against my breasts and I was shocked, humiliated, alarmed and assaulted and said ‘Stop!’”

    She reported the incident to a supervisor who told they’d look at the surveillance footage of the incident, but she was not allowed to know what actions were taken against the officer.

    In April, it was revealed at Denver airport two TSA agents teamed up, one female and one gay male, to manipulate pat-down responsibilities when male passengers were deemed attractive.

    Yet another report claims in July 2013 at O’Hare Airport  a TSA officer  stuck his hands down a man’s pants  “and grabbed the top of his penis and placed his fingers in his butt crack.” The person was sure that he was violated, wanted to talk to a supervisor and  said he is going to file a police report with Chicago Police Department.

    “We had to fight and sue in court to get the TSA to disclose these shocking complaints shows the TSA is more interested in a cover up than addressing the problem that its employees violate innocent travelers too often, sexually or otherwise, said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a statement.

    “Americans simply trying to board a plane should not have to worry about being assaulted by federal employees working for TSA,” Fitton said.
