Mike Adams of NaturalNews.com brought this issue to my attention with his article FBI's new definition of rape ensnares TSA agents as serial rapists.
"[I]n October," he writes, "the FBI's UCR subcommittee Advisory Policy Board voted to recommend the definition [of rape] be expanded. The new definition
"Rape" is: ...penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim."If we use that definition, Adams says, the TSA is in trouble.
"Oh, come on!" I thought. "The TSA isn't examining people's anuses or sexual organs!"
But I followed the links in his article and I was shocked.
Here's the story of a woman who was sexually assaulted by a female TSA agent
"Yeah, yeah. 'Assault.' Right," I can hear you say to yourself. "It's not that the victim was assaulted. The only reason she claimed sexual assault is because she was engaging in political theater."
That's what I thought when I read Adams' article. But then when I read the details, I started to get a different picture. I mean, how would you describe the following alleged behavior on the part of the TSA agent?
[T]he woman, FOUR TIMES, stuck the side of her gloved hand INTO my vagina, through my pants. Between my labia. She really got up there. Four times. Back right and left, and front right and left. In my vagina. Between my labia. I was shocked — utterly unprepared for how she got the side of her hand up there. It was government-sanctioned sexual assault.Still not wanting to over-react, I thought, "Well
Two such cases? And both women who complain are very explicit about what the agent did in each case, and their descriptions are very similar: Former Miss USA winner: TSA agent ‘touched my vagina’.
More specifically, says Susie Castillo,
This woman, she touched my vagina four times because she went up my leg, up both legs, from behind and then turned around and did it in the front.Is there "something to this" story?
An attorney commenting on the first case writes,
Amy’s public assault is not unusual. Stories of gratuitous and inappropriate touching by TSA employees are legion. The stories range from inhuman indifference to deliberate humiliation. Many of those stories emphasize that showing any resistance — whether by opting out of scanners, or voicing objections to groping — will result in immediate retaliation, and possible official investigation, by TSA employees. The TSA has reached the point that its sense of entitlement is nearly impervious to satire. Yet our government assures us that our concerns are meritless.There was outrage when these searches were put into place. Where is the outrage today? "Where are womens' organizations in taking a stand against serial rapists working at the airport?" asks Adams.
Here at NaturalNews, we believe rape is wrong, and unlike NOW and Feminist.org, we don't make exceptions for federal employees committing those acts of rape. We think rape is ALWAYS wrong, whether you're at an airport, a restaurant, a dental chair or a late-night party where you had a little too much to drink or your sex offender creep boyfriend dropped a little Rohypnol in your cup.For more on this general subject, I encourage you to read the rest of Mike's article on the subject and/or We’re Going To Molest You. And Then We’re Going To Make You Pay for It. The latter briefly tells the story of the first woman whose story I have quoted, above. But then another one about a woman who is being billed by the hospital where a police-forced body cavity search upon her person turned up no evidence of any criminal wrongdoing on her part. But the police had "credible suspicion," they claim (based on the hearsay of one person), so they were going to make sure they "did their duty" upon her. But they had no intention, apparently, of paying for their supposed law-enforcement action.
It is stunning to find that we, an alternative news organization, actually possess a stronger sense of opposing rape than these feminist groups. And it makes you wonder: If they believe rape is acceptable when committed by federal employees at the airport, under what other conditions would they also support the serial raping of women?
And this is justice?
