Why do I get the feeling that an informed populace is law enforcement's biggest fear?

Be a good little subject and don't end up like this woman:

"I can't go through because I have the equivalent of a pacemaker in me," she said.

Hirschkind said because of the device in her body, she was led to a female TSA employee and three Austin police officers. She says she was told she was going to be patted down.

"I turned to the police officer and said, 'I have given no due cause to give up my constitutional rights. You can wand me,'" and they said, 'No, you have to do this,'" she said.

Hirschkind agreed to the pat down, but on one condition.

"I told them, 'No, I'm not going to have my breasts felt,' and she said, 'Yes, you are,'" said Hirschkind.

When Hirschkind refused, she says that "the police actually pushed me to the floor, (and) handcuffed me. I was crying by then. They drug me 25 yards across the floor in front of the whole security."

"It's unfortunate that that happened and she didn't get to fly home, but it makes me feel a little safer," said Emily Protine.

The TSA did release a statement Wednesday that said in part, "Our officers are trained to treat all passengers with dignity and respect. Security is not optional."
This isn't the "law" and this isn't "security". This is :bsflag: plain and simple.

Well, hey. At least she feels safer.

Note to Emily Protine: It makes me [s:1ejusl07]feel less safe[/s:1ejusl07] less safe in reality when government officials essentially rape a rape-victim again by throwing her to the ground, cuffing her, and dragging her 75' in front of the public, merely because she expressed a desire to not have her breasts felt up. And this done to her with impunity and under the color of authority. It is nothing less than an abuse of power.

Does that make you feel like this is a government of the people, for the people? Or a government vs the people, to the people?

When TSA starts checking vaginal cavities, would it make you feel safer if they treat another woman in the same fashion when she expresses a desire to not have a government finger thrust inside her?
