Call for Action: Online Petition for Banning TSA Groping in Texas

by Dr. Edward Group DC, NP, DACBN, DCBCN, DABFM Published on , Last Updated on

Earlier today, I was emailed an online petition to ban the intrusive groping of travelers in Texas at the hands of the TSA.

TSA Pat-Down

This strikes a chord with me, because not long ago, my family and I were traveling to New York and we had a negative experience with TSA. We elected not to go through the full body scanner, instead opting for the pat-down. My son was really shaken up by it. While the TSA agent whom performed the pat-down was a professional, my son still did not like some stranger touching him in that manner.

I believe it’s time to put a stop to this. If you agree, please take a few moments to visit the linked site and sign the petition.

In the meantime, here’s a little about the bill:

Debbie McKee, Interim State Coordinator for Campaign for Liberty:Landmark legislation to stop the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) from groping travelers without probable cause has passed an important vote in the Texas House. On the evening of May 12th HB 1937 was given unanimous approval by voice vote on second reading. HB 1937, authored by Representative David Simpson (R-Longview), is the first bill in the country that would actively restrict the TSA’s intrusive screening practices to pass a legislative vote.

“HB 1937 is a significant step forward in the protection of our constitutional and civil liberties,” said Rep. Simpson. “Groping innocent citizens does little to enhance security but it does much to reduce our freedom and dignity. I am very thankful that members of both parties have joined together to defend our citizens’ dignity against the TSA’s egregious screening methods.”

HB 1937 would make it a criminal act for security personnel to touch a person’s private areas without probable cause as a condition of travel or as a condition of entry into a public place. This bill is not intended to contravene any federal statutes currently in place.

    Our children are being desensitized to think that this type of thing is normal under the guize of their safety and the protection of our country. It is called living in fear and the US government is fully aware of this. As all governments understand, when the countrymen are fearful they are easy to control. I hope your son was assured that this is NOT normal (whether a professional is performing it or not) nor should he or any other child become desensitized to something that takes away their personal freedom. We are living in times, not unlike our forefathers, in which we must continually stand-up for our freedoms — just in a different manner — often from within. We have a government that thrives on control — especially control of our children — let us help you — from the cradle to the grave type of mentality. We have signed the petition and I hope other Texans will do so, too. TK
