Miss USA Susie Castillo Sexually Assaulted TSA Style

Dear Friends,

To be quite honest, I almost didn't post this video and blog because I kept asking myself, "Am I just being a baby?" I'm also not one to stir up controversy. In fact, I do my best to live a very positive and healthy life. However, in the situation I'm about to describe, I felt truly violated and believe I should let my voice be heard. Ultimately, I hope others will do the same. Mahatma Gandhi famously said, "Be the change you want to see in the world." So, that's what I'm doing by sharing this experience:

On my flight back to Los Angeles last week after hosting the red carpet premiere for "Fast Five" in Rio De Janeiro, I connected in Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) where I had the misfortune of being selected to go through one of those full body scanners that emits radiation. Now, if you don't fly very often, you might not worry about it. But I'm a frequent flyer and don't wish to be irradiated more than I already am on flights (we get a pretty large dose of radiation while flying due to our proximity to the sun; the longer your flight, the more your radiation exposure) and in life in general (we're exposed to radiation all day every day; it's called "background radiation"). So I will always "opt out" of going through these body scanners, especially since the long-term effects of radiation are quite well documented: it mutates our cells, often in irreversible ways, and causes cancer. I'm all set with that!

Anyway, after "opting out," I proceeded to follow a very nice older female TSA employee to the "pat down" area. It was an inconvenience, but I thought, "No biggie. I just went through this at LAX for the first time and it wasn't too bad, so let's just get it over with."

Well, this pat down was completely different. It was MUCH MORE invasive than my first one at LAX, just a week before. To say that I felt invaded is an understatement. What bothered me most was when she ran the back of her hands down my behind, felt around my breasts, and even came in contact with my vagina! Honestly, I was in shock, especially since the woman at LAX never actually touched me there. The TSA employee at DFW touched private area 4 times, going up both legs from behind and from the front, each time touching me there. Was I at my gynecologist's office? No! This was crazy!

I felt completely helpless and violated during the entire process (in fact, I still do), so I became extremely upset. If I wanted to get back to Los Angeles, I had no choice but to be violated, whether by radiation or a stranger. I just kept thinking, "What have I done to deserve this treatment as an upstanding, law-abiding American citizen?" Am I a threat to US security? I was Miss USA, for Pete's sake!

Besides, is this procedure really protecting us? I remember hearing about an Al Qaeda terrorist successfully evading security detection by placing a bomb in his rectum. All in an attempt to assassinate Saudi Prince Mohammed Bin Nayef. So what if that happened in the US? Would we then be subjected to random rectal exams in addition to x-rays and being groped by strangers? How far is this going to go? More specifically, how far will WE let this go? As they say, if you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything. I think it's time to stand up for our personal liberty.

As a frequent flyer, I knew getting a "pat down" was inevitable, but I never expected it to make me so upset. When it was over, I grabbed my things, walked over to my husband who was waiting for me, and was completely overcome with emotion.

I have never felt more violated in my life than I did that morning at DFW, and I've heard of others feeling the same way after these "pat downs." Just a couple weeks ago, a video of a six-year-old girl being patted down by TSA made headlines. Talk about unjust and unacceptable. So I decided to speak to a TSA supervisor about how I felt, and make a video about what happened to post on my blog.

This "pat down" is a total violation of our rights (we shouldn't be searched this way without probable cause or a search warrant), therefore I will be filing a complaint via phone, online and also in writing with the TSA to complain each and every time for as long as the TSA is violating my rights.

Here's the video I made right after going through the invasive, unjust, unconstitutional and ineffective "pat down." Honestly, I don't like that I'm putting myself out there like this, --snip-

The latest trolls here would have us believe

that we should all just "bend over" for this TSA nonsense, because it's all "needed" to fight the "War on Terra", which they fully support because they think 9/11 wasn't an "inside job" designed to bring us to this point.

Remember that, next time you get groped. There are people right here on this site who want you to be. In fact, they want you to shut up and take it, because in their little minds, if we say anything about it, "Ron Paul won't get elected".
This is what we're up against folks. It ain't just the TSA. There are infiltrators right here who are working hand-in-hand to put the noose around our necks.

It's time to pass a "LAW" in every state.....

That makes their new "PAT DOWNS" outright illegal....
State law says no one can be incriminated or violated, without probable cause. That is the Fourth Amendment.

We'll stand up and say no more of this nonsense!! If they don't like it, tough...Legally I can opt out. Then they will back down....soon enough they will also run away because I see a bill to "ABOLISH" the TSA division coming in the future.

Careful Obsevations,

alert & vigilant. You have to, to Be,
resist tyranny for freedom with fairness.

-Update-

Susie Castillo will be on the Today show this morning to discuss her TSA encounter.. Should be interesting.

----It was a short interview, but she made some good points about how we shouldnt trade our liberties for safety! Sounds like shes been visiting the dailypaul..

She is brave

most women who are assaulted don't speak up.Think about how ridiculous it is if you are famous.Musicians,artists,...people who have no alternative but to fly from city to city for a show are being forced to be groped,or the x-rated pic taken. If you are famous,the x-rated picture is such a high risk of getting out into the public

Hopefully next time she will say no

If she says no that will raise more eyebrows than a lot of other people saying. Maybe she will sue them or do something other than complain.

You are a very brave young lady and my heart goes out to you.

I feel so cowardly for allowing government to do this to innocent individuals.

People laugh at me for complaining about invasive search. How is getting molested supposed to make one feel safe? Safer than what?

Big bump

Thanks so much for posting this.

Whoa!

I went through DFW at the time of the SUPER BOWL and NOBODY was being selected for screenings...

It sounds like some pervy guards wanted to see what the beauty queen looked like on the monitor...

Up pervoscope!

Yeah, just like during the one-day Thanksgiving protest

the TSA shut down all the machines.

Miss USA is a training dummy for future guards at New Auschwitz

Miss USA is a training dummy for future guards at New Auschwitz. Just like the crematoria operators at the death camps who got their training in the relatively benign euthanasia hospitals.

Oh, they started out slowly, quietly. Accepting death and being close to death. Until finally, their macabre immunity to brutal horror was put to work gassing people by the millions!

Same with the TSA.

None of those TSA agents look especially brilliant. They're the type of people who could do anything for a paycheck. And they may not be aware of the emotional detatchment from the immense crimes against basic human rights and dignity.

Some day, these people may be called up for important, secretive work. High paying work nobody else will have the stomach to do!

What happened to Ron Paul's

What happened to Ron Paul's "Travel with Dignity Bill"" and the other CONGRESSMAN, (FORGOT HIS NAME), who reacted to 6 yr old's molestation experience? This particular flyer must have been the particular victim of a lesbian TSA assault. Things are getting pretty ugly. I guess we can thank Obama for that too.

We can stop this in Texas.

I have a feeling that the "TSA complain cards"

are an Auschawitz first class ticket.

You mean a FEMA Camp ticket?

Auschwitz is a museum.

metaphorically speaking...

alluding to the fact that extermination lists are being created

Groped by the Obama administration...

The person who posted this comment on Youtube (below) has an excellent point - technically, this woman was molested by the Obama administration. We need to bring this to people's attention IMO. This is an election year - Obama needs to be called out on this personally:

by @djbutter22
"I believe you are the one who does not understand Patriotism.

I've sworn that oath - twice. and it is "...support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic..."

And I now work mostly overseas providing logistical support to the military and government contracting agencies.

DHS & TSA are govt Exec. agencies that are operating w/o proper authority from the Jud. branch. They conduct illegal searches in violation of the 4th Amed."

I think we will have to stop flying? I know that is not an option for so many because of business demands - this is an absolute outrage. Who is going to have this "model" American on their nightly news broadcast?

But do know they'll be molested by the Romney Administration?

Quite true. But do know they'll be molested by the Romney Administration? ONLY HARDER?

Here's a bumper sticker:

"Obama's Big Stick policy: BIG! LONG! HARD!

Romney's BIGGER STICK policy: BIGGER! LONGER! HARDER!!"

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

Yes, obviously it's a one party system here.

You're missing my point. Somebody needs to be made to answer to the American people for this regime - and Janet Napolitano doesn't answer to the American people. The buck stops where? In the here and now, make the Executive Branch (Obama) answer for it. And ask Obama supporters to defend it.

You might get some knee jerk reactions from GOPers too.

Only if their funny bone's groped

We might get knee-jerk reactions from GOPers, but that's only if their funny bones are groped by TSA goons.

Judging by the expose reports on security lapses, behind knees and elbows are the LAST places TSA groper-rapers check for guns, grenades, and knives. One time, the groper was too busy violating the passenger's rights and dignity to notice a grenade being cupped in his right hand.

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

but still

you want me killed

She seems like a libertarian.

Then again, I guess most people are, because who doesn't believe in liberty.

Most just don't realize it, because they've been programmed not to. They've been programmed to be collectivists.

she seems like a smart girl

who was taught that stranger danger touching the privates is a molestor. She learned what I learned as a child
