Mom Found 'Guilty' by court for refusing TSA pat down on daughter (video)

A woman who stood up to TSA screeners and refused to allow them to grope her or her 14 year old daughter has been found guilty of “disorderly conduct” and sentenced to one year of probation by a court in Tennessee.
Back in July 2011, Andrea Fornella Abbott of Clarksville, was arrested by Nashville airport authorities for expressing outrage at the TSA procedures.
A police report stated that Abbott would not allow her daughter to be “touched inappropriately” or have her “crotch grabbed”. Abbott also refused to submit to a full body scan, saying that she did not want her or her daughters’ naked bodies revealed by the scanner.
The report noted that she attempted to take cell phone video of the incident but was prevented from doing so by the TSA screeners.

Andrea Fornella Abbott Should Be Nominated as Mother of the Year

I hope Andrea's daughter appreciates the fact that she has a parent who is willing to endure the wrath of the U.S. government in order to keep her from harm.

The last time I flew, I shook my head in disbelief as I watched all the idiots who emerged from the naked body scanners with big grins on their faces, as though they had just done something really great.

Brave woman to stand up to such

NAZI tactics being uses at TSA check points. Got to love a FREE America, right?


Fascism is very popular in America.

It is even taking over the federal government and courts. Its already in control of most police and educational institutions.

It is time to start paying these people a visit.

Assault will get you about the same sentence, if you are a first time offender.

Are there any organized militias in Tennessee?

Men do not let this happen to their women and children and still call themselves, "men".


I couldn't agree more!


We need a Constitutional uprising over this issue in this country. Which Supreme Court district has best track record for upholding 4th amendment? Take this to the Supreme Court & raise hell. Rand Paul should raise hell over this in the Senate.

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!
