Woman says TSA assaulted her at Shuttlesworth Int'l

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) - A San Diego woman claims she was sexually assaulted by TSA agents during a routine screening at Birmingham Shuttlesworth International Airport.

Maggie Buckenmayer, 58, was going through security November 1st when her artificial knee set off a metal detector. As is procedure, TSA preformed a pat down search.

"The female assistant began her pat down and was very, very, extremely, extremely invasive with her hand pressure between between my thighs, between my legs, on my female body parts," Buckenmayer said.

Buckenmayer says she was told a protrusion was discovered between her legs and that she would have to go through another pat down.

"This one is so invasive, so uncomfortable, so painful that I would consider it sexual assault," she said.

She says she became emotional after being asked to go to a private screening room. There she claims she voluntarily removed her pants but was asked to put them back on for a third screening. She says she was eventually allowed to leave after the TSA agent who preformed the third pat down did not find anything out of the ordinary. However she claims she did have to undergo a final sweep with a metal-detecting wand.

"If some stranger did to me what one of these TSA agents did, that stranger would be would be convicted of sexual assault and sent to prison," Buckenmayer continued.

This just sickens me....

unfortunately, the overwelming majority of our fellow citizens do not care as long as there is beer in the fridge and porn on demand. How do you think we got to this point. We all need to move to one state and draw our line in the sand. Someplace with nice weather.

stay in the public view!

"after being asked to go to a private screening room."

I always politely opt-out and have never gone through the scanners. September of this year was the first time I was asked if I want to go to a private room, and I said "no, I want to stay in public where everyone can see and cameras are recording."

How bad ...

How bad and how many assaults does it take before enough people have had enough of this crap and something is done? Every politician should be required to go thru this every time they fly and something would be done about it at that point.

I believe that ...

I believe that it is one of two things, they are down voting the actions of the TSA and not the post or the down votes are from government trolls.

They registered here this year most of them did it this spring and they down-vote everything I post here.

Have you been having an affair with Paula Broadwell also? Maybe that is the reason.
