A prominent journalist of over 20 years has written a scathing piece describing her treatment at the hands of the TSA last week, saying she feels “violated and raped”.

Karen Kaplan, the current Assistant Editor at the prominent science journal Nature, documented a run in with the TSA that occurred at Norfolk International Airport on November 25.

In the article written for The Day news website, Kaplan, a reporter with more than two decades of experience in the publishing industry, says she was subjected to “an arbitrary, unnecessary and appallingly invasive” TSA patdown, “…which more appropriately can be called a sexual assault.”

Kaplan describes how she did not trigger any alarms at the checkpoint, but was pulled aside by two TSA agents and selected for a patdown because she was wearing a long skirt.

“The search involved highly invasive groping and probing of my private areas.” Kaplan writes. “As part of the procedure, which took five to six minutes, the TSA agent reached into my skirt, exploring front to back.”

Kaplan notes that she asked for the patdown to be conducted in private, however it was only because she knew the guidelines and raised it as an issue that this request was granted by the TSA.

“I am horrified and disgusted by the experience – a clear example of absolute abuse of absolute power.” Kaplan states.

“I feel violated and raped. TSA agents who subject passengers to this odious, invasive and abusive “patdown” – a screamingly laughable euphemism if ever there was one – are operating under the same psychological principle that prompts prison guards to abuse and torture inmates – they do it because they can.”
