TSA -- Ex-Miss USA

Was Treated Like Anyone Else

4/28/2011 2:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former Miss USA Susie Castillo was NOT "molested" during an airport pat down ... according to the TSA which tells TMZ its officer acted totally appropriately.

A rep for TSA tells TMZ, "We have reviewed this passenger's screening experience and found that the officer followed proper procedures."

Castillo claims a TSA agent at Dallas Fort Worth Airport touched her genitals four times during an inspection last week.

TSA added it is "always seeking to strike the right balance between privacy and security while providing the security that the American people want and deserve."

I give her credit for putting it out publicly. I've heard the same thing from many of my friends and I'm sure you have too. The X-ray is dangerous and the attitude and pat-down's are molestation. This young woman was serious and not doing this for attention.

None of this would have prevented 9/11. Absolutely none of it. The whole country has gone insane.

You people defending the TSA are disgusting morons. Claiming it's done "for our protection". You really believe every single thing the government tells you huh? Groping a woman's vagina 4 f***ing times isn't done for our "protection". Feeling up a 3 year old girl who is kicking and screaming "stop touching me!", isn't done for our protection. They are sticking their hands on areas they shouldn't be touching. We aren't in ****ing prison, we're not inmates. What they are doing IS asexual assault. The only difference is they work for the government so they get away with it.

What makes me even more sick is how the American people just stand there and take it. Only a fraction of people have stood up for themselves. Everyone else like the pathetic sheep that they are, just go allowing with it. I swear they will make it legal for airport security to rape each passenger and the American people would go along with it and do nothing. It's pathetic. DON'T ALLOW THEM TO DO THIS. If more people stood up against this, this **** wouldn't be happening.

It's all a show. A determined adversary would obviously attempt to bring something through in areas which are not searched which leads one to the unpleasant conclusion:each passenger should have all body cavities searched. If they do not search body cavities, there's no point to searching anywhere else. Thus, it's all a show more to get you to comply and forget you're an American. Learn to cower, to blindly accept authority. That's the true goal.

TSA screenings are borderline sexual assault, given the lower level definitions of it on the books. Touching someone's breasts or vaginal area, even over their clothes, constitutes it. Safety is one thing, but I think the TSA agents routine abuse their authority and airline passengers. I have a special needs child who has to be hand screened - he no longer travels. He wouldn't understand what these people do and we would make TMZ.

my husband works at an airport. You don't need any qualifications to be a TSA agent...think about it...some schlub out of high school, after ordering people around all day, they LIKE their job because they know people need to listen. just like any job, some are good at it and are nice...and then there is that one person who lets it all go to his/her head and WILL take the chance to molest someone because they know they can't get a person like that on their own. SO, do i believe her? yes. these aren't professionals...these are your average joes who never went to college. Yes Americans need to be protected but TSA is NOT the answer.

Wake up, Sheeple. The TSA is conditioning you to accept whatever they say and do to you. This is completely unacceptable! We need to abolish the TSA. Nothing and I mean NOTHING they are doing is making flying any safer! Only you SHEEPLE believe that lie!Baaaa!
She WAS sexually molested! Government mandated sexual molestation does not make everything alright.
MY PRIVACY > Your security.
Apparently TMZ and the majority of their readers are idiots.
You may go back to sleep now. Baaaa!

Hmmm... except Miss USA has much more credibility than your average TSA officer. I think she's telling the truth.

All of you complaining that she is telling the truth means that you all will do anything just like her for some money. Find any excuse to try to sue someone. First of all most of you probably don't have anyone to touch your stank tales and are mad when someone else gets touched and it is not you. STFU and get a life. I am so sick and tired of you dern people. If you don't want to get touched / scanned to get on the plane stay your counrty tales home.

This woman needs to get over herself! If she didn't want to be "violated" as she puts it then she should have gone through the body scanner. Rules are rules people and i'm glad she is not getting special treatment because of who she is!!!
