The perverts at TSA who enjoy touching little girls‘ and boys‘ genitals as well as the genitals of a former Miss USA face House Bill 1937 which will codify in law what we already know. HB 1937 could be used to make the perverts at TSA registered sex offenders. They already enjoy the privilege of fondling the genitalia of children and adults while getting paid to do so. This law would allow Texas to register them as sex offenders (which they are) and fine and imprison them. Let’s look a bit more into this.
The House Research Organization bill analysis states that:
According to the Penal Code, sec. 39.03 a public servant acting under his or her office commits a class A misdemeanor (up to one year in jail and/or a maximum fine of $4,000) if he or she:
- intentionally subjects another to mistreatment or to arrest, detention, search, seizure, dispossession, assessment, or lien that he or she knows is unlawful;
- intentionally denies or impedes another in the exercise or enjoyment of any right, privilege, power, or immunity, knowing his or her conduct is unlawful; or
- intentionally subjects another to sexual harassment.
CSHB 1937 would amend Penal Code sec. 39.03 to provide that a public servant would commit an offense if, while acting under his or her office and without probable cause, the public servant performed a search for the purpose of granting access to a publicly accessible building or form of transportation and intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly:
- touched the anus, sexual organ, buttocks, or breast of another person, including touching through clothing; or
- touched the other person in a manner that would be offensive to a reasonable person.
A public servant would include a U.S. officer, employee, or agent; anyone contracted to perform on behalf of a U.S. branch, department, or agency; or anyone acting under federal law. The public servant would have a defense to prosecution if he or she performed the search pursuant to and consistent with an explicit and applicable grant of federal statutory authority that was consistent with the U.S. Constitution.
Now opponents of this Bill will tell you that we can’t enact it because the Federals need the authority to “keep us safe” while travelling, because those evil terrorists want to kill us all. That’s hogwash. This is purely about money, as nearly everything in politics is. Enacting horrifically embarrassing sexual assaults upon people who deign not to irradiate themselves with untested & unsafe machines which take naked pictures of you that they keep is how they get people to actually go through the machines. They make such a bad experience out of being physically searched, that most people just go through the scanners, thinking nothing of it.
Opponents of HB 1937 think it is imperative for our safety. Again, hogwash. What is really needed is Israeli-style airport security. Those guys know how to analyze factors of travelers and determine if any of them are carrying contraband. They have a long track record of effectiveness as well.
The fact is, that there is no probable cause for these illegal searches. If you have not demonstrated any behavior or mannerisms indicative of criminal intent, then you cannot legally be searched without your permission. Tying the illegal search to the desire to board a plane for travel is where they get you. You are free to travel. You are free from illegal searches. That is… until you try to hop on a plane.
Call your State Reps immediately and notify them of your desire for their support on this Bill. Otherwise, the TSA perverts will just continue to get a free ride in fondling the genitalia of children. Always remember that these people are CHOOSING to stay employed by the TSA in order to fondle your small children. People of conscience would immediately say NO to such and order. Obviously, this is unconscionable.
