A TSA screener at LAX has been convicted after requiring a female passenger to show him her breasts, and inspecting down her pants. He was sentended to 60 days in jail and to take classes on sexual compulsion.
The woman told investigators that Lomeli told her he had to look inside her bra to ensure she wasn’t hiding anything, had her hold her pants away from her waist for a check, and then said he would take her to a private room for further security screening, prosecutors said.
But when they were alone on an elevator, Lomeli told the woman he could perform the screening there and ordered her to lift her shirt and show her breasts, then looked down her pants, she said.
Lomeli then told the woman she was free to go and added that she had nice breasts, authorities said.
In Denver TSA screeners were flagging attractive passengers to ‘alarm’ so that colleagues could pat down their genitals. Think this is unusual? Over half of TSA employees have been accused of misconduct and over half of those multiple times, yet action is rarely taken. One particularly attractive former work colleague used to get patted down nearly ever time she’d fly, despite PreCheck and eschewing metal and liquids.
The TSA did publicly announce that pat downs would become more intimate but that it’s not sexual assault when the government does it.
TSA used to stand for ‘taking scissors away’ now it stands for ‘twisted sexual assualt’:
