Mom Goes to Jail For Protecting Daughter From TSA

March 4, 2012
Ann-Marie Murrell, Patriot Update

People are calling her ‘overprotective’ — I call her a hero.

Andrea Fornella Abbott was arrested when she refused to allow her daughter (age withheld) to be sexually touched by TSA agents. reports that Abbott was arrested at Nashville airport when she “shouted and swore” at TSA agents, telling them she wouldn’t allow her young daughter to have her “crotch grabbed”.

Abbott’s daughter was singled-out for a pat-down after Abbott refused to go through the airports body scanners.

According to The Tennessean, security officer Sabrina Birge told police that Abbott said “in a very stern voice with quite a bit of attitude” that Abbott and her young daughter would not go through the Rapiscan X-ray machine.  The officer tried telling Abbott that the X-ray was “safer than her cell phone” but Abbott responded, “I still don’t want someone to see our bodies naked.”

Next, Abbott tried to take a video of the TSA agents with her cell phone—and that’s when police swooped in, handcuffed her and carted her off to jail.  There were no reports on what happened to the young daughter during the ruckus

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Good for her, because those machines are not safe and have not been tested by an outside, independent agency, not hired by the govt, for safety! Children and adults both should not be touched without cause and thats why I will not fly. I will not go through the soros, merchoff scanner they have millions invested in, and I will be not be legally raped by low life, non professional people who have no medical license. But they will all have cancer within 10 years, most likely, by working this type of job. This is totally unnecessary and the govt has to quit being paranoid!!!! The airlines are losing more and more business and people refuse to fly because of this invasion of privacy!!
