In Jersey City, NJ, Gian Verdelli has been arrested for the 169th time for groping a 28 year old woman on a PATH train. His victim provided a cell phone photo of her (alleged) attacker, and said that he had also groped her on June 30.
One wonders if the TSA gropers will be able to impact the incidence of unwanted sexual encounters aboard the public transportation systems. Passengers might trade an unofficial grope for an official one by a trained expert. At 61, Verdelli perhaps should be considered expert.
One also wonders if the law enforcement and judicial systems of New Jersey are aiming for the Biblical standard of forgiveness. With the 169 arrests, they were well on their way to 70 x 7, and certainly to the actual standard: until the very end.
Yukari Miyamae has been released and allowed to go home to Longmont Colorado. Felony charges will not be pressed, but she might face misdemeanor charges for grabbing a TSA agent. It seems that the altercation was over her wishing not to go through the scanner. She’s a frequent flier, and one can imagine the reasons why she has no love for the “rays”.
Miyamae has supporters (see comment) who wish for her to suffer no felony charges as she was defending herself from an impending assault on her person. One of them brought news of her motivations to this blog.
Pharmer understands COMPLETELY, and wishes to delay flying until the TSA learns to behave itself.
The usual economic pressures of boycotting would not induce this government (which is intent on downsizing the economic power of the U.S.) to rein in the TSA. There is hope that the next administration will want to assist the recovery of the airline industry by putting a stop to the groping.
Update on Yukari Miyamae’s name…. Fox news alternatively transliterates her name as Mihamae, or Miyamae. Go with Miyamae – sorry, facebook supporters.
Here’s Pharmer’s guess on the Kanji, hiragana and pronunciation.
Beware 95 year old women wearing adult incontinence products. Those things could fill up, explode, and blow up a plane! That’s the apparent view of Homeland Insecurity, which requires the TSA to be groping underneath the diapers of the extremely elderly.
Some people who are unlucky in love have resorted to satisfying themselves with purchased services.
TSA now offers a service for those who like to expose themselves……. the full body scanner guarantees a captive audience.
Also there is the standard pat down for those who like a bit of light personal service.
A more vigorous form of stimulation is now available (since October) called the “resolution pat down” if one prefers heavier physical contact with more attention given to the private parts.
These services can be provided in conjunction with short flights for quite a bit less money than one might pay in the the urban areas for clean, professional stimulation.
These obvious facts point towards a tax payer supported industry which will service a regular clientele of fliers who OPT IN for special sexual services at BARGAIN rates. An airline ticket and a bit of metal apparel to ring the alarm are the only requirements for admission to the TSA Relaxation Center.
You didn’t think your taxes would be at work this way, DID you!?
