Woman Screams For Help From Police As She Is Molested By TSA Agent At Phoenix Arizona International Airport – Son Videotaped Attack, And Was Harassed And Threatened With Arrest By TSA Agents

June 12, 2012

PHOENIX, ARIZONA – Footage show a woman screaming frantically for help in an airport terminal after claiming she was ‘molested’ by officials during a security pat down.

The unidentified passenger yells hysterically that she has been molested after a female security staff member touched her breast during the screening process at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, Arizona.

Video filmed by her son shows the woman bursting into tears after the alleged ‘sexual assault’, while other staff members tell her son to stop filming the distressing episode.

She shouts: ‘I want a police officer, I think she molested me. Her cries becoming louder and louder throughout the footage.

She adds: ‘I want a police officer now! She just molested me! For god’s sake somebody help me!’

Officials begin to surround her, creating a human shield between her and other passengers. Helpless, she holds her head and begins to weep

‘This was illegal. I can’t believe she just did that to me. How can none of them care? I want her arrested.’

The woman becomes more and more agitated before TSA officers demand that her son leave the area.

He continues to film the incident from afar, though several more officers harass him and threaten to arrest him if he does not stop.

Eventually, the weeping woman is escorted by police officers past her son.

The TSA didn’t immediately return the MailOnline’s request for comment on whether or not the woman’s complaint could be verified.

The family had been subjected to similarly ‘invasive’ security scrutiny at the same airport earlier in the year in a similar video.

On that occasion, they had protested against TSA that the security screening had violated their Constitutional Rights.

The incident is not the first time TSA officials have been accused of being heavy-handed.

Thousands of Americans have reacted furiously to the imposition of new airport security measures, including full body scans and hands-on pat downs.

Those who refuse the ‘invase’ pat downs risk arrest and an $11,000 fine.

Pennsylvania Judge John Cleland Won’t Protect Identities Of Child Rape Victims During Pedophile Jerry Sandusky’s Trial

June 4, 2012

PENNSYLVANIA – Jury selection in the trial of Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State assistant football coach charged with child rape, is scheduled to start Tuesday in Pennsylvania.

A judge last week denied his attorneys’ latest bid for a delay, allowing the case to move forward.

Sandusky, 68, has been under house arrest since being charged with sexually abusing 10 boys over 14 years. Prosecutors allege he met some of his accusers through Second Mile, a charity he created for underprivileged children.

He has pleaded not guilty to the charges. According to a source close to the Sandusky family, he is expected to attend court Tuesday.

The allegations against Sandusky led to the firing of iconic Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno only months before he died of complications from lung cancer.

Several of the people whom prosecutors accuse Sandusky of abusing asked a judge to protect their identities at trial.

However, Judge John Cleland on Monday ruled the alleged victims’ identities may not be concealed during the trial, although they will be protected through the jury selection process.

“Courts are not customarily in the business of withholding information,” Cleland’s ruling said. “Secrecy is thought to be inconsistent with the openness required to assure the public that the law is being administered fairly and applied faithfully.”

But, the judge noted, “It is also to be hoped that various news organizations that will report on the trial will use what has become their professional custom to protect the privacy of alleged victims.”

CNN generally does not identify alleged victims of sexual assault.

Those asking for their identities to be concealed included one man known simply as Victim 4. His attorney, Ben Andreozzi, said he believes his client, now 28, is the strongest witness for the prosecution and will be called to testify first.

“In society, sometimes we question why rape victims are reluctant to come forward,” Andreozzi said Monday after the ruling. “So now we have our answer. … We are disappointed.”

“We are not asking to close the courtroom, only to use a pseudonym,” he said.

His client will still testify, he said, “but at what expense to his emotional well-being?”

He said he expects the defense to attack his client on the basis of a meeting he had with Sandusky in the years after the alleged abuse.

“My client couldn’t break free,” said the attorney, describing the relationship between Victim 4 and Sandusky as “complex.”

Mike McQueary, a former graduate student considered to be another key witness in the Sandusky case, has testified that he alerted Paterno in 2002 that he’d seen what appeared to be Sandusky sexually assaulting a boy, an allegation authorities didn’t learn of until years later.

But prosecutors said later that the incident took place about a year earlier than what was originally alleged, causing defense attorneys for two former Penn State officials to argue that one of the charges should now be dropped.

Tim Curley, Penn State’s former athletic director, and Gary Schultz, a former university vice president who oversaw campus police, have been charged with perjury and failing to report the alleged sexual assault of a child. Both of them have pleaded not guilty, and their attorneys have said that prosecutors “charged this case before (they) knew the facts.”

After news of the scandal broke last year, The New York Times published an extensive interview in which Sandusky attempted to clarify his relationships with young people.

“If I say, ‘No, I’m not attracted to young boys,’ that’s not the truth,” he said, according to the story. “Because I’m attracted to young people — boys, girls — I …”

His lawyer, who was present at the interview, spoke up at that point to note that Sandusky is “not sexually” attracted to them.

“Right. I enjoy — that’s what I was trying to say — I enjoy spending time with young people. I enjoy spending time with people,” Sandusky continued. “I mean, my two favorite groups are the elderly and the young.”
