Inappropriate pat downs by TSA agents made a criminal offense by the Texas House. What will the TSA do now when they try an inappropriately touch an individual in an airport pat down. This could get interesting. Imagine a TSA agent being arrested in an airport? One thing is for certain, cell phone cameras and video will be running in all Texas airports for proof. The TSA anti-groping law would mean that not just children cannot be inappropriately touched, but also adults.
This will now be considered a criminal offense
The Texas House passed a bill that would make it a criminal offense for public servants to inappropriately touch travelers during airport security pat-downs.
Approved late Thursday night, the measure makes it illegal for anyone conducting searches to touch “the anus, sexual organ, buttocks, or breast of another person” including through clothing.
It also prohibits searches “that would be offensive to a reasonable person.”
We had stated in the past that the bill was gaining momentum … it has now passed.
