TSA Grope Woman Concerned About Cancer From Body Scanners


Laws on sexual molestation not applied to TSA employees

The woman who became the focus of a fresh TSA controversy after she groped an airport screener and was subsequently arrested for “sex abuse,” was concerned about getting cancer from repeatedly having to pass through radiation-firing naked body scanners.

61-year-old Yukari Miyamae was arrested last week after she started arguing with TSA agent Barbara O’Toole at Terminal 4 in Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport.

When O’Toole told Miyamae she would have to undergo a full pat down if she refused to go through the body scanner, Miyamae responded, “Oh, like this,” and grabbed O’Toole’s breast.

Miyamae will not face felony charges but could still face a misdemeanor charge.

“TSA officials also say this all happened because the woman didn’t want to go through a body scanner for fear of getting cancer,” reports MyFox Phoenix, adding that Miyamae was a frequent flyer who traveled once a a week.

Despite the fact that Miyamae was arrested and jailed on accusations of “sex abuse,” TSA agents continue to remain free to commit identical abuses upon the American people, including children, the elderly and the disabled.

There shouldn’t even be a debate as to whether or not TSA workers can stick their hands down your pants or fondle a woman’s breasts. Not even a police officer or an FBI agent can legally lay a hand on you unless it’s in the course of an arrest.

As Steve Wagstaffe, the District Attorney in San Mateo County, told Alex Jones last year, merely touching someone against their will is a felony in California, just as it is across the country.

“If it is skin to skin, if someone were to take their hand and put it underneath somebody’s blouse and touch someone inappropriately and go skin to skin, that’s a felony, and if it’s done simply over the clothing, according to California law, that’s a misdemeanor,” said Wagstaffe.

Miyamae’s concerns about body scanners causing cancer are well founded.

Numerous highly respected universities and health bodies, including Johns Hopkins, Columbia University, the University of California, and the Inter-Agency Committee on Radiation Safety, have all warned that the health threat posed by the scanners has not been properly studied and could lead to increased cancer rates.

Despite the TSA lying in claiming that Johns Hopkins had verified the safety of the scanners, Dr Michael Love, who runs an X-ray lab at the department of biophysics and biophysical chemistry at the Johns Hopkins school of medicine, has publicly warned that “statistically someone is going to get skin cancer from these X-rays”.

A study conducted last year by Dr David Brenner, head of Columbia University’s center for radiological research, also found that the body scanners are likely to lead to an increase in a common type of skin cancer called basal cell carcinoma, which affects the head and neck.

As we reported last month, leaked documents published by the Electronic Privacy Information Center revealed how TSA workers became concerned over a “cancer cluster” amongst screening agents at Boston Logan International Airport, and how the federal agency tried to cover-up the complaints.

As a result of her stance against the TSA, Mihamae has become something of a folk hero. A Facebook page entitled “Acquit Yukari Miyamae” already has over 2,000 followers.
