Sexual Molestation at the Transportation Security Administration

"Count me among the many, many Americans who are unwilling to be seen virtually naked and/or physically groped by a government employee," writes Catholic Online's Jennifer Hartline, "a grateful Catholic, a proud Army wife and mother of four precious children (one in Heaven)" — New TSA Security Measures Go Too Far: Seen Naked or 'Enhanced' Pat-Down? I'll Drive, Thanks.

"TSA swears that these pat-downs are done by a person of the same gender, but the reports I've read this past week say otherwise, that woman are being patted-down by men, and that even small children are being searched by agents of the opposite sex," she notes.

"Along with the gross bodily invasion, my objection to these new security measures lies with TSA agents themselves," she later writes. "There may be some agents who defy the trend, but time and time again, I found them to be extremely unhelpful, unprofessional, and rude."

(Imagine, "unhelpful, unprofessional, and rude" government employees! That is one difference I've found in Korea; here, government employees tend to know their role, and remember who pays their salaries.)
